The chalet was comfortable and had all the facilities you could wish for. We were a group of 4 so there was plenty of space for all of us. The kitchen had everything you needed and the fact that it was open plan was good so the person cooking was not left out of conversation. The showers were great and always hot. There was a large decked area with picnic table and the area got the sun until later afternoon. We bought our own deckchairs not sure if the ones in the outside storage area were for general use or not. The chalet has been very well looked after and was clean and well decorated and furnished as well with very comfortable beds. As for the area we went in order to do a mixture of road cycling and mountainbiking. The chalet is actually on a montain bike route and there are numerous routes in and around Mont Dore. There are also numerous Cols to climb which would keep any road cyclist happy although one of the main routes out of Mont Dore was close the week we were there :O( We also went over to Superbesse to do some Downhill mountainbiking and were very impressed with the trails there which were fast flowing and fun. All in all I would not hestitate to recommend both this Chalet and the beautiful area it is located in. Thank you Sophie for making us welcome.

The kitchen is fairly new, is well equipped and all the cooking and dining equipment you could need is here, there is even what you need to make a cake! Having a washer/dryer is very useful and this was also quite a modern appliance. The bed was very comfortable and everything was very clean. Our host, Claire did everything she could to make us welcome. The location is a 5 minute walk from the centre of town so it's very convenient for shops, restaurants & cafes. One point to note is that access to the apartment is down quite a steep flight of stairs so if you have issues with stairs you should bear this in mind. There is a small seating area outside which gets the sun in the early afternoon and late evening for a time and is nice to sit out in. Overall a very nice place and if we were to holiday in Mont Dore again we would definitely stay here again.
