“Wonderful hosts, quiet location”
Reviewed 11 May 2013

Had a lovely time at Altamica, which was our base for exploring the Puy-de-Dome area. The hosts were very accommodating of our later-than-typical-French schedule. Catherine was also very observant of our preferences--for example, she thoughtfully brought more homemade rhubarb jam when she saw that we decimated it the prior morning. She was very patient with my basic French, and generally interesting to chat with. The rooms are nicely updated with trendy decor, and guests have access to a small exercise room as well as the shared breakfast room. For some reason, we did not find the bed to be very comfortable. Also, we found it awkward that the toilet room was so far away from the sink/shower room (this is odd for most Americans). The small town of Cournon d'Auvergne is very sleepy at night, but it is easily accessible to Clermont-Ferrand if one seeks more dining/culture options.

Altamica, and its owners are brilliant! We had a bad experience in Clermont Ferrand before our arrival, and the owners listened to our story. We had a refreshment whilst they rang a superb restaurant and booked a table for us. This is a superb bed and breakfast set up in high fashion style by a very caring couple. Everything about the rooms seems perfect, and I cannot and would not want to criticise this wonderfully restored B & B. Do take the opportunity to visit if you can!

A wonderful spot albeit a little off the beaten track. Great size rooms and decor very tasteful. Spotlessly clean too. Breakfast with homemade yogs and jams. Very welcoming hosts who love the region and are full of recommendations about the local area. I would certainly head back here, though I'm not sure I would take my three young children as they would shatter the peace and quiet!
