This region of rural France invites one to sit back and relax, to take time for walking, bathing, bird-watching, fishing or just hanging out in the garden with a glass of wine or a good book. Many villages and sites to see in the Pays de Lafayette and Haute Loire.

Our holiday rental is ideal for get together with family and friends with its 7 bedrooms sleeping up to 15 comfortably. The house is very old, (perhaps 17th century) and we have restored it with its history at heart... It faces the 15th century bridge in beautiful Lavoute Chilhac and has a rather private garden on the 3rd floor, as the houses on Rue du Pont are built into the rock cliff. There are also small shops, restaurants just steps away and m

About Rêve de Rivière: When first visiting Rêve de Rivière, one is immediately taken back in time.

The house dates back to the 17th century and is an example of an era gone by. We have taken tremendous care to respect its authentic style. The furnishings are comfortable and chosen so that all ages can come and feel at home. In Lavoute Chilhac, there is a beach ambiance in summer and you'll find people walking to the river beach or to kayak in bathing suits... it has a laid back feel to it and there is often some kind of activity going on (night birdwatching walks, artesan markets...). The bar across the bridge has concerts each week and our guests have said to enjoy listening to the music from the garden. In the off seasons, people love to visit the area for its foliage, and the many hiking paths that surround the valley. There is essentially something for all tastes and ages.

Rêve de Rivière Part 1: The Ground Floor

A large kitchen, with its original stone slab floor and chimney with a wood burning stove along with the stone sink, creates a rustic country setting. There is seating for 14 comfortably, but usually guests don't mind squeezing in another few. We have provided everything one needs to make delicious meals (with the local products).

To the right of the entry is the salon, with a convertible sofa (for one), television, a library with books in English and French, tour guides... several comfortable chairs.. and a basket of toys.

On the 1st floor: (2nd floor USA) is the master bedroom with a queen sized bed (160x200cm), armoire, closet space and view of the bridge and river. Across the hall is a large bathroom with an iron tub with shower attachment, sink, toilet and bidet.. On this floor, there is also a separate WC with sink.

Rêve de Rivière Part 2: On the 2nd floor (3rd floor USA) is another large bedroom with a queen sized bed (160x200), armoire and closet space, plus a wood burning stove for the spring and fall months.

The garden is enclosed by stone walls, has 2 tables, seating for 15, a charcoal grill and a couple lounge chairs. Our guests say that it is worth the walk up the stairs!
