Lovely lake view in the Auvergne

5 of 5
This chalet has a lovely view of the lake and the wooded hills. A lovely view at breakfast and during the evening meal. The chalet was very well appointed with all necessary utensils. While I loved the lake, trips to Puy de Dome and Massif de Sancy were also within an hour's drive. All in all a lovely introduction to the Auvergne.

Very charming and relaxing property

4 of 5
The cottage is located in a very rural location and as a result we had a lovely relaxing stay on the run up to the Vichy Ironman event. We were fortunate to have a heat wave 28deg to 32deg so sun bathing in the garden was a delight with the lovely views and overall peace and quiet. The local area is very rural and we didn't realise how difficult it can be to find an eating place in the local area - especially in the evening, hence we enjoyed the tremendous selection of foods in the intermarche supermarket in Auzances and ate in the cottage 3 evenings. We did do some driving and found the highlights to be: trip to Vichy and Aubusson (shuts down early eve), swimming in Lake Champagnat - basic but nice enough (Ironman training week), drive to Lake Chambon although very busy at Lake, small cafe at roadside enroute to Rougnat from Auzances - lovely salad for lunch and local roads are quiet for cycling training runs (take care for the occasional car as these roads although very quiet can be quite fast). The cottage itself was very nice with its old farmhouse feel and character and everything we needed really. The home cinema was excellent whether it was my wife and I relaxing with a movie or my 20+ year olds who joined us later in the week with so many pics to chose from.
