We had a lovely stay in this rustic but well equipped house which is in a tranquil, rural location with big skies and views overlooking a valley and further towards mountains - yet only a conveniently short drive to the nice little town of Auzances with its decent supermarket, pharmacy, bank etc.
The property has a lovely big garden to sit in or wander around with a shaded terrace for eating outdoors or (as in our case) just doing nothing!. The impressive living room provides a wonderful space for relaxing in the evening or avoiding the heat of the day and the cinema system is a real bonus - backed up by a substantial library of films.
We visited Aubusson about 35 min's drive away which is a typical French market-town with a couple of nice restaurants tucked by the river, but would particularly recommend a jaunt slightly further afield to the Puy de Domes for the enjoyable train-ride to the top, dramatic views of the volcanic landscape from the summit and the welcome surprise of a very good restaurant in the visitor centre.
Given the rustic nature of the house, people with small children or restricted mobility would need to take extra care - for example on the open wooden staircase, but we had a lovely stay and would happily recommend it. The owner and property manager were very friendly, responsive and helpful.
