In Auvergne This Summer

The départements that make up the Auvergne each offer different facets of the region. For example, the Allier département has hints of Burgundy in its architecture and landscapes, including this pretty manor house, set back from the road and submerged under greenery.

The départements that make up the Auvergne each offer different facets of the region. For example, the Allier département has hints of Burgundy in its architecture and landscapes, including this pretty manor house, set back from the road and submerged under greenery. Lynn is happy for her garden and home to be invaded by Mother Nature, which gives them a wild and natural appearence.  The interior of the building is very charming with its brick walls, its ornaments and furniture picked up here and there by the owners on their travels and Olivier’s paintings. The brightly coloured lounge is warmly welcoming, as is the dining room with its huge fireplace, where breakfasts and evening meals are served by Lynn. The smaller guest rooms are named “Nature”, “Rouge” and “Sous les toits” and the larger ones “Blanche” and “Africaine”. They are all decorated in different styles, with matching ornaments and furniture, painted walls and pretty curtains and bedcovers. “Le Pigeonnier” is a self-contained unit overlooking the courtyard garden and its odd lay-out has a lounge and kitchen on the ground floor, a bathroom on the first floor and a bedroom and lounge area on the second floor, and is idea for guests looking for more autonomy. The former orangery next to the house has given way to a beautiful indoor swimming pool whose walls are regularly decorated with works of art by local artists. A beautiful place to stay in Auvergne, near to Vichy, the Bourbonnais hills and the Saint-Pourçain vineyards.
