Gîte du Capitaine: why this name?
Former captain of the Merchant Navy in Le Havre (Remorqueurs Les Abeilles), I fell in love with the Nièvre, and more particularly with La Collancelle and its inhabitants.
I found there the peace and happiness of living in the old days, quiet and stress-free. I hope that you share my enthusiasm for this region.
The accommodation is located in La Collancelle, a place called Sauvin, 300m from the church
It is a renovated, insulated, wood-covered house, which gives it a nice cachet.
A very large wooden terrace of 40 m² sheltered facing south with garden furniture 12 places plancha grill 4 burners etc...
No vis-à-vis, view over the countryside, 7000m² private, secure gate at the entrance to the property.
The equipment conforms to the 3 star classification
The house has two fireplaces and if necessary, electric radiators, a French window opens onto the terrace.
The accommodation is accessible to disabled people with a stair lift for the bedrooms on the upper level.
Nearby,(1 km) that happiness: the canal du Nivernais with the 16 locks of La Collancelle, the 4 ponds of Baye, Vaux, la Perchette and the pond Gouffier.

Don't miss to rent a boat at Aquafluvial (by the hour, half-day, full day or more). You will be welcomed by Martine and Michel they are great.
