|Gite Etoile Bleue||Self Catering||Flexible||1||2||1||Sofabed, but access to bathroom is through bedroom|
Gite Etoile Bleue was renovated in 2012. A detached stone-built cottage situated near the owner's house. Whilst the original oak beams and bread oven have been left exposed, the quality accommodation is modern and spacious.
Set in the beautiful rolling countryside of the Creuse, it offers a peaceful environment for those who want to get away from it all. The hamlet of Marmouret has only 6 houses (including the gite) and our property is at the end of a no through lane. The open view with big, ever changing sky will surely be a source of inspiration to any artist - writer, painter, sculptor, needleworker etc.

This was our second visit to the gite, because we loved it so much last year, and this year was just as great!
It's a beautiful, well appointed gite in a gorgeous rural setting. The views are amazing, and it's perfect for star gazing on a clear night.
Fantastic little Gite in a great location. The Gite is well equipped & nicely laid out with stunning views across open countryside. Loads to do & see nearby with some very nice restaurants. The owners, Elaine & Martin are very welcoming & left us a very tasty breakfast basket. We would recommend this Gite to any family & friends, we'll also be going back ourselves!
Thank you for your positive comments. It was great to meet you & we look forward to welcoming you back
Superb location, very peaceful with fantastic views from the garden. The gites is spacious, well equipped, comfortable and incredibly quiet. Comprehensive welcome pack was excellent. Bathroom had a superb shower head and very upmarket fittings together with fluffy white towels. Bedroom was spacious and light together with crisp bed linen. It was unfortunate that there had been problems with the hot tub and the owners had been unable to obtain replacement parts during our stay. Supermarket quite close together with an auberge that served delicious food at very reasonable prices. Would recommend for anyone wanting an away from it all location. Sky service on TV was an added bonus.
We have just spent a very restful break at this very well equipped and appointed gite. Very rural and a car is required which is exactly as described. Owners living next door extremely friendly and full of local knowledge. Would recommend etolie bleue to any couple that wanted a relaxed break with no other agenda than visiting local villages, walk, rest, eat, star gaze and sleep. The spa bath tub outside was a delight for a plunge to cool off after a warm day. Thank you to Elaine and Martin.
Thank you so much for your kind words. We are so pleased that we were able to provide the restful break you wanted. We look forward to welcoming you back whenever you feel the need to recharge your batteries.
