A peaceful retreat and base for touring
On a motorcycle tour of France, we spent four great nights at La Terrasse. It was my second visit and my friend has been many times. Its position in a quiet wooded valley and tiny village gives it a real sense of peace and retreat. The reception area is smart and modern, the bedrooms and bathrooms less so but nevertheless they are clean and comfortable, just a little dated. Star feature is the beautiful terrace, under an ancient wisteria and looking out over the generous swimming pool, surrounded by exotic plantings. The style and quality of food is exceptionally good. This is really fine dining in rural France. It is small menu, heavily featuring local produce and a modern take on traditional dishes. The staff are all very helpful and friendly and offer a professional service. Vieillevie is a great base to explore the lovely countryside of the Cantal and the Aubrac national park by bicycle, in the car, but especially by motorbike.
