The cottage is spacious but cosy and has a big wood burner for nights in by a fire - it felt like home very quickly! The surrounding countryside is really beautiful and there are lots of lovely walks. It's a short car ride to the nearest village with amenities so you probably need a car. There is the Auberge de Moneaux restaurant just a short walk down the road however. Further afield there are spa/ski towns to explore and Clermont Ferrand is only about 50 minutes by car. No tv or wifi at the cottage but didn't miss either one bit! If you are looking for peace, clear air and being in nature this is a wonderful place to come. The owners, Evelyne and Michel were very helpful and prompt in all correspondence as was Olivier who met us and came to lock up. We would love to return.

We had the best of two lifestyles. The cottage is very modern with all the up do date furnishings one could hope for in such a very traditional rural setting. We could observe a very different way of life from a comfortable setting much like that which we know. The photos are accurate and the appliances are easy to use despite limited French. Patricia welcomed us on arrival and stopped by several times during the week to be sure everything was as expected. The location is excellent for touring the Auvergne. We would definitely recommend this unit to family and friends thinking of coming to this part of France.

There is plenty to do locally if you dont want to drive far and the garden to relax in after a day of activity. It is a short walk into Besse for the bakers, supermarket, bank, bars and restaurants. The market is on Monday which has local produce as well as the usual stalls.
