We had the best of two lifestyles. The cottage is very modern with all the up do date furnishings one could hope for in such a very traditional rural setting. We could observe a very different way of life from a comfortable setting much like that which we know. The photos are accurate and the appliances are easy to use despite limited French. Patricia welcomed us on arrival and stopped by several times during the week to be sure everything was as expected. The location is excellent for touring the Auvergne. We would definitely recommend this unit to family and friends thinking of coming to this part of France.

The children loved the games room full of books, DVDs and board games. The kitchen had everything you could possibly need, even 2 raclette machines! Our hosts had lots of good ideas for places to go and things to do because they know the area so well. The swimming lake was lovely and we did the horseshoe walk around Puy de Sancy.

It is a great feeling to arrive at a week long vacation stay and realize that it is better than the pictures. We felt like guests in someone's house. We did not feel like we were in a rental. Secondly, the views from the windows are stunning! Our criteria were to find a place "away from it all" accompanied with beautiful views. This property hit the mark. The owners appear to be extremely professional and there were no surprises. We highly recommend it and we hope to return.
