Three of us stayed here for a fortnight. Wonderful host. The property was fairly new, clean and comfortable. Could do with some more hooks to hang things on. It’s rural setting is lovely and we really enjoyed our drinks and cheese outside on the deck in the evenings watching the sunset. Pontgibaud is quite close by and has everything you need, even walking distance to restaurants. There are boulangeries, chocolate shops, supermarkets and a very good butcher and a market every Thursday.
As a place to visit the volcanoes it was very convenient. visitors should be aware that linen is only provided if arranged with owner before arrival.
This is a renovated property with an idiosyncratic layout - basically in two different buildings connected by an interior, private corridor. The house was very clean and the private parking space was very welcome. The bedrooms were good size, but both faced on to the town square which made them noisy, even with windows closed. The bathroom was huge, but with a doorway that you had to bend down to pass through (under 5'6"). The kitchen had all sorts of fancy gadgets, but no lids for the pots. There was one small sofa that seated two - other seating was upright plastic chairs. There was an unexpected cleaning charge of 60 euros that was not mentioned in the original listing - and that we only learned of a few days before our arrival. On the plus side, the outdoor space would be lovely in warmer weather and Besse is a charming town that makes a very good center for local sightseeing.
