The glass fronted elevated garden room has views over the garden and river. In the kitchen area there is a wood-burner for use in the cooler months and electric heaters throughout the rest of the property. Upstairs is open plan consisting of a bedroom and a bathroom with roll top bath. Wi-Fi now available. The cottage is set in a large mature garden which is bordered by the River Indre and the garden is visited by a variety of wildlife, lizards, frogs, bats, butterflies, red squirrels, coypus and a red deer was seen in the garden in June 2016. One can see a variety of birds including stone chats, black caps, gold finches, green finches, woodpeckers both green and spotted, heron and heard for the first time in May 2011, the nightingale, which now makes yearly visits. The town of La Chatre is only 5 minutes from the cottage, with bars, restaurants (French, Italian, Chinese), patisseries, charcuteries, boutiques etc. Market day, Saturday morning, turns the normally quiet town into a buzz of activity as people arrive from miles around. On Saturdays it's best to leave the car at the cottage and take the short walk to the town centre. There are also 3+ good supermarkets to choose from, one within walking distance of the cottage. La Chatre has an indoor/outdoor swimming pool and for motor racing enthusiasts there is a formula 3 track on the outskirts of the town. The village of Nohant, only 5minutes drive away, was the home of George Sand the female author whose friends included Chopin, Berlioz and Delacroix to name a few. Her house and gardens are open to the public and Nohant hosts many musical events. The surrounding countryside is flat and ideal for walking or cycling. There are many pretty little villages nearby to explore - the picturesque towns of Argenton-sur-Creuse, St Gaultier, Gargilesse all within a 40minute drive. There are beautiful lakes, gardens and chateaux nearby - Sarzay, St Chartier and Culan all within 20 minutes drive. Chateaux Valencay (70 mins) hosts beautiful Candlelit Evenings in August. If gardens are of interest the beautiful Priory Notre-Dame d'Orsan (featured in Monty Don's gardens of France) is 50 minutes away. The stunning gardens of Apremont-sur-Allier inspired by Vita Sackville West's garden in Sissinghurst is 90 minutes away and the unbelievably peaceful Brenne National Parc, a lake district famous for birdwatching, is only 60/70 minutes drive. Comments from previous guests: 'We really enjoyed the cottage - peace and tranquility yet within walking distance of bars & food. Only fault was that we had only booked for a week.' Stuart - Lincs. 'We spent our honeymoon at your cottage. We'd just like to say thank you for the wonderful time. Everything was perfect!' Sean-Co Tyrone 'The perfect getaway, Colin and Marian gave excellent info, would go back in a sec!' Gayle - Edinburgh We had such a wonderful relaxing week at La Maison Rose that we might just have to do it all over again! Steve and Sarah, Lancaster 'Thank you so much for letting us stay in your beautiful French home. We had a fantastic time, relaxing in the garden. The decoration of the house was absolutely gorgeous too.' Kate - London 'A really lovely cottage, in a great part of France. Would recommend to anyone.' Peter - Rugby Just wanted to say a big thank you for letting us borrow your beautiful house in La Chatre at such short notice. We were desperate to get away and have a relaxing time and thats just what we did. My husband loved the fishing and caught a couple of really big fish. We loved the whole area and didn't want to come home. Larraine - Felixstowe Just wanted to say what a wonderful holiday we had in your cottage. We had a couple of rainy days where we lounged in the house and the rest of the week was scorching hot - so we lounged in the garden! Your garden was lovely and relaxing, we saw lots of butterflies, lizards, frogs bats, and birds. We saw the coypu twice and saw an owl too. The house was even more gorgeous than we imagined and it was lovely sitting in the garden room in the evening with the windows open and a glass of wine.Mark & Mandy - Notts We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. If our 4 week French holiday had to be curtailed to only 7 days at La Maison Rose it would have made the long trip over worthwhile. Brian & Susan - Queensland, Austrailia We have so enjoyed La Maison Rose! Every day has been a dream. Best wishes M&C for their wonderful hospitality. We very much hope to return again one day soon. Gabrielle & Jan - Hants April We've had a wonderful relaxing week and really made use of the sunroom and BBQ. Your garden is quite spectacular, the house quirky and very French and the setting quite amazing. Tricia & Bill - Glasgow. Kudos to the staff! The building and grounds are wonderfully maintained.

Getting around
WINE TOURS New for 2019: We have joined forces with “Gouts du Berry” a local company who organise tours of vineyards in the region. Excursions are either ½ day for local wineries or a full day (including a gourmet picnic in the vines) for vineyards in the stunning Sancere area. You will be collected from, and returned to La Maison Rose as part of the tour so there’s no need to worry about how much wine you taste/consume. Full details on the tours offered can be found on their website, google search for GoutsduBerry
