Holiday Rental House
Our old Auvergne farmhouse, converted into a holiday home, is located in the isolated town of Saint-Donat, away from the town center on a property with a pond. Saint Donat is a charming little village in the heart of Auvergne, in the Puy de Dôme, at the foot of the Sancy massif, an ideal place for holidays with family or friends, in a natural, preserved and authentic setting. In summer as in winter, there is no shortage of activities… downhill skiing, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, hiking, getting back into shape, heritage, visits, entertainment… The farmhouse is made up of two floors. On the ground floor, there is an equipped kitchen (fridge, freezer, coffee machine, kettle, toaster, microwave and gas stove), a lounge area, dining room dominated by its Cantou (Auvergne fireplace), hal...Our old Auvergne farmhouse, converted into a holiday home, is located in the isolated town of Saint-Donat, away from the town center on a property with a pond.

On the ground floor, there is an equipped kitchen (fridge, freezer, coffee machine, kettle, toaster, microwave and gas stove), a lounge area, dining room dominated by its Cantou (Auvergne fireplace), hall bathroom and WC. The upper floor has two back-to-back bedrooms served by a landing. The first bedroom consists of a double bed and the second of a double bed and a single bed or three single beds as required. Wifi is available throughout the house. The heating is central although a fire in the stove available will make your evenings all the more warm. An outdoor terrace with garden furniture is at your disposal as well as a barbecue for summer evenings. The land is planted with trees you can enjoy a sunset stroll around our pond and you have a private parking space on the property. In winter, the house is located 25 minutes from the Super Besse ski resort, 15 minutes from the more family-friendly Chastreix Sancy, or 35 minutes from the Mont Dore station, the location is therefore ideal for going to winter sports, relax, while enjoying nature without the hustle and bustle of the resorts. Cross-country skiing and snowshoeing are not to be outdone with two of the most important departures from the Massif Central, that of La Stèle and that of Pertuyzat both accessible in just 20 minutes. In case of low snowfall, a lot of other activities are possible (sled dog (with roller karts), walks and hikes, visit, heritage, caves, farms and of course cheese tasting, we are at the heart of the 'AOP Saint Nectaire! In summer, the immediate proximity of the Sancy massif offers a huge playground for hiking, horse riding, mountain biking with the highest point, at 1886m, the Puy de Sancy which will offer you a magnificent panorama on the glacial valleys and the sharp ridges as well as on the volcanic massifs of Cantal, the Chaine des Puys, Mézenc and on the Forez. From the house, three walks await you in order to discover the magnificent landscapes of Artense They will make you discover the Gour de Pierrot, on the Tarentaine river whose depth exceeds 7 meters or even from the top of the hill on which stands the statue of Our Lady of Fatima, a unique panorama e on Les Monts Dores (Sancy), the Cézallier mountains, La Haute Auvergne (Cantal), and Limousin. Activities around the water are also very present in the region with in particular many lakes and rivers which can be bathed or not! Lake Chambon is less than 30 minutes from the house and Lake Pavin (circular volcanic lake) less than 20 minutes! The Tour d'Auvergne also has a body of water with a supervised beach. In all seasons, the thermal towns of La Bourboule and Mont Dore located around 30 minutes away are worth a visit, and in particular the thermal baths of Mont Dore, ranked among the most beautiful in Europe. Regarding heritage, Saint-Donat also has a 12th century Romanesque church, vestiges of the Bernadines Abbey of La Vassin. This one, founded at the return of the 2nd Crusade (12th century) is located at the confluence of the Tarentaine and the Chaperouge stream. The church dates from the 12th century, only the original choir remains today. The nave dates from the 13th century, the side chapels from the 15th century. For history lovers, other vestiges of a past era are nearby, starting with the castle of Murol, a fortress of the Middle Ages located 30 minutes from the house. Hoping to welcome you soon, we are at your disposal for any questions.More

How to get there
Our farmhouse is relatively far from the nearest big city, you will necessarily need an independent means of transport (car or other). The nearest airport is Clermont-Ferrand. It will take you just over an hour to reach your rental. As far as the stations are concerned, Clermont-Ferrand also. The nearest station is La Bourboule, which is served by TER buses, however, no car rental on site.
