La Grande Chaume
Surrounded by the tranquillity of fields and countryside, La Grande Chaume is a charming old farmhouse set in a rural area of Auvergne.
We have two large family rooms as well as a single room, all equipped with hairdryers and tea/coffee-making facilities. Cots and children's beds can be provided for a small extra charge, and we also have facilities for babies. Irons and ironing boards and a laundry service are available.
Guests at La Grande Chaume can choose between a continental or a cooked breakfast, and we can also prepare packed picnic lunches for you to take with you during the day. Delicious 4 course evening meals are available, subject to prior arrangement. Please let us know at the time of booking if you have any special dietary requirements.
Our rustic property enjoys an atmosphere of total peace and relaxation, with our nearest neighbours located 3 fields away! We are still within easy reach of the RCEA and the A71, meaning we are perfect for a stopover as you travel through France. We have ample parking for cars and motorbikes.
We have an assortment of animals and birds at our smallholding. John is a beekeeper, with hives in the orchard and surrounding villages. You can be sure of a warm welcome, a comfortable bed and good food when you stay at La Grande Chaume.
