Farmhouse | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Large 1875 farmhouse gite in a quiet Languedoc village. If you fancy somewhere to relax or entertain with plenty of outdoor activities for all seasons and wonderful local cuisine, look no further! Perfect for walking, cross-country skiing, swimming in lakes and rivers, paragliding, cycling & horse riding. Or now it's getting colder, how about wrapping up in blankets on a horse-pulled cart and mingling with Europe's largest mammal, bisons!
Our recently renovated farmhouse has a large, open-plan groundfloor living room/dining room/kitchen, spread over both the original living area and the barn for animals, which can be seen by many remaining features. A huge open fire and large comfy sofas set in the living room provide the ultimate space for cosy evenings in, whilst central heating including underfloor heating ensure the whole house is warm in the cooler months. Up on the 1st floor is a second sitting area for enjoying the view and reading, and access to the large private garden at the rear of the property where you can enjoy dining or sunbathing, overlooking the Margeride mountains.
All three spacious bedrooms are en suite. One is the original bedroom and has its own shower room and separate wc. The second bedroom is split-level, with a dressing room and large ensuite luxury bath and shower room (again with a separate wc). The third bedroom on the 2nd floor is accessed via a bridge overlooking the whole of the interior, again with en suite shower/wc room. The first and second bedrooms have double beds. The third currently has a sofa bed and is ideal for children (NB the house does not have stairgates for children).
Set in a quiet village location with towns nearby, you have wonderful local restaurants serving regional favourites a whole list of local activities available from us. We hope you will enjoy it as much as we do...

About this location
The Languedoc-Roussillon region
The house is situated between La Margeride, a mountainous region, and l'Aubrac, a volcanic and granitic plateau. It is home to many rivers such as La Truyere and L'Allier, as well as lakes including glacial lakes. The views of the landscape are stunning and the region is typically characterised by hot summers and cold winters.
It is ideal for walks, cycling, swimming in nature, horse riding, fishing and winter activities. It is rural France at its best, with local traditions - food, wine, architecture and annual festivities.
It is at 1,000 m in altitude and is near to two skiing resorts open all year:
1) Les Bouviers
The resort of Les Bouviers (40 minutes): Nordic skiing in the Margeride, 32km of cross country pistes (both traditional and skating), and 15km for snowshoes walkers. In the summer, it has 400km of trekking pistes (some of which go by the house!).
Classes and full equipment rental available, www.lesbouviers.com
2) Le Lioran
The resort of Le Lioran (1 hour): offering both alpine including off-piste and Nordic skiing. Alpine: 60 km, 42 runs, 22 lifts across 4 areas
Nordic Skiing (Col de Prat Bouc): 45km of cross country pistes (9 runs). In the summer, 15 downhill pistes and 650km of trekking pistes.
Classes and full equipment rental available, www.lelioran.com
The medieval town of Le Malzieu offers general amenities (bakery, butcher, cheese shop, pharmacy and local shop), a popular local restaurant, and a range of activities (outdoor public swimming pool, canoeing, horse riding, climbing, walks, tennis, and fishing). The bigger town of Saint Chely d'Apcher has all amenities, including a weekly street market where you can buy locally produced food as well as souvenirs.
Restaurants in the area range from 12 Euros for an authentic regional four course set menu plus wine and coffee, to Michelin star cuisine. And why not treat yourself to a half or full day natural hot spring spa in the Aubrac?

"Characterful, charming, peaceful village - and plenty to do in the local area."
The house itself is in a small, quiet hamlet but with easy access to both La Garde and St Chely D'Apacher for everyday shopping and eating. It's a magnificent barn conversion, beautifully fi… More
