despite the difficult start - don't follow the google maps directions, get to Breil & phone! Adrian & Sally couldn't be more helpful - even drove out to us so we could follow to the cottage.
Once there, the cottage definately fit the bill for what we were after - a week of chilling out.,Having been to the area before we did not visit the plentiful sites/chateaus nearby but they're there if it's what you're looking for, instead we had one of the most content dogs in the world going for walks here, there & everywhere.
Of course the counter to getting away from everything means that it is quite remote, however the cottage is well equiped to fend for yourselves and there are plenty of markets, shops & supermarkets just a short drive away (and of course restaurants).
The very comfortable bed - actually a double & a single are up a quite tight spiral staircase, so that and the remoteness probably don't make it suitable for older travellers, but as long as you can climb & duck (low beams - at 6 foot I averaged one head bump a day!) it's very comfortable and nicely laid out. The bathroom is also upstairs.
Downstairs there's a sofa bed and a dining table, but even in slightly overcast weather we still managed to spend most of our time outside, where the chickens & geese roamed freely and Billy & Bertie (Adrian & Sallys dogs) would often appear to see if our dog was coming out to play!
All in all, highly recomended as a perfect escape from real life

This was a perfect place to celebrate my husband's 60th birthday. It was so peaceful and tranquil and our family were very comfortably accommodated in the spotlessly clean newly renovated cottage and converted barn.
There was plenty to do with wandering around and exploring the extensive grounds and easy walks around the beautiful lake, the younger members of the group enjoyed taking the boat and canoe on the lake and had many bike rides (which we hired from our hosts). We also found many chateaux and quaint French villages to visit and ate many very reasonably priced meals when we weren't eating in using fruit and veg either from Adrian's garden or from a local fruit farm. Adrian and Sally (hosts) are very welcoming and helpful with an amazing amount of useful local knowledge.
The accommodation was very clean, the kitchens well appointed (apart from no dishwasher!) and the beds very comfortable.
We will definitely return!!
