Gites les Gigard

The Gites, Noisette Cottage and Rosier Cottage offer comfortable accommodation all with en-suite shower rooms and those little extras that we know help to make your stay enjoyable.

The Gites are recently renovated cottages, residing either side to our barn home, retaining the typical character, warmth and appeal of the region with beamed ceilings and very thick stone walls , double glazed windows and volets ( shutters) that create a wonderful cool interior during the Summer and cosy warmth during the cooler months.

The Gites each have their own patio area with garden furniture and access to large lawned areas with views over the open countryside.

The local area

The most northern of the Auvergne departments is Allier. Known for its diverse landscape - Forest of Tronçais,the largest oak plantation in Europe in the northeast, vineyards of Saint-Pourcinois at its centre.

The Sioule gorges to the south and the Bourbonnaise Mountains to the southeast reach heights of 1287m in the Puy de Montoncel.

The Allier is the most productive agricultural area of the Auvergne The region is very unspoilt and retains its distinct French character. Traffic is light, traffic jams something you leave behind!
