What a lovely place this is. Pictures don’t do justice. We loved staying here and route 11 goes just behind the house, we did it finishing at mandailles for lunch (restaurant d’or),it’s really an ideal location for hikes combined with a relaxed getaway overlooking the valley. Bring some essentials and even wine from the city and just sit on that terrace and see the world go by - bliss! Theres a little (very little) shop in st julien 5-10min away by car with essentials and also in mandallilles which is a bit bigger (dont expect much!). You can def buy cheese everywhere even from the farmers down the road. The gps will take you straight to the house, and don’t worry about the last stretch, it’s steep! weather was pefect At the end of september but i bet it gets quite icy, my only concern would be the snow/ice on those steep roads. The house is well equiped and you only need to bring towels and food, it was great for us as we were just two and a dog. Garden is perfectly enclosed and they provide a little bed and bowls if you have a dog. You can go to the auberge col de legal to have lunch its a bit of an adventure and the gorges de la jordanne are not far from there. However when we come back we will just do trails. The area and house are great and if you want to feel like you are in the middle of nowhere, this is your place! Thanks for restoring this beautiful Gite and allowing us to meet a new area in France - we will be back!

Good planning at the supermarket to save time driving needed. Good mobility essential to fully appreciate this hidden gem!
Silence and utter beauty with home from home accommodation . Owners are a delight and have achieved a great holiday place to visit. Pitch black skies at night allow for a star filled sky to marvel at. Highly recommend a stay at The Hayloft!
