Absolutely amazing house and people

5 of 5
We had a fantastic time. Mr and Mrs Coletto were fantastic and couldn't have been more helpful and attentive even if we spoke different languages the conversation was still flowing. There was everything we needed in the house, which was very clean and welcoming and the beds were comfortable. The pool was a bonus and the views are breathtaking. There is lots to do in the Auvergne region (We were there for 10 days / 4 adults mum & dad late 40s son and girlfriend very early 20s) and we never got bored. We would not hesitate to recommend La Grillion for you holiday as we are sure that you will be as happy there as we were. Thank you so much Mr and Mrs Coletto for a wonderful time x

Beautiful place in the country with fabulous views, a wonderful heated pool and compact house.

4 of 5
We spent a really relaxing week in this away cosy cottage. 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. Karen, Julian, Katy and Roger.
