Our Neighbourhood

Our house is located in a rural and medium altitude area. It is situated in the conglomeration of Le Puy en Velay called chadrac and dominates the centre of this village offering a very beautiful plunging sight on the surrounding mountains and the loire valley. We live at the end of an impasse; so the district is very quiet. Our neighbours are pleasant and very discreet.
The town center is easy to get by car (about 5mn). There are two supermarkets nearly and a corner shop where organic produces can be found.
Le Puy en Velay is a small town: 20000 people( 50000 people for all the agglomeration) on the road of the pilgrimage of Santiago de Compostella. That is the capital of the department of Haute Loire, a rural department.The city is classed at Unesco historic heritage because of a large historic center with:
   - a cathedral built on volcanic stones
   - small, narrow and incline streets with middle-age houses
   - Virgin statue on a rock
   - a small, pretty church on a rock.
It is a very nice city to visit by foot with a lot of cultural events and concerts in summer. Don't miss the market on saturday morning, it's a colourful and traditional place and it's really worth the trip.
Our moutainous region is ideal for hiking, doing canoe, rafting, montain bike and swimming in lakes( 3 lakes within a 45 km radius of Le Puy) or in rivers( l'Allier or La Loire)
Weather in summer
About 28° celsius in the middle of the day during summer. The nights are cooler because the city is at 600 meters altitude. It is very sunny on the hot days and there is sometimes storm rain in the evening.
Weather in winter
The temperature are various in december: between -5° to 15°. You could have snow but it uses to smelt quickly in Le Puy. On the mountains around, you can ski (30 minutes away from home).
Further 
Lyon is about 1h30 from Le Puy
Clermont-Ferrand at 1h30
Marseille and Mediterranée sea, about 3h30
