Renting a guest room in a former boarding school in Allanche (Cantal, Auvergne)
About this Guest house
A former boarding school converted into a bed and breakfast in Cantal
A simple but comfortable accommodation solution
Certainly you will not be welcomed in a home like the others! It is an unparalleled experience that we offer you to live in the north of Cantal. You have the opportunity to stay as long as you want in a guest room, set up in the heart of the former boarding school of the Sisters of Allanche. The establishment has of course undergone a careful renovation, so that it can embody a perfectly equipped accommodation solution, without giving up the charm that characterized the place since its construction. By stopping at L'Eau Berge - managed by owners Philippe and Mélanie - you can enjoy the comfort of a cozy nest while taking a real trip back in time. The room available here is on the 2nd floor, it has a double bed 180 X 190 cm and a bunk bed with two beds 80 X 190 cm. Period beds that recall the atmosphere of yesteryear, combined with recent bedding and excellent quality, it is good to specify. There is also a small desk, wardrobe and sink.
The view from the schoolyard
The toilets are on the landing and shared with the other guests of the accommodation.
An emblematic element of schools has found a second life, these are the old student lockers which now serve as storage spaces for the helmets of passing motorcyclists. Among the other common spaces is an old classroom converted into a beautiful dining room. In this living room, you have at your disposal, among other things, a fridge, a kettle and an espresso machine. Whether you stay one night or more time in Allanche, you also have the opportunity to share a delicious meal - made up of local products - concocted by Mélanie. In addition to the spaces mentioned above, there is a covered courtyard which hosts a comfortable lounge with table football and many games.
The schoolyard perched on the ramparts of Allanche will also offer you a pleasant viewpoint to relax after a nice hike or another activity.
The house has a total capacity of 15 people with the old dormitory and the room of the supervisor.
Do not hesitate to contact the owners for more information.
The built and natural heritage around our bed and breakfast
In our municipality, we distinguish among the important works the church of Saint-Jean-Baptiste, classified as a historical monument. Inside this fortified structure, you have the opportunity to contemplate pieces of furniture, statues and remarkable religious objects.
Then know that the surroundings of our original bed and breakfast in Allanche are full of grandiose natural sites. We are thinking, among other things, of the Roche-Grande viewpoint, from which visitors can enjoy a breathtaking view. To get away from it all with your loved ones, we also suggest that you stop off at the Veyrines waterfall, in the town of Landeyrat and at Lac de Lastioulles. Of course, other curiosities deserve to be discovered in the district of Saint-Flour and the territories that surround it. They can be found in particular in Condat (Servaire Museum, the ruins of the Abbey of Feniers), Blesle (Saint-Pierre church, Museum of the Headdress) and Massiac (Saint André church, Elise Rieuf Art Museum).
