In Magnette, you find this beautiful train station, 19th century style with 21st century comfort. There is a nice garden with swimming pool, wooden terrace surrounding the pool, two terraces for 8 persons and an outside bbq.

Inside, you find authentical elements that bring you back to the time when was a train station in usage. There is a lovely new fire place and nice couches. Further, you find a bathroom downstairs as well as upstairs. To top if off there is a pinball machine in the living room (throw-in 2 euro).

On arrival, you receive an information guide wherein you will find practical information about the house and the surroundings, like you could read hereunder.

We wish you a great stay!

Tips in the local area:

  • There is also fresh bread at the Carrefour supermarket in Vallon-en-Sully. At our corner turn left, then (after 2 minutes) turn at the first crossroads with traffic lights turn left and then you have to take 10
    minutes until you enter Vallon-en-Sully. At your right you will immediately find a rather large Carrefour, wherever you are cheap fuel.
  • In the Auberge on the corner you can drink a glass of wine or draft beer and also eat at the Dutch owners for an affordable price.
  • Nearby we have a rather fancy restaurant called Restaurant La Table de Reugny. You turn left at the end of the street, then at the first crossroads at the traffic lights to the right and you will immediately find this
    exclusive restaurant. Book in advance: +33 4 70 06 70 06.
  • You can have a nice lunch and extensive dinner at Restaurant Le Tire Bouchon, a small village restaurant in Vallon-en-Sully (12 mins to ride). Reservations can be made via telephone number +33 4 70 06 58 62.
  • Opposite the small market square in Vallon-en-Sully you will find a French pub Le Damier with the sympathetic Frisian owner Anja.
  • Montluçon is a beautiful medieval castle town and is located approx. 20 minutes drive. The castle is reached by a high staircase and if you at the top you have a magnificent view of the wide surroundings.
    Near the castle is a cozy street with cafes and restaurants and on Saturday morning there is a nice market; highly recommended! Also the budget supermarkets Aldi and Lidl can be found in Montlucon.
  • By train you can go from our own station twice a day Montlucon travel. You can also quickly get to Vallon-en-Sully by rail. Consult the times in the waiting booth on the platform. There is also on the
    corner at the Auberge a bus stop.
  • Next to the Auberge is the Musée Canal du Berry in which it is local past comes to life. You can also rent electric boats for that on the channel.
  • Beautiful bike rides have been plotted along the Canal du Berry. In Vallon-en-Sully, a bicycle rental service is available at Aux Baboteurs (Chem. Du Canal 03190, Vallon-en-Sully, +33 6 01 82 31 80).
  • Hérison is one of the many picturesque villages nearby and certainly one worth a visit. It is located in a valley between a river, woods and an old ruin of a medieval castle.
  • Bourges is approx. 1 hour away and has a beautiful cathedral and a romantic historic center.
  • La Bourboule, a pretty town with unsurpassed thermal baths.
  • Half an hour away you will find the Forêt de Tronçais (11,000 ha). This is the largest oak forest in Europe, where you can enjoy walking and mountain biking. In this Forêt de Tronçais you will find beautiful lakes with sandy beaches where you can swim and fish.
  • The historic city of Vichy with its illustrious history and special architecture is a 2-hour drive away.
  • Enjoy the rolling French countryside and you will automatically come across beautiful ones
    views, lovely villages, beautiful lakes, fresh fens, bustling brocantes and what not. In addition, the house hopefully offers enough rest and entertainment for a successful holiday.

Practical issues:

  • The garbage truck does not come to the station. Once every two weeks on Sunday evening you must therefore yourself at the beginning of the street (on the corner of the Auberge van Nelleke & Steven) the waste containers outside and on the left behind the blue one bike rack of the Auberge, so out of sight of the terrace. The exact dates are still being communicated. Steven, the neighbor of the Auberge then puts them on the road. be on Monday morning emptied them and you can then collect the bins yourself.
  • There are various items in the open shed, including a petanque set of balls, a beach ball set and a lounger for the water.
  • The throw-in of the pinball machine is 2 euros per game. The pinball machine is fragile, so please don't put anything on the glass plate and not the cabinet to move.
  • Cleaning equipment can be found in the first part of the barn, on the side of the road (in the former ladies' toilet).
    *Other cleaning supplies can be found under the sink in the kitchen.The vacuum cleaner is upstairs in the bathroom.
  • Fresh bread and other delicacies can be obtained from the bakery of Estivareilles (6 km) or Vallon-en-Sully (9.5 km) and many a bakery (and supermarket). Montlucon has delicious patisserie.

Have fun at La Gare de Magnette!
