Nadege the housekeeper welcomed us with home made biscuits and we lacked for nothing. The area was stunning and we enjoyed many beautiful walks in the mild, dry weather. We went up Puy de Dome by train, but walked up Puy de Pariou and this was probably our highlight, because of the stunning views. We also did several local walks and found the information we obtained from the Livradois- Forez National Park information centre at St Gervais sous Meymont invaluable. We bought a book of suggested walks from there. We loved Thiers and had a wonderful meal at La Belle Excuse. In fact, we fell in love with the whole region because of the variety of the beautiful landscape and the richness of the wildlife. We will never forget the wood full of cyclamen near Donat or the view from the top of La Roche de Volpe near Ambert. We would highly recommend a holiday here. Thank you Anne Marie.

The heated pool is fantastic – our first four days were very hot and it was brilliant to be able to use the pool to relax and cool off. The grounds around the cottage are mainly meadow with some wonderful old trees and also an abundance of buddleia bushes which attracted a wide variety of butterflies. We were welcomed with a gift of goats cheese from the creamery along the lane and some honey from Lucas's hives! Everything in the house is very clean and functions as it should, although a little small in the cottage, we were able to make use of the annex as we were four adults. Both had excellent shower and bathroom facilities and everything you could need on holiday. The outside space was fabulous. Our only issue was that one night, some large hornets came into the house attracted by the lights – but we were able to remove them and were careful to keep the doors closed when the lights were on after that! We also found the cottage very hot, an electric fan for the hot nights would have been welcome, but as it got cooler later in the week this wasn't an issue. It really is a beautiful place and we found the peace and quiet very relaxing. The surrounding towns and villages were also quiet as a lot of the traders seemed to choose the week we visited to take their own holidays – after the main holiday season was over we guessed! We didn't have time to fully explore and would love to return to find out more about the region one day. Thank you, Lucas and family, for the use of your wonderful holiday cottage.
