Description of La Maison de Réflexion Gite :

Our cottage, La Maison de Réflexion was converted from an old forge in which the cart wheels and hand tools were manufactured. It is decorated and furnished to a high standard and has received 3-star by the new French national tourism authority whose representative, at the conclusion of the evaluation visit, very kindly told us that it was a wonderful start his Monday morning!
The accommodation, which is on one level, has a wood stove and electric radiators and is therefore suitable for renting all year. It can accommodate up to four adults and consists of two bedrooms, one double and one twin-bedded, a living/dining room with integral TV (French channels only), DVD and CD players, free WiFi access and a good-sized shower room with toilet and hairdryer. A cot and high chair are also available on request.
The kitchen is well equipped with pots and pans, cutlery and crockery, oven, hob, microwave, fridge / freezer, dishwasher, iron and ironing board. A clothes washing service is also available.
The property has its own enclosed, lawned garden, south-facing, suitable for children and dogs with a beautiful view of the surrounding countryside and is equipped with garden furniture and barbecue - ideal for enjoying the views and beautiful sunsets on summer evenings.
Our goal is to have the gîte ready for you from 15:00 on the day of arrival. You are welcome to contact us by telephone on the day to see if it will be ready sooner.

La Maison de Réflexion is a "No Smoking" gîte.

Pitelet is a typical and peaceful village of the region. It is situated at 750 metres in the beautiful hills of the wooded mountains aboveThiers and on the edge of the Livradois Forez Regional Park .
St Victor Montvianeix is a large commune, but with only 6 people per square kilometre, the 300 miles of pathways are a delight to explore on foot or by bike (to rent). And if you are an avid bird watcher, we have a real diversity of species here.
Our nearest town, Thiers, has been the capital of French cutlery making for six centuries. A visit to the museum, the workshop to make your own pocket knife and the numerous shops bear witness.
For a panoramic view of the department take the new funicular railway to the summit of the Puy de Dôme. At 1,500 metres the highest of the chain of volcanoes is currently fighting for the recognition of UNESCO. Or you can climb to the top on foot if you like. The views are spectacular.
Clermont Ferrand is the nearest big city and the capital of the department, with its black cathedral built in volcanic stone as well as being the home of Michelin.
And in addition there is the charming town of Vichy, famous for its water and restorative treatments.

Our region has five delicious AOP cheeses and several distinctive wines, the best known of which are the AOC wines of St Pourçain. And then there is our ham, sausisse de choux, aligot, truffade...
