Combining romantic charm, peace and tranquility with warm hospitality and fabulous food, LA BELLE AME is an experience you won`t forget.
....."FOOD FOR THE SOUL"
......... a dream of retiring to rural France..... We found our dream in the heart of the Combrailles, a magical place with a beautiful soul... and so began the journey to our boutique B&B........ In 2015 we started the restoration and renovation of La Belle Ame. We welcomed our first guests in 2016 and are now proud to offer three exclusive, character rooms each set individually within our lovely gardens.
Built in 1851, La Belle Âme comprises a stone farmhouse and outbuildings which have been renovated and converted into three unique, and individually designed chalets, a cosy dining room and lounge area. Each room is set in the garden with it`s own private entrance.

We had a wonderful (all too short) stay at La Belle Ame. The Bake house is a perfect little retreat and the countryside is beautiful. You have thought of everything and the meal was incredible! Thank you,
