This is your property ?


The house is of typical Auvergnat construction, with thick walls to keep it cool in the summer, and completely restored to add modern comfort to ancient charm. Outside the garden offers a wonderful view over the castle, and from here it is only a very short walk to the banks of the Doulon river, a beautiful spot where you can paddle - it's even deep enough in some parts to swim.On the ground floor of the house is a large living \ dining area with TV and video, a hi-fi, comfortable sofa and chairs, and a wood burning stove built into the stone fireplace. There is a well equipped kitchen with dual-fuel cooker, fridge and freezer. Off the kitchen is a bathroom with shower cubicle, and a washing machine, and also a separate toilet.On the first floor are two very large bedrooms. The main room has a king size bed, with 2 windows - one overlooking the castle and the other where the morning sun comes in! The other room has 2 large single beds with plenty of room for another single bed to be added if needed.Outside, the L-shaped garden is south-west facing and gets the sun almost all day. Sun loungers and table and chairs are provided, along with a barbecue for guests to use.

Location & area

Closeby there are stunning villages to explore: Lavaudieu (officially classified as one of France's most beautiful villages), Chaise-Dieu with it's music festival, and the old city of Le Puy en Velay with it's buildings set atop the lava cores of ancient volcanoes. Still on the volcanic theme, the Auvergne's major tourist attraction, Vulcania, is about an hour's drive away and close to Clermont Ferrand.

There are no shops in the village but the bread van does come twice a week! If you can't wait that long, small amounts of groceries can be brought in Domeyrat (3kms), the nearest supermarket is in the small town of Paulhaguet (7kms). More choice and larger shops can be found in the lovely town of Brioude (20kms).

Vals le Chastel is approximately 30 km from junction 20 of the A75 autoroute, almost 1 hour south of Clermont Ferrand. Vals is 2 hours from Rodez, which is served by Ryanair from Stansted. Most major hire car companies serve Rodez airport but must be booked in advance. As with some of the restaurants in the area, if there are no reservations the office may not be open!

It is also approximately 8 hours drive from Calais. This makes it easily drivable in a day from anywhere in south-east England.
