Make a holiday rental villa or property in Allier, France your home away from home

Allier is a beautiful rural department of the Auvergne region of France. Located in the Massif Central, Allier is best known for its magnificent landscape of mountains, ancient forests and dramatic plunging gorges. Allier is the most beautiful area of Auvergne, France’s ‘green lung’, and is the pinnacle of outdoor activity holidays in France. The only things which break up the greenery are the stately chateaux, castles and fortresses which stand proudly on various hill-tops throughout Allier, France.

                                                              Wonderful Property

                                                              We were absolutely astounded at the creativity which had been put into the property. It had so much space and everything you could want on a holiday. There were lots of rooms all clean and ready for our use, as were the two bathrooms which were a pleasure to use. Everything indoors was spectacular, the huge fire in the sitting room, the massive kitchen, the games room and the laundry. Nothing had been forgotten. We spent many happy hours in the swimming pool or on the patio having a BBQ and gazing at the wildlife and the stars after dark. The peace and tranquility was another bonus. We were very well looked after by our manager who kept the pool beautifully clean. No one wanted to leave as it was such a lovely setting and we felt happy and relaxed in such a terrific property.

                                                              Lovely Rural retreat with all amenities

                                                              This was our first visit to this part of France. The property is ideally situated for visiting Berry, the Auvergne, Burgundy as well as the local cities of Bourges, Nevers, Moulins and Clermont. L'Ocee was exactly as described with so many amenities, to suit both couples and families alike. The house is situated in a very private situation with large grounds surrounded by fields and only a stones throw from the Troncais forest. The pool was an excellent attraction in the unusually good September weather however the range of games and facilities in the lower level are enough to keep any family occupied. The property throughout was well maintained clean and comfortable, fully equipped and offered us both internet access and satellite TV. Anita was very welcoming and helpful when we arrived, providing everything we would need to know about the property and let us know about the many attractions in the area, where we could go and the best way of getting there. We liked Bourges, its wonderful Cathedral and welcoming city, The Puy de dome provided stunning views of the Auverge and surrounding countryside. Nevers was an interesting city and the nearby Troncais provided plenty of opportunity for quite walks alongside the many lakes and well situated picnic areas. Drevant has some fantastic roman remains but access was not available when we visited and the fencing around the sites is unattractive and prevented us from taking photos. There are many chateau and gardens to be visited and we would love to return again in the future. A really lovely holiday and would recommend! Paul & Val
