This farm offers the basis for a wonderful holiday between its ancient walls, sunny terraces and lovely pool. The property is surrounded by unspoilt nature, with splendid panoramas, not far from the idyllic French village Lavoine (5km) and in a region with many recreational and cultural evenementen.Op the total 3.5-hectare estate is a modern pool awaits you where the owners and their children sometimes use. Each cottage has a private terrace and behind the house with garden furniture and BBQ. The rear cottage sleeps four people and has a spacious kitchen with stove atmosphere. On the landing of the first floor you will find a cozy TV / sitting area with sofa and chairs. On this floor there are two bedrooms. The front cottage sleeps eight people and has a spacious kitchen with adjoining cozy living room with sfeerkachel.Op the first floor there are five bedrooms, two with a double bed, two with a single bed and the last bedroom with two single beds. There is also a cot available and if desired, also a chair be requested. Take a seat on one of the "two" away "terraces of the house and enjoy the beautiful view.

In the immediate vicinity of these cottages are many hiking and mountain biking (VTT)possibilities. The distances vary from 2 to 16 km. At 2 km from the "gîte" mountain bikes can be rented.
During a walk you could encounter wild boar, roe deer, badgers, squirrels, stoats and foxes. In the hilly, wooded landscape, flow numerous creeks and rivers. Also in the area you find many old villages and deserted hamlets.
Although the environment is ideally suited for nature lovers, there is also a cultural sphere of things to do, such as the beautiful, town Vichy, on the Allier river, with it'smedicinal springs, opera and promenade. Definitely worth a visit.
Opposite the cottage is the Saint Vincent Rocher, which can be climbed .
At 17 km away is Le Mayet de Montagne, whit it's Monday morning market. Many stalls, featuring cheese, herbs, chicken, wine, clothing, etc. The market is also the meeting place for people from the area. A visit to the basket museum is well worth it.
Also good are the waterfalls of Piss Rotten, which are located in a forest environment untouched by humans. Nearby, Chatel Montagne, with her old Roman church, is well worth a visit. Beside the church is a museum with a permanent exhibition on the construction of the church. The museum also has changing exhibitions of regional artists. In Châtel itself live and work a few artists, such as glassblowers.
From the waterfalls of Pisserotte one is not far from the caves of the Côte Roannaise. Here delicious red, white and rosé wine scan be tasted.
One obtains a a beautiful view from Chateau d'Urfe, a ruin, situated near the town Champoly. Here one is offered a magnificent view of the area with possibilities to see Mont Blanc.( 150 kilometers away ) by claer weather.
In Lavoine is the museum of Lumberjacks and "clocks," : with one clock driven by a water source. The water leaves a wooden paddle by moving and flashing, where wooden balls are rolling over, which indicate the time.
Nearby are 3 good restaurants, where good regional dishes can be eaten, for relatively modest prices.
Some tourist tips:
Cusset: Subterranean, medieval fortifications.
Lapalisse: To visit the castle and the theme park le PAL
Thiers: Knives Town.
St. Clement: Plan d'eau with canoe and surfboard rental.
St-Remy-sur-Durolle (towards Thiers) also has a large plan d'eau.
Arronnes: Romanesque church.
St-Haon-le-Vieux: Restored Medieval town. Good to combine with the Côte Roannaise!

    “We had a nice week in Lavoine. The two gites both rented because we were eleven, but we had the space well. T are beautiful houses and the pool is lovely! We did enjoy it.

    Disadvantage we found the enormous distance to the civilized world. T was a half hour drive to the nearest supermarche and an hour to the city.” The customer review has been automatically translated from Dutch. Back to the original language

    “We have very much to our liking in this house. Since we had rented both gites, we had a lot of living space at our disposal and maximum privacy. Both gites look neat and are very well equipped. R nThe landlords (fam. Dekker) were very hospitable and very service oriented. R nJan and Annemien Kuijpers” The customer review has been automatically translated from Dutch.

    “We had a great week together with our children in these two houses that actually belong together. We were 8 adults and 4 children. and had two houses at their disposal, one lying at the pool (folding doors) and one next to it. That worked out well, those without children could sleep in the small house.

    A wonderfully quiet place, with beautiful views. Possibility for fires, lake for fishing, trampoline for the children.

    The photos we had seen in advance did not show up as well as reality, so we recommend to adjust the photos.

    Too bad we had to pay € 4.00 when one of the children had surrendered and we asked if we could do a laundry with the managers.

    Furthermore TOP!” The customer review has been automatically translated from Dutch. Back to the original language

    “Our holiday in the beautiful house in the Auvergne started with a pleasant reception by Hans and Anita. We have rented all 2 gites for 2 weeks with our friends (2 families of 5 people). The largest house is spacious enough for 8 people and the small gite can be occupied by 4 people. We lived during the day mainly in the largest house, and of course in the great spacious garden with swimming pool. If you were tired of the pool you could swim in a different part of the garden in the swimming / fish pond.

    The owners Hans and Anita are very hospitable, and were always there for us.
