This is an extraordinary property, beautifully run by M. & Mme. Penicaud, whose home it is. They are as welcoming as they are discreet, happy to share their knowledge of the historic chateau and the surrounding area or simply leave you to enjoy the splendor of the place on your own. The five rented rooms are in a nicely separate area, with access to a beautiful common room/library, breakfast room, and spacious gardens. One of the great Auvergnat Romansque churches is practically next door, and several more, nestled in spectacular volcanic landscape scenery, are an easy drive away. The village itself is quite small with limited dining options within walking distance, but your hosts are happy to recommend options a bit further afield and to reserve for you. You will have an impeccable experience stopping over here.

We are very greatfull to you to hear you had a great experience while staying with us and discovering the surrounding area. We are proud to say the volcanoes chain of the Puys has been classified as part of the World Heritage by UNESCO. Staying a few days is indeed the best way to get the best of such an experience.

Nothing fake. A true Monument Historique that has been attentively restored. Luxury and peace. Spectacular exterior space and views. Charming village. You feel far from modern civilization, but with every comfort, and you’re back on the Autoroute in minutes.

This was a great place to stay on our way to Lyon. We stayed one night and I wish we had booked more time there. It was a quiet, comfortable and very interesting place with wonderful owners who showed us other areas in the castle, giving us the history of the place.

Searching for an overnight stop when driving from the Loire Valley to Provence, this privately owned 13th century chateau seemed ideal. And it was! Physically imposing as it sits high on a hilltop overlooking the village. Met by the owner, who gave us a tour of the property and a brief history. The family rents five "units" in the castle, and lives there as well. Abundant materials to read about the region. Our room was spacious, decorated beautifully, the bedding was comfortable. There is a common room for the guests, with coffee, liquor, and snacks.A real treat was breakfast, with wonderful food prepared by the owner, in a marvelous kitchen. There is a historic church within walking distance, but not much else around for explorationThis was a perfect place to stay as a midpoint in our travels. Kudos to the Penicauds for the quality of their presentation, and the warmth of their welcome.
