The house is situated in the beautiful region of the Auvergne, centre of France.

It is positioned on a hillside between the small charming village of Busset, with its own wonderful chateau, bar, restaurant, school and bakery, and the town of St. Yorre. This is a small town complete with schools, doctors and chemists, police and a town hall. There are bars and restaurants within the town and many in the local region.

The attractive spa town of Vichy with its parks and River Allier is ten minutes away. There are many eating places and bars mixed in among a wonderful array of shops selling absolutely everything. There is a casino and an elegant opera house in the centre of town and many events take place throughout the year. During the summer there are regular musical events attracting families and singles alike.

Vichy places great emphasis on sporting events of all kinds such as kayaking, river sports and it also has its own hippodrome with regular trotting events taking place. There is a local airport with a tarmac runway and flying club.

There are many well-known spring waters bottled in the area, such as :    St. Yorre, Vichy and Volvic.

Less than an hour away is the university city of Clermont-Ferrand with its cathedral built of volcanic stone making it black in appearance. The town stands at the base of the chain of Puys, the highest one being the Puy de Dome. There is also an international airport at Clermont-Ferrand.


The house was built in the early 1970,s and has been in our ownership since 1990. It is individually designed and stands in 2000 metres of fenced garden with mature trees, shrubs and gravel driveway. It is situated at about 1000 metres from St.Yorre centre. Although the house stands on its own it is not isolated.

The property faces south and has unrestricted views. With the constantly changing skyline the Puy de Dome and mountain range can be clearly seen beyond the rolling countryside of the Allier giving great satisfaction when viewed from the terrace. Also at night the lights of the surrounding villages and towns twinkle magically across the valley.
