Authentic Auvergnate house, built in 1788, in the heart of a small hamlet located in the March Valley at the foot of Puy Mary (Cantal). We did upstairs, a very comfortable, spacious and warm bedroom where you can recharge your batteries between 2 hikes or excursions. Bathroom and toilet, shared with us, are on the ground floor in the semi-built part of the house.
Many hiking trails leave from the valley. We can advise you on the season.

The space
It's a former rural building where our neighbors still made cheese until the '80s. In fact, it has a beautiful vaulted cellar where the cheeses were old and a small milk tank entirely made from stone.
We are renovating it step by step, making sure to keep it as much as possible in its "juice". The interior walls are whitewashed or straw earth. The floor of the main room is still large slabs of volcanic stone. The roof is in basalt. The house is mainly wood-heated with a stove in the main room and a stove in the downstairs bedroom. A cantou (large Auvergnate fireplace in which you can stand) adorns the large room.
The proposed bedroom is upstairs. It is large and bright. It is heated by the wood burning stove in the bedroom below. An extra heater is also available. Note that for the night, our grandmas' bedroom pot is offered !
The bathroom, all stone, with shower and old clog bath, is downstairs, in a vaulted and semi-built part, illuminated by a small window. It is heated by a sectional radiator.
The house is located in a small hamlet at an altitude of 800 m, in the middle of a very beautiful valley that descends from Puy Mary.

Where you’ll be

Le Vaulmier, Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes, France

We love this place for the vast spaces that overlook the valley. In addition, the valley is beautiful in all seasons. We enjoy summer and winter and make long stays every season where we enjoy welcoming guests in the most user-friendly way possible. We are happy when we made them want to come back!
Multiple activities are possible in summer and winter. Visit the Pays de Salers website. Numerous hiking trails with departure in the valley. At 12 kms, small cross-country ski resort at 1200 m altitude, with groomed slopes and rental of skis and snowshoes during school holidays, if snow conditions allow. But outside of school holidays we can lend you our snowshoes.

Mon mari, Rémi, et moi sommes un couple de retraités. Nous habitons Le Havre depuis notre jeunesse. Nous voyageons avec Airbnb depuis 2013 et recevons chez nous depuis mars 2017. Nous aimons les rencontres et ces expériences de voyageurs et d'hôtes sont enrichissantes.
Nous proposons aussi, quand nous y sommes, une chambre dans notre maison de vacances près du Puy Mary dans les environs de Salers dans le Cantal.
La maison proposée en Normandie est celle de ma mère. Elle n'y habite plus, mais en profite encore lorsque nous y sommes.
