Whilst the surroundings don't offer too much variety and its badly connected, the tiny town (2k pop) seems fairly dynamic with unusual attractions — Street Art City (22,000m2 of art by new artists every year!), a velodrome, a (tiny) F1/F3 racetrack and also a lake/leisure area with volley-ball and probably suitable for SUP if we get boards, oh and there's a tennis club. The space itself is plenty big enough to be attractive year round, it benefits from natural surroundings being the last building on the stream. The climate is pretty similar to all the Northern Italy candidates, except a few degrees less hot in  🏖. The opportunity to have an incredible space where many of us can congregate and still have lots of personal space may outweigh the negatives.

Environment fairly boring northly agricultural terrain; theree's a few paths on the doorstep and forests for biking and horse riding, plus river canoeing all 10mins

Services whilst not connected it has all services including a covered market, local towns Nevers and Moulins are 35mins drive

Access station 20min (car, 1h bike) 2h30 paris 1h Nevers; Clermont 1h45; driving bourges/mont lucon 1h; clermont 1h30; bus Moulins twice daily (maybe res req by tel?)
