You will stay in the heart of France, in the Auvergne region, Puy-de-Dôme county, in the part called Combrailles (north-west of Puy-de-Dôme) in the municipality of Charensat (500 residents), nearby Creuse region.

An undulating countryside with woodlands and pasturelands, crossed by many little streams and ponds welcomes you.

The two main characteristics of Combrailles are the «bocages» landscape (small hedge fields with groved trees) and Sioule River with his deep gorges. An area of low-lying mountains from 300 up to 900 m high. Charensat is situated at about 700 m above sea-level.

For a long time we were looking for a calm holiday vacation to decompress and recharge from stressful work, road traffic , neighbours, any other sort of noise pollution and bad air you live with in any bigger city.

A place where during your holidays your are not crammed with a mass of other tourists just next to you... .

This represents Puy Montaly and this is our vision of tourism. On a wooden area of 6,7 ha you live  :

  - In the forest

  - On a clearing south facing with a panoramic view of the surroundings

  - In a comfortable log cabin with terrace and garden

  - Without any neighbour next to you ( The closests neighbours are living at 400m distance in a small hamlet behind the forest)

Simply a quiet holiday vacation.

We are a french-german couple with three little children and we worked a longtime in tourism and advertizing professions.


We will build up gradually on our property several independant, unoverlooked wooden cottages with no noise from your neighbour, a multifunctional room for meetings, a playground and a pétanque court.

We have as well the idea to add later to every log cabin his private norvegian steam bath and a strolling path on our forest property. A lot of work to do. But firstly we built up the first log cabin for 2017. And it will be a pleasure for us to welcome you soon.
