Lynne was there to meet and greet us and helped get us quickly settled into Maison Blanche. When we woke after a good sleep in the comfortable bed we could really appreciate the view, the solitude and delight of Le Mouy Vieux. The Auvergne is a wonderful part of France and Lynne's gite is an ideal place for a couple (or couple with dog) to hang out, relax, explore and enjoy the secrets of the hills and valleys either side of Issoire. The gite has everything needed for a comfortable stay with a glorious wood burning stove and an endless supply of oak logs to hand. A good hot shower too! What more could you want? Lynne and brother Malcolm were wonderful hosts and Louis made a good companion for our dog Martha. We thoroughly enjoyed their hospitality. Thank you. We loved it. And had fun. Richard Michele Martha

Lynne was a wonderful host & made us feel very welcome. The accommodation was first class - well equipped, very spacious & comfortable - especially the outside terrace because we had such lovely weather for the majority of our stay. ideally situated to explore the beautiful Auvergne region as this was our first visit to this unspoilt area. Highly recommended. Mandy & Andrew, Otley.

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.
