Le clos des pierres rouges - Bed & breakfast - Holidays & weekends in Saint-Privat-d'Allier

Wedged on a mountainside in a small village of 35 souls authentic Auvergne, the closed red stones is a former farmhouse completely renovated in 2009 which offers very comfortable cottages. The marriage of the old with the contemporary structure gives a lot of elegance and refinement. The location of the Clos des Pierres Rouges is an asset : at the crossroads of the path of Saint Jacques de Compostela, picturesque gorges of the Allier and the route of the Beast of Gevaudan. For leisure, many options are available : the Allier 7 km is a paradise for fishermen, sports fans of white water or bathing. The area is also ideal for picking mushrooms (the owners will advise you). Hikers can enjoy the advice of the owner to arrange their travels.   Finally, with regard to the pleasures of the snow, 5 km is the site's northern Vernet where you will find trails cross country skiing and will have the opportunity to practice snowshoeing. In summary, in all seasons, you'll have a good reason to stay at the Clos des Pierres Rouges...

Must return soon! Should have stayed longer than 4 nights
We had a fabulous 4 night stay with the most wonderfully welcoming hosts, Thierry et Sylvie Grumelart, who made all their guests feel like old friends gathered together for a holiday meal. We enjoyed Sylvie's superb cooking each evening, truly a must. Thierry, fluent in English, provides excellent advice on touring tailored to his guests' particular interests: outdoor sports, art and history, etc. Location is perfect for visiting Le Puy-en-Velay, Polignac, Arlempdes and many other sites along the Allier river. The setting as well as the beautifully renovated and decorated house makes every moment one of total relaxation. Very good value.

Fantastic Bed & Breakfast
We had a fantastic stay @Le Clos des Pierres Rouges. Sylvie et Thierry were perfect hosts and the accommodation was simply superb. We also booked for evening meals which were terrific and well worth the extra cost. We could only highly recommend this location to anyone.

Perfect hosts, perfect house/surrounding
After many stays in France the first one with no suggestions for improvements! From the very first moment we felt a very warm welcome. My girlfriend and I arrived late, they waited for us with dinner. Sylvie is a fantastic cook! The old house located on the verge of a quiet, small village has been renovated in a perfect balance. Modern, but respecting the old walls. Perfect bedroom with wonderful bed, big modern bathroom (a working shower for once...). Terrace only for this room with a couple of deck-chairs (that´s on the picture where the roof sticks out a bit in the middle). Needless to say everthing really clean. Breakfast plentyful and best quality with local and selfmade products. We travel a lot on our motorbikes and always try to find a chambre or something similar by chance, so we get to see many different places and also different categories. The day before we even stayed in a 'remise', an old stable, for free. But staying at Pierre Rouges, although more expensive (not surprisingly: -)), was definitely the best value for money! Next time we are anywhere near, Sylvie and Thierry will surely be first call, and also (although we otherwise never do) we will book early to make sure we can stay with them. A very strong recommendation!

A very special place
Thank you, Sylvie and Thierry for a wonderful stay. We cannot think of anything that could be improved. The house was beautiful and spotlessly clean. We were given a very warm welcome and the food was delicious. It was also good value for money. It is the first time that we have stayed somewhere and the family have joined us for dinner - we felt like very special family guests!
