This pretty 3-bed house is set in amongst the dramatic countryside of the Allier gorge in the Massif Central. The property has a lovely pool, large barn, courtyard garden and is within walking distance of shops, restaurants, bars, cafés and a weekly market. The property also has an excellent letting track record.
The property has been fully renovated and the living area is open-plan and airy. The accommodation is set out over 3 floors and the layout is as follows:
Living room (with wood-burning stove)
En suite bathroom and WC
The stone-walled, south-facing garden court is a peaceful hideaway, perfect for sun-bathing and al-fresco dining. There is an 8 x 4m, 1.2m deep, heated swimming pool for spring through autumn. There is also a barn (currently used for storage) as well as a built-in BBQ. There is off-road, private parking.
The property is located 200 yards from the delightful village of Langeac, which is located at the mouth of the stunning Allier Gorge. Langeac boasts wonderful cafés, terrace bars, restaurants, locally sourced food shops and an excellent twice-weekly market (Tuesday and Thursday).
Supermarkets are 5 minutes by car or 20 minutes on foot. In July there are summer festivals, including "Les Belles Jours", when 18th century costumes fill the streets for dancing, camp fires, games, traditional food and drink and a torchlit parade to finish the weekend.
Langeac is also a hub for lots of outdoor activities. In summer, the forests, mountains and Allier river gorge burst with outdoor enthusiasts. The white-water rafting is said to be the best in France! Kayaks, canoes, mountain bikes and horses can all be rented locally.
In the winter, cross country skiing can be found as near as Jax (a 20 minute drive), with grander slopes just over an hour away at Le Lioran and Super Besse. The nearby historic towns of Lavadieu, Blesle, Brioude and Le Puy en Velay offer year-round delights.
Langeac is about 1 hour south of Clermont Ferrand by car, 7 hours from the channel ports of Le Havre and Dieppe and 8 hours from Calais. The nearest airport is Clermont Ferrand, served by KLM/Air France and Flybe from airports across the UK. Lyon airport (2.5 hours drive) has regular flights with easyJet, Ryanair and British Airways. Trains come to Clerrmont Ferrand from Pairs or to Le Puy via Lyon, and car hire is readily available.
