Overview

About the property

House in Preveranges, Le Berry, Loire Valley, France - Privacy, Calm And Unbelievably Beautiful Landscapes

This rustic yet tastefully decorated self-catering holiday home features all modern amenities, including a private heated swimming pool, yet is located in the midst of idyllic rural farmlands, just several kilometres from the virtual epicentre of France. The pool and terrace overlook the large pasture behind the house, which slopes away toward the neighbouring meadowlands and boasts mature nut and fruit trees. There are no neighbouring houses adjoining the property, as it is bordered only by pastures and a working farm. Utter peace and tranquillity!

Why Marc chose Cher

This area is absolutely stunning, unspoiled, rolling hills with trees and fields as far as the eye can see, the occasional old church spire. If you love a natural rural environment, with lakes and streams and forest walks, then it doesn't get any better than this.

What makes this house unique

This house is loaded with everything you could possibly want or need if all you desire is to hang out with family and friends. It has a private heated pool, pingpong, fussball, a nearby lake with sandy beach, boating and restaurants. It's centrally located to some of the best regions of France for wine, chateaux, restaurants and historical and cultural attractions. Whether you want to hang out or take day trips, Maison Le Jubeau gives you the best France has to offer.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Merci beaucoup! Truly a wonderful couple of weeks. What a beautiful house and setting. The sun kept us beautifully warm and the pool then cooled us off magnificently. The house is extremely well equipped and you've clearly thought of everything...all in all, absolutely fantastic and we'll definitely be back. Thank you very, very much! Margaret, Katherine, John, Alan, Keith, Richard, Hilary, Calum and Christina, Herefordshire



Thank you! We've had a wonderful holiday. The house is beautiful as is the surrounding countryside. It was lovely to have activities like the table tennis and football to keep the teenagers amused. The swing in the pasture is very relaxing, too! Many thanks. Tony, Sue, Katherine, Nina, Sarah, Ryan, Molly, Alex, Adam, John and Becky, Worcester



Best family holiday we've ever had! The venue is fantastic for big family holidays. Can't recommend it highly enough. David, Claire, Charlie & William, London

Notes:
Notes on accommodation: The house is ideal for large extended family vacations or for several families vacationing together. We are very family- and child-friendly, with a good supply of recreational facilities, toys, games, tricycles, children’s' bikes, etc. The pool area is also well secured to prevent little ones from wandering in unattended. We have Sky TV with a movie package as well as lots of cartoon channels to keep the little ones occupied early in the morning (!) so Mum and Dad can sleep in. The kitchen is very well equipped and enormous, with a table that comfortably sits 12 people, and there are two large picnic tables on the terrace for eating outside. The hamlet is very small (5 houses) and we are the only one on our side of the road, so no immediate neighbours. There are two small barns on the property and an old separate bread oven that now serves as our pool house. There are several swings (one even the grown-ups will love) and a lovely big barbecue. The ideal spot for a relaxing holiday! Outside: The pool is 10x5m, private and heated (with a real heat pump). The pool area is enclosed and has a gate with a spring-lock mechanism so that small ones can't wander in unobserved. There are five comfortable recliners and half a dozen plastic deck chairs for use around the pool or on the terrace. The large teak picnic table seats 12 and has a huge parasol for sunny days, and there is a second table that seats another six people if necessary. We have a large barbecue grill and also a ping-pong table on the terrace. Below the terrace, a large mowed pasture slopes away from the house - so there's lots of room to run around a play. Utility Room: Whirlpool washer and dryer (though there is also a clothesline in the pool area), a large separate freezer (helps to cut down on those grocery runs!), and a large tank-type water heater... plenty for numerous hot showers. There’s also a separate WC here. Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: Towels and bed linen provided. Cleaning can be arranged privately if required during your stay. Laundry facilities are available should you require clean sheets and/or towels during your stay. Pool towels are not provided.

Best family holiday we ever had! The venue is fantastic for big family get-togethers.

--David, Claire, Charlie & William

We have had a most fantastic week with our three sons and their families. We loved the house, the pool and the terrace. Thank you so much for sharing your lovely home with us.

--The Wainwright family

Lovely house, well equipped kitchen - especially for the budding Jamie

Oliver's amongst us. Pool was loved by the children, especially when the

weather turned warm. There were 12 of us including a baby and the house

welcomed us all with plenty of room to spare. A great week was had by all.

Location

Coast/Beach:

There is a beautiful man-made lake at Sidialles, about 14km from the house. There is a beautiful sandy beach with supervised swimming and a gracious grassy knoll for sunbathing and picnicking. The lake has a restaurant and snack bar and there are reasonably priced rentals of everything from pedal boats to small sailboats, canoes and kayaks. If you can pull yourself away from the pool, this is a lovely alternative.

Travel:

We're not far from either of two regional airports: Limoges (which services flights by discount airlines Ryan Air!) is just 1 hour and 50 minutes by car and the airport at Clermont-Ferrand is just about an hour and forty-five minutes away. We are also readily accessible from two major French airports: Paris/Orly is 2½-3 hours away by car, as is the Lyon airport. By train, you can travel either to Montluçon (45 minutes away by car) or Châteauroux, just over an hour from Le Jubeau.

Further Details:

For much more detailed information about what there is to see and do in the area, please visit at our dedicated website.

History buffs will find châteaux, ancient churches and abbeys, Roman ruins and more all within easy reach by car.

Nature lovers will find lovely trails, woods, the Indre and Cher rivers and some fine geological and volcanic parks. For you riders.

There's a variety of stables nearby and several good tennis and golf facilities are also within easy reach. Wine lovers can visit the nearby wineries around Châteaumeillant that are known especially for their pleasant rosés.
