A friendly perch in a gorgeous location

  • 5 of 5

Ambert is an interesting medieval town right in the center of the incredibly beautiful Parc naturel régional Livradois-Forez. The Gite Le Mas, on a hill above Ambert, where you can see a Neolithic dolmen from the car as you twist your way up the road, is a perfect base for exploring the lushly green region, both during walks right out the door of the gite in the tall pine forest across a lovely fresh meadow, or by exploring by car, foot, or tourist train the rich variety of sights, both natural and cultural, in the region. The gite is well-equipped with a well-functioning kitchen, two bedrooms with skylights that invite fresh air, and a living room with huge picture window that looks out onto the green meadow and forest. All these things aside, though, your host Francois (and his very sweet dogs Doushka and Mariol) is the best reason to stay at this gite; he will make you feel right at home. A more congenial host could not be found. Francois supplies many excellent books and brochures in the gite with information about all aspects of the area, but in addition he is willing to guide you to the best restaurants in Ambert and explain anything you want to know in as much (or little) detail as you would like. A truly interesting man, he is also a marvelous cook! We highly recommend his welcoming first night dinner with three courses and wine. We were sorry to say goodbye and hope we will see him again someday. Merci beaucoup for everything, Francois.

Wunderschöne Wohnung in früherem Bauernhaus

  • 4 of 5

Idyllisch und sehr ruhig gelegen, die Wohnung ist sehr geschmackvoll renoviert, Francois ist ein sehr netter und dabei unaufdringlicher Vermieter und sein Hund ebenso.

un très agréable sejour en Auvergne

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un très agréable séjour dans ce gite , au calme, avec de grands espaces . Avec un peu de chance vous pourrez , comme nous , voir une biche et son faon par la fenêtre du salon .

Le proprio étant accueillant , le contact est très facile . Il est toujours de bon conseil pour les visites à faire et les itinéraires les plus judicieux .

Quant a notre chien Manolo , il a pu s’éclater en compagnie de Douska et Mariol

Le cadre où se situe le gite fait que le débit de la connexion internet est assez faible, mais ce manque est largement compensé par le superbe environnement

Je recommande ce gite sans aucune hésitation

Owner's Response: merci beaucoup pour cette appréciation . Vous avez été des locataires formidables et pourtant vous veniez de loin pour assez peu de temps. Vôtre chien a fait le bonheur du mien qui avait le même âge. Dommage que nous ne nous soyons pas vus plus longtemps pour échanger nos histoires de voyage. Peut être une autre fois? Sachez que vous serez toujours les bienvenus chez nous J'espère que vous avez retrouvé vôtre domicile avec plaisir ainsi que vos activités professionnelles

A delightful and secluded retreat
