“This has been really wonderful long week end. Richard is really pro active in the communication and that many weeks prior to this family week end. His neighbor and him prepared the house perfectly. Each room (6) is equiped with huge bathroom and a flat TV. Everything has been prepared as in a first class hotel (beds, fresh towels…)
The living room is gorgeous with a pool table, a darts board and a huge flat TV (with 2 satellites!) above a Godin fireplace. The kitchen got the same fireplace with everything you need to prepare a meal. Garden and swimming pool are lovely. It’s really lost in a wild Auvergne but you are only 10 minutes from Puy Guillaume if you need groceries. Anyway this has been a perfect moment in a beautiful renovated house.
Thanks Richard. Hope to come back.”
