CLOSED ANNUALLY: The rooms are rented on an individual basis from May 15th to October 15th, and collectively from October 16th to May 14th.

THE STORY: After le Buron de Niercombe — saved at the last minutefrom a probable collapse — Isabelle and Frédéric have brought a 14th century building located in Aurillac’s historic town center back to life. In this exceptionally spacious locale, they set up four big and cozy bedrooms (with extra blankets, rugs, antique furniture and decorative details), with an ambiance that’s anything but monastic. You’ll find the same ultra-snug atmosphere downstairs in the candlelit living room area that includes a superb kitchen with brushed metal appliances, a big table d’hôte, vintage chairs, an industrial staircase, armchairs for reading and an immense fireplace. Double rooms starting at €150 a night (the third night is free). In the winter, you have to rent all four rooms together, which can accommodate up to 12 people.

TOILETRIES: Shower gel and shampoo made with natural ingredients, Jardin des Savons soap.
INTERNET: Wifi (free).
BREAKFAST: Included, with freshly baked breads (with five grains, écureuil bread with hazelnuts, walnuts and almonds), viennoiseries, artisanal jams, ham, cheeses, freshly squeezed orange juice, a compote of the day and a homemade muesli mix.
MINI-BAR: There’s an electric teapot and a selection of teas provided in the suites. And you can prepare your favorite hot drink in the communal kitchen.
LITTLE LUXURY: Upon request, a chef will come cook the meal of your choice, while Isabelle sets the table.
