Private pool on the Dronne River

Tales from the Riverbank part 5

Pure France launched Bonnes Vacances just last year but already it has proved incredibly popular. Guests have been enjoying its tranquil, riverside location as well as its stunning design and interior decoration.

Visitors have also been telling us how much they've enjoyed being part of the Bonnes village community. As well as the historic water mill which hosts environmental trails and exhibitions, over the past year villagers have redeveloped the old school into a thriving cultural centre. Art exhibitions are staged there throughout the year, along with classical musical concerts and other community events supported by the local baker, pizzeria and bar/restaurant. There is also a programme of talks (in English and French) on a variety of subjects including the Compostela pilgrimage trail which runs through the village.

The famous nearby village of Auberterre (one of Les Plus Beau Villages du France) also boasts a plethora of art galleries, sculpture studios and exhibitions as well as a choice of restaurants, cafes and bars.
