In this quiet and peaceful part of North Auvergne, the Domaine du Bourg is a beautiful and tranquil setting, ideal for relaxing or enjoying time with the family. This beautiful gypsy caravan is equipped with a big outdoor living space with BBQ, an awning with a dining table and deck chairs. Inside there is a bedroom with a double bed and a living / dining area with a sofa bed and open-plan kitchen. The caravan is fully equipped including a stove, kettle and fridge/freezer.Bed linen is not provided. Please add this is an additional extra or please bring your own.
NB: The capacity of the caravan is for a maximum of 3 people, but we allow you to book for up to 2 extra children if you bring your own tent (and bedding) to pitch next to the caravan. If you do not plan to bring an extra tent, please limit your booking to 3 people.
The Domaine offers plenty to do for the little ones or big ones alike from a Volley-Ball pitch, to a petanque area, swimming pool, trampoline and sandpit and swings. A communal BBQ area with picnic tables, together with a bakery 50m down the road, and a butchers and further shops and cafe down the road will allow you to enjoy local produce without venturing too far afield.
Local activities include kayaking on the Loire and idyllic bike rides, not to forget the beautiful and historic towns which are a must-see in this area.

Features & Facilities

A brand new half-timbered building houses free warm showers toilets, washbasins and dish-washing facilities. Toilet paper is supplied so you can leave your rolls at home. There is also a disabled room and baby facilities. Elsewhere there's a small pool and a covered seating area (where meals are served), which is handy as a day area.

Activities

This is a fairly quiet site, so the best thing to do is capitalise on that quietness and hire a bike or kayak. Bikes can be rented from the site at €10 per day and kayaks are available at €14 per half day and €23 per full day, including transport to and from the river. It is one of the most beautiful sections of the Loire, well-known as 'France's last wild river' and an excellent place to explore by whatever means you chose. Along with the EuroVélo6 route you can follow the 'Loire by Bike', 'Burgundy by Bike' or 'Grand Randonnée nr 3'. Peter and Trudi know them well and are more than happy to give advice on where to go.

Food & Drink

There's a small Proxi convenience store, a pâtisserie, a butcher, and les Vanneau, a little restaurant-café with a terrace, in the village.

Getting There

From Nevers take the D13 and D116 to Decize. Head out of town on the D978a and turn left onto the D116 for Ganny-sur-Loire. Once in the village cross the river and you'll see a triangular green with a road veering off to the left. Follow that road for 100m and the site is on the right. The closest you can get to the site is 12–16km away, at one of several nearby railway stations at Fours. Cercy-la-Tour or Decize.
