The Eastern part of the Puy de Dôme region is covered by the emerald-green Livradois Forest. If you drive along the bank of the meandering River Dore and then up a steep hill, you come to the sleepy village of Tours-sur-Meymont and you understand why this district of rolling hills is nicknamed “the Tuscany of the Auvergne”. This B&B is located on the edge of the village in a former monastery dating back to the seventeenth century. Helen and Henk have tastefully restored it, and have re-used the original doors, fittings and other features to create a lovely haven of peace and quiet where it is so easy to relax. This is reflected in the B&B’s name “La Paresse en Douce” (“Sweet Idleness”). The five spacious and very attractive bedrooms feature many original features but have a comfortable, modern atmosphere. Each bedroom have a spacious shower, large washbasin and WC. Two of them form suites with a connecting smaller bedroom. There is a delightful guests’ lounge and a library in the former chapel. Relaxation areas have been set up in several corners of the beautiful garden and there is also an outdoor hot tub with a marvellous view! There is also a small plunge pool which has been adapted for use by children. The garden is an ideal place to while away your time. In the summer, breakfast and evening meals are served outdoors on the terrace created by the delightful owners of this beautiful place.
