About the property

Farmhouse B&B in Bertignat, Auvergne, France - Warm Ambiance And Creative Cooking With Local Produce

La Brugiere is a sympathetically restored, stone French farmhouse. It is situated in a small rural hamlet, where we have created a peaceful ambiance both inside and outside in the large garden. We include breakfast and offer a reasonably priced evening meal. Our passion is for good organically grown local food, either from our own garden or from the market. We are well-placed for visiting the Auvergne, with it's stunning mountain scenery - where there are many museums and places of historic interest.

A very special place indeed

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here as a family with our two children aged 11 and 15, for one night, passing through on our return to the UK. Despite our short stay, La Brugiere has made a lasting impression on us. Sylvia and Tony have created an extremely special experience for their guests with a very personal feel to everything. It felt like visiting friends - Sylvia and Tony are warm and welcoming and we throughly enjoyed their company during the wonderful meal prepared for us that evening. the boys enjoyed the gardens and their chickens and ducklings, not to mention their gorgeous dog! They have two rooms which are beautifully decorated, with very comfortable beds. They explained that they renovated and extended the farmhouse several years ago and they have certainly done an amazing job! The area is very beautiful and we wish we could have spent more time there. We will certainly be back! Many thanks to Sylvia and Tony for such a wonderful time.
