A truly lovely villa, which ticked all the boxes we wanted from a Holiday!
We spent 2 very enjoyable weeks, as two families of four, with children ranging from 8 to 17.
Just as the photos imply, the property is very well appointed, with spacious rooms, well laid out and provide everything you could want from a holiday villa. The kitchen is very functional for a large group/family, with a separate utility area. The living space was flexible, with 2 separate eating areas, 1 inside and 1 outside – depending on your requirement for sun/shade and the time of day.
Outside, the pool is a really good size with pool lights, which allowed us to swim late into the night. The surrounding area was large and provided a fantastic space to laze by the pool on very comfortable loungers. The garden provided a table tennis table and was also fully stocked with bikes for all the party’s use, in various sizes. Kayaks – 2 doubles and a single were also available (along with suitable buoyancy aids), with direct access onto the river at the bottom of the garden.
The local area also provided excellent facilities on your doorstep – Intermarche – a 5 minutes’ drive away and Boulangeries in both villages, linked by a safe cycling route. Paddle boards and electric boats were available for hire in St Eulalie D’Olt and a good high ropes course was only 10 minutes away. The Aubrac plateau was a 30 minute drive away and provided breath-taking scenery, as well as another high ropes course at one of the ski-stations.
Overall, if you love France, enjoy the freedom self-catering offers and want privacy away from the masses to relax, then this is well worth considering. We could not fault the property, Jean-Michel could not have been more helpful and the surrounding countryside and villages are just beautiful.
