The gites are situated overlooking a small river and for much of the time this was all you could hear. The hosts were very friendly and nothing was to much trouble and although the gites are not super luxurious they are comfortable with everything you need and great value. There are a lot of walks with fantastic scenery in the surrounding area. Guillaume is the local fishing guru for the area full of advice and offers lessons or escorted fishing trips. If you like the outdoors and outdoor activities this area is well worth a visit.

They gave us a wonderful welcome to their amazing home. The Gite was perfect with absolutely everything you could possibly need for your stay. The pool area was stunning and with a lovely patio to relax in the sunshine. Beautiful gardens with lots of little quiet areas to relax. We would highly recommend this gite to anyone who craves a quiet holiday with so many beautiful places to visit.

The kitchen was well equipped. The owners were very friendly and helpful and the situation just outside Aurillac was convenient both for the town and for exploring the surrounding countryside. A most enjoyable stay.
