We only stayed here for one night, but loved our stay. From the minute we arrived, we felt very relaxed. Lionel was so welcoming. The lodge we had overlooked the valley, and although it was small, it was very well appointed. The hot tub on the terrace was fantastic. The onsite restaurant is also great. Lovely venue, very good value. We will definitely return.
I spent only one night in this amazing resort on our way to Vulcania. We were 4 with 2 children ( 7 years and 1 year ) and we stayed in a triple room. Our room was basic but with all the comfort; clean, with a small kitchen, the main bedroom had a window over the ceiling to enjoy the stars. We had dinner at the facility restaurant which was very good: 3 menus to choose with uncommon peculiar combinations and fresh ingredients ( we also enjoyed very much local beers). The welcome was great, warm and pleasant. We would like to visit again maybe longer: Volca lodges makes you feel so in contact with the nature with all the comfort you need.
Thinking of it, I wonder what is the most amazing about this place? The outstanding chalets, the magnificent surroundings or the owner, Lionel? With some reflection, I guess the latter one. He is the 'glue' between everything at hand there. His concept of all wooden chalets, his amazing knowledge of the region and its hidden gems and his good humor from start-to-end made it a memorable stay. Cannot recommend enough.
Used as a stopping point on route from Switzerland to the Dordogne. Discovered a charming part of France with plenty to do in the area. Restaurant was excellent, as was the local sparkling apreo. Lionel, the owner, was exceptionally friendly and helpful, finding us the perfect walk to do before going off the next day. Will definitely be going back for a longer stay, to enjoy the star gazing skylight placed above the bed.
In a beautiful setting in the country side not far from Puy de Dome volcano, is the Volca'lodges. It is not far from the highway, but far enough away from civilisation to feel exclusive and truly special. Upon entering the property you immediately feel the nostalgic charm of the old stone barn-like reception building and the surrounding wooden cabins. We were warmly greeted by Lionel in the reception, which was a beautiful, wooden great room with both modern and vintage trappings making it feel so cool that you wish it were your own living room. Lionel met us at our car to load our bags onto a golf cart and escorted us down to our cabin which we we approached with massive smiles as we discovered the dramatic, unobstructed view of the valley, hillsides, and soon to be sunset.
