We spent two weeks at this haven of peace and tranquility in the Cantal. From our day of arrival until our departure Christian and Brigitte made every effort to ensure our holiday was perfect. Our room was spacious, immaculately clean and furnished and, like the rest of this beautiful old farmhouse, full of charm and character. Breakfasts were delicious with mostly homemade ingredients and on good weather days, served on the terrace with a magnificent view down the valley. After breakfast Christian and Brigitte would supply us with maps for walking and and places of interest to visit.
In the evenings we gathered in the huge lounge in front of a log fire for aperitifs—a choice from about ten bottles -and then sat down for a long leisurely dinner with different regional dishes each day complete with wine. Despite our limited French, this was a great social and fun occasion.
Christian and Brigitte are to be congratulated for being such superb hosts and providing such excellent service.
We have already booked for next year!
