About the property

The perfect base for exploring the Auvergne

Our spacious house in the village of Montaigut le Blanc in the Auvergne region of France offers visual treats and life-style pleasures. It is a base for unmatched hill- walking and wheeled exploration of a fabled region and there is comfortable space for 8 persons with an intimate and welcoming core perfect for 2. The house is best suited for a maximum of 3 couples, because of the bed configuration and in the interest of privacy. The base price listed is for 5 guests. Fees apply for additional guests (maximum 8).

From the windows, balconies and gardens there are beautiful views of the village and countryside. Modern touches include international satellite TV, high speed internet connection, Smart TV , BluRay player, and free use of phones.

The 200-square-metre (2200 square-foot) house is built of stone, finished to modern standards. The owner’s renovation, completed in the early 2000s, transformed the structure with flair and respect for the building’s original character. The previous major renovation was in Napoleonic times, and you can find traces of an earlier construction from the 16th century. The building is on a list of architectural treasures of the commune – the regional office of the Architect of France contributed significantly to the redesign.

About Christabel Padmore

We live in Victoria British Columbia, Canada, but travel to France regularly. We have two small children, so have recently made the house suitable for families with young children. My husband and I are both professional chefs and own a small business.

Christabel Padmore purchased this house in 1997

Why Christabel Padmore chose Montaigut-le-Blanc

This property has been in our family for two generation. My husband and I were married in the village in 2008 and we visit regularly with our two children, as well as my brother's family. My father bought and restored this property meticulousy, maintianing it's regional and historic character. I inherited this property alongside my brother last year. Between myself and the rest of the family, the house is occupied for approximatly three months by family. This is also the time when we make improvements for tenants.

A very comfortable house in a pretty village

  • 5 of 5

The house is very well equipped and situated in a picturesque village. The owners have restored it very tastefully. The accommodation is spacious. We were a party of four adults and two children staying with plenty of room to enjoy ourselves and relax when we wanted. My family who live nearby visited us and we had a great time. I would book this property again.

Comfortable and well equipped

  • 4 of 5

A very comfortable house for two couples. Very well equipped kitchen, plenty of towels and linen. Arrival instructions need to be clearer and a proper BBQ would be nice. Francoise was very helpful. Good internet. Good location for sightseeing. Need good driving skills for parking near the house. We enjoyed it. Good value.

A lovely and welcoming family house

  • 5 of 5

La Maison des Vignerons is a lovely big and welcoming house in a beautiful village in the Massif Central, a great location with many walks to do. Much appreciated were the sunny dining area and the traditional yet very functional kitchen. The blend between stone and wood of this big house, as well as the space, makes it ideal for families including with young kids.

"La maison des vignerons" est un lieu parfait pour passer de merveilleuses vacances! Nous sommes venus en famille avec notre chien et rien n'a manqué à notre séjour. Un gîte charmant, agréable, typique et très bien équipé! Merci pour ces beaux souvenirs que nous avons pu nous créer.

urgemütlich erholen

  • 5 of 5

hat die Erwartungen übertroffen: liebevoll und gemütlich eingerichtet, viel Platz für die ganze Familie, die Verwalterin war immer ansprechbar und hat sich sofort gekümmert, als ein kleines Malheur auftrat. Zum Fahren ist der Ort bzw das Parken für größere Autos (ich habe einen VW-Bus)etwas abenteuerlich. Ein Hinweis im Vorfeld, wie oder wo man fahren soll, wäre im Vorfeld vielleicht sinnvoll. Der Ort selbst romantisch, ruhig, sehr freundlich, ein guter Ausgangspunkt für Ausflüge in die nördliche Auvergne.
