At L'Hirondelle we were made to feel like personal guests of the owner, Jim Sharpe. Firstly he sent us a menu and asked for our choice for our first evening meal. He happily collected us from Issoire station, which turned out to be a round...More

About the neighbourhood
The Lavadoir Forest is simply amazing, man made it is a giant working forest. Each time you visit there is a new view, created almost magically eash year as a result of the tree harvest.
Sunrises and sunsets are wonderful, walks exhillarating and cycling is challenging,both road and off track.
The Route de Fromage wanders through the area and mushroom hunters search the forest daily and sell their finds to the many local Achats.
Watching above the Red Kites and Buzzards soar majestically whilst Wild Boar and Fallow Deer forage in the forest.
Wonderful local towns and villages host a mass of summer Fetes and are a true step back in time each one being noted for its local artesans and culture.
St Germaim l'Herm is the perfect base from which to enjoy the areas amazing beauty whilst baski...

How to get there
Ryanair fly to many accessable airports although none can be described as local. Trains run to Issoire from Paris and Nimes in the south whilst the motorway passes the foot of our mountain. guests can be collected from Issoire station at a nominal charge.
If travelling from Dieppe, Monet's wonderful garden at Giverny makes a wonderful stop off point whilst the beautiful cities of Chatres and Orleans never fail to delight. From the south a stop of at the Millau bridge is a must to appreciate its scale and beauty.
