Once the home of a count, now a splendid B&B with walled gardens, pool, hot tub and mountain views
Find peace here on the edge of a village in the Livradois-Forez regional park. The house is up at 600m, with woods, pond and pool inside its high-walled grounds. We speak your language and love sharing our home with guests, advising on walks, bike rides, car tours and local sites. Breakfast is served individually, while home-cooked dinners are sociable affairs around a large table. Living room and corridors have modern paintings and quirky touches; bedrooms on three floors have lovely views, good boxspring bed, practical shower rooms (one also has an elegant bath) and calming colours.
As long as the Corona measures are in effect, we will follow the policy of the French government, and we have effected some appropriate measures. Starting the first of May 2020 we changed our booking and cancellation terms. You can always change your dates of stay free of charge, and cancel your stay free of charge up to 1 week before arrival (after that you will be charged the 30% deposit).
We are open year-round, the area is very nice to visit in all seasons. We are selected and approved by Sawday's.
We don't remember exactly when we started thinking about moving to France. In 2014, the decision was made and we started to make serious preparations. In the beginning we had only a few conditions: we were looking for a hilly region with excellent walking possibilities and good accessibility by car and public transport. After many trips to several departments (Drôme, Creuse, Cantal, Corrèze and Ardèche) we finally settled in the Puy de Dôme.
Since the start of 2016 we have been the proud owners of Domaine La Reveille. The mansion is located on the outskirts of the small village of Dore L'Eglise, at an altitude of 600 meters. From the house we have a magnificent view of the surrounding mountains. We were immediately touched in our hearts by the house: a beautiful structure, wonderful details, a pretty garden. Calm, but not isolated.
