The apartment overlooks the river, and the natural hot spring is a short walk away. The area is breathtaking, and the volcanoes of the Central Massif are also close by. We had a super stay!

The house was beautifully positioned up from the lake, with a beautiful view. The area of France was impressive - volcanic, very historic, quiet and agricultural. The owner, Bruno, was very friendly and helpful and his English was better than he thought. At least we understood one another. The house was clean and very functional, but travelling from Scotland made it impossible to bring towels and bed linen. I was surprised I had to pay extra for them and then had to make up the beds! The top floor of the house is still under construction and is sealed off, but there is more than enough living space as it is! There were lots of activities locally - fishing, sailing, walking, cycling.There were many places to eat locally, all very reasonable. I happily recommend the house and the area if you want to see beautiful rural France
