What makes this house unique

The gite is located in the heart of the old village; there is no need to take your car to do the shopping. Every Monday, you can taste natural products from the region at the local market.

The gite at the ramparts is in an old construction, the living room is completely renovated to today's standards on the part of the house from the XIX century. The freestone staircase is from the XVI century, and the bedrooms are from the XVIII century. The house is decorated with antique family furniture. But all the beds are new! Double-glazing and double cladding on the walls help maintain the heat in during winter and provide coolness during summer.

Bathtub and shower in bathroom.

The view is magical and relaxing... On one side, you have Besse's main square, with a fountain and restaurant terraces...

On the other side, you have a view of the ramparts, the old Beffroi, gardens, and the south terrace with complete calm.

From the gite, you can hike to Pavin Lake, 1h30 min away by foot (5 min by car).

Skiing in winter, mountain biking in summer, fishing in spring, and mushroom picking in autumn...

From the gite, you can visit many cultural and natural sites with a car, by foot or bike...

Wonderful apartment and a welcoming host

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed 10 nights at this wonderful apartment. We loved everything about this place. The apartment was very spacious, well equipped, clean and well-maintained. The apartment is well designed, and I appreciated the blend of old and new. Pierre , the owner, was a wonderful host, very friendly, helpful and welcoming.
The location of the apartment is very convenient. Near the old city rampart, with a nice view from the bedroom`s section to one of the lovely medieval square of Besse. There is a parking in front of the apartment and a very good boulangerie-patisserie around the block.
This is a wonderful place with kind and generous host and we would love to return again.

Excellente location

  • 5 out of 5
Très belle location, vraiment spacieuse, très bien équipée et très bien aménagée, tout est neuf, bien pensé, élégant et confortable. Enfin une wifi annoncée et qui fonctionne vraiment (cela semble anecdotique, mais pas pour ceux qui ont besoin de travailler connectés pendant les vacances comme moi). Cette maison est située au coeur de Besse, la terrasse donne sur le beffroi et sur les toits de lauze, le petit jardin en contrebas est très agréable. Besse est un très beau village, animé et sympathique, doté de commerces qui rendent inutile l'usage d'une voiture (navettes, pas très nombreuses, pour le lac Pavin et Super-Besse). Les environs sont splendides pour les randonneurs en été. Ambiance sportive et familiale, pas snob. Les gens de la région très accueillants. Nous sommes repartis avec l'idée d'y revenir en hiver. Nous recommandons sans réserve cette location.

Haus mit Charme

  • 5 out of 5
Kann so ein graues, tristes Haus etwas besonderes sein? Oh ja, absolut! Hinter den Pforten präsentiert sich das Haus als ein echtes Juwel. Moderne Architektur und Design wurde in einer gelungen Mischung mit dem Mobiliar aus dem Familienbesitz des Vermieters kombiniert. Die Räume entsprechen den Fotos, wirken aber vor Ort noch viel schöner. Alles ist mit Liebe und Sorgfalt ausgewählt und sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet worden. Wir fühlten uns gleich vom ersten Moment sehr wohl. Vom Schlafzimmer hat man einen herrlichen Blick in die kleine Altstadt. Die modernen Fenster schließen gut, so dass wir keinerlei Lärm von den unten gelegenen Cafés hörten. Das Haus befindet sich direkt innerhalb der mittelalterlichen Stadtmauer (rempart). Perfekt ist der Privatparkplatz direkt vor dem Haus. Die kleinen Straße ist nur für die wenigen Anlieger. Auf der Terrasse vor dem Haus scheint von früh bis spät die Sonne, was wir bei den Mahlzeiten sehr genossen haben. Kein Autolärm nur Vogelgezwitscher. Die Abwicklung der Buchung war total unkompliziert. Wir buchten nur 2 Tage vor unserer Ankunft, noch während unserer Reise durch Frankreich. Der sehr freundliche Vermieter hatte damit keinerlei Probleme. Er war sehr zuvor kommend und großzügig, außerdem spricht er auch englisch und deutsch.

Die Auvergne ist absolut grün und blumig und erinnert an eine Mischung aus Allgäu, Eifel und der Schweiz – einfach wunderschön. Es gibt dort sehr viel zu entdecken, Info-Material liegt aus. Die vielen Wanderwege sind gut beschildert. Highlight unserer Auvergnetour war die Zahnradbahn, mit der man auf den Puy de Dôme (1.465 m) fahren kann und von dort einen grandiosen Ausblick hat. Ebenso die Gondelfahrt vom nahe gelegen Skiort Super Besse mit Wanderung zum Massif du Sancy (1.886 m). Wichtig zu wissen ist, dass die Bezeichnung Besse en Chandesse die alte Bezeichnung für Besse et Saint Anastaise ist.
Wir hatten schon viele sehr gute FeWo – Wohnungen und dachten es gäbe keine Steigerungen mehr. Irrtum! Obwohl unsere eigenen Chancen für eine nächste erfolgreiche Buchung dadurch sinken, können wir das Haus uneingeschränkt empfehlen. Nous reviendrons, merci beaucoup!
