L’Oustal Is even more beautiful in real life than it is in the photos. It is very close to the train station. Once inside the lovely hotel, the proprietors are warm, kind, present when you need someone, yet not intrusive. The delicious breakfast was served in the gorgeous dining room with a warm fire. It is a central location: One could explore the countryside by car or Bourges by foot. There was a salon available to guests for coffee and tea, cookies and candies, and books of the local area. I had tea here each evening, and one of the mornings when I had to wait, I was able to stay in the salon with my book. The bed linens were very soft; every aspect of the hotel was extremely clean. I plan to return here once again. L’Oustal will not disappoint!
