good times in murat

  • 5 of 5

also our french is a bit poor, it was easy to get in touch with the landlord and his team in murat so that we were awaided when we arrived. as the carpark is 3 minutes to walk, we found that the other drivers had enough patience as we blocked the road for unloading the baggage. the house is huge with a very large living and dining room and lots of lovely bedrooms. ours had a very good bed. the only thing we were a bit surprised is the bell on the major's hall that is not too far and where the bell rings during the night. but we changed to open a window in another room, so it was rather quiet and we slept well. as most days were sunny, we had excellent petit dejeuner at the balcony with fresh baguette from the boulanger 2 mins away. the rooms were clean and in the kitchen we found anything we needed to cook - what we used quite a lot. and we stayed there for walks where there is many of them either from the door or with just a little drive. the house is really bit so it has many etages, that means it is a bit to walk up and down, but not at all a problem! (just to know). we definitely had a great week and we were sorry having to leave. thanks for the possibility to stay in this house!

Idéal pour un regroupement familiale

  • 5 of 5

La maison de Michel - spacieuse, calme et chaleureuse - est très bien placée dans le charmant village de Murat. Les pistes de ski sont à 10 min en voiture et il est même possible de prendre le train pour ne pas avoir à trouver une place de parking. Michel a quant à lui été un hôte prévenant et toujours très disponible. Une très belle expérience que je recommande chaudement !

Joyeux Noël en famille

  • 5 of 5

Nous cherchions un lieu neutre, pour se retrouver en famille, afin que chacun profite pleinement du séjour, sans la pression de l'hôte, et ce fut le cas! Maison confortable, chaleureuse, équipée, où chacun (enfants comme adultes) a su trouver son espace de liberté, mais aussi la possibilité de pouvoir se réunir sur les temps du repas, de jeux (à disposition), et bien sûr, de fêtes! La maison est très bien située, au coeur de la vieille ville, et à proximité des commerces. Des chemins de randonnée démarrent du bourg, et bien d'autres balades sont possibles à quelques km à la ronde. La Maison des Volcans (office de tourisme), est très agréable et équipée high-tech! Bref, nous avons passé une très très bonne semaine.

Très belle semaine

  • 4 of 5

La triplette Cantal + Murat + cette maison = ingrédients d'une superbe semaine en famille. La maison, vaste, confortable et authentique accueillent sans peine les grandes tribus. Sa localisation au cœur de Murat, bourg extrêmement vivant, est un point de départ idéal vers de multiples activités. Sans doute y reviendrons-nous.... Location tout à fait conseillée.
