Make A Holiday Rental House in Ouides, France, Your Home Away From Home

France has always been a popular holiday destination for people from the UK, and the Auvergne region is one such area that is well visited. Something of a hidden gem, it boasts valleys and mountains, forests and rivers, and due to its geology, also has a number of hot springs. There are many places with accommodation to choose from when considering taking a vacation in Auvergne, with a good option being to stay in a holiday rental house in Ouides. Coming with all the mod-cons that make life comfortable, as well as a kitchen to prepare meals in, it is ideally placed to both act as a peaceful retreat from the stresses of everyday life and to explore the surrounding area.

Things to Do on Holiday in Ouides, France

Enjoying the beautiful French countryside is definitely a highlight of any holiday in Ouides, and one of the best ways to do this is by trying the leisure activities that are available in the area.

Adrenaline junkies need not fear, though, as white-water rafting is just the thing to raise the pulse!

Well furnished and spacious house with amazing view over one of the most picturesque city in France. 3 familiies with 8 children (age 2-12) and plenty of space for every one. Well equipped kitchen and good dining area both indoor and outdoor. Jean Francois was a good host and shared good information about local attractions and "gourmet" traders.

It has stunning views overlooking the town and notably towards the cathedral and the Virgin Mary perched on a volcanic outcrop. The villa was comfortable and well furnished with French traditional furniture and small modern but adequately equipped kitchen. There was plenty of cutlery and crockery. It was lovely sitting outside on the patio in a very nice garden well secured and pet friendly. You wil lhowever need good ground clearance on your car to get through the gate. There are plenty of very interesting local attractions from chateaus in the Haute Loire, churches, Abbeys and of course Le Puy Cathedral. The local landscape is fascinating, dissected valleys and high gentle rolling plateaus all enabling walking for all standards. For the adventurous there are activities trips down the Allier and Loire valleys. We sampled excellent cuisine within walking distance in Le Puy and the steep incline back will shave off a few calories. The owner was very responsive about enquiries and made sure that someone met us on arrival. We opted for paying extra for linen and cleaner.

Pool (with sun loungers) is wonderful set in large, well-tended and planted gardens. For us with 3 teenagers there was enough to do for a week in the area if we wanted to go out. My son and I loved the table-tennis! Owners Bernard and Ghislaine were on site which was an advantage - although our French is limited and they do not speak English, they could not have been more friendly and helpful, and we did just fine for the week with what we had! Bernard spotted that one of our tyres had 'popped' and took us to his local garage to help us sort out - we were very grateful for this. Just one note for info: local tax per person, per night, are not included in the price, nor is electricity. I think this added nearly 40 Euros? 100% recommended if you want quality facilities, peace, and relaxation in a rural setting with villages and a town within 5-30 minutes away, in a beautiful part of France (and we've seen plenty!), run by friendly hosts
