I really enjoyed my stay in this apartment. Despite being on a busy road, it was noticeably quiet, which as a light sleeper, was a huge relief. There’s a bus stop 1 minute away for easy access to Place de Jaude and beyond (or a 15-20 minute walk). Going the other way, from the opposite bus stop, it’s a 20 minute ride to the Puy de Dome. So, a great base from which to investigate the area without a car.
Conveniently, there’s a Spar supermarket about 10 minute’s walk away and other supermarkets towards Place de Jaude (Monoprix and others).
The kitchen is well equipped if you opt for home cooking.
The host is helpful and quick to respond to queries. I would happily return to this property.
The gîte is fully equipped with lovely homely touches, really clean and comfortable and deceptively spacious. Gilles & Valerie are very helpful and there are plenty of guidebooks and leaflets in the gîte to borrow for the local area. Walks, cycle tracks, historic towns and of course the range of extinct volcanoes to explore. Rochefort Montagne, Mont-Doré and La Bourboule for food and light shopping; Clermont Ferrand for modern shopping and more historic buildings including a cathedral built from local volcanic stone. Great location in the countryside with opportunities to watch buzzards, red kites and eagles soaring overhead (they're very camera-shy!). Overall a fantastic tranquil location and temporary home.
