We cooked, we shopped, we walked miles managing to decipher the maps and signage that leads you around this beautiful countryside. Angie, Kate, Lucy and Jane

We have lots of wonderful memories from St Flour: hope to be back again. Carol and John

Staying at rue Sorel was fantastic: what a gorgeous house — and so close to everything Kate and Therese

Walked the town, eaten out, eaten in. Fantastic. Local produce was fresh, the cheese magic, fruit, veggies: all of the highest quality. We have recharged our batteries and are off to Paris for 6 days. Would rather be staying another week here to explore the district more fully. A fabulous bolt hole. Anne and Gerard

We add St Flour to our ever-growing list of “we'll be back” — 2010, 2011. Mike and Lyn

St Flour was THE highlight of our entire European trip. Trish

Living in the village for a week was like being in another world. The language, customs and architecture are so typically rural French, and so far from anything I had ever experienced. Your house is a real joy and staying there really makes you feel part of the village. Peter and Mary

We had a wonderful time in France, and especially in Saint-Flour. I can't wait to return!

Thank you for the use of your beautiful house in Saint-Flour. We had a wonderful time. The house was perfect, just what we needed: a break from the hectic pace.

The house has been a delight and lives up to the prospectus details … the town and surroundings have given us great pleasure.

We loved the daily trips to the boulangerie and all the great things this place has to offer. THANK YOU!

It's been a rewarding and satisfying experience living in Saint-Flour— where few tourists venture, it would seem. To observe the everyday activities, listen to this beautifully lilting accent, and taste the local cuisine of the town has been our delight.

To look up towards Saint-Flour, or to look down towards the lower town, present breathtaking views.

As inexperienced Aussie skiers we had a great day at Le Lioran ski resort, a short half-hour drive west of Saint-Flour. Beautiful pine tree surroundings. The téléphérique area is great for families and beginners. Prices of hire etc are very reasonable and there are cafés right on the ski fields.

As a family of five we couldn't have asked for a better place to settle down after travelling for a month.

Thank you for enabling us to have the most wonderful week! We adored the cottage, Saint-Flour, and the amazing Auvergne countryside.

We had most of our meals in since we'd been on the road for a while by then and it was nice to just go and buy the lovely stuff in the Saint-Flour shops and market. Les fromages!

The locals were so helpful. I thought the French were supposed to be dour!

Thanks for the opportunity to stay in Rue Sorel. We loved it and it made a perfect start to our weeks away. As a bonus we struck their local festival, Hautes-Terres and could sample the local food, music, and dance.
