In a beautiful setting between the mountains and forests, our rambling 1930's home is a great base to explore the wonders of the Auvergne or for a relaxing stop on route to the south. Our rooms are light-filled and spacious, each with a private bathroom. Two of the rooms can connect - ideal for families and the gardens are wonderful for both letting off steam and relaxing with a book. Breakfasts are home-cooked from local produce.
Welcome to our family home. Originally from the UK, we moved to France in 2016 with our four children with a vision of restoring this lovely house back into a family home.
The guest rooms and gardens offer unrivalled views of the surrounding farmland and mountains beyond, yet we are far from isolated, situated just a few minutes’ walk down to the historic village of Olliergues. The towns of Thiers and Ambert are less than 30 minutes away, as is the A89 motorway Lyon to Bordeaux.
We have extensive terraced gardens that we are currently restoring. Grapevines, now wild, still exist from when it was a vineyard along with a small fruit orchard and a nuttery. We use produce from the garden in our baking and jams for breakfast.
We have wifi and all the rooms have private bathrooms. For families we have travel cots, children's books and games (both French and English), plus our own children (of various ages) all anxious to show younger guests around.
All the garden areas are accessible and our breakfast room is always open and stocked with homemade 'emergency' cookies, cordial, tea and coffee.
