House overview - owner's description

Imagine a hidden paradise in the heart of the French countryside, where life is filled with simple pleasures: delicious food, fine wines and a secluded garden overlooking the valley and beautiful village. Just a few hours south of Paris, this holiday rental is a true idyllic retreat, located in a village that is nestled in a lush green valley, a "presqu'ile" or peninsula with the river running through it. This rural part of France encourages a pace of life that allows for dreaming, relaxing and reconnecting with yourself and with others. Life flows with the rhythm of the days, eddies around meals, and pools deep and clear during late-night conversations under the brilliant stars. It’s a place to think and breathe.

Reve de Riviere is a very roomy and ancient house that has been renovated to perserve its charm... it has seven bedrooms and two bathrooms, a very spacious living room and kitchen. It is quite comfortable for several families to stay together.. The house has been constructed against a cliff so as you walk up the stairs you will find a garden... with a courtyard with garden furniture and BBQ.

As you open the windows you'll gaze out over the mountains and sunshine. Before going out, the whole family can easily have breakfast in the large bright kitchen. The evening you can play games in the kitchen while other people in the living-room look at TV or read... There is a wood burning stove in the kitchen and living room which creates a cosy atmosphere in the spring and fall months. There are also electric heaters in the bedrooms. From the house you can Mountain bike and walk everywhere around: there are many hiking trails and paths (marked or not) from the holiday cottage. Go birdwatching in thematic walks with the Maison des Oiseaux just across the bridge.
There are also many villages and towns of interest like Chilhac, Lavaudieu, Chanteuges, St Arcons d'Allier... in the area, many of which have shops, restaurants and outdoor markets.

The general region is called the Auvergne; a large, mountainous area of central France. Lavoute Chilhac is about halfway between two large cities, Clermont-Ferrand and Le Puy en Velay (a stop on the pilgrimage route to Santiago di Compostella), and the nearest towns are Brioude and Langeac . The Mediterranean is 2.5 hours by car (Montpellier), and Paris is 4.5 hours by train. There are lots of things to see and do: wine-tasting, buying fresh produce at the outdoor markets, shopping for antiques at local brocante markets, visiting châteaux (Chavaniac Lafayette) & medieval churches (La Chaise Dieu), walking & biking in the beautiful countryside, practising French, savouring local specialities, and especially relaxing with a glass of wine in the secluded garden, delighting in the beautiful view.
