Geneste Petite Grange gite

Welcome to our holiday cottage in the Auvergne

A former barn, converted into a lovely holiday home

Geneste Petite Grange was originally part of an ancient farm complex and when we bought it, it was in a state of almost total disrepair. Now lovingly restored and tastefully converted and furnished (all work carried out by us over a decade or so), it has been transformed into spacious and comfortable holiday accommodation for four, and has been awarded a 3-star "Meublé Touristique" rating.

A peaceful gite in southern Allier, central France

Set in the heart of rural France, surrounded by mountains, hills, secluded valleys, woods, rivers and wildlife and reached by wonderfully quiet roads, Geneste is an ideal base from which to explore local places of interest or simply enjoy the French countryside. The perfect place in which to relax and unwind.

A warm welcome

We like our guests to feel welcome and at home your hosts as soon as they arrive. Our policy is to be friendly and helpful (most people appreciate having English-speaking owners on site), but not intrusive - we respect the privacy of our visitors at all times.

Geneste Petite Grange celebrates our love of wood, craftsmanship and attention to detail. It has its own secluded and private terraces, but it also gives us great pleasure to share with our visitors the mature landscaped gardens which we have created from the wooded hillside.

Some comments from our visitors' book:

'Stunning, sensitive renovation'
'Perfect setting, perfect hosts'

'Felt at home as soon as we arrived'
'Wonderful birds and wildlife'
