The gite has a terrace with stunning views and there were fabulous sunsets when we were there. Inside it was clean and spacious with everything we could need. The village was within walking distance with a well stocked supermarket, boulangerie and bar. There were lakes nearby for our dog to swim and plenty of pretty villages to visit and great restaurants where we sampled tasty menus.

There were informative about the local area and had prepared the house perfectly. The house is loverly and very well laid out. Vichy is very close - the right distance to be out of town but near enough to get to in a very short drive. We stayed here with another family and this worked out perfectly. We would love to come back!

                                                                                                      5 of 5
                                                                                                      We enjoyed our stay at the Vieux Pommier. It is a characterful old building which has been renovated and equipped to the highest standard. The setting is very tranquil and the balcony is ideal for enjoying a long lingering meal on a warm summer's evening. Isabelle could not be more friendly or helpful. As she could not be there the whole time, she even had her friend come by to check everything was alright after an overnight storm. The gite is conveniently located for exploring Vichy and not too far from Clermont-Ferrand and the Puy de Dome. There are plenty of walking options nearby, with stacks of information including walk books and maps. English speakers should be aware that most of the information is in French and it is French TV only, but Isabelle speaks excellent English. Visitors should also be aware that it is fairly lengthy drive (20 minutes) to the main road, but that is the price you pay for such a tranquil location. Highly recommended!
