If, however, you are looking to try something a little more adventurous or exciting then we can certainly meet your requirements here too. Take a look at our activities page to get just a flavour of what is available, from swimming in mountain lakes, to flying like a bird from the top of the regions tallest peak. Just take a look at this view from our garden… (click for the big picture!)

The Gîte at La Verrerie is a traditional Auvergnate farm house which has been extensively renovated to create two self-contained homes, retaining many original features such as the exposed pine roof beams in most rooms. Each of the cottages can accomodate four people with a double and a twin bedroom. The cottages may be rented separately or together. There’s a large garden of some 3/4 acre, with several terraces of lawn, mature fruit trees and shrubs with fabulous views across the entire chain of puys from Puy de Dome in the north to Puy Sancy and Mont Dore and onwards to the Cantal. The garden includes barbecue and games areas (badminton and boules equipment is available), and there’s a large indoor playroom in the stable block which has a brand new table tennis table and a playstation. The swimming pool is at the far end of the garden and catches full sun from mid morning until sunset!The house seen from the garden - two comfortable gites with a large garden, pool and huge views, in the heart of the french Auvergne region.

The gite, show here as seen from half way down the garden, is just ten miles from the A75 autoroute at Issoire, and ten minutes drive from Sauxillanges, which has two small supermarkets and a bakery, yet is peaceful and remote from the hubbub of life. For those who need to stay in touch whilst on holiday, the gite has a broadband internet connection, local phone line, and excellent cellphone coverage. So, if you would like a self-catering holiday in this unexplored and breathtakingly beautiful region of France, then book with us – you will not be disappointed.
