We had a wonderful week at Vieille-Brioude with our 3 children. The villa is immaculate and equipped with absolutely everything you could wish for. The rooms are clean and comfortable, each with its own bathroom, and the kitchen complete with dishwasher and croissants for breakfast. The pool was perfect for our children. Verena the owner was extremely welcoming and kind, offering us suggestions for things to do near by and generally making us feel secure and welcome. Highly recommended.
Thank you Sylvie for the warm welcome on our arrival.
The gite is exactly as described on the website and we particularly enjoyed the large balcony (weather was superb) for both our snoozes in the afternoon and our evening meal / drinks. Inside, it contains everything you need for a perfect holiday including a very comfortable bed and large shower.
There is plenty of information contained within the property about the surrounding area (places to visit etc) but given the countryside setting we particularly enjoyed our walks each day. The local village 'Vernet la Varrene' is about 4km away and contains an excellent boulangerie (open 7 days), butcher shop (which was superb) plus a small supermarket, although Issoire (20k) has several of the larger supermarkets if that is required. We really enjoyed the food at the Auberge de la Source which was circa 9km from the property and offered the usual high quality four course home cooked French lunch for 13 euros!
Whether your passion is sightseeing, relaxing, cycling or walking, this property and area has it all covered.
