Peace and Quiet for a relaxing stopover en route south
Although I was late arriving Corrie served up a 3 course delicious French supper. The tasteist homemade soup, with secret ingredients, homemade chicory tart with local organic veal and blue veined cheese and I still managed the bitter cherry tart with formage frais and half carafe of local red wine! A delicious introduction to French cooking. I ate alone but the atmosphere in the house was very relaxing after a long drive, the rooms full of art and photos from their travels and they made me feel very welcome. They had lit the fire in the library - a place for guests to unwind, with sofa and chairs. After a great nights sleep and good shower I was offered a superb continental breakfast - homemade muesli, croissants, range of breads, a truely fresh boiled egg, cheese, variety of tasty jams and jug full of coffee. Stop here on your way south, arrive early, (only one hour from Chateauroux A20, then onwards cross country to A71 and Clermont Ferrand) enjoy the location, stay longer, explore the region. They are warm and generous dutch hosts who speak good French and English. The only thing I would recommend is not to arrive too late to really enjoy Vei Lou Queri.
