Ferme du Planet, Beaujolais
Holiday Accommodation for Beaujolais Walking Holidays
This charming B&B is located in the Beaujolais region of France and is used (subject to availability) for several nights during our guided walking holiday Beaujolais Discovery and on the first and last night of our independent walking holiday - High Beaujolais Hills
The Ferme du Planet is located in peaceful surroundings in the heart of rural France in an elevated position overlooking the village of Ouroux in the northern Beaujolais. It is a magnificent setting to relax, take in the views and forget about life back home. Its location in the heart of the French region of the high Beaujolais means that it is an ideal base for a few days for our guided walking holidays.
Valérie and Laurent will give you a warm French welcome to their small guest house in the Beaujolais. And what a guest house. An old farmhouse, its amazing reconversion to a small B&B took the best part of 7 years. The result is stunning for those who love authenticity and character. This is not to say that the farm is no more. Far from it, in fact. Valerie runs the small holding of 19 hectares, with the help of her husband Laurent, who is a vet, and their two children, which includes the full range of farm yard animals including cows, donkeys, horses, chicken, geese etc.
The Ferme du Planet is a guest house full of character, perfect for welcoming guests on our French walking holidays. Wood, stone tiles and lots of original features adorn the downstairs common areas and the rooms. Each room has its own character and name depicting parts of a farm. The result is one which leaves you in no doubt that you are somewhere different and unique. Comfortable, yet original, this small guest house is a relaxing place to stay. Its setting on a valley side also means that from the comfort of your chair or sun lounger you can enjoy the beautiful views of the Beaujolais hills whilst enjoying your coffee or glass of Beaujolais. A patchwork of fields leads from the valley floor to the forest covered ridges of the Beaujolais hills. It's the perfect spot to relax after a day's walking and exploring.
Breakfast is a chance to enjoy local breads and jams, all made on the farm, and will set you up nicely for your day's walking. They provide delicious evening meals, with a lot of the ingredients coming from the garden. You can try a number of local regional dishes as well as some classic French meals. Dishes are simple yet very tasty, accompanied by local wine and chunky bread made in their own bread oven which adorns the dining room. During your meal, your hosts will take great pleasure in giving you insights into the Beaujolais region and much much more. You may well be sharing the large dining table with other guests from all over the world, often walkers, adding to the fun and interest. Wine provided with the four course meal helps the evenings to tick along nicely. An open fire rounds off the ambience.
The Ferme du Planet is a favourite guest house on our guided walking holiday in the Beaujolais as well as on our self-guided tour in the northern Beaujolais.
