La Pichonette

La Pichonette means rest, reading, walking, cycling, cooking. Visit markets, towns and castles. Soak in the sun or in the shade in a garden of 800 m2. La Pichonette lies less than 300 km south of Paris. So after a early start in the morning and taking the train at Chateauroux, you can make an excursion of one day to Paris. It is almost always 4 to 5 degrees warmer than in the Netherlands. The sun feels really warmer!

Only the sound of a cow, a buzzard, a tractor in the distance or an occasional passing car on the way down.

On arrival you open the shutters, put your luggage upstairs and store your groceries in the fridge. And then you go on the terrace. Maybe with a glass of wine? You can make the bed later with your own familiar covers and sheets. Are you going to cook yourself, or do you choose the first evening for the convenience of the restaurant in the village? If it is dark, you remember what it was like because in Les Pichons the nights are really dark. You look which constellations you already knew. The Big Dipper is easy to find. If you sit very still you will hear and see outside nocturnal animals.

In the morning on the way to the bakery you may spot a deer. Today cycling? In the surroundings, you can enjoy cycling or mountainbiken. Or do want to go to the market in Lignieres or Saint-Août? Or is it going the beach all day and swimming in the lakes of Éguzon? Or are you going to visit the Bourges Cathedral? Or one of the many castles and manor houses. The brochures are ready for you in the antique closet. There is plenty of choice for all your stay!

If it is a bit cooler you can sit inside by the stove (wood is free), a sofa and an armchair with enough (reading) light. The sofa can be pulled out into a double bed for other (un)expected guest. There is a large dining table. Cooking enthusiasts will appreciate the five-burner stove with oven or use outside BBQ. A Senseo and a filter coffee machine, pans, wok, casserole dishes, blender, fridge freezer and plenty of space for your own stuff to make the kitchen complete.

For a comfortable sleep, there is a very comfortable, upstairs in the spacious bedroom with en-suite, while retaining the enchanting details like the beams and limestone walls. The bed is a two-seater divan 1.90 x 2.00. There are four duvets and pillows, there is a 6-drawers comode and there are two racks for your suitcase (s). There is plenty of room for a travel cot for the youngest children.

In the garden there is garden furniture and a BBQ.

La Pichonette is for a while .... Your own home in France.

At the end of your holiday you make La Pichonette clean. You will leave knowing that you are well rested and have enjoyed your stay.

La Pichonette is a long-cherished desire to have their own place in France where I can enjoy their holidays, read, and sometimes prepare lessons and translate (I am a teacher and interpreter / translator Spanish) I also hire La Pichonette people who can enjoy tranquility and who can enjoy a typical old house and there a short time care to wear.
