Chez Almara is a lovely old house which has been extended in the last ten years to provide excellent accommodation for six people in comfort.
Alison and Mark have provided everything you would need to make this a home from home. Their cheery welcome and love of the surroundings is quite infectious.
On the borders of the Grande Communale, a 92 hectare marshland which is home to a wide variety of birds and animals - including hares, lapwings, herons, egrets and of course the coypu, the house is an absolute paradise for anyone wishing to have a break from the rat race.
Set up your scope, camera or easel in the window of the lounge or walk about 75 yards to the bird hide and snap away.
A short walk in the opposite direction leads to yet more canalside grass verges and more opportunities for recording the views in whatever format.
Anyone not wanting the exercise is well catered for in the large garden which has been fully equipped with sun-loungers and barbeque. Even the fisherman in the family can buy a licence locally and park themselves right opposite. The canal is home to bar, carp, and bass.
