Tuesday Holiday Snap (whoops bit late!)

When we had our house in France we often went off for short breaks and there was one time when we decided to visit the Auvergne.  I have this wonderful book called - Chambre d’hotes secretes : Pres de 300 maisons et petits hotels en France - (a must if you love visiting beautiful houses) so while we were driving down I phoned my chosen B & B but unfortunately it was full but she recommended a friend who had just started doing B & B, and weren’t we lucky.  It was near a town called Montlucon on the outskirts of the village Neris Les Bains. Chateau de Perassier was a lovely find and Sophie the owner was delightful. What do you think!
Fabulous room!

Love the table!

Sumptious silk curtains

Breakfast on the terrace

A lovely find

Eventually we made it to the Auvergne - stunning scenery! and we also found another lovely b & b but I will save that for another time!


  1. wow. what a lovley place to stay.
    I will look for that book you recommened..

  2. Oh Jill, this place is wonderful. We travel a lot to France and I will certainly bookmark this for future stays if we find ourselves in the Auverne. The round tower glimpsed in one of your photos is reminiscent of our friends' house with whom we stayed. Such character.

    You must miss your house in France.


  3. So elegant, somehow not me but I can appreciate it all the same.

  4. Hi Jill, found your blog through your comment on Armoire de Camille (lovely blog and lovely shop !). Thank you for your nice comment on my guest house, le 33. Hope to have the chance to welcome you here ! Kiss

  5. Hi Jill - it looks lovely! Some of my most memorable holidays have been stumbling accross the most magnificent Chambre d'hotes down a dusty track. You never know what you might find when you follow the sign. We've ended in farmhouses to magnificent Chateaux - but always a pleasant suprise. Thanks for sharing your photos. x

  6. Merci beaucoup Jill d'avoir apprécié et laissé un message sur mon blog. Je suis toujours touchée par le geste.
    Votre blog est également très joli et j'en serai une fidèle désormais.

  7. What a find. I also have the book and use it all the time.

  8. C'est une bien jolie adresse Jill !!!
    Tes photos expriment si bien la beauté, la sérénité de l'endroit.
    Belle soirée.


Thank you for your lovely words
