History of Pougues-Les-Eaux:
Pougues became renowned as a spa town under the French King Henri III. His doctor, Jean Pidoux (maternel grand-father of Jean de La Fontaine), analysed the springs of Pougues and discovered that the waters had curative properties for the digestive system. Doctor Jean Pidoux convinced Henri III to come to Pougues and take the waters. He came with his mother, Catherine de Medicis. He left Pougues cured! This "miracle" made Pougues renowned for its water amongst kings and aristocrats. And from then on, kings of France and famous people like Henri IV, Louis XIV, Gaston d'Orleans, Prince de Conti, Jean-Jacques Rousseau, and many others came to Pougues.

We initially thought the accommodation was a bit small but we really warmed to the apartmen after a day or so. The owners have made it very comfortable and there were very helpful key holders on hand in case of any problems. The tourist office is very close and has good opening hours. Pougues - les -Eaux was central to many lovely scenic areas and we enjoyed sunny picnic lunches even though our holiday was from late September to mid October. Pougues itself has a slightly faded splendour about it which we loved but it also has good shops and restaurants and a very modern Casino. If you are a motorbike fan ( as we are ) Magny Cours is 25 minutes away and very easy to drive to. Nevers and other towns in this area are well worth visiting. There is a train running through Pougues to Nevers if you don't want to drive. We had a brilliant holiday and would recommend the apartment as a base.
