Trip Advisor is a very useful tool for grabbing general information or looking at cheap flights to the region.

Kitchen / Living Room

The living room is gorgeous authentic space complete with a pool table, a darts board and a huge flat TV above a Godin fireplace.

The kitchen is a beautiful old open-plan area with enough modern equipment to allow any cook to get into the spirit of french gastronomy. The fireplace is stocked with everything you need to prepare a meal.
It really is an idyllic place to relax and switch off, it’s really lost in the wild of the Auvergne but you are only 10 minutes from Puy Guillaume (if you need more groceries).

Nearby places of interest

The Auvergne is home to some of the most beautiful villages in France:

Charroux is a fortified renaissance village. It’s main attractions are wine making and leather tanning. The village has actually developed over the years in around the centre-most square and the Saint Jean Baptiste Church (complete with magnificent bell towers over the scene).

Vichy is a 40 minute drive away and has a plethora of good restaurants, bars and cultural attractions (such as the Opera house). Vichy is also home to a fantastic golf course (the Circuit Or) with two courses very worth their green fee.

Clermont-Ferrand is about an hours drive away from Saint-Victor-Montvianeix, and is one of the larger cities in the area. Worth checking out Le puy de Dôme – a mythical volcano, listed as a “Grand Site de France”, the Puy de Dôme is located a stone’s throw from the city.

Relax by the Pool

One of the nicest draws about this farmhouse conversion is the fantastic grounds. In the hot Summer heat there is nothing more relaxing than getting into a good book by the pool. Early morning dips are a must do, and similarly after a long day out exploring the Auvergne countryside, the pool really comes into its own. Perfect for entertaining the family for hours on end!

Fitted with it’s own collapsable cover, the pool stays greenhouse warm throughout the colder months of the year.
