Surrounding Area & Lesiure - Gite-Holiday House Lurcy Levis
La Platriere Retreat is in a hamlet of around 6 houses (La Platriere) and is situated just off the D64 halfway between the small town of Lurcy-Levis and the village of Valigny.
It is in the Allier departement in the region of Auvergne, and close to the borders of Cher in Centre and the Nievre in Burgundy (Bourgogne), so benefits from the characteristics of 3 regions.
La Platriere is close to (about 5 kms) from the Forest of Troncais, renowned to be the largest oak plantation in France. Many of its oak trees are 400+ years old. There are lots of walks and bridlepaths. The forest is home to many large and small lakes, some of which have sandy beaches for swimming, and bathing.
There are several base de loisoirs with sailing, pedalo hire, windsurfing, canoeing and kayaking.
Locally in the forest there are fishing, horseriding, and hunting.
We are also close to the river Allier where there is canoeing, and guided expedititions. Aprement-sur-Allier, one of the most beautiful villages in France is a 20 minute drive away, situated on the river Allier, an old medieval port, with a chateaux, floral park and 12th century church. Five minutes drive from there is the Bec d'Allier where the Allier joins the river Loire.
All around the area, in fact every 5 kms there are chateaux, some of which are open to the public. The area is Bourbonnais, and famous for the Bourbon dukes and birth place of several kings of France. There are also fortified castles at Bourbon L'Archambault (25 mins drive away) and Herrison. Also at Bourbon there are thermal Spa baths open to the public, a great place to just relax and be pampered. There is also a Casino at Bourbon.
Arrival times are from 4pm on commencement of holiday, departure by 10 am on day of leaving. During the summer months changeover day is strictly Saturdays.
