La Maison de Réflexion remains our favourite place to unwind. G & A the perfect hosts. Thankyou. Until next time.

Once again we've enjoyed a wonderful relaxing break, creating more great memories, eating and drinking well, whilst experiencing all the delights Pitelet and the surrounding area has to offer. It's great to see the changes every time we visit and we certainly notice how homely you always make the place feel. Wish we could stay longer, but until next time...

Thankyou for the tremendous hospitality! We've enjoyed every moment of our stay at your chambre d'hôtes. We had a lovely time when having great meals with you. Thanks to your continuous attention we've experienced fantastic holidays and felt like at home - in fact much better.

Back to Pitelet after a few years. Last time we were here with Christmas and we promised ourselves to be back in springtime. So the first two weeks of May were ours. We had a wonderful time. We came and left with a little bit of moisture in the air but the two weeks in between were warm and sometimes even hot. We spotted 22 different birds and start to recognize them easily. We enjoyed walking, cycling and being lazy in the sun enjoying the garden and the view. With thanks again for staying here. It was like a dream. Now back to work again.

Many thanks again for this wonderful - too short though! - stay. We had a great time with you. One thing is sure: we'll be back some day!

Having experienced A & G's previous enterprise, a specialist cookshop, we were not perplexed to find La Maison equally excellent. A wonderful eye for detail superb food and great company, it has all added up to a very enjoyable week. And I loved the books, the pictures, the flowers - the lovely fleece dressing gowns! It's so quiet and peaceful here - who knows we might be back next year.

Thankyou both for another slice of your superb hospitality! You really think of everything, and the warmest welcome, fantastic food and great company! Thanks again.

We hebben fantastische week gehad waarbij we hebben genoten van de gastvrijheid. De laatste dag waaren we 45jr getrouwd en hebben bij A en G gegeten. Hierbij hadden zij de tafel feestelijk gedekt en kregen we zelfs een presentie en natuurlijk was en heerlijk gekookt. Wij zullen daarom zeker nog eens terug komen.

We have had a wonderful week in a beautiful gite. Thanks to A&G for their excellent hospitality. The weather has been perfect and we visited many places including 3 different markets, St Remy sur Durolle, Maringues and lastly Ambert which was superb. We have enjoyed lunch in different places but especially The Copains in Ambert. We also enjoyed our trip to the Puy de Dome on the tourist train; it was marvellous. The cutlery museum in Thiers was also worth a visit. We realise there is plenty more to see in the Auvergne and may return in the future.

Our third time here and just as good! Had a relaxing time in the garden, good conversation around the dinner table in the evening with excellent food. Hope to see you again one day and many thanks for your kind hospitality.

Well ! It's difficult to capture the fullness of the care of excellence you give out to us every year. It reaches the ultimate satisfaction for W. and me. With all our love.

Nous nous souviendrons de notre passage chez vous. Il donne envie d'y rester un peu plus longtemps. Si notre moto nous conduit à nouveau dans votre région, sûr que nous reviendrons. Merci.

Flawless, fantastic, absolutely brilliant. Thoroughly enjoyed very minute. So good to see you again. Thank you so much. We will be back!

En passage vers le Sud nous avons découvert chez vous un endroit paisible dégageant harmonie, bien-être et chaleur humaine. Merci pour le délicieux repas et les moments d'échange !

Many thanks for a wonderful peaceful two weeks. It has gone so fast!
We have loved everything about our stay and your hospitality has been second to none. We thoroughly enjoyed the BBQ. Excellent food and great to meet some of the local community who were very patient with our stumbling french!

At the last moment we were able to book a few days at your Maison de la Réflexion. What a warm welcome after our last stay 7 years ago. And again we had a fantastic and relax stay. We almost forgotten the remarkable silence and beautiful surroundings. Also the superb sunset did charme us again. A peaceful place where we wanted to stay longer... K and S also had a fantastic short week. They did not missing other children to play with. S feed the birds every morning, made a lot of pictures of them while eating the seeds. And K dreamed of his own little "gite" in the near future. Last but not least, the area is great for mountain-biking and there are so many tracks that you easily got lost in the Auvergne!! Many thanks for your love and kindness.

Ik heb het hier on wijs naar me zin gehad ik vond zo leuk. De BBQ was heerlijk. Kortom super leuke vakantie.

Er is een mooie natuur. Je hebt hier rust. Er het is super leuk. Dankjewel

Wonderful gite, excellent 1st meal, company & welcome pack. Amazing views. Thoroughly enjoyable 1st holiday. P.S. Will recommend to all our friends!

Dass Ihr unsere Shampoos bewahrt habt, die wir letztes Jahr vergessen hatten, zeigt das wir geradezu zu Hause sind. Wir danken für die schöne Zeit bei Euch, die ausgiebigen Frühstücksgespräche gemixt in 2 bis 4 Sprachen und freuen uns auf ein nächstes Mal !

Thankyou...for making us feel so welcome. We have really enjoyed our stay and we have appreciated the peacefulness and tranquility of the Auvergne. La Maison de Réflexion does exactly what it says on the tin! Thankyou.

How lucky we have been to have found you - the perfect hosts - with such a perfect gîte tucked away in the Auvergne. Your company, the wonderful welcome, the walks, the chance for S to enjoy language lessons and helping us to celebrate has made for a week of memories that will be cherished. Although it has only been a matter of days since we arrived, we leave feeling a warmth and an attachment to you along with a hope to return in the future. A la prochaine!

Our first visit to the Auvergne for a much-needed break has been a first-rate experience. The hospitality and peacefulness here is the best we've had in 25 years of French holidays, and A & G's food is to die for. Thanks so much for providing the environment for us really to wind down.
