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 séjour parfait

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons été accueillis avec une extrême gentillesse par Mme David propriétaire des lieux, dans un écrin de nature et de quiétude que nous recherchons tant loin de la vie trépidante habituelle. Un jardin magnifique et une vue sublime sur les collines de la montagne bourbonnaise. Sans compter sur le délicieux miel que notre hôtesse récolte dans ses ruches et dont elle nous a fait partager son expérience. Bref une aventure à recommander à tous les amoureux de calme, de nature et de randonnées dans un milieu encore 100% sauvage. Pas de doutes nous reviendrons l'an prochain!

Nous avons été très heureux de nous retrouver à nouveau dans la petite maison de "Blanche Neige" (petite, vue de l'extérieur) car elle cache bien son jeu. A l'intérieur, elle est beaucoup plus grande qu'elle ne parait et est très bien équipée.

L'endroit est calme, la vue est superbe, quelle joie de prendre ses repas dans la véranda et le beau petit jardin est idéal pour se reposer.

La localisation de la maison permet de faire de nombreuses visites, randonnées ou ballades. Cette année nous avons découvert la route magique des Noes, c'est bluffant (voir sur internet)

Et que dire de la propriétaire de la maison, elle est toujours aussi accueillante, souriante et discrète.

Nous recommandons vivement cette location et nous reviendrons
