This is a lovely gite in a beautiful part of the Auvergne within walking distance of a very characterful old town with great shops and places to eat. The mountain walks just a few kilometres away are stunning! Views from Puy de Sancy and Roc de Cuzeau are completely breathtaking across the whole of the Massif Central! The back road from Besse to Mont Dore across the pass via the Croix St Robert is not to be missed! Our hosts were on site and so helpful and friendly, even providing us with bedding when we turned up without! We will be back!
This was a perfect place to spend a Christmas away from it all. The cottage is spacious but cosy and has a big wood burner for nights in by a fire - it felt like home very quickly! The surrounding countryside is really beautiful and there are lots of lovely walks. It's a short car ride to the nearest village with amenities so you probably need a car. There is the Auberge de Moneaux restaurant just a short walk down the road however. Further afield there are spa/ski towns to explore and Clermont Ferrand is only about 50 minutes by car. No tv or wifi at the cottage but didn't miss either one bit! If you are looking for peace, clear air and being in nature this is a wonderful place to come. The owners, Evelyne and Michel were very helpful and prompt in all correspondence as was Olivier who met us and came to lock up. We would love to return.
