“Unforgettable location / beautiful big old house with an air of grandeur”
Reviewed 2 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

person found this review helpful

We had a great holiday - Le Puy is full of unique monuments, great cafes and shops, nearby fortress towns and chateaus and giant lakes to swim in; hardly anyone speaks English but that adds to the charm. The property is quite large, 4 huge bedrooms and lots of living space indoors and out. The owner is very charming and helpful and the place was really clean and tidy and very French. There are bicycles you can borrow for exploring but the hills are quite steep so you need to be a proficient cyclist. There is a really good swimming complex called La Vague in the town which is worth seeing.

Some points to note:
The house is up a very very steep hill and accessed by huge gates which you have to lock and unlock when you go out.
it's quite tricky to find and this would have been a good thing to include in the joining instructions
There is an expensive extra cost of 17 euros per person for towels and linen, for which you get the bare essentials AND have to make your own bed! Different to Britain.
And there is the tourism tax, but that is nothing to do with the property.

On the whole, a delightful place to stay, very peaceful and comfortable with unrivalled views. You will be off the beaten track

Dear Helen,
Thank for your opinion.
Yes, it is better to shut the garden gate at night, to feel secure.
In France, if you book one bedroom for one or two nights, linen and towels are included in the price; and the bed is made.
But if you book all a house for one week or more, generally the linen and towels are not included; or the rent is more expensive.
I am very happy you and your children enjoyed your holidays in my property, and you appreciated the town, the district and specialy the wonderful view, from my house.

“Lovey location and well equiped home.”
Reviewed 31 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Wonderful location, Great garden for children. House well equipped. We arrived at 6pm and were greeted with a smile and shown around the house. There were several push bikes for us to use and every kitchen appliance you could think of in the kitchen. Nice secure gates, so the whole garden is safe to leave children playing in. Swings, play structure and little play house also there. We had a four year old who loved it there. Will be going back.

Merci beaucoup, chère Madame et cher Monsieur, pour votre avis très élogieux!
Quant à " la grande montée"...je n'y peux rien !,Mais elle permet une vue magnifique , de la maison, sur la ville du Puy et en particulier sur le quartier historique: Rocher Corneille et cathédrale ! Vue féerique en particulier, de nuit, durant l'été...

Chère Madame et cher Monsieur,
Merci beaucoup pour votre appréciation.
Il est vrai que la maison est très bien située : la vue sur le Puy-en-Velay est exceptionnelle et devient féerique le soir, quand les divers monuments sont illuminés.
Par ailleurs, bien qu'étant située tout près du centre-ville, elle est extrêmement calme et se promener dans le parc est très reposant.
Enfin, grâce aux murs qui l'entourent, les enfants peuvent y jouer en toute sécurité.
Je serai très heureuse de vous recevoir une nouvelle fois, dès que vous pourrez revenir.
A très bientôt, j'espère.
