B&B near Clermont and Saint Etienne in the Auvergne, France

ID: 542
You'll love the peace and tranquillity of this British-owned bed and breakfast accommodation which is tucked away in the heart of the Auvergne – France's 'secret garden' – near the village of Bertignat midway between Clermont-Ferrand and Saint-Etienne in the Parc Naturel Régional du Livardois.

Staying in this beautifully restored traditional farmhouse, you can spend your days exploring, walking, horse riding (there is a horse riding centre just 10 minutes away), mountain biking (there are 15 marked mountain bike circuits around Ambert 15 mins away) or visiting the many museums and places of historic interest that are in this area of the Auvergne.

Children will appreciate the Parc Zoologique du Bouy with its 400 species of animal on a 40 hectare estate. Or you may just wish to sit and read in the spacious garden, taking in the views over the fields to the distant mountains. Ah, peace!

The nearest village is on the 'Route des Métiers', a tour of carefully selected local craftworkers and small-scale food producers - well worth an explore if you are after a taste of local culture and tradition. Also, don't miss the local Thursday market in Ambert - well known for its huge variety of delicious regional honey, Auvergne cheeses, charcuterie and seasonal fruit and veg.

Quality home-cooked evening meals are available here (including vegetarian by prior arrangement) as well as packed lunches for long walks in this beautiful Auvergne countryside.

Children are welcome here - your host can provide a cot, high chair, baby bath plus a changing mat.

We had a lovely stay with Sylvia & Tony at their B&B in the lovely Auvergne - great place, very friendly, had a lovely meal with them on the Friday night - very hospitable and Sylvia was great at accommodating Alex's aversion to vegetables! Very much recommend them - the Oatways
