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.

Fantastic Apartment and friendly welcome to a beautiful town

5 of 5
We had a fantastic time in Vichy for the Ironman. Everything was was amazing. The town is beautiful with so many things to do and see and it's kept most of its historic charm. The apartment was a great base to explorensure from. We were welcomed on arrival, shown round snd given the keys. It was just what we needed for 2 adults and our little boy. It was clean, practical, tidy, again had French charm that we loved, had all the appliances required and even had a back yard where we could take done relaxing time out and have done food and drinks. It's a shame we only stayed for 5 days but we are planning on coming back in 2019 for the Ironman once more and will look to make more of a holiday of it.

Perfect

5 of 5
We stayed here whilst competing at Ironman Vichy. Great location about 30 minutes from Vichy. The cottage is cosy and comfortable with good facilities and a lovely terrace. The owners live next door and couldn't have been more helpful with recommendations, directions and local knowledge. I'd have no hesitation in recommending this property.
