This charming house has walls and a roof made of limestone from Xaintric in the Auvergne and enjoys pretty views of the Cantal hills. It is surrounded by a pretty garden full of luxuriant greenery. The attractive wooden front door is framed by a pink clematis. It opens onto a huge room with a fireplace, dining table and lounge area. A beautiful staircase leds up to the guest bedrooms named “Marronnier”, “Frêne” and “Armoise”. They are cosy and decoarted in soft hues, with antique furniture and beautiful fabrics. The “Le Journalier” suite is in a neighbouring building with its own terrace and garden. The ground floor has a traditional bread oven and is now a lounge with a sofabed. Upstairs is a bedroom with a pretty four-poster bed and a bathroom. Monsieur Charles, who will welcome you, is charming and talkative. He know this region very well and will happily tell you about its traditions, its historic buildings and the history of the village. He collects old household objects which he has used to decorate the rooms of the B&B, including a fine collection of copper pans which decorate his living room. In the evenings, he will happily prepare you Auvergne specialities in his kitchen, including his famous “truffade” and “flognardes” ! This is a B&B where guests quickly feel at home and are tempted to linger, as much for the building itself as for the tourist attractions nearby.
