This property is located in a beautiful location and well suited as a base for walks/hikes. Lapalisse has nice shops for cakes and meats, and a small supermarket for essentials. Vichy, Digoin and Roanne are easy drives within about 40mins. Le Mayet-de-Montagne is also an easy drive and has a supermarket and fuel. All unique places and we enjoyed them all very much.
Accommodation is fully equipped and would recommend to a friend who wants to get away from major towns and enjoy hill walking.
Peaceful retreat, totally relaxing.
We have had a wonderful week in this fully equipped cottage in the hill 6km above Arfueilles. Marie could not have been more friendly and helpful.
Amazing, wooded, hilly walking countryside with views forever. Walking trail guide in English would have helped, but we enjoyed the challenge!
Shop before coming as limited stores in Arfueilles.
Thank you Marie
The views were brilliant. The cottage was comfortable and had every facility.
The garden was enclosed and safe for the dogs.
The landlady was very helpful and flexible.
I was under the impression that I had paid by credit card but we worked out a way that she received the cash she expected now to chase you lot (Home Away).
Very pleasant tranquil location
Clean and tidy cottage with lots of charm. Rural "away from it all" location so great for relaxing. Comfortable and with all the essentials.
Not too far from small villages for the essentials. Vichy just 40 minutes away.
Some nice restaurants easily reached by car
Lovely owner. Very pleasant and helpful.
Beautiful cottage with stupendous views
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.
Thank you very much for your appreciation. See you soon i hope.
Fantastic cottage in a beautiful part of France
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!
Thank you for your very positive appreciation. Thus I wait for you next May...
