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!

The house is in a quiet suburb near Vic and a good walk from the boulangerie. I would say that 6 plus 2 in the bunk beds is pushing it for shared inside space. Also only one bathroom and a separate toilet. And we were surprised not to have towels provided. Realistically you have to hope for good weather so you can all be outside as the lounge/diner cannot sustain so many people. Kitchen is well equipped but cracked and chipped crockery needs replacing. Also no oven gloves or oven tray. These can be easily sorted. We could only find five cushions for the garden chairs. The beds were comfy and we all slept very well.
All in all we enjoyed our stay.
This house represents value for money.
