Holiday house

Le Petit Bonheur


The holiday home Le Petit Bonheur is an ideal base for visiting Briare, Bourges, Sancerre and Nevers. The landscape is rolling, hilly with beautiful views. The address 10 Rue du Val de Loire is in the center of the village of Santranges, in the Loire Valley. It is a detached house with a simple garden between the houses of the village. You can relax in the leafy garden.

Le Petit Bonheur is very suitable for the summer holidays or to take a week off. Walking, visiting cities, viewing vineyards and tasting wine, especially in Sancerre and Menetou Salon. When it gets a little cooler, it is wonderful to be at home with the electric heating and the cozy wood-burning stove.

It is a French residential house, entrance door in the middle, left and right a window. To the left is the large kitchen diner, approx. 5x5 meter, kitchen with fridge, induction hob, dishwasher and double sink. In the kitchen there is a dining table for 4 people and in the cozy wood-burning stove the 3-seater sofa plus 2 armchairs.

To the right of the house is the bedroom with a fireplace, old-fashioned tomettes, linen cupboard and chest of drawers, a double bed 160x200 and a desk for your computer, telephone and all other things that need to be charged and possibly a quiet workplace. And of course a pleasant armchair, that is right with the fireplace.

The corridor to the toilet, bathroom and garden bedroom is an extension of the entrance door. And the door to the garden.
The garden is 240m2, first a terrace with a brand new garden set, under a shelter in the sunny part of the garden.
Behind the white fence the spacious shady garden with a large cherry tree, an apple tree, plum tree and in the back the garden the hazel. If you find it, you can reap all the benefits. The area in the back of the garden borders the castle garden. Under the leafy trees is cool shade, wonderful to read your favorite book with a glass of cool Sancerre at hand. There is a wide garden bench with a rustic table. The garden is rural, even woody.

The bedroom is 3.40 mx 3.00 m, there are 2 beds of 80x200, which can be used separately or together. Twin beds in French, with 2 bedside tables, lamps, a place to hang the clothes and an open cupboard to store the clothes.
Next to the bedroom is the bathroom, 3 meters x 1.60 meters, with a spacious shower, large sink and washing machine.
The toilet is separate, near the shower. The entire property is on the ground floor.

Spring from the end of March to the end of May is beautiful. All trees are flowering, the bushes are green and the sun already gives warmth. It doesn't matter which way you go, every direction has its own characteristics. We, experienced residents, enjoy it time and again. Around mid-May the heat continues and the summer begins, which lasts until October. In the summer the cottage stays nice and cool inside.

My in-laws live nearby, so they take care of the reception of the guests and the maintenance of the house. They live 25 km from Santranges, in the water town of Briare, and are therefore nearby to help you in an emergency.

Hello, my name is Susan. I live with my family in Amstelveen. It has always been a great wish to buy a picturesque cottage in France. In May 2019 I bought the house. It is wonderful to avoid all the hustle and bustle in the city and to drive to this nice house. It is in the center of France making it also a great starting point to travel through to other parts of France and around it. It is only 6.5 hours from our house. I would like to share this house with you!

Location & tips

Additional information

Santranges is een dorpje met 445 inwoners. In het centrum wonen naar schatting 100 inwoners. Het centrum heeft 3 wegen, die een driehoek vormen van elk 140mtr lang. Daarbij zijn ook de kerk, gemeentehuis, minikruidenier en per 1 augustus een restaurantje. Het kasteel kun je ook meerekenen. De tuin van Le Petit Bonheur grenst aan de kasteelgrond.
Het huis is heel geschikt om er in de herfst een weekje tussenuit te gaan. Wat is er mooier dan de wijngaarden te bekijken, wijn te proeven en te kopen in Sancerre en dan thuis bij de warme houtkachel van de wijn en geitenkaas te genieten.
