I will be around for most of the summer, do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or problems and I will try my best to answer/ solve them. I can supply walking maps, and suggestions for activities such as hiking and walking routes, kayaking and horse riding. There are also a number of bikes available (4) free of charge for cycling around the area, but bring your own helmet. The keys will be in the door when you arrive.

About the neighborhood
There is a host of outdoor activities in the area to suit all tastes. Walking - there is a fantastic choice including a petite randonnée which passes the door of the gite , it’s a twenty milefigure of eight walk which can be done over in two separate ten mile loops and takes in the two main villages in the area, it is blessed with beautiful country side and the most spectacular views of the Cantal mountain ranges on the other side of the valley. I can supply you with all the information needed to ensure you enjoy your walks to the full as myself and my wife Frances have spent many a happy day walking the routes.
Getting around
As we are in the middle of one of the largest 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 (4) free of charge for cycling around the nearby countryside and villages. The nearest railway station is 24km away in the town of Issoire , it’s a 20 minutes by train to the city of Clermont - Ferrand.
