Chambres d'Hote  


Combining romantic charm, peace and tranquility with warm hospitality and fabulous food, LA BELLE AME is an experience you won`t forget. 



......... 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.

Mérite de se perdre pour trouver cette superbe chambre d'hôtes.
Caroline nous a accueilli avec chaleur dans son domaine, elle nous a installé dans le gite où nous avons passé 3 jours de rêves ! Le cadre est chaleureux, calme appelant à se ressourcer. Même si le temps n'était pas au beau fixe, le paysage était magnifique.
Nous avons pu profiter de la table d'hôtes où Caroline nous a concoctés des plats dignes de grands restaurants, j'ai même pu repartir avec la recette de son dessert !
Nous reviendrons sûrement lui rendre une visite car ce fut notre plus beau début de vacances !

Worth getting lost to find this superb bed and breakfast.
Caroline warmly welcomed us in her domain, she installed us in the cottage where we spent 3 dream days! The setting is warm, calm calling to recharge your batteries. Although the weather was not good, the scenery was beautiful.
We were able to enjoy the table d'hôtes where Caroline concocted us dishes worthy of great restaurants, I was even able to leave with the recipe for her dessert!
We will surely come back to visit him again because it was our best start to the holiday!

Caroline has a diverse background in PR and hospitality.  With a passion for travel and Cookery, she opened a business catering for corporate and social events.   She now cooks from the heart preparing dishes inspired by her many travels and  from the different countries the family have lived in.



Anton graduated as an Electrical Engineer and has an MBA. He looks forward to retiring soon and to becoming the full time "handyman" at La Belle Ame.  Anton, is  always on hand to help where needed.



The third member of the team is little Lucky Boy, who is always around and loves everybody. He's not much help in the kitchen or garden, but is great company to both Caroline, Anton and all their guests.
