My wife and 2 year old daughter I and our two friends stayed here for 3 nights and It was incredible! We were met with smiles and were welcomed into the lovely beautifully restored mansion. It's got a real authentic feel however it feels cosy and warm. We stayed in the French themed room which was quiet and relaxing. The shower was beautiful and the bed was divine.
The food was world class thanks to Cedrik and Alicia. We've experienced taste sensations we've never had before in any of our travels! Well worth the price paid!
The location is in a beautiful, quiet and friendly villiage. We felt relaxed, renewed and enjoyed the walks through the countryside.
The accommodation has friendly sheep, goats, chickens and a cat which is always entertaining...not to mention the ponds and goldfish. Perfect for our two year old. They have beautifully renovated the stable as an evening dining/relaxing area perfect for conversation or a night cap.
In summary this was a truly magical experience set in the heart of the countryside. We're so glad we got to see this part of the country and there is no doubt we'll return.

- I'm an old lady, over 400 years old, living in St Just-en-Chevalet, in the Loire in the Rhône-Alpes region of France.My old age means I have needed a facelift together with local artisans and architects of Bâtiments de France.I received Cedric and Alicia within my walls, which they have restored with the utmost care.There are 5 bedrooms including a duplex and a suite, each with their own organic bed linen, their en-suite bathrooms and WC. However, they have kept the historic atmosphere, which makes me a property out of the ordinary that allows you to travel through time. They have even thought about your vehicles with private indoor parking, enclosed shelter and workshop for motorbikes.Cedric and Alicia have provided wooden games to while away the time either in your room or in front of the fire in my cozy public rooms.Feel free to come and wander in my walled parkland, laze by the pond or discover my wildlife. ... more less
