We booked the cottage and were delighted it was just as we had hoped - so warm, comfortable and beautifully furnished for a relaxing holiday. Nice to have various zones to enjoy eg sunny sitting area for reading, nicely furnished winter lounge which looks directly onto the patio and river. Kitchen very well equipped, 2 bathrooms. The patio area is fantastic for eating dinner, having a drink and reading. The view to the river and countryside is relaxing and quiet. We used the bikes for riding around the village and local lanes.
If anything could be improved - a small request for new non stick fry pan would be perfect !

Liked best: Comfort, spacious cottage. Perfect location in a quiet village with view directly onto River Creuse
Liked least: If you are after coffee shops and restaurants - this village is too small ( did not bother us)

“Lovely location with all the amenities you need”

A small group of us had another lovely holiday (2nd visit) in Barrou which is a typical French village. The location of the property is great, overlooking the river and we had many happy hours playing boules on the river bank with a glass of wine in hand after a day of sight seeing in the locality. Had a fun night at a local hop in the next village and everyone made us welcome. Riverside cottage has all the equipment you need and facility for self catering but is also near enough to restaurants which are very good value. Enjoy yourself and embrace French life!
