About this listing
Within walking distance of Cathedral,other places of interest, bars, restaurants etc
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 (website hidden) is compact, so probably not the place to practice your morning run.
The second floor self contained attic room can sleep five people when it will cover much of the floor area but, during the music festivals ... it rather depends how well you know each other!
Minimum stay two nights if you need more than two beds (one double, one single,ie three people)
Ten minutes drive from the mid France A 71 North/South autoroute and 220 kilometres ( some 137 miles ) South of Paris.
There is a direct train service from Paris (Austerlitz) to Bourges that takes around two hours.
If you are coming by car there is unloading in front of the house and free parking a couple of minutes round the corner.
An ideal journey break if you are travelling from Northern Europe to the Mediterranean or Spain , or just for the pleasure of a visit to this attractive town.
No TV, but free wifi connection.
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.
On behalf of the Mairie we have to charge guests the tourist tax of 82 centimes per adult per night
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!
Interaction with Guests
The calendar is not always correct, so if it seems the dates you want are already booked - contact us anyway.
Most places to visit are within easy walking distance.
A free public car park is a couple of minutes around the corner from us
Other Things to Note
We have a couple of cats 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)
None really. Try and check in around 6 pm/ 1800 hrs or let us know if you are going to be much earlier/later
No smoking inside the house .
The self contained studio/attic room probably not suitable for someone with mobility problems ( 33 steps to second floor, bunk type beds)
