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.

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!
