Location description from owner

The Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region

As with the Puy-de-Dome department, the landscape of the Cantal highlands changes into sweeping glacier valleys, lakes and waterfalls and wide plateaux that are inhabited by deer, goats, rock thrushes and peregrine falcons.

A nature lover's paradise, the Cantal is in an area of outstanding natural beauty, offering many opportunities to relax.

Alternatively, the area is perfect for various sporting holidays giving its diverse landscape. There are a number of golf courses across the department and it is outstanding riding, hiking and mountain climbing country, with lakes where you can swim, sail and wind-surf. The lakes also offer great opportunities for fishing, bait, fly or spinning.

The climate of the department varies greatly depending on the geographical position.

The summers are usually long and warm with temperatures often reaching 30 degrees punctuated by short sharp thunderstorms. The uplands are cooler and at altitudes of over 1000m, snow frequently lies until May.

Aurillac

The Cantal is the undiscovered jewel of France offering unrivalled hiking, cycling and exploring. It is an ancient volcanic area where picturesque green valleys are cut by tumbling streams and mountain villages centre around delightful Romanesque churches.

The distinctive red Salers cattle graze throughout the region and the sound of their bells drifts down the valleys. We spent every long summer holiday here with our three children and passed our time visiting the local village fetes, exploring the hills, cooling off with a swim at the local lake in Mauriac five miles away and taking canoeing trips to the Dordogne whose upper reaches are just a 20 minute drive away.

If you can visit in the Spring you will find wonderful displays of mountain flowers and the snow stays on the high passes until April or May. Each season here has its own distinctive attraction!

“Melodious tranquility!”

Reviewed 11 Aug 2013

Our stay at La Bastide was memorable for the most wonderful hot and sunny weather and its setting in a quiet rural hamlet with beautiful bell wearing Serrez cows grazing in fields beside the house. A working farm is very close by but its activities were largely unobtrusive, even though they were hay making. The cottage has recently had its renovations completed with new floors and plastering. We had all we needed and everything worked apart from the loo which was noisy filling but we did work out one quick press on both buttons stopped the noise. The walls are very thick and kept the house cool whilst outside boiled in ferocious temperatures. As just two adults, we only made use of one bedroom at the end of the house which had a very comfy bed and was lovely looking through the stone window frame onto the garden. The garden has shade and we had the use of a plastic table and chairs. The hamlet is set on the edge of a plain, in undulating hills with small fields for largely keeping cattle. Beautiful chestnut, beech and oak woods stretch down the steep sides of the valley below the hamlet and it was lovely exploring the leafy lanes which emerge on to the river Mars below with its chateaux and stone villages. There was much to do and for me it was a new delight to swim in the lakes from the local Mauriac Lake, which is very well managed for swimming to further afield at Enchanet, which has a lovely beach and canoeing in deeper water. We also canoed on the Dordogne from Argentat about 50 minutes away. The mountains were close by with good walks. However cycling is steep! Mauriac had a lovely market and Serrez was very interesting with good restaurants. Overall La Bastide was a very good base for us to explore this lovely area with chateaux, mountains, lakes and few English tourists!
