Week in Vichy

5 of 5
Super smart house in quiet suburb of Vichy, maybe 5-10 mins drive from the town centre and riverside. Supermarket and local shops less than 5 mins away. House is not overlooked and quite private, to rear woodland and sun flower fields. Designed for open planned living with a great deck/garden for relaxing in summer. We loved the place, only issue was my wife walked away with serious kitchen envy which will cost me dearly.

Village with Views

5 of 5
We loved St Remy! The accommodation was comfortable and we had everything we wanted. A small terrace, surrounded by a yew hedge, was ideal for eating outside.The bread shop was a two minute walk and one of the two small supermarkets stocked wonderful local butter. The lake is a 5 minute drive ( or short walk ) and has restaurants/ cafes. We were a little early in the season for evening openings, and that also applied to the Pizzeria in the village, which was actually being refurbished. There is a hotel/ restaurant in the centre of the village, but this was having some serious renovation work, and we were not entirely certain as to whether it was going to reopen as a hotel, or being converted into flats. However, Thiers is only 5 miles away if you wanted to eat out. There are numerous walks from the village, and around the lake. Do take the electric cog railway up the Puy de Dome, as the views are fantastic. Or, of course, you could always walk up!! The whole area is very picturesque and the mountain scenery is superb.
