Beautiful cottage with stupendous views

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is absolutely perfect - warm and cheerful and equipped with everything you could possibly need. The glassed verandah/dining room is divine and looks out over a gorgeous garden and fabulous countryside. Don't let the road worry you - we saw about 6 cars in the week we stayed. Fabulous cycling and walks from the door. The owner is an absolute delight - a perfect blend of being very friendly and helpful, but also very careful not to intrude on the privacy of her guests. Nothing was too much trouble, and she was very patient with our terrible French as well as having excellent English. We only had a week here, but will definitely return for longer on our next trip to France to further explore the area. You do need a car for shopping and expeditions to markets and discovering the greater area. Unreservedly recommended for lovers of the French countryside, cyclists and walkers and those who just like to sit in a gorgeous garden looking at a wonderful view, listening to bird song and sipping a pre-dinner aperitif.

Fantastic cottage in a beautiful part of France

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is really something special. It is perfect for anyone wanting to relax and unwind, especially nature lovers. We saw lots of different birds and wildlife both in the lovely garden and nearby. The cottage was extremely clean, well kept and comfortable. The sun room was perfect for enjoying the view or bird watching over breakfast and the wood burner made the living room cosy in the chilly September evenings. The owner was quick to respond and very helpful and welcoming. She gave us a mobile phone number to contact her with any problems we might have (though we did not need to use it). The area is fantastic for walking with options from the cottage itself or mulitiple different circuits clearly signed in every local village. We will definitely return and could happily have stayed forever!

Fabulous cottage - we loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect cottage holiday to escape, unwind and relax. The cottage was extremely clean, warm and inviting. The owner; Mme Marie-Pierre David was extremely helpful and kind and nothing was too much trouble. The views are stunning and the nature surrounding the cottage was excellent, just a shame we forgot the binoculars! The log burner was a cosy addition for those slightly chilly May evenings. Would definately return and recommend to family and friends. To be honest we were reluctant to leave!!

Un havre de paix.

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons découvert une maison charmante dans un paysage verdoyant. Après un acceuil très sympathique, nous avons pu apprécier et profiter d'un calme devenu si rare. La veranda très bien orientée et très spacieuse nous a permis de bénéficier d'une pièce à vivre très agréable, en début et fin de journée. Nous n'avons pas eu le temps de découvrir toutes les balades à proximité, mais nous avons découvert de très beaux chemins. Nous remercions la propriétaire de nous avoir permis ce moment de plénitude.

Gîte à recommander

  • 5 of 5

Location en tous points fidèle au descriptif sur le site. Propreté irréprochable.

Accueil chaleureux. Bien suivre les conseils de Madame David en ce qui concerne l'approvisionnement.

Matériel en quantité, et de grande qualité; tout est prévu et pensé pour que le séjour soit facilité et agréable. (y compris: sécurités concernant de jeunes enfants).

Gîte isolé qui convient parfaitement aux amoureux de nature qui seront comblés: vue exceptionnelle depuis la véranda et le jardin, nombreuses balades pédestres, y compris au départ du gîte. Flore et faune omniprésents. Cueillettes en fonction de la saison: mûres, châtaignes, noisettes.....

Le séjour a été fort agréable et très apprécié.

Owner's Response: Ma recommendation : prévoir les courses du week-end avant d'arriver à la maison. Celà évite de retourner au Mayet de Montagne ou Lapalisse, alors que l'on a effectué un long trajet.

Un petit coin superbe pour un séjour magnifique

  • 5 of 5

Je n'ai pas grand chose à rajouter tellement les commentaires précédents sont très élogieux. Je peux juste confirmé tout ce qui a été dit et même plus.....Nous avons, nous aussi, adoré notre semaine de vacances dans cette très charmante maisonnette où rien ne manque. Au alentours, vous pouvez trouvé toutes sortes de visites : châteaux, Vichy et son petit train touristique qui vous permet de découvrir cette ville magnifique, Moulins et son Centre National du costume de scène (entre-autres), etc.....Sans parler des randonnées et belles ballades. Nous retournerons très certainement en vacances chez Marie-Pierre, qui bichonne sa jolie maison avec beaucoup d' amour et prends bien soin de ses vacanciers. Merci à vous.
