Overview

Overview

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday barn in Ambert area - The Walnut Mill

Large 4 bedroomed gite (sleeps 10/12) with private heated pool

Dating from the 1850's, but completely renovated in 2006, this spacious accommodation offers a luxurious break away from it all, plus a taste of real France.

The barn has three double bedrooms (1 en-suite) and a large gallery, sleeping 4/5. In addition there are 2 bath/shower rooms and 4th toilet. For larger parties the gite has a double sofa- bed.

The main living space in the gite is the large open plan raised ground floor. This 9.5 meter square ( 31 feet by 31 feet) allows the large kitchen, generous dinning area and spacious seating zone to be fully integrated. The cook(s) are not banished from the life of the party!

The fully equipped kitchen comes with all the usual appliances including catering-sized pots and pans for larger groups.

The spacious living/dining area offers direct access to the pool and deck. We have satellite TV, and a home cinema system, a newly installed Wi Fi booster that gives great coverage in the gite and on the deck, a large selection of books, jigsaw puzzles and games. The lower ground floor games room has a full size table-tennis table, a half-size snooker table and table football. New for 2015 we are offering The Tree House for those who would like to sleep in the Great Outdoors. We would ask that guests wishing to do so, bring a sleeping bag. The Tree House has an old brass double bed or soft carpet for outdoor types! It also has electricity. Back in the gite,

we also have high chairs and cots for very young children.

The heated pool (8 m x 4 m), large wooden deck with gas BBQ and dining table, large grassy garden, beautiful surroundings and local amenities offer something for everyone. See the pool by following the link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ijgwHNbtubg

The G.P.S. coordinates for the gite are 45*25'35.72'N, 3*44'59.57' E [ I am using the * sign to indicate degrees].

Winter bookings of the gite [ Dec. Jan. and Feb.,March and April ] have a winter fuel supplement of 150 euros/ sterling equivalent per week. However, should the gite not require extra heating above the norm, then the fuel supplement will be fully refunded.

The pool is open from mid May until the end of September.

For groups larger than 10 persons a supplement of 10% per person per week is chargeable.

We now can accept Cheques Vacances.

The gite is located in the heart of the Parc Naturel Regional Du Livradois Forez close to the small market town of Arlanc.There are good road links to the French Autoroute System. Le Puy-en-Velay and la ChaiseDieu are a few kilometres drive south whilst Thiers, Clermont Ferrand and Vichy are close by to the north. The town of Ambert is just 16 km away. This region is very unspoilt and retains its distinct French character. Traffic is light, traffic jams something you leave behind! Local markets are very traditional where people come to enjoy the local atmosphere as well as to sample the regional specialities. The International Music Festival at la Chaise Dieu is rightly famous through out Europe while the Country and Western Festival in near by Craponne - sur - Arzon makes for a very interesting weekend! For those interested in Romanesque architecture, the region has many wonderful examples.

Golf: Prospective guests would need to research local golf courses using the internet.

Ski: During the winter months cross country skiing is available locally.
