About the property

Come and spend a spring, summer, autumn or winter holiday in « Elveden » / « Le gîte des lutins » , a gîte that combines traditional charm with modern conveniences. Suitable for four people, it has a large garden at the rear with play-things for children and plenty of parking-space outside the front. The property is situated at the end of a little road just outside the pretty village of Omps, in the northern part of the Châtaigneraie, that area of the Cantal (or Southern Auvergne) which the Romans planted with chestnut trees 2,000 years ago.

The gîte is two-and-a-half kms away from the neightbouring village of St-Mamet-le-Salvetat, where there is a bakery, a butchers, a pharmacy. a doctor’s surgery and a small supermarket. But the departmental town of Aurillac, with its Saturday market and shops of all kinds, is just 15 km to the north-east, and the charming market town of Maurs is just 20 km to the south.

Relaxing stay in well equipped and welcoming gite

  • 4 of 5

Our stay in the Gites des Lutins was a fantastic one despite having a bit of rain. We were welcomed by Pascale and the family on the first day to show us around the gite so we knew how everything worked, as well as receiving an overview of the area and good ideas of places to visit. This was really helpful as some of the tips were places me may not otherwise thought of going and really were lovely, such as which beach to go to at the nearby swimming lake and Marcoles, a beautiful village where we took the recommendation for L'Auberge de la Tour which was fabulous. The gite itself is really well equipped with high quality furnishings and equipment and is a very warm, welcoming and homely base, with beautifully thought out decor. We were concerned about head height in the kitchen/bathroom/bedroom areas as my partner is 6'9" but he managed perfectly well, the only place that was a squeeze was the access to the loo under the stairs (hence the reduction in rating). Pascale and family are very friendly and helpful, the boys speak fantastic English, but I was really glad that Pascale spoke to me in French to help me with my language ability, which assisted me no end. We were not so lucky with the weather and had quite a bit of rain, but being from Yorkshire, we're quite used to that so made the most of visiting as many places as we could. The area is stunningly beautiful with rolling hills in the local area and impressive mountains to the north - both are equally picturesque. The distinct lack of British tourists made this area better for practicing our French and we felt that the local people were incredibly friendly and helpful. We were quite shocked when we visited Bergerac for an overnight stay on the way home to hear English being spoken all around us after being immersed in French for the preceding couple of weeks. Overall, we returned home feeling relaxed and refreshed after a fabulous holiday. My thanks to Pascale and family for their well thought out gite and their welcome, it made the holiday very easy!

Une petite merveille

  • 5 of 5

Si vous recherchez le calme , la nature , une décoration soignée et une qualité d'accueil exceptionnelle , c'est au gite des Lutins qu'il faut que vous déposiez vos bagages. Nous venons d'y passer 15 jours et avons quitté Pascale et sa famille avec regret. Le gite est très très agréable , rénové avec des matériaux de qualité et très bien équipé. Tout y est , comme si vous étiez à la maison.

La piscine chauffée est juste merveilleuse et il est bien agréable de s'y baigner après une journée de visite dans les alentours.

Enfin, Pascale , toujours de bonne humeur , passionnée par le Cantal , ses paysages et bien d'autres sujets vous conseillera dans vos visites pour que votre séjour reste inoubliable.

C'est ce qu'on appelle un accueil hors pair.

Merci encore pour ces deux belles semaines.

Xavier , Laure et les enfants

Nous étions venus l'année dernière. Nous avions trouvé un endroit charmant, calme, un gîte de qualité, une décoration soignée, un accueil chaleureux.

Nous n'avons pas résisté, nous y sommes revenus cette année. Lors de notre séjour fin septembre, grâce à une très belle météo, nous avons même eu le plaisir de pouvoir profiter de la piscine ! Nous avons à nouveau été enchantés, tant par le lieu que par les propriétaires qui sont très accueillants sans s'imposer.

Bref, que du bonheur !!!

Si vous aimez le calme, la nature et l'authenticité, n'hésitez pas, réservez !!!!!

Petit coin de paradis

  • 5 of 5

Véritable source de bien-être et de paix, retour à la vie sauvage et à la beauté naturelle de la campagne, loin de la cacophonie urbaine. Petit endroit de paradis qui porte bien son nom, on pourrait presque croire à l'apparition de quelques créatures magiques par son décor exquis. J'ai passé une semaine magnifique avec ma famille et nous avons été ravis par l'accueil fourni par nos hôtes. Sans mâcher mes mots, ils étaient vraiment chaleureux et à notre disposition. De plus, nous avons été bien conseillés pour découvrir la région à travers les multiples activités qu'elle offre, dont la randonnée. Je conseille vivement ce gîte, que ce soit pour un séjour en amoureux ou en famille! Le voyage en vaut largement le détour et vous sans mentir, vous serez accueillis comme des rois! Encore merci pour cette semaine! (Chloé avec Sylvie, Gilbert et Nicole)

Nor must we forget either the beautiful surrounding countryside with its broad vistas, rolling meadows, lakes, dramatic autumn colours and magical evening light, or the picturesque villages, or the friendly atmosphere of the local street-markets, or the seven or eight varieties of local hand-crafted cheeses! In the summer, you can go swimming or boating in the large lake-cum-reservoir from the sandy beach at Lacapelle-Viescamp, about six km. north-west of Omps. A tree-top adventure trail (parcours) has recently been added to the facilities there for use by older children. In the winter, there are skiing facilities in the mountains at Le Lioran, about 50 km. to the north-east.

The Cantal is a very rural French Department and much of its northern half is in the mountains of the Massif Central. As the whole Cantal has less than 150,000 inhabitants, it is less densely populated than many British towns. In the north, its mountain paths are ideal for walkers, ramblers and naturalists ; in the south, it is traversed by the River Lot ; and if you are looking for peace, quiet and unpolluted air, then the entire Department is just the place to spend an unforgettable holiday.

To our regret we do not accept dogs.
