Les Eaux de la
We are Cheryl and Phil Waters, and along with Mac, our Border Collie
we welcome you to Les Eaux de la Petite Fontaine , situated in the quiet little hamlet of Bousseresse .
We are just under 2kms from the medieval town of La Souterraine & on the GR route and Santiago Di Compostello Pilgrim Route.
In La Souterraine you will find Supermarkets, Banks, plus a lovely selection of
local shops and restaurants.
Our home sits in just over 3 acres of land where early in the mornings and late evenings you may see the deer grazing in the field or get to meet our two "lodging" cats, Hamish & Morag, who have made their home in our barn.
We offer you 3 comfortable rooms each with its own charm. All our rooms come with Dolce Gusto tea/Coffee making machines, soaps and showergel, hairdryer, towels, cotton buds, biscuits and water.
Breakfast is served, weather permiting, in the summer months under the gazebo in the garden. In winter we serve in the dining room with our log burner.
Please feel free to stroll around our garden. Pull up a chair by the fire pit or under the shade of our Rhus tree. For the sun lovers grab a lounger and enjoy the sounds of nature. Early mornings and evenings look out for the deer in the garden.
Free wifi is available in all rooms and around our house.
PLEASE NOTE WE DO NOT ACCEPT PETS

Simply the best! We have stayed at many B&Bs on our adventures and this is by far the best we have found. You will not find better hospitality and the owners go far beyond what you usually find. A very warm welcome awaits you as you are invited into their gorgeous house, with the most comfortable of beds and very clean and spacious ensuite rooms. We purposely go out of our way to stay here, making sure our route through France encompasses a night or 3 here. The location, the house, the local attractions, and most importantly the owners make this a very special place.
Arrive, be welcomed, eat, shower, sleep....Zzzzzz....perfect!!! Love it!!!
