A La Campagne Nature Tranquillity Space

A true paradise for nature lovers, peace and quiet, walkers, cyclists and other bon vivants !
A place where your dog is welcome. (free of charge.)
Stay in an authentic and detached cottage on one of the most beautiful spots in the area, not far from the cosy village of Pionsat.
Magnificent views from the house and garden over the hills, grass and cornfields and woods.

The cottage is located at the end of a tiny hamlet, at the beginning of a dirt track with centuries-old chestnut trees.
This path leads directly to a large forest, the Bois de Pionsat. (Maps of the region available)

Country cottage Chez L'Arbre is about 60km from the volcano after which the department is named,
the 'Puy de Dome'.
The region is called Pays des Combrailles. Winding roads, charming villages, Romanesque churches, vast forests, hills and (volcanic) lakes characterise this region.
Pays des Combrailles borders France's largest regional nature park, the ancient volcano-covered
'Parc Naturel Regional Volcans d'Auvergne'.

The area is perfect for hiking, touring, sporty cycling and mountain biking.
Weekly markets in Pionsat, St. Gervais d'Auvergne, Eloy les mines.

Restaurants, food & wine

St.Pourcain, Boudes, Chateaugay with its excellent wines, Cuvée Brin d'Amour by Gaec Bonjean, for example, really fantastic! Small but excellent wine regions!
The Auvergne has 5 cheeses with the new label AOP, Appellation d'Origine Protégée,
Le Bleu d'Auvergne, le Cantal, la Fourme d'Ambert, le Saint-Nectaire and le Salers.
In St.Maigner you can eat a good meal of the day. Honest and tasty. In Pionsat there is a hotel-restaurant, in St. Gervais several. There are several specialty restaurants in the area but you will find almost everything in the culinary field in larger cities at 30 to 60 minutes. Montlucon, Riom, Clermont-Ferrand.


You start of course with doing nothing, getting fresh baguette in the morning, having breakfast and watching and listening to the birds of prey. Here you take your distance from all the hustle and bustle around you. The perfect place to relax, read books or maybe start writing, listen to or make music, get inspiration and more...whatever you want! From the house you can walk into the Bois de Pionsat, but take your GPS / compass with you ... otherwise you might get lost ... Mountain bike fans ... beware! many VTT routes!
Villages Pionsat, St.Maigner, and St.Gervais at 2 to 10 (car) minutes.
