Whatever time of year you decide to visit, you will never get bored whilst staying in an Auvergne holiday cottage, and the vast majority of visitors return to self catering Auvergne holiday homes year after year. Tourism in Auvergne thrives due to a stunning combination of beautiful scenery, fine monuments and fantastic sport.

Clean, neat with everything you'll need. Very quiet inside and out. Interesting area.

4 of 5
Christine was waiting for me and told me all I needed to know, and then, there I am in my own little apartment - the shutters wide open, looking over roofs and streets. A few yards away is the entrance to Le Rocher with St Michael's church atop. A cafe, restaurant and a tabac only a stroll away. The Cathedral slightly further with coffee and croissants in the sun at the foot of the steps! Brilliant! I met Christine again to say thank you and au revoir. I would highly recommend Le Petit Seguret.

Lots of character and wonderful views

5 of 5
Thanks to the proprietors and the agents for a most enjoyable week in L'Escalette. We particularly enjoyed its fascinating location in Montaigut-Le-Blanc, with its magnificent views over hills and distant mountains and its many historical connections. The small size of the house gave it a cosy feel and, even if the veranda shown in the picture is a little challenging to get to (e.g. carrying a tray of food down a flight of irregular steps!), we enjoyed its exclusivity in the cool of the evening. We were warmly welcomed by the agents in Champeix (just 2-3 km down the road), and it was good to meet the very nice proprietors towards the end of the week. We did find the lock on the OUTSIDE of the bathroom door a little bizarre - none on the inside - but otherwise the cottage was well equipped. Thanks again!
