About Florence Vignon Tranchand

I am an active retired person and psychotherapist. I am not young enough to slog all day long in the woods and along the streams. I enjoy less challenging leisure activities so I go biking on flat paths and swimming in the ocean. I am strongly attached to my rugged region that is Haute-Loire because of its landscapes, its light, the change of scenery it offers me every time and my house.

Florence Vignon Tranchand purchased this house in 1985

Why Florence Vignon Tranchand chose Haute-Loire

My husband and I built this house from a barn that only had its 4 walls, a roof and the courtyard. The courtyard seduced me. It became the place of our week-ends and holidays with our children. Now our children come here with their children. It is a paradise for children because of nature, the animals and the quietness. My daughter has been living here for 6 years with her family. Now it is not inhabited all the time which is a shame because it is really a beautiful place for nature lovers.

What makes this house unique

In short, the assets of this house: all modern conveniences, nature, beauty of the landscapes, the quietness, the total change of scenery and the proximity of Le Puy-en-Velay which is an important place with artistic curiosities.

Une semaine inoubliable....

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé une très belle semaine dans une maison confortable, accueillante et très bien équipée. Le jardin est un endroit charmant où il fait bon se détendre et prendre ses repas. La région est pleine de surprises et de découvertes, lieu idéal pour la randonnée. L'architecture de la région est très riche. Nous garderons un excellent souvenir de notre séjour.

gîte agréable et fonctionnel

  • 4 of 5

gîte agréable et fonctionnel pour les 7 adultes que nous étions pour un séjour d' une semaine. Bon accueil. Nous avons apprécié l'espace et le calme de ce gîte . à recommander pour les amateurs de nature et les pêcheurs. Restau 1 * à Pont d' Alleyras à environ 12 km relativement cher vu son étoile mais cuisine vraiment succulente et inventive.

Owner's Response: Merci à cette bande de copains d'avoir été indulgents, ils ont essuyé les platres de la première location de la saison et ont manqué de guide d'utilisation pour l'électro ménager, leurs remarques m'ont été utiles. Merci aussi de m'avoir laissé une maison impeccable. FV

The house, perched 800 m in altitude in the slopes of the Allier Gorge, is located in a small basin surrounded by woods. Nature here is unspoilt and woods abound with mushrooms and blueberries.
