Charming property with very friendly owners
Blomard was an ideal location for us to explore the Allier region and to make trips south to the Monts Dore and the Puy de Dôme. The house is really lovely, has been thoughtfully furnished and decorated, and is set in a good sized garden with plenty of room for games. The nearby lake at Lapeyrouse is ideal for cooling down and worth the 10/15 minute drive for a daily swim.
Merci mille fous pour votre gentille et élogieuse appréciation.
Heureux aussi de vous avoir rencontrés.

We have spent 2 weeks in this wonderful charming house and we loved everything about it! The house itself is beautifully decorated with a lot of thought and character. It is generously equipped and is simply pleasant to spend time in.
The garden enclose is spacious and has few sitting areas scattered around and plenty of furniture. We enjoyed dining outside as the weather was just perfect most of the time. The surrounding is rural and very peaceful. Cows were looking at us from the field across the road. In the nearby town of Monmarault there is everything one needs in terms of food shopping and internet.
There is plenty to do around. Around 30 mins from there there is an adventure park where you can do kayaking, high ropes forest cycling and more. The pictorial village of Herrison is not to be missed and if you are interested in history, there are plenty of chateaux and fortresses around to explore.
Finally, the owners are lovely, helpful and welcoming.
We will surly come back!!!
We spent a week in this delightful house in Blomard. It is a beautiful cottage with great atmosphere. We stayed there with 2 couples and a dog, and we really had a good time. There was a fireplace, a large living, 2 seperate bathrooms and toilets and a very large garden. The owners are the sweetest people you can ever imagine. The were very helpful, and fun to talk to. They invited us over for one night and we even got home made French apple-pie and jam and gelee from the lady of the house. They were so kind. The place Blomard is very small, but nearby is Mont Marrault which has a mini-Carrevour, a bakery and a very nice snack-bar where you can have great Crock-Madames! You won't have to eat anything else after that! And the owner is a sweet man. From the cottage you can do good walking, and see all kind of cities too. We went to Clermont-Ferrand, Moulins, Vichy and, really charming: Charroux.The weather could have been better in our week, but the house is cosy so you'll have a good time, even when the sun doesn't shine all the time.
Thanks again for your nice and so prompt comments.
We were also so pleased to meet you and hope to hear of you in the future..
Not so lucky with the weather but we try to make the cottage warm and attractive enough as our own home to feel at ease anyway.
The countryside was nevertheless very beautiful with all the spring's greens/trees' flowers makes the landscape amazing even when the storm is coming.
It is true that food can be excellent and not very expensive all around.
The outside activities are reduced versus summer period,(except walking, and riding) but
Culture is possible in the tree closed towns with very different offers.
Charming cottage, great for dogs & walking
We spent 2 weeks at the cottage with our 2 dogs in the spring and loved it. Lots of half day walks from the door or a short drive away (borrow or buy the book of 33 walks for Montmarault), lovely big enclosed garden that catches the sun all day, and a big village just 5 mins drive with a bakery, mini-Carrefour and fabulous restaurant (the Hotel de France). Easy access off the motorway from Paris (it's several miles away, so you don't hear it at all), and beautiful rolling countryside all around. Don't miss the brocantes/car boots at the weekends and on bank holidays, they're great fun and you never know what treasures you'll find. The cottage is semi-detached, but it feels private as the owners (a very welcoming and helpful couple) live in Paris and only use next door as an occasional weekend place. It's beautifully decorated in a "Country Living" rustic chic style, and there's a large open fire place as well as log burner. Perfect for a cosy rural retreat as a couple, with friends or as a family.
Montluçon, Vichy und Clermont-Ferrand sind sehr schöne Städte mit einem historischen Stadtkern und unbedingt sehenswert. Die Chaîne des Puys sind noch etwas entfernt und man hat noch den Anfahrtsweg, aber auf jeden Fall empfehlenswert.
Dieses Haus ist mit viel Liebe renoviert und hat einfach Charme. Das Bett im Erdgeschoß hat eine gute Matratze auf der man gut schlafen kann. Wir haben uns sehr wohl und sehr gut betreut gefühlt! Der Garten ist sehr groß und es ist traumhaft ruhig.
Merci mille fois pour avoir pris le temps d’écrire une appréciation.
Excellentes vacances août 2019
Nous avons passé une excellente semaine de vacances en famille. La maison est très agréable, très bien décorée et bien équipée. Le jardin est très grand, parfait avec des enfants. Le calme de la campagne est très plaisant et il y a de nombreuses visites à faire aux alentours pour les petits comme pour les grands. On recommande ! Nous reviendrons
Merci mille fois pour votre charmant mot et si vite.
J'espere que le voyage s'est bien passe et que les enfants vont bien s'amuser a la mer.
Merci encore d'avoir tout laisse nickel.
En esperant vous retrouver dans quelques annees a nouveau aux Retats.
Bonne reprise pour votre epoux. Je suppose que vous vous occupez encore quelque semaines de Constance.
