Prepare your determined persona and your exploring self, for there's a splendid way to see the spectacular Loire Valley from spectacular Gites Insolites de Sologne in the (spectacular) Cher department.
A stay here will have your intrepid self right next door to a hot air ballooning centre, so get ready for heady rides over this lovely land, drifting lazily above vineyards, medieval monuments, forests, rivers and teeny tiny villages. Absolutely non? Those insisting on staying firmly at ground level merci beaucoup can tackle canoeing, kayaking, fishing, golfing, horse riding and mountain biking nearby, as well as pedals around the neighbouring wine regions, gentle ambles around the neighbouring forest, or wildlife and boat trips around the wetlands of the Sologne.
Gites Insolites de Sologne is about 10 minutes' drive from its local town of Brinon-sur-Sauldre. It has stunning accommodation (see pics) in a woodland setting and wildlife haven of over 60 hectares – with hundreds of metres' worth of space guaranteed between each unit. Over six kilometres of private forest trails are at your ambling disposal too, along with ponds for fishing if you're angling for yet more quiet time.
All units have their own kitchen areas, but if you rightly think that accommodation of this standard should equal as luxury a break as poss, say a merry goodbye to any thoughts of cooking and have your meals at the site restaurant.
The site is eco friendly and has renewable energy and recycling.
