Property description
A 19th century, renovated farmstead in front of its small island on the banks of the Loire, near to a lively village in South Auvergne - ref 270187
In the south of the Auvergne region, amongst the landscapes of the French department of Haute-Loire formed by a succession of verdant grasslands, volcanic hills, plateaux, wild gorges and rivers. The entire region has the benefit of large amounts of sunlight. The river Loire, which runs alongside the property, flows for a hundred or so kilometres from its nearby source on Mount-Gerbier-de-Jonc in the French department of Ardèche. This farmstead stands at a distance from a village where a weekly market selling local produce is held. A fair selling organic products takes place once a year.
This property is some thirty minutes from Puy-en-Velay, a town renowned for its cultural events.
About forty minutes from an airport with flights to Paris-Orly and roughly an hour from a TGV train station.
A country lane crosses the woods for several hundred metres before reaching the banks of the river Loire, where the property suddenly comes into view amongst pasturelands surrounded by wooded hills; a peaceful and remote site. The land, extending over approx. 8,000 m², slopes down to the riverside. The presence of a small island makes the place particularly enchanting, creating a complete change of scenery.

The house

Its main, long building, adjoining the old rehabilitated stable, is topped with a hip roof. Meticulous and ambitious restoration works have transformed this 19th century farmhouse into a comfortable, high-tech home.
Its lime-pointed, local stone facade faces south and features numerous openings. Built partially over cellars, it spans two levels and an attic floor. Superb terraces, delimited by low stone walls are set out around the house. The swimming pool, flanked by a vast terrace, looks out over an exceptional panoramic view.

Our opinion
Alexandre-Vialatte described his native Auvergne as “a secret more than a province”. There is nothing ordinary about this remote area that provides original panoramic views and a collection of surprises at every turn for its visitors. This old farmstead is set in the depths of these mysterious lands, there where the Loire discreetly begins its long journey to the sea. The serenity of the site is a permanent invitation to relax far from the urban hustle and bustle and to commune with the omnipresent nature. This property, on the water’s edge, facing its small island, is an excellent holiday home. Its home comforts, where modernity is combined with tradition, benefit from excellent home automation and new technologies such that it is both easy and economical to look after.
