What specific architectural features does your building have ?
It is a house in lava stone with slate roofs that are of Templar origin. Over time a farmhouse and a barn were added. We have completely eco-rehabilitated the property, taking care not to denature it and preserve its soul. The latest work has given it a more contemporary feel while respecting the original style.
Places you would personally recommend
The site is bursting with nature! The area is covered with snow from December to April, meaning exciting expeditions across the Cézallier with a team of sled dogs is a must. Summer brings a more verdant and flowery landscape from May to August, making it ideal for fishing, horseback riding and mountain biking on the Pinatelle massif trails. During the Indian summer from September to October (the time of the deer slaughter) the forest explodes with a stunning array of colours. Beautiful open spaces are all around, along with the likes of the Puy Mary (a Cantal volcano classified as a 'Great Site of France). Little parts of heritage can also be found with wood ovens and chateaus scattered about, endearing craftsmen (potters, confituriers, organic bakers), and the unmissable "most beautiful villages in France" which include Salers, Tournemire, Blesle, Lavaudieu and the medieval village of Murat.
