Between the Berry and the Limousin, La Bonne Auberge provides access to the superb towns of the Berry. Gargilesse is listed as one of the most beautiful villages of France and makes for a wonderful first stop. This little artists' village in the Creuse Valley charms visitors with is sloping roofs and romantic château. It you want to be transported to another time and place, visit Aubigny-sur-Nère, the city of the Stuarts. This charming village belonged to Scotland for over four centuries, and continues to celebrate the "auld alliance": the Stuart castle, half-timbered houses, local whisky... No romantic getaway is complete without a visit to Saint Valentin, or the Venice of the Berry: Argenton-sur-Creuse. Apremont-sur-Allier and Saint-Benoît-du-Sault are also not to be missed.
