This charming B&B is located in the Puy de Dome in the northern Auvergne region of France and is used (subject to availability) for several nights during our guided walking holiday - lakes, volcanoes and historic villages and on our independent walking holiday.

The Domain de Goulandre is located in peaceful surroundings in the heart of rural France on an elevated plateau at about 900m in altitude in the parish of Saint Sauves, to the north of Bourboule. Its location in the heart of the French region of Northern Auvergne not far from Mont Dore means that it is ideal for walking holidays with good access to both the chain of volcanic cones to the north and the Puy de Sancy region to the South. Here Christiane and Daniel will give you a warm French welcome to their small guest house.

The Domaine de Goulandre used to be an old farmhouse and barn and has now been lovingly restored to create an authentic guest house full of character, perfect for welcoming guest on our French walking holidays. Wood, stone tiles and lots of original features and historic rural artifacts adorn the downstairs common areas. The Domain de Goulandre has five individually decorated rooms with twin or double beds. The B&B is located in a hectare of private grounds with a patio providing the perfect spot to relax after a day's walking and exploring.

Breakfast is a chance to enjoy local breads and jams and will set you up nicely for your day's walking. They provide delicious evening meals where you can try a number of local Auvergne dishes, such as Truffade, wonderfully prepared by Christiane. During your meal, your hosts will take great pleasure in giving you insights into the Auvergne region and much much more. There is never a dull moment with Christiane and Daniel recounting funny stories in their unique friendly style. You may well be sharing the large dining table with other guests from all over Europe, often walkers, adding to the fun and interest. Wine provided with the four course meal helps the evenings to tick along nicely.

The Domaine Goulrandre is a favourite guest house on both our guided and independent walking holidays in the Puy de Dome region of the Auvergne.
