Delightful apartment in great location

4 of 5
Delightful apartment, very clean, quiet, convenient and well equipped, with wonderful views and in an attractive building. Right on the Aiguilhe village square - we were there for the annual village honey festival which included soup for everyone, made from local vegetables and cooked in a huge vat on the square. Ten minute walk into Le Puy centre, excellent bus services to surrounding villages. The apartment has a high level table with rise and fall bar chairs, which gave us much amusement! We'd recommend this apartment.
