La Verrerie ref : 6700041

View of the cottages from half way down the garden.

Reference 6700041 Site Sleeps 8 Over 2 Properties

La Verrerie is a small hamlet about a mile from the village centre of Egliseneuve-des-Liards. The house is a traditional Auvergne farmhouse converted to provide two comfortable gites in addition to a range of other buildings. The two gites share a garden of nearly an acre, a stable block which is now a games room, and a pool area.

The two gites can be rented individually or together.

The garden affords stunning  views across 60+ miles to the chaine of puys, on a clear day you an see the top of Puy Sancy and Puy de Dome, and on a day with just a few clounds in just the right places, the sunsets are spectacular!

The house is in a quiet country location half way up a mountain with no passing traffic save the cows from the nearby farm and the occasional tractor. Even aircraft passing overhead are rare. But you’re only ten minutes drive from the town of Sauxillanges, which has two small supermarkets and a Michelin listed restaurant! And only twenty minutes drive from the Motorway, which will take you all the way to the ferry.
