Superbe maison dans un lieu magique !

  • 5 of 5

La maison est située à flan de montagne en surplomb par rapport à la vallée de la Cère. Dès notre arrivée, nous avons été enthousiasmés par le magnifique panorama sur les montagnes environnantes. La maison est très confortable. Et nous avons pu profité de l'ombrage naturel des arbres de la prairie pour nos repas et sieste de l'après-midi. Sans oublier le voisinage des moutons qui nous faisaient le spectacle...Maison très bien située pour la découverte du Cantal. Très bon accueil de nos hôtes, charmants et discrets.Nous recommandons sans hésitation.

super !!

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons fait un week-end ski avec des amis et avons été hébergé dans ce super gite. La propriétaire avait pris soin de nous allumer un feu de cheminée pour notre arrivée ce qui a été très appréciable étant donné le temps qu'il faisait dehors !! Gite propre, très agréable à vivre !!!

A très bientôt
