The house

  • Quiet, rural area

In a secluded spot, where you can only reach the house via a stone staircase and a short forest path, you will find this very private two-person house with a view of a disused railway bridge.

Downstairs is the living area with a kitchen with a gas hob and a dishwasher, a kitchen table, a sitting area and a shower room with a toilet. Upstairs is the sleeping area and there is space for suitcases, for example. From the window there is a beautiful view of the railway bridge, which is illuminated during the summer months. There is no tv. in the house, but there is a stereo and wifi.

The charming cottage is simple, but lovingly made and decorated, as you can see from the photos, for example, the handmade kitchen, made from locally sawn wood. The upper floor is half open, which makes it feel spacious inside, despite the limited space. And under the blue ceiling painted with a few clouds, the weather is always nice.

Around the house is a small private yard, where you sit very privately with a first-class view of the railway bridge. There is also a barbecue area.

The village of Les Ancizes is a 10-minute drive away and has a supermarket, restaurants, bar, petrol station, bank, tabac/presse, tourist office and other shops. In the surrounding villages there are weekly markets and brocantes are often organised. Some of the sights in the area: The volcanic mountains La Chaine des Puys, Puy de Dôme, Gorges of the river La Sioule (swimming, canoeing, fishing), the meander of Queuille, the crater lake Le Gour de Tarzenat, Clermont Ferrand.

Because the house is only accessible via a short forest path from the road, it is not suitable for people with reduced mobility.

5 minutes drive from the village of Les Ancizes with 2 supermarkets, weekly market, office de tourisme, tabac etc. 10 minutes from swimming water. A 20 minute drive from the house is a canoe centre and several restaurants. Canoeing is wonderful on the river that winds through the landscape along steep mountain sides and castles. This is also a wonderful region for hiking and enjoying the overwhelming Auvergne landscape. This region is known for its many types of cheese (e.g., the Saint Nectaire and the Bleu d'Auvergne) and also for the "Chaine des Puys", a long series of volcanic mountains that was recently nominated for the Unesco World Heritage list. The most famous volcanic mountain of this series is the 1465-metre high Puy de Dôme from where there is a fantastic view over the region.

    Dit vakantie huis heeft om te beginnen een werkelijk prachtige ligging. Via een trap en over een bospad omhoog kom je uit bij een open plek met daarop dit huis.
    Het uitzicht is werkelijk spectaculair!
    De rust en de privacy is ongeëvenaard.
    Vanwege de ligging is het een komen en gaan van vogels ( waaronder een uil), kleine hagedissen de huiskatten maar ook van spinnen , mieren en slakken.. en zand.
    Dit hoort ook bij deze plek, dat kan ook bijna niet anders maar daar moet je wel rekening mee houden!
    De wasmachine staat overigens in de wasruimte bij het verderop gelegen blauwe huisje en niet zoals vermeld in dit vakantiehuis zelf
    Wil je echt gaan voor rust, stilte en natuur dan zit je hier prima.

    Eerlijkheid gebied wel te zeggen dat het huis aan een opknap- en degelijke poetsbeurt toe is

    Nous avons apprécié le séjour chez Guido. Le gîte est à la bonne taille pour 2 personnes, et il y a tout le nécessaire pour y séjourner confortablement. L'emplacement est très agréable, avec la vue sur le viaduc. Le fait d'être en hauteur de la vallée fait remonter le bruit des voitures et autres bruits, ce qui rend l'emplacement pas complètement calme. Les promenades juste au dessus du gîte sont très propices au calme et à la méditation.
    Nous avons été étonnés du nombre de marches à monter, mais pas effrayer pour autant.
    Merci à Guido pour son accueil et sa disponibilité.

Restaurants, food & wine

The Auvergne is not a wine region, but it does excel in the production of cheeses. Amongst others, Bleu d'Auvergne, Saint Nectaire, Cantal and Salers come from here. When you eat in one of the restaurants in the area, along the river, or in a village, you cannot miss the cheeseboard. In every village there is during the summer season a market, a brocante or a vide-greniers.


Along the river La Sioule, there are many activities to do, such as canoeing, but there are also mountain bike trails. Furthermore, there are castles, markets, restaurants with terraces, cheese makers to visit and a bakery mill. A little further away, you can visit cities like Clermont-Ferrand and the spring water city of Vichy, as well as numerous medieval villages and towns.
