Presentation of the cottage


Entrée côté rue

The cottage is located in a hamlet in the town of Montmorin in the regional natural park of Livradois-Forez in the department of Puy-de-DĂ´me (altitude: 500 meters).

The hamlet is made up of about ten houses. A communal oven that we light about once a year is available to all the inhabitants of the hamlet.

3 minutes from Billom and all its amenities (2 supermarkets, swimming pool, banks, post office, pharmacies, doctors, ...).

The Billom Tourist Office will be able to guide you in the discovery of this multi-faceted territory.

Clermont Ferrand, our Auvergne capital is 30 minutes away, and it will take you 25 minutes to discover Thiers.








Entrée côté rue

The building dates from the end of the 19th century. It consisted of several stables as well as the barn (the dwelling house of the peasant owner of this barn was opposite).

The gîte was therefore originally a stable. The 55 m² of this space were completely restored in 2014.
The renovation was carried out using natural products:

  • Cellulose wadding and wood fiber insulation
  • Stone wall jointed with lime, in solid oak or in Fermacell plate
  • homemade paint based on lime and pigments (plus some natural ingredients kept secret)
  • stone floor


The gîte is located on the ground floor of our house (window and door in the photo opposite). It is on one level and is equipped to accommodate up to 6 people.

The cottage is composed of a bedroom, a fitted kitchen, a living room / lounge, 1 bathroom, 1 shower, 1 WC.

The configuration is as follows (see photos by clicking here) :

  • a bedroom with 4 beds (2 bunk beds (90cm) + either 2 single beds (90cm) or 1 bed of 180cm)
  • a sofa / double bed in the living room (140 cm)

For everyone's comfort, we ask that you do not smoke inside.

Outside, on the garden side, you have access to a closed relaxation area.
The well dating from the 1940s, which had been closed by large stone slabs, was reopened in 2010. A metal grid guarantees safety, especially for the youngest.



Two inputs/outputs are possible :

  • Street side with several places to park (photos top right)
  • Garden side (photo opposite, in 3rd position) (pedestrian entrance only and access to the garden)



Our hens (called "hens" ;-)) and our cat "truffette" will give you the warmest welcome.

But because of their presence in freedom we are not able to accommodate your animals.
