Peaceful, comfortable rural gite with an excellent view.
A great base for trips into Lyon and for exploring the local area. This gite is simple, straightforward, well equipped and comfortable. Large windows with good shutters make it light and airy. It's in a very peaceful location 1km from the village, but not totally isolated. To the rear there is a lovely sheltered garden that is a real sun trap. The front has a great view over the Loire Valley, to Roanne, and in March - snow-topped peaks on the edge of the Auvergne. Buzzards, lizards and other wildlife, all seen from the gite. Good wood-burning stove for the chilly evenings plus efficient electric heaters. We visited Lyon (loads to see and do), Thiers, Vichy and Roanne (good little Art Gallery & Archaeological Museum) - plus motor tours around the local area - authentic and beautiful rural France. Good small supermarket in St Just la Pendu (10 mins by car). In Tarare (20 minutes by car), larger shops and good rail links into Lyon (easier than driving in). We were blessed with blue skies and sunshine all week.
thank you very much
This is the first time that I have given a 5 star rating. The gite is in a wonderful location.
Set in the hillside of France this gite as been lovely restored by the owner Dominique. Look very carefully at the brickwork and you will find a particular stone with the date the building was build with the initials of the builders and that of the person who paid them.
The gite is well equipped and very comfortable. On arrival you are greeted with a bottle of red wine from the local region.
Sitting on the terrace with a glass of wine looking at a beautiful sunset if you are very quiet you will see the wild deer grazing in the field with a evening chorus of the crickets and the occasional cuckoo.
The gite is located just outside the sleepy village of chrissiamont which boasts of a small cafe and shop, the people are very friendly give them a wave and they will wave back with a smile. Dominique is very helpful and can advise you on most issues and places to visit.
Marvin gaye the soul singer sang a particular song where ever I lay my hat that's my home well I layed my hat at this gite it was truly my second home.
It be a pleasure to receive you
thank you very much
Comfortable home with stunning scenery. Very quiet rural area. Bedrooms on separate floors ( useful to know if have very young children). Shower is excellent and great to have a washing machine. Some instructions for the combination type oven would be really useful.
Lovely setting overlooking a wide expanse of beautiful French countryside. Easily reached by car, only an hour or so West of Lyon. The property itself I would say is ideal for a family of four, or a couple. It is clean and well maintaind. I would say if you cook whilst on holiday it doesn't have as many utensils and pots and pans as you may wish but enough to get by. It was a bit cold on our arrival but the property warmed up quickly with the aid of the wall heaters. The mezzanine area in particular gets warm quickly.
Due to the rural setting make sure you stock up on essentials before you arrive, there is a decent sized fridge / freezer, a mini oven, microwave and full sized hob.
Dominique was a very pleasant, friendly and unobtrusive host and once introduced will not trouble you but is available if needed.
If you want a getaway from it all break, this is the place for you!
Merci de la part des Gagnon
Hôtes accueillants et sympathiques, panorama superbe, gîte bien équipé, très propre et bien entretenu. Une petite surprise à l'arrivée... Je ne dis pas, c'est une surprise et j'ignore si c'est à tout les coups, mais on a bien aimé. Recommandé aux amoureux de la nature.
Très agréable séjour malheureusement trop court.
Seul bémol : la pancarte indiquant le gite en contrebas du chemin d'accès pour s'y rendre, est par terre, ce qui ne permet pas de le trouver facilement pour qui ne connaît pas le coin.
