Straw Angel Mill is a converted sawmill located in a nature reserve in Puy De Dome ( Parc Livradois Forez ), the heart of the Auvergne, France's most unspoilt region. It is 900 metres above sea level and surrounded by forest and pastures, with many tracks and trails accessible from the house. It is ideal for those who love to be outdoors; whether hiking through the natural environment, relaxing by the stream in the privacy of the secluded wild garden or exploring an authentic region that hasn't been overwhelmed by tourists. Despite the house's secluded setting, both basic needs and special treats are within easy reach - a 5 minute drive or 20 minute walk to Viverols, a small medieval town with a traditional French bakery open daily for fresh baguettes and pastries, and 5 minutes from a mountain pass with a restaurant serving delicious local food. There is a mountain lake with a family friendly beach for a cool dip in summer & a ski station in winter, 20 minutes away as well as horse-riding, tree top activity centres, and marked mountain-bike circuits nearby.

Lovely spot. So quiet. So nice.

By John Richardson on 27-Aug-2022

One morning, on our dog walk (thanks for the map) we came across a farmer walking his goats, with his sheep (goat) dog. The goats and his dog were super-interested in our white golden retriever puppy. Although no-one could understand each other (we don't have French) we sort of understood that it was alright to let Oso off the leash. And total canine/goat joy ensued. The dogs played. The goats joined in. It was wonderful. The house is good too. Although Oso was not a fan of the stairs up to the living bit. I had to carry him up and down until he got his head around it. Great cycling too.

Thanks John! I'd love to have been a fly on the wall when Oso met the goats & goat dog-priceless! R eminds me of taking a siamese cat for a walk in the Peak District- some sheep decided to follow him in a neat single file line as he walked around a big old tree. He walked faster to get away in a circle around the tree to escape the sheep on his tail and found he was then following the last sheep...

Charming Getaway

The pictures on the website give an inkling of this charming getaway. We wanted a place off the beaten track away from the hordes of tourists in Europe in July but with modern comforts and plenty of room. My teenage daughters discovered that there is life without internet. We all had a marvelous time. We visited the neighboring village Viverols and the nearest market town Ambert had everything we needed. The mountain lake was quite refreshing so we went there often. A perfect place for a peaceful holiday. Stayed Jul 2013

Peace at last!

We live in the Alps and were looking for a get-away-from-it-all location for a long weekend with our dog. Sarah was kind enough to let us rent the mill for a few nights (as it was out of season) and we couldn't have wished for more. We loved the fact that there was no Wifi and phone reception only from the kitchen window. It meant that we just enjoyed the countryside, eating, drinking and playing Scrabble! Viverols is small but has all the amenities you need, the food at the Auberge up the road was local & totally scrumptious and the various footpaths near the mill kept the dog happy. It snowed, which is very unusual for this time of year, but the mill was toasty warm. It did mean we couldn't make much use of the garden, but I can imagine how lovely it must be in summer, particularly with the covered outside space. The mill is well-equipped in the kitchen and with games & books. Luckily the wood-burner, tins of candles and gas oven came into their own when we had a power-cut! We hope to return one day, next time with a group of friends. It was a great cosy weekend getaway, but is also definitely a place for summer BBQs and late-night guitar playing! Stayed Oct 2013
