The location is very peaceful and only a short drive from St Gervais d'Auvergne where we could find all we needed. The owners were kind and helpful and the cottage was clean and well equipped when we arrived. Beautiful countryside is all around with plenty of walks. We were able to enjoy some meals on the terrace and complete tranquility in the evening with a spectacular view of the night sky. Highly recommended. We will return.

The house is huge with a large, central, split-level living/dining/kitchen atrium and two separate bedroom/bathroom areas at either end, which lend themselves well to a large group (twelve of us). It's very comfortable and well-equipped and we loved eating outside on the large terrace overlooking the boules pitch (a major evening activity) and the view beyond. The surrounding countryside is beautiful and Neris-les-Bains one of the best small local towns we've ever encountered, with a good range of shop, bars, restaurants, twice-weekly market and long peaceful gardens near the spa.Jeff's bar in Neris was fun, Jeff very helpful and we had several very competitive games of mini-golf there. Highly recommend Le Vieux Moulin in Neris. We had a lovely meal there in the large outdoor courtyard; lovely food and friendly, efficient service. Further afield lots of places to explore. One highlight was canoe-ing at Gorges de Sioule, though not for the faint-hearted - the rapids were a real challenge. Looking forward to a return visit!
