A beautiful Logis plus cottage in the village of Bourseguin near the forest of Mervent, offering superbly spacious self catering accommodation. Le Logis offers comfortable large 5 bedroom accommodation for up to 12 people, Les Lavandes is a detached 3 bedroom cottage for up to 8 people within the grounds and overlooking the large courtyard of the Logis.
Both properties benefit from the large walled garden of the Logis with children's play area (including sandpit), large trampoline, badminton, croquet and the beautiful securely walled heated swimming pool (11m x 5m plus 3m x 3m extended steps creating an ideal separate area for babies and toddlers). The swimming pool is heated from 1 May (or earlier depending on the weather) until mid September.
There is also a covered games area with table tennis, table football and skittles, and beyond the garden is our own field with wild flowers ideal for football, kiteflying, blackberry picking and cycling on our homegrown cycle track or butterfly maze. Alternatively you could just relax in a quiet shady corner - our grounds are loved by all our visitors from toddlers to great grandparents.
There is a public tennis court 1/2 mile away (rackets provided). Free use of our large selection of adults and children's bicycles in included, ideal for exploring the surrounding countryside and forest. The forest starts at Bourneau (1 mile away) and there are many quiet country lanes and hamlets to discover around Bourseguin, with pockets of woodland, vineyards, sunflowers and orchards; fields with horses, goats and donkeys; and the occaisional secluded château - real France on your doorstep.
The owners, Jerry and Abi and their two children, are resident in the cottage adjoining the Logis, and are always happy to provide any help, information and recommendations. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions, special requests, or require assistance organising a special event.
