About the property

This delightful semi-detached cottage, with all the accomodation to be found on the ground floor, has been newly renovated. It includes a spacious living room leading to a good sized kitchen diner, a double bedroom with kingsize bed and a fully tiled wetroom/shower. Outside there is a large garden, including a wooden decking for outside eating and a small courtyard infront of the house. Laundry facilities and storage space is found in one of the old piggeries. Sun loungers, cushions, and BBQ are also provided. Whilst canine guests are welcome, please note that the garden is not entirely enclosed.

The cottage is perfectly placed to enjoy the many outdoor activities available. There are walks to suit all levels, from 1 hour easy terrain walks to more challenging GR tracks. Mountain bikers and road cyclists are also well catered for with an impressive network of tracks and quiet lanes. It is also possible to try paragliding, canoeing, canyoning, via ferrata and swimming.

Cultural pursuits include amongst other things, a selection of chateaux, museums and in August the renowned stree theatre festival in Aurillac.

The house is in a very rural setting which is extremely calm and tranquil but does mean that the local supermarketsn and commerces are approximately half an hour away. There are small 'epiceries' in both Fontanges and St Projet de Salers for basics.

About The Owner

Have been living in France for nearly 10 years. I'm a cook and my husband is a carpenter. We've spent many years, renovating our own properties in both the UK and France.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2013

Why The Owner chose Saint-Projet-de-Salers

Love the location in the mountains and the ease of access to the walking trails.

What makes this cottage unique


Ideal for walkers, cyclists and people who just want to relax and get away from it all

A great way to end the day is on the wooden deck looking down the valley towards the sunset with a glass of wine!

A lovely cottage in a delightful location

  • 5 of 5

The owners of the cottage, Hannah and Keith were very helpful and provided a warm welcome to the cottage. There was a folder with much useful information on the area. The cottage is set in a very quiet and tranquil location, nestled in the upper valley with three or so other houses, but with a couple of larger villlages (with small shop) only a few mins drive away. It was very clean and tidy and had all the things you need including a washing machine which was very useful. The kitchen was well equiped with all the necessary gadgets and utensils, the bedroom very comfortable and nicely decorated. The living space was really spacious with huge inglenook firplace with a woodburner which, unfortunately, we were unable to make use of due to the hot weather. The wet shower room is compact but very clean and stylish.The cottage is set at the edge of a large plot which gives a lovely sense of space.

One of the real delights was eating outside in the evening on the decking area (bbq and fuel included - nice touch!) which provided the most beautiful views down the valley to the west with the setting sun. A real time to savour!

A good network of roads provides easy access around the area for walks and cycling, and there are some beautiful villages to visit, including the renowned Salers. There are some very nice restaurants in the area. We tried one in Fontanges, the Auberge de l'Aspre, which was excellent.

If peace and quiet, and a great sense of tranquility are what you are after then this is a fabulous getaway. Probably the only thing missing for me was a wifi connection but if you are trying to 'getaway' perhaps this is not such a bad thing.

Véritable hâvre de paix

  • 5 of 5

Gîte agréable, au calme, tout y est pour passer un séjour reposant et ressourçant.

Avec un accueil très agréable des propriétaires (très sympa).

Nous avons passé une superbe semaine (du 19 au 26 aout) dans cette région magnifique.

A l'écart des hordes de touristes.

A conseiller au amoureux de nature, de calme et de grands espaces.

Il y a de fortes chances que nous retournions un jour a Levert cottage.

Pierre & Sandrine Val de Marne.

Gite confortable un peu loin des commerces et des départs de randonnées.

  • 3 of 5

Le gite est situé dans un hameau au cœur d'une vallée fermée. Calme assuré et nature préservée. Mais l'inconvénient est l'éloignement des commerces et des départs de randonnées. Voiture indispensable!

Owner's Response: Je suis desolée que vous avez trouvez la maison un peu trop isolée. C'est vrai une voiture est indisponsible. J'ai été très étonné de l'apprendre que vous pensez les departs des randonnées sont loin de la maison. Peut-etre vous n'avez pas trouvé la carte IGN dans la maison? C'est possible à promener de la maison à Puy Chavaroche sans la voiture. 5 minutes de Levert c'est possible trouver les chemins à Fontanges, St Projet de Salers et Le Fau (GR400 et Puy Violent). Le Col de Legal est 15 minutes de la maison et vous trouvez GR400 encore. Nèanmoins, j'espere que vous avez passé les bonnes vacances. Cordialement Hannah

Un coin de paradis pour deux.

  • 5 of 5

Un superbe nid pour qui aime la nature et le calme, dans un environnement simplement superbe !

Il ne manque rien au gîte de Levert, même pas le soleil (pour nous en tout cas)...

D'autres devront peur-être y ajouter un coin de parapluie ?

Le salon est cosy à souhait, il ne manque rien à la cuisine avec coin repas, et la chambre très confortable !

La terrasse, bien orientée et avec un mobilier extérieur complet permet de vivre au soleil ou à l'ombre du parasol dans le calme avec pour musique le son champêtre des clochettes des vaches alpinistes.

La petite terrasse située à l'est invite au pt'it déj au grand air dès le lever.

Nous y avons vécu cette semaine de juin 2017 avec bonheur !

C & J.P. Namur
