Wat een heerlijke plek om volledig tot rust te komen! De advertentie doet volledig recht aan hetgeen we hebben aangetroffen, zo in de nabijheid van het gezellige stadje Espalion. Op zoek naar rust en de Franse gezelligheid met een wijntje en een stokbroodje zijn we geen moment teleurgesteld. Tel daar nog de prettige persoonlijke ontvangst van mrs.Johnson bij op en je hebt de garantie van een geweldige vakantie. Een absolute aanrader!

We had a week with lots of sunshine and during the day no rain! This gave us the opportunity for long walks through the beautiful countryside. Started at Estaing (2x), St.Com D’Olt and Sainte Eulalie D’Olt, places you have to visit. We also made some trips by car in the Aubrac area and Cantal, impressif and the nature at best. Laguiole and visit the factory of knives, the monestary of Bonneval where they make chocolate, Espalion the local museum and the bakery for bread which is far much better than de supermarket. Ok, this is a small insight which can be done at this loveley place. Now the house and its surroundings. We found the house loveley and spacious with the terrace overlooking the valley and the setting sun. Little noise of traffic and the owner let you be on your own. Sometimes you hear the radio or tv but nothing to complain about. The bed and stuff are comfortabel and clean, the bathroom had all you need however a little update would not harm. The woodburner is cosy but has a will of its own and to mine opinion a chimneycleaning would be nice. Parking your car is no problem but you have to be preperred for a challenge to carry your luggage uphill, elderly or disabled guests can have a problem with that. Also we found the cuttlery of a quality we did not expect in such a comfortabel gite. So we went to the supermarket and bought for small money some nice coulored set of knives, forks and spoons. Buying the top rated Laguiole set was a little to much ha ha.
Anyway overall a pretty confortable house with a nice balance between price and quality and a friendly and charming owner! A place to visit again and to discover more surprising gems hidden in the green valleys which you will find in all directions. Many thanks to Jane to rent her house to us for this wonderful week in which we did celebrate our 38th wedding anniversary !

Comment from Mrs Jane Johnson

Thank you very much for your review, I am happy to know of any problems there may be , so that all can be remedied, All the things you mentioned will be sorted, and new cutlery ,as you suggested. The bathroom had already been arranged with the workmen, which I should have mentioned , as it was not possible until the end of the season to have the work done. It was good to know that you had an enjoyable holiday here in the Gite, and in this beautiful area of France. perhaps I may have the pleasure of seeing you again

We - gezin met vier kinderen in de leeftijd van 5 tot 13 - hebben een prima week gehad in deze gite. Goede bedden, ruim terras, mooie tuin en van alle gemakken voorzien. In de omgeving is genoeg te doen. Rivier de Lot om in te spelen op een paar minuten lopen, groot zwemmeer Lac de Galens op drie kwartier rijden. Espalion - heel dichtbij - en Estaing - paar kilometer verderop - zijn leuke stadjes om een middag door te brengen en lekker te lunchen. Eigenaresse Jane reageerde snel op onze mails na de boeking en handelde alle administratieve zaken goed af. Zelf bewoont ze een een deel van het jaar ander deel van het grote pand, maar is er alleen als je haar nodig hebt. Privacy gewaarborgd dus :-)

Een aanrader voor natuurliefhebbers en rustzoekers. De gîte is van alle gemakken voorzien en heeft riante kamers. Het uitzicht vanaf het terras, waar het heerlijk vertoeven is, is fantastisch. Rames ligt vlakbij Espalion, een klein stadje waar verder alles is te vinden. Bovendien ligt het aan de pelgrimsroute naar Santiago de Compestella. Wij hebben vanaf het nabij gelegen St. Pierre een stukje van deze schitterende route gelopen, tot Estaing (ook een aanrader). Kortom, een heerlijke vakantie gehad.

Prima locatie: de woning is comfortabel, goed ingericht, ruim en gezellig. Het terras met uitzicht is prettig. De omgeving is prachtig, het dorpje gezellig. Er is voldoende te doen in de omgeving. De ontvangst was gastvrij.
