THE STORY: At the center of the Auvergne department, smack dab in the middle of metropolitan France, you’ll find the adorable village of Chadeleuf. On land that’s been dotted with dormant volcanos for thousands of decades, Le Clos Dagobert made its home: a former winery that dates back to the 1850s, lovingly renovated by Marine Raphanel, a former neuroscientist. Each piece was carefully chosen by the owner, who has taken great care to preserve the soul of the house and its original materials, including copper and volcanic stone. The result? A clever mix of antique furniture with bright hues and authentic architecture, from the pink kitchen located on the ground floor to the four bedrooms on the third floor (pastel walls, stonewashed hemp linens, private bathrooms), as the second floor is the owner’s private quarters. If you’re looking for a breath of fresh air, you’ll find it here! Double rooms starting at €120 a night.
BREAKFAST: Included, with coffee or tea, bread, viennoiseries from the village, yogurts, artisanal jams, cakes, waffles, homemade pancakes and cookies, local cheese and charcuterie…
TOILETRIES: Solid shampoo and soap made in the village.
LITTLE LUXURY: Taking the famous Auvergne cheese route and winding along it until you reach the village of Saint-Nectaire, a mere 15 minutes from the house… for a cheesy excursion!
