A unique and indulgent retreat into the wild

Cantal

Description

Escape to this authentic retreat nestled in the heart of the country, by the Auvergne volcanoes. Experience an unforgettable, relaxing getaway. Overlooking the stunning Cere valley in the Cantal region, this atypical stone house, originally an old shepherds' shelter, has been completely renovated oozing comfort and charm in a rustic and authentic ambiance. An off grid and secluded retreat, this beautiful stone house is lit, solely by candles and firelight from the wood burner. After a day exploring the surrounding nature, unwind in this warm and tastefully decorated house. This remote escape offers all the necessities to ensure a blissful stay. (bathroom with hot water, kitchen with 2 burners…). Alone or with your other half, experience a unique and timeless moment.

Totally isolated, the closest road is 2.5 miles away. A SUV will pick you up and drop you off, to and from your arrival train station or airport. Tucked away in lush green valleys, this cosy refuge is the perfect place to lose yourself in the spectacular nature of the Cantal region. ***Currently undergoing essential restructuring work, this refuge will be available for rental again in 2022***

What I love about this retreat

"A truly exceptional property - and one of very few in France! Cut off from the world for a few days, we come back to daily life completely refreshed, impatiently waiting for our next visit. It’s a lovely ritual of self care and reconnecting with nature." Amélie Fiat, Founder
