Noisette Cottage was a gem of a find. The Auvergne was,to us, an unknown area of France. It is now one of our favourite departments and Allier in particular. The setting, in a quiet little road, just out of the village, surrounded by open farmland and beautiful countryside was magical.
The cottage is even better than our expectations. It is a compact, but not tiny, four roomed home with 2 large superbly appointed bedrooms each with it's own en-suite. Every room was comprehensively equipped and the compact kitchen had everything you could possibly need for your stay.
This is certainly a cottage we will return to in the near future and the area has many places for us yet to discover. An ideal place for both families and couples with a large, well.maintained, attractive, safe garden.
The whole experience was rounded off by the warm welcome from the resident owners who had very kindly supplied a lovely welcome basket of goodies.
We thought Le Rif might be difficult to find, but the sat nav info was perfect. Steve provided excellent information and advice on the property, including a warning about the local traffic conditions. The property was very spacious and an ideal location from which to tour the area. Apremont is a must see village. We also enjoyed trips to Moulins and Vichy. The local market in St Pourcain is a classically French affair, not to be missed. Would recommend to anyone looking for peace and quiet.
