Well furnished and spacious house with amazing view over one of the most picturesque city in France. 3 familiies with 8 children (age 2-12) and plenty of space for every one. Well equipped kitchen and good dining area both indoor and outdoor. Jean Francois was a good host and shared good information about local attractions and "gourmet" traders.

It has stunning views overlooking the town and notably towards the cathedral and the Virgin Mary perched on a volcanic outcrop. The villa was comfortable and well furnished with French traditional furniture and small modern but adequately equipped kitchen. There was plenty of cutlery and crockery. It was lovely sitting outside on the patio in a very nice garden well secured and pet friendly. You wil lhowever need good ground clearance on your car to get through the gate. There are plenty of very interesting local attractions from chateaus in the Haute Loire, churches, Abbeys and of course Le Puy Cathedral. The local landscape is fascinating, dissected valleys and high gentle rolling plateaus all enabling walking for all standards. For the adventurous there are activities trips down the Allier and Loire valleys. We sampled excellent cuisine within walking distance in Le Puy and the steep incline back will shave off a few calories. The owner was very responsive about enquiries and made sure that someone met us on arrival. We opted for paying extra for linen and cleaner.
