Our unique bed and breakfast (Chambre d'hôte et pas un Gîte) Aux Jardins des Thévenets is a love story on many levels. Lynn, South African by birth, met Olivier, a French graphic artist in Paris where she worked on Franco-South African relations in the artistic field. The couple moved to Auvergne in order to pursue their dreams of restoring a bed and breakfast.
This was the Aux Jardins des Thévenets, a five bedroom 17th century home from home surrounded by 9 hectares of woods and fields all organically managed.
Its a magical sort of place, one made for escaping the city stress, and if youre into great food thats a further plus point for a stay here. Fantastic wines, starters and main courses mixing local fresh produce with an exotic south african touch
The renovation we mentioned was painstaking but truly worth it and included installing en-suite bathrooms in each of the bedrooms. Mixing french and south african artists in the old manor house. Shabby Chic !
One of the outbuildings that housed horse-drawn carriages in the 19th century was transformed into a beautiful pool area where exhibitions are held every summer
All these and other touches have produced an end result that can be described as a great mix of genteel atmosphere and luxury, inside and outside the house, whether the immediate surroundings or further afield. The spa town of Vichy is only ten minutes away.
Youll withdraw from this world fall in love with the peace and quiet
