Welcome in Berry, for rural and heritage hollidays

In the center of the France :
Our home is situated at 1 km of Vallenay - a town with 700 inhabitants in the Berry. It's a country of the centre of the France.
The House was built at the beginning of the century and it is quite typical. It is in the country and the garden, with plenty of trees can be a wonderful playground for children. The property is lovely and particularly pleasant in Summer.
The fields are around our home and here are a lot of walks and a river (le Cher) cross our village
In summer the children like swimming when the weather is fair ! You could discover the Berry and you will have the opportunity to visit the most prestigious castles of the Loire (Chambord, Chenonceaux, Amboise, Valencay, Villandry, …). In addition to that, there are many more things to discover close to our house (Abbeys, Churches, Castles, Forests, Vineyards, Walking places, …). 
Finally Paris is only 2 hours from Bourges by train.
