Enjoy the cozy fire in the common room, sleep in a luxurious bed, take advantage of the peace and quiet away from it all. REALLY away--you need to follow a single lane country road for a bit to find it. Excellent wi-fi, an accommodating host with a cute family, fresh bread, yogurt and eggs for breakfast--family style. Take a look at the before-and-after photos of the renovation. They did an amazing job.
This is among the best chambre d'hôtes or gites that I have ever stayed at. The way the owner constructed the space is perfect. Views from all the rooms, and they are silent no matter what is going on in the common space below. Absolutely divine atmosphere and feels very warm inside (ambiance). A large fireplace was excellent at this time of year to enjoy with friends while enjoying a cocktail (or two). They built a great cave with lounge chairs to enjoy a glass of wine and relax. The owner in very nice and was fun to talk to and rear with local recommendations. It was an excellent weekend with friends, made extra special by a fabulous location and really, really well done rooms.
We came to Laguiole to eat at the renowned restaurant and to buy cutlery. When the Bras hotel offered us a room at over 500 euros, we searched out this alternative and were pleased with the outcome (including eating at Bras). The Caprice is about a mile up a winding track off the road from St Flour. It is a successful conversion of an old farm building, done out in modern taste, even including fast wifi. Our room was spacious, with a comfortable king-sized bed, excellent bathroom with walk-in shower and good storage. There is a large living room downstairs, with a pool table that Nathan, the tiny son of the house, tries desperately to take over. Breakfast is simple but good quality French style. It's worth ringing ahead to say when you're arriving, as the owners might be out during the daytime. For a pleasant, impeccable B&B, the price was very reasonable indeed.…
We booked for two nights and had an enjoyable stay. We were going to Laguiole to purchase knives and we were not disappointed as we did a tour of the Forge de Laguiole. Bejnamin and his family have done a marvellous job of restoring the old dairy worthy of featuring on Grand designs. Lovely breakfasts of freshly made delicacies. Also not far away is the most beautiful village of Estaing also well worth a visit.
We spent just 1 night in this beautiful chambre d'hote lovingly converted by Benjamin and his family. THey have done a gorgeous job of bringing the house back to life, maintaining many lovely original features whilst introducing all of the modern comforts you could ask for. They couldn't have been more welcoming and charming and nothing was too much trouble. They also organised a babysitter for our little one. Only a few minutes drive from Laguiole. Highly recommended.
