Additional Location Information

La Platriere is situated in the Allier department in the region of Auvergne. It is close to the borders of Cher (Centre) and Nievre (Bourgougne). The cottage is just off the D64, 4 kilometres from the small town of Lurcy Levis and 5 kms from the village of Valigny.

Close to the Troncais Forest, La Platriere is ideal for walking. Also close by are several large lakes some of which have beaches for swimming and sunbathing. There are opportunities to go sailing, and hire boats, pedaloes, canoes and kayaks. The fishing in the area is excellent. Horseriding is nearby with possibility of trekking in the forest.

The area is called Bourbonnais, which means it is the land of the Bourbon dukes and kings of France. Medieval villages and towns are everywhere, the whole area being of great historic interest. With its history of being involved in the royal courts, there are no shortages of chateaux and castle fortresses, many of which are open to the public. Throughout the summer months you can visit medieval fairs and festivals, where you will experience times gone by, medieval music, dance and entertainment, food and other produce.

The area is also well-known for its folklore music. Every year at Lurcy-Levis there is an international folklore festival, where participants from several countries as well as other regions in France gather and perform their music and dance. All in traditional costume, this is an event (email: hidden)racts many people. Further afield at Gannat is a larger folklore festival, which lasts for 10 days, again with at least 11 international groups of dancers and musicians, with opportunities for you to experience their culture and food, and buy their products.

The area produces excellent wine and cheeses. Within 12 kilometres of La Platriere you can visit a small vineyard which has its roots from the 12 century. With Sancerre and Pouilly sur Loire only an hours drive away, you can taste some of the best wines of France.
