It was in a lovely location, near enough to and far away enough from everything you could hope for. Spotlessly clean, well equipped and Patricia made sure we had everything we needed. Wish we were still there!

The location and views are brilliant, and perfect if you want to get away from it all. The area in general was quite busy (mid August) when we went to the local town and the various activities, but the house location was super peaceful and isolated. It has views across the volcanic landscape that we spent many a happy evening soaking up along with wine and local produce. The favourite location for the kids (we have 11yr old twins) was Super Besse, where there was lots to do from mountain biking, to lake action and Europe's longest zip wire.
