About the property

The holiday cottage : charming typical bright and roomy house, entirely renovated, for 6 people, possibly 12. As you open the shutters you'll gaze out over the mountain and swallows in rising sunshine. Before going out, the whole family can easily have breakfast in the large bright kitchen, as well as in the dining-room. You may have your lunch in the 650 sqm garden or under the barn, your dinner in the little courtyard with garden furniture and BBQ. The evening you can play games in the dining room while other people in the living-room look at TV or DVD player, or read...

Electric heater in every room. The wood stove (wood included) diffuses a nice atmosphere all over the home. Lime-painted walls and friezes have been restored with care. There is a private garage. From here you can Mountain bike and walk everywhere around: there are many hiking trails and paths (marked or not) from the holiday cottage. Go birdwatching in thematic walks with the LPO (Bird Protection League)at Lavoute.

Très belle semaine

  • 5 of 5

Toute ma famille (12 personnes dont 5 jeunes enfants) était absolument ravie de ce séjour. Sourire général pendant une semaine, un peu comme si l'on était chez soi (mieux que chez soi ;)

Et de surcroît, 3 volées d'escaliers pour les jeunes enfants, résultat : plus besoin de s'en occuper, ils se gèrent très bien..;)

Quant à l'accueil, tant la disponibilité téléphonique ou écrite du propriétaire que la personne qui nous a reçus, tout a été impeccable. .Nous y retournerons bien volontiers..

Owner's Response: Merci, nous sommes toujours heureux quand une famille apprécie pleinement ses vacances dans le gîte. C'est vrai que c'est idéal pour des vacances de Noël ou un réveillon prolongé, et vous serez les bienvenus l'an prochain. Et si vous voulez changer de saison sachez que les quatre sont belles à Arlet ! les hirondelles squattent le village (parfois la maison) au printemps, en été canoé, kayak et rando vous attendent, à l'automne on vient de loin pour écouter voire observer le brame des cerfs...Merci encore et peut-être à bientôt

The area : Les Gorges de l'Allier in Auvergne (Haute-Loire) ; 500 km from Paris, 100 km from Clermont-Ferrand, 190 from Lyon airport or Rodez, 50 km from Le Puy en Velay, 14 km from Langeac (Railway station; you can rent a car at the supermarket Super U). Activities : walking, mountain biking, cycling, boating, practising ornithology, trout fishing, canoeing and down-river on the Allier in Chilhac (nautical base of Chilhac 7 km) along superb gorges with basaltic organ rock formations , and likewise in Le Chambon (7km). In Lavoute-Chilhac, surrounded by a superb Allier meander, you will find any shop and gastronomic specialty. This old Auvergne country is scattered by innumerables monastic sites and romanesque churches with mythical names : Lavaudieu, Brioude, Lavoute Chilhac, La Chaise-Dieu and its famous music festival. In Arlet : the XIIth century church with beautiful belfry, with its romanesque polychrome wooden statue of Lord Jesus on the cross.
