You can stay in a holiday cottage for two persons, in the old pigsty. The cottage is situated on the first floor and measures 3 x 11m, without innerwalls except for the bathroom and the toilet. You'll find a sitting corner, a kitchenette, a bedroom corner and the bathroom with its walls in tadelakt (marocan plaster) and the dry toilet that's separated. There is a big balcony on the northside and a terrace on the west side (oh, these sunsets!).
The gîte can be hired as a holiday cottage. Bed linen and towels are not provided and we ask you to clean the cottage before your departure.
If you stay for a short period (maximum 4 days) we'll make up your bed and we provide you with towels. Also the cleaning at the end of your stay will be done. Of course, the price is not the same.
In the bedroom corner you'll find a double bed with a woolen matrass, pillows and also a woolen duvet, all made by Ardelaine. In the sitting corner the bench can be turned into a bed for one person.
In the kitchen part you find a superb granite sink, made locally by Philippe Marpillat, stone carver. There is also a induction hob, a microwave, a fridge and a boiling kettle.
In the sitting part there are two rocking chairs around the firestove and a bench, that can be used as a one person bed. The specific beauty of this part is the door towards the balcony with the stained glasses that show the pig of the pigsty and the view over the village Egliseneuve des Liards.
In the bathroom there is even a sitting bath. And a sink, a shower in the bath and, separatedly, a dry toilet. The plaster of the walls are a beauty here: made of tadelakt, a marocan plaster, so soft! The lamps and the mirror are made by a ceramist artist.
We empty the dry toilet everyday for you.
At the entry of the building in the West there is a small terrace. You also have a big balcony on the north side. The entrace to the cottage is either at the westside at the groundfloor or on the northside at the balcony and the stainedglass door (as we are on a slope, one has accès to the balcony from behind, without any stairs).
350€ per week (the cottage is rented from 4 days onwards). Linnen is not provided. The cleaning is done before your arrival, thanks for doing it before departure.
It is possible to rent the cottage as a room for shorter periods, at 85€ the night for two (100€ if you stay for only one night). On the calendar one can see when this is possible. For this shorter stays the linen is provided and the cleaning at the end will be done by us.
You might want to take breakfast (7€50 pp) eand / or evening meal (20€) at the guesthouse, even half-pension (26€ pp) or you might want to be totally on your own in the cottage.
You can hire the banya (russian sauna) for 60€ / 55 doumes for two persons.
The cottage is totally renovated in an ecological way. You find a wall with hemp and lime, another is with stones and insulated from the outside with lime and hemp. The tiles are made in the Puy de Dôme.
We want to work as locally as possible, so the roof, the staircase, the granite sink and the stained glass are all made less than 10km from the guesthouse.
The cottage is woodheated, with a solar heater for the hot water.
There is a dry toilet in the cottage where one uses sawdust instead of water. You'll see: no smells, the sawdust covers all. We empty the bucket for you, on a specially dedicated compost heap.
