Expected on Saturday morning at Ebreuil, we made ​​a stop in this beautiful area, there is good to rest and the meal is a feast for the eyes and taste buds!
Within a property of 40 acres of gardens, woods, and meadows, the Château d'Ygrande offers a unique view of the Bourbonnais. Perched on a hill, it offers a fantastic view of the 40-acre area of woods and meadows, pond and woods ....

You will enjoy the romance of a beautiful XIX century house completely renovated and furnished with refinement. Castle Ygrande offers guests looking for a thrill an exceptional environment in an area where the campaign is combined with "authenticity, gastronomy, relaxation and culture."

Gourmet dining, you will discover the terroir. Decorated with Provencal flavors and prepared with vegetables and fruit garden and farm products, it is served in a special dining areas.

From the terrace facing south, one discovers the extent of the area. The 40 acres are held in the castle, offering a unique view of the Bourbonnais.
A wide median strip of colorful flower bed terrace extends to better accommodate our guests the balmy evenings of summer for a drink or a meal. When the weather is warm, it feels good to doze in the shade of ancient trees.
His stud, its pool and park inspire rest and relaxation!

Dear Odile,

I loved your lower PoV closer to earth and slightly up tilted. And angular luminosity on the building is fabulous. Fine details in bright day. A beautiful snapshot, well done. Thanks for sharing.

Kind Regards,
