A beautiful, very comfortable house in a delightfully peaceful rural setting. Perfect for relaxing and as a base for touring the area. Cycling to the swimming lake in the nearby village is fantastic day out.

About the neighbourhood
There is a host of outdoor activites in the area to suit all tastes. Walking There is a fantastic choice, including a petite randonnee which passes the door of the gite. It is a twenty mile circular walk encompassing the two main villages in the area, and is blessed with beautiful countryside and the most spectacular views of the Cantal mountain ranges. We will supply you with all the information needed to ensure you enjoy your walks to the full, as we have spent many a happy day traversing the counrty side. Cycling and Mountain Biking There is a mountain bike centre ten minutes drive from the gite, with numerous way marked trails. We have two bicycles at the gite that can be used for exploring the surrounding region.The roads are quiet and it is a very pleasant twenty minute cycl...
Getting around
As we are in the middle of one of the biggest national parks in France a car is essential for getting around, on the other hand there are plenty of beautiful walks to be undertaken straight from the door, walking maps are supplied along with a number of bikes free of charge for cycling around the nearby villages. The nearest station is 24km away in Issoire its 20 Minutes by train to the city of Clermont -Ferrand.
