The location is very peaceful and only a short drive from St Gervais d'Auvergne where we could find all we needed. The owners were kind and helpful and the cottage was clean and well equipped when we arrived. Beautiful countryside is all around with plenty of walks. We were able to enjoy some meals on the terrace and complete tranquility in the evening with a spectacular view of the night sky. Highly recommended. We will return.
