Oh my, if you have children (or even if you haven't) this 1000 year old chateau bed and breakfast near Clermont-Ferrand (and just 3 hours from Paris) is an unmissable address. Perfect for a stopover being only 15 minutes from junction 11 of the A71 autoroute North of Clermont, the chateau B&B will enchant all those who love mystery and magic and will capture the imagination of young and old alike. The battlements and the moat, the big open fireplaces and the unbelievably thick old stone walls which keep the rooms cool in summer but warm in winter, what tales they must tell. But stay longer and visit Vichy which is just 30 minutes away or the lovely old town of Montlucon also 30 minutes away.

Despite the age of the old chateau, it is today a very successful combination of the medieval and the modern, of charm and practicality. The beds, some four-poster, some with canopied bedsteads, have comfortable mattresses and good bedding, the en suite bathrooms have powerful showers and modern fittings and you will even find a TV (French channels only) in your room.

Dominique's limited English has never stopped her from being able to offer the best hospitality to her guests and the dinner table is a fine occasion at which to meet fellow visitors. Produce is locally sourced and beautifully served at the big old table in the banqueting hall on the second floor. The public areas of the chateau have the benefit of WiFi although it does not yet stretch through the thick stone walls to the guest bedrooms. Dogs are welcome here for no extra charge. The towns of Vichy and Montluçon are both within a half hour's drive.

Dogs are accepted at the chateau for no extra charge.

Previous visitor comments
We stayed at this fab chateau near Clermont and it was like something out of a medieval fairy tale, complete with moat. Beautiful four poster bedroom in the turret and dining room table superbly laid for 4 awaited us on our arrival. We were well looked after in a very unobtrusive way. An incredible place to stay, we will remember it for future trips. - the Hoggs

Very good...close to motorway, great setting, friendly, rooms fantastic, very clean, very french, lovely breakfast. I would recommend and stay again....good from your perspective as well.....well done! The Smythe family

I just wanted to say that the chateau bed and breakfast accommodation near Clermont that we booked through you was absolutely wonderful. The setting was magical, our room was fantastic, really comfortable and very good shower. The hosts were very welcoming and the food was superb, we had dinner and breakfast. Next time we go to France we will use your company. - the Hydes

We had a fabulous stopover at the chateau! Our four year old was convinced there was a dragon living under the tower, and we had a gorgeous room in the blue room, perfect for our needs. The host was very helpful, and our dinner with other guests in the dining room was the icing on the cake – delicious! - the Daly family

We stayed at the chateau bed and breakfast near Clermont Ferrand twice, on our way to Spain and on our return. This was a marvelous place the hosts were kind and friendly, we had the rose suite - it was clean and large enough for ourselves and 15 year old son. We were given an impromptu meal as we had not eaten. When leaving we were going at 4am so our breakfast was given for us to take. It is a beautiful calm spot away from it all. If you bring your own food it is handy as the nearest restaurant is about 10km, or book dinner. We had a dog with us and it was no trouble a lovely place and kind hosts - the Moore family

We had a fantastic stay at the chateau near Cermont Ferrand - thank you. They made a really brilliant and delicious effort to make us a vegetarian meal of local dishes - we hugely appreciated it. And the chateau is just beautiful - the Wise family
