“Great location for exploring central france”

Reviewed 13 Aug 2019

We have just got back from a 7 night stay in this l9vely peaceful cottage. It is set out in the country side and has all essential ameinitys. Andrew the owner laid out a information pack with suggestions to go and the first one we tried which was the lake with a man made beach was excellent so much so that our 3 kids wanted to go back another 2 times on the Friday we went it had a market on leading down to the beach. Also from the cottage you are only a hour away from the volcanos which has a train going to the top for the lazy people lol we walked it.The kids also had a welcome surprise at finding s9 many little lizards around the garden. Would recently recommend and would definitely stay again.

Just returned from a 4 night stay at this fantastic cottage which is conveniently situated. It is very comfortable and extremely well equipped. The only slight criticism I would make is the linen/towel situation but despite this I have no hesitation in recommending it.
