The facilities are most adaquate, with two bedrooms and bathroom upstairs, and open kitchen/living room/dining room on the ground floor. Furnishings are simple. A pleasant terrace with picnic table is found just outside the front door. For those of us who have not experienced old-fashioned rural France, this location is a wonderful start. Five minutes' drive, or a half-hour walk get one to the town with some services: restaurants, groceries, bakery, petrol, chemist, clinic. And the river runs through it! And old stone bridges span it! The rental's location in the small village begs an internet search: "Balaguier sur Rance". No street names. We were met and welcomed by the owner, our host, who invited us in to the "Chateau", immediately next door. I recommend a visit there, if at all possible. The sensation of previous centuries' living leaves lovely memories. Our host was most generous with his time, gave us welcome insights regarding the region, and recommendations of places to visit. We were interested in old villages, and the region, which had gained freeway access only 10 years back, has many such tiny, quaint towns. Our two weeks was insufficient for us to visit all the places we wanted. Yes, I would like to return, and most definitely would recommend this home to our friends.
