The house

  • Quiet, rural area with some agricultural activity

Holiday home Villa La Prele is a maison de maitre from 1883, but completely adapted to today's needs. There is a fully equipped kitchen with all the necessary items (nespresso including milk frother, dishwasher, large smeg gas cooker including 2 electric ovens (large and small), combi microwave, grill, toaster, blender etc). The furnishing belongs to the house with a mix of attractive classic antique furniture and modern accessories. There is also a TV with a chromecast to stream the desired channels via your own phone or tablet. And of course there is internet with WIFI (super fast fibre-optic internet). There are plenty of towels and tea towels in the cupboard. But there are also several games, for both big and small. In the shed there are several bikes (children's bikes and adult bikes) and also plenty of 'outdoor toys' including a large table tennis table. Downstairs is an outdoor toilet and if you go up the stairs there are spacious bedrooms. two bedrooms have double beds (180 by 200) and one room has two single beds. In the master bedroom (which has air conditioning) there is a baby bed (incl. baby bath; playpen mat; potty etc) and there is also a toddler bed.
The bathroom has a vanity unit with sink and a new shower (rain shower; waterfall and side radiators), a toilet and washing machine.

We also have a mini 'wellness'. Consisting of a double infrared sauna and a 2nd shower cabin with a rain shower and jet streams.

The (heated 28 degrees) private pool is open from April to September. The pool has a depth of 1.20 m to 2.20 m. Diving is prohibited. The pool is equipped with an alarm that can of course be turned off when swimming. If the house is rented by people with small children, a fence is placed around the pool (see photo). That does give such a safe feeling!
In short: If you are not looking for a tourist attraction but an atmospheric house in the middle of the quiet 'campagne' where you can completely unwind, then experience in this house the fine French life! 'Vive La France'.

Dogs are not allowed

Availability of 'Villa La Prele'


Click on image to open an interactive map

Villa La Prele is situated on a dead-end road. Because the garden is situated backwards, you will not be bothered by the neighbours who live opposite the villa. The other neighbours are 200 metres away and will not bother you. The neighbours have a doghouse. You may hear dogs now and then. The garden is surrounded by meadows and trees. You may see sheep being moved from one pasture to another. This is nice to see, because this is done with very trained dogs. Because it is a dead end road and only used by residents, it is very quiet in terms of traffic.

Villa la Prele is situated at the edge of the village. The bakery is 5 minutes by car (or by bike of course). And in the village there is also a supermarket: U-express. That is very nice for the daily shopping.

At 20 minutes driving distance lies St. Amand Montrond. This is a reasonable town with restaurants, large supermarkets, water sports facilities and shops. At 20 minutes drive in the other direction lies La Chatre. This is a similar town as St. Amand Montrond but slightly more atmospheric in terms of town centre.

At 60 minutes by car is the large city of Bourges with the Cathedrale St. Etienne. A truly beautiful cathedral that is on the world heritage list of Unesco.
On the other hand, 60 minutes away lies another large city: Montlucon where you can enjoy shopping, both in the old town and in the new shopping area.

    We hebben een heerlijke week gehad in jullie prachtig huis. Bij aankomst zat er een hek om het zwembad, super handig voor de kleine kinderen. Aan alles is gedacht in het huis en alles is aanwezig. Ook was het schoon en fris in huis bij aankomst. De kinderen hebben uren kunnen spelen met al het speelgoed in de ’schuur’. De tuin was tevens prachtig om in te spelen. De trampolines waren een groot succes. Het weer was iets minder, waardoor we op bepaalde momenten konden zwemmen. Het plezier was er niet minder om. Het water was goed van temperatuur. Elke dag buiten gegeten. De bbq is flink gebruikt. De wijn smaakte goed en ook het fruit in de tuin hebben we geproefd! Er zijn super veel plekjes in en om het huis waar je gezellig kan zitten. We voelden ons helemaal thuis, wat een rust en komen graag een keertje terug!

    Ahhh wat weer een mooie recensie! Heel erg bedankt voor deze fijne woorden! Daar doen we het voor! Fijn dat jullie zo hebben genoten!

    Wij hebben genoten van dit rustige verblijf. Leuk om met een persoonlijke brief verwelkomt te worden. De map met alle info was ook heel handig. Wij hadden heel mooi weer dus het zwembad was geen overbodige luxe! Op het nieuwe houten terras naast het zwembad hebben we dagelijks gegeten en in de ligzetels gelegen om te lezen of gewoon te genieten. De schommelstoel is ook heel aangenaam om in te liggen. We willen er thuis zo ook één! De lounge hielden we voor 's avonds om nog eens samen te zitten. De airco was dan ook heel aangenaam in de grootste slaapkamer. De andere kamers hadden een molen maar echt afkoelen deed het daar niet. Misschien kan dit in de toekomst nog voorzien worden. Jullie huis is vast en zeker een aanrader!

    Comment from Bianca Huiskamp

    Beste familie Van Eenoo,
    Bedankt voor jullie mooie reactie! Ja, dat zonneterras is idd erg fijn (vinden wij ook!). En die schommelstoel is mijn Moederdag cadeau! Maar laat mn gasten ook graag genieten van de mooie dingen. Tja, die airco’s op de andere kamers…. Moeten we nog even over nadenken….. is niet zo goed voor het milieu heb ik mij laten vertellen…. Maar we zullen ons erin gaan verdiepen.
    Groetjes Bianca

    Een heerlijk plek om tot rust te komen. Overal op het terrein zijn plekken waar je in de zon of in de schaduw kan zitten. Het nieuwe zonneterras was onze favoriet. Door het vele speelgoed, het zwembad en de trampolines hebben de kinderen zich geen moment verveeld. Tevens het snelle en stabiele internet een fijne bijkomstigheid. Het prachtige huis waar je je tijdens de vakantie fransoos waant bied alles wat je kan wensen. Arie en Bianca zijn goed te bereiken, en reageren snel. Ik kan iedereen hier een vakantie aanbevelen!

We rely on trust and on people who treat things properly (games; playstation etc).

The swimming pool is heated (max 28 degrees). No diving is allowed in the pool! And no hard objects may be taken into the pool (because of the sail in the pool).
