Bed and Breakfast Auvergne
The Chateau de Saint Saturnin is situated in the centre of a magnificent small Auvergne village which belongs to the Plus Beaux Villages de France Association. This residence, a former seigniory transformed into a bed and breakfast, dates back to the medieval era. This vast residence boasts beautiful spaces whose decoration combines authenticity with contemporary touches. The chateau has been completely restored and updated to today’s tastes, while retaining its original materials such as parquet floors, staircases, exposed beams and stone walls which help to preserve the historic character of the building.Online booking
