Holiday home la Virade


Detached, 100-year-old farmhouse, suitable for 6 people, situated in a beautiful and sunny location on a side road that turns into a forest path from the gorges de la Sioule. Beautiful views of the gorges and you can hear the river flowing, where you can fish, swim and kayak, less than 300 meters from the house.

Beautiful sunny terrace where you can completely relax and enjoy the silence, the sounds of nature and where you can spend a wonderful time together.

Garden table, garden chairs, parasol and a barbeque, 100% enjoy while the children can play safely. There is enough space to park the car safely.

Pets are also very welcome but only on the ground floor.

If it is too quiet, no worries, because at a distance of 800 meters you will already find the first restaurant (Le beau site), where Flemish are the managers. At 3 km you can rent electric mountain bikes, kayak and also very nice food and drinks. At 5 km the village of Menat, where you have the bakery and a small supermarket, at 7 km the village of Servant, with bakery and supermarket. There is also a large swimming pond with drinking and eating facilities.

If all of this appeals to you, we would like to welcome you to our house. We have already experienced wonderful, fun and warm moments with our family. Our house has a large living and dining room and a beautiful open kitchen that was completely renovated in 2018. There is a bathroom and a separate toilet, ground floor and two bedrooms on the first floor.

Additional information

Holiday home la Virade is located in the Combrailles, in the department of Puy de Dôme, province of Auvergne, northwest of the capital Clermont-Ferrand. It is the region of the wide landscapes, hills, lakes, mountains, forests, pure air and real peace and quiet. The Auvergne comprises the largest volcanic area in Europe, two regional nature parks, more than 500 Romanesque churches, some 50 castles to be visited and various towns with thermal baths. The Combrailles offers deciduous and pine forests, winding rivers, streams, picturesque villages and characteristic farms. The Sioule River has eroded the gorges to great depths and formed beautiful meanders. The 450 ha large reservoir 'Les Fades Besserve' is an extension of the Sioule. The Combrailles is located on the edge of the 'Parc Régional Naturel des Volcans d'Auvergne' with some eighty old volcanoes, of which the Puy de Dôme is the most impressive. Here is also the impressive Vulcania theme park. In addition to tranquility, the region offers numerous opportunities for active vacations, such as horse riding, canoeing, kayaking, hiking, cycling, mountain biking, swimming, [fly] fishing for trout in the Sioule river, parapenting, hang-gliding of the Puy de Dôme, ULM- flying (ultra light) and in winter skiing or cross-country skiing in the mountains of the Massive Central (1800 m).
