The house

  • Quiet, rural area with some agricultural activity

Cosy holiday home Tranzault is located in the heart of France in Le Berry, department Indre (named after the river that flows through it) in the triangle of the towns of Châteauroux, La Châtre and Argenton.
In this comfortable holiday home you will find a living room / dining room with fireplace and a sofa bed, television and radio / CD / MP3 player.
The spacious open kitchen has a ceramic hob, fridge with freezer, oven and microwave.
Upstairs is a WC, a bright bedroom with two single beds with a bathroom with shower and wash basin and a bedroom with a double bed and a built-in large wardrobe.
Behind the house adjacent to the kitchen is a covered terrace with seating area where you can enjoy the morning sun but also sit outside if it is rainy. The garden has a large lawn with a ruin, there is also a vegetable garden and behind it beautiful white French cows graze.
In front of the house is a round stone table under a tree, where you can have a nice dinner in the evening, and a park-like garden.
In this garden there is a saltwater swimming pool which is lit in the evening . We have opted for salt water instead of chlorine because it is better for the skin and the environment.
The house is situated in a pleasant region with rolling landscapes, meadows, forests with lakes and picturesque villages where you can still enjoy small-scale antique and flea markets undiscovered by mass tourism.
Ideal for tranquility, walkers, cyclists, but also inspiring for artists, painters and culture lovers.

    Samen met onze hond hebben wij twee fijne weken gehad in de Franse gite van Liesbeth. Ondanks het weer konden we goed buiten zitten op het terras onder de druifjes. Het huis is koel binnen en van alle gemakken voorzien. Prettige ruimtes en een fijne slaapkamer. De omgeving is erg leuk en ouderwets Frans. Elke dag kregen we leuke tips om te gaan doen, zoals mooie concerten in de omgeving, kunstenaarsdorpjes (zoals Gargilesse), het landgoed van schrijfster George Sand ook zeer de moeite waard, restaurantjes voor diners tijdens de lunch wat hier de gewoonte is. Na het eten kun je een mooie stille avondwandeling maken vanuit huis door de weilanden! Je komt er niemand tegen.
    Dankjewel Liesbeth voor je gastvrijheid en Flo voor het geven van de vele lieve kopjes , het wijzen van de weg en het spelen met Nitsa. Oh, er is geen zwembad meer, maar dat mag de pret niet bedreven.

    Eind augustus ben ik met een vriendin nog een keer naar Tranzault terug geweest. Ik hou erg van de omgeving in de Indre. Er is veel te zien, zoals een mooi kasteel, een kunstenaarsdorpje, een grote mooie markt in Boussac enz. Tijdens wandelingen kom je hooguit koeien tegen. Veel uit eten geweest wat zeer betaalbaar is. Liesbeth was weer zeer hulpvaardig en leuk haar weer te ontmoeten. Wie weet kom ik nog weer een keer terug voor de heerlijke Franse wijn, het zwembad en natuurlijk Flo de hond.
