We (2 adults, 2 children) stayed in this property for a week in August. The property was very clean and everything was in good working order.
Night-time and early morning temperatures were low due to the altitude, but it soon warmed up and by lunchtime it was quite hot. Le Chambon-sur-Lignon is quite small, but it has all the shops you might need during your stay (bakers, supermarkets, ice-cream parlours, pharmacy, etc.). It is an ideal base for visiting the Haute-Loire region.
The owner Miriam was very kind and helpful and responded immediately to any query or issue (including evenings and weekends). She was also very knowledgeable about the best places to visit and things to do with children, which really helped us make the most of our holiday.
We spent a week in this quiet gite in a hamlet 20km from Puy. The location is perfect for cycling the hills of Haute Loire, walking and relaxing. The owner is very welcoming and helpful. She does not speak English. There is access to a washing machine.
There is very limited bedding and no towels. Take everything with you, including pillows. There are duvets available.
The kitchen is one of the best we have seen, with a dishwasher and a large fridge freezer but there isn't much cleaning equipment so cloths, liquid etc should be taken. Also the kitchen knifes are quite blunt so take your own or a steel.
The parking is down a narrow grassy lane behind the gite. Large or low cars won't make it. My Alfa with roof box and bike was fine.
None of this detracted from the visit and it's a great location.
