The space
Martine and John – an Anglo-French couple – welcome you to their intimate bed and breakfast establishment in the historic centre of Bourges , an ancient Cathedral town in the middle of France.
We have a two bedroom self contained suite on the first floor designed to take three people (190 cm x 140 cm bed sharing couple+one single)It is compact, so probably not the place to practice your morning run.
The second floor self contained attic room - which is very warm during hot weather -can sleep four people ( One 200 cm x 140 cm mezzanine double, two singles ) but, during the music festivals and by prior arrangement... it rather depends how well you know each other!
Minimum stay two nights for both .
Most of the attractions along with the bars, restaurants etc are within easy walking distance.
We are a organic /'green' household as much as is possible without being fundamentalist about it.
The per night price is 55 euros per bed - sharing couple ( 'Continental 'breakfast - ie bread, yogurt, orange juice etc (non cooked stuff ) included and 20 euros per extra guest/bed .
We have to collect ,on behalf of the Town Hall, a nightly tourist tax of 82 centimes per guest.

Guest access
We are a typical French bed and breakfast establishment. We provide bed/s and breakfast/s. The kitchen cannot be available to guests - most of the time it is probably being used to make your jam!

Other things to note
We have a cat so this is probably not the place for someone with an over active dog - though we have had hamsters to stay ( caged, I am pleased to say - for the hamsters)
During chats with guests their experiences with some other Airbnb establishments has sometimes been startling.
Please let us reiterate that at Le Samson …
Guests do not have to share shower room facilities with another room.
We do not charge extra for cleaning. We consider that ridiculous and just an excuse for gouging extra money from the client.
We are closed until the CV 19 crisis is convincingly resolved.

Location

Bourges, Centre-Val de Loire, France

In a quiet neighbourhood but within easy walking distance of most of the sites and entertainments, restaurants, bars etc. Bourges can be a bit quiet on Sundays and Mondays, especially during the non high season periods- that is to say , the choise of restaurants might be limited
