Additional Information

Spring Cottage has three bedrooms; two on the first floor with a double bed and twin beds respectively, and one on the ground floor with twin beds. Each bedroom has its own private WC and full length shower.It has a fully equipped kitchen with a large dining table. From the windows you have views of green meadows and rolling country side, and you may often see deer coming down to the lake to drink in the early morning or evening.

The spacious, cool and comfortable lounge has the unusual feature of local stone walls containing in-bedded fossilised sponges from a past era.French doors lead from the lounge onto a terrace bordered by a rock garden filled with flowers to attract a multitude of butterflies. Enjoy an aperitif on the teak sun lounges, followed by 'al fresco' dining at the patio table with sun shade
The ground floor was originally the manger, stables and winery. It has now been converted into 4 double and one single bedroom. Each bedroom has its own private WC and full length shower.

The first floor, which used to be the hay loft, has been converted into 2 double bedrooms, with two fully equipped kitchens and a large lounge which opens onto a full length balcony for ‘al fresco’ dinning and relaxing in full shade.A spacious terrace adjoins the Grange, for those guests who wish to relax in the sun. It has a pergola fitted with a semi-shading canopy for those who prefer to avoid the full sun.

Our yoga guests often have specific diets, and so it would be difficult to offer a daily meal suitable for everyone. Consequently, we operate on a self-catering basis, so guests can cook according to their individual needs, and eat at times convenient to their daily schedules. It also means that they can enjoy eating out at the numerous local restaurants, as and when they wish.

Guests have the use of 3 spacious kitchens, each equipped with an oven, hob, microwave, fridge and freezer.We provide basic supplies for your arrival day... tea, coffee, milk, juice, bread, cheese, pâté, biscuits, honey, fruit and, of course, a bottle of wine!

On Sunday morning, if you are without a car, we will take you to our nearest town, Le Mas d’Azil, so you can shop at the two supermarkets. On Wednesday morning, we will take you again, so you can explore and enjoy its weekly market.

Le Mas d'Azil, is only 5 miles away through an amazing natural grotto, and many of our guests also enjoy visiting it by bike. As well as supermarkets, it has a butcher, baker, patisserie, chemist, newsagent and a bank with cash machine. Both supermarkets have a section exclusive to organic produce (which the French call 'Bio' or 'Eco' produce)

There are also two restaurants, a cafe and a good pizzeria for take-away or dine-in.Local Village Shops,Just a 10 minutes cycle away, you can buy delicious fruit pies from the renowned Croustardes de Clermont, baked daily in their traditional wood-fired oven. In the next village, Maury, there is a delicatessen specialising in delicious regional products.

The traditional French 'Plât du Jour' or 'Menu du Jour', offered every weekday by most restaurants and cafes, must be one of the best value meals anywhere. A single course 'Plât du Jour' can cost just 7 Euros, and the 'Menu du Jour', a 3 course lunch, sometimes including wine and coffee, from as little as 9 Euros!

There are numerous good restaurants in the locality to choose from; smart town restaurants, mountain valley restaurants with terraces overhanging fast flowing rivers and tiny converted village farmhouses. We have sampled many of these and can advise.
