Susie & Bernard welcome you to their Bed & Breakfast in a former protestant orphanage in the centre of the charming country town of Mehun-sur-Yèvre, famous for its connections with Charles vii and Joan of Arc. It is considered one of the most beautiful detours in France. Our home will be the starting point to discover Mehun and its long history. Walk through the Duke of Berry Gardens to the ruins of the chateau belonging to Charles vii and then take a stroll through the cobbled streets of the town through the clock tower situated along the old city walls -all a stone's throw from La Petite Famille. We have one double bedroom Les Parents with en-suite and a suite composed of two double bedrooms, La chambre d'Isabelle and La chambre de Thomas with bathroom. The suite is ideal for a family or friends. We serve breakfast with a selection of homemade breads, pastries and cakes, in our dining room or on our patio if the weather permits. Our sitting room is open to our guests and a trolley is available with hot and cold drinks and home made biscuits. We hope our guests will also enjoy our English style garden. Car parking facilities for two cars. Mehun-sur-Yèvre is ideally situated close to Bourges, ancient Roman capital of France Avaricum and not far from the Sologne forest, ideal for walking, hunting and fishing, Sancerre, Menetou-Salon and Quincy, famous for their wines and an abundance of chateaus and other historical sites, enough to satisfy the most demanding history buff.

A break for one night
We had a very, very good stay in this house - a very warm and friendly welcome and I am sure, we return to this place for a longer stay to discover the surroundings of this area. English speaking helped us very much to feel comfortable. Susie and Bernard are very engaged to make people feel comfortable and relaxed.
Lovely stay so we went back for two additional nights
Susie and Bernard made our stay with them so enjoyable that we stayed with them again on our journey back. The home is recently renovated, has lovely decor and is very clean and comfortable. The location is central to the town and has secure off street parking. We enjoyed a quiet nights sleep each night. Susie provides a good breakfast and also a very good five course dinner on request. The location is a short walk from a park with a river and canal and also the ruins of a very old chateau.

This B&B epitomises the ideals of a well run, welcoming establishment
This B&B is well located in the centre of France and for us it was a perfect stopover for us on our way further south. Really impressed with the warmth of our hosts welcome, and the cleanliness and decor of our room. We stayed in the 'Parents' room. We had a 4 course dinner including wine and coffee beautifully presented with flowers on the table and cloth napkins. The breakfast was excellent with a variety of homemade breads and jams. The highlight was homemade scones and brioches and the apricot jam was sublime. Being English we welcomed the idea of a kitchette cleverly integrated in the hall where we could have tea or coffee or a drink at any time of the day or night. We were able to keep our picnic for the next day in the fridge. Excellent idea.
From Paris a 2-1/2 hours trip, take the A10 then the A71 towards Bourges, leave the motorway at exit 6 and follow signs to Mehun sur Yèvre. Once in Mehun, drive through the town center and take the direction to Marmagne.
