Welcome to Auberge de Chabanettes

Boutique Hotel, Bar and Restaurant in the heart of Puy-de-Dome, the Auvergne and Livradois-Forez

Auberge de Chabanettes is a family-owned boutique hotel in the stunningly picturesque Puy-de-Dome department of the Auvergne, and nestled deep in the peaceful heart of the Livradois-Forez National Park. Here, you will find spacious and well-appointed bedrooms, an enchanting restaurant, a riverside terrace, plus our cosy, well-stocked Whisky Bar offering you a tantalising selection of artisan wines, single-malt whiskies, beers and spirits. Whether you are looking for a romantic break, a family holiday, a convenient hotel base to explore the Auvergne or just an easily accessible stay-over en route through central France, Auberge de Chabanettes offers you a warm welcome, unrivalled hospitality and a place to feel relaxed, all year round.

Owned and operated by award-winning UK hotelier, Tim Bell and his French fiancée Ingrid Boyer, Auberge de Chabanettes is a fully-licensed hotel offering five newly renovated and well-equipped bedrooms. Two double rooms, two spacious family rooms plus our very large and recently (2017) upgraded Superior Family Room, all of which offer you all the modern facilities and comforts you would expect from one of Puy de Dome and the Auvergne’s favourite and much-loved hotels.

With the capacity to sleep up to twenty people in total, this historic hotel is ideal for social and special interest groups, family reunions and celebrations, motorbike and classic car enthusiasts, cycling groups, indeed anyone who wishes to discover why the Auvergne is one of the world’s “Must-see” locations. The hotel’s easily accessible location to Clermont Ferrand, Issoire, Ambert and the A75 Autoroute also make it a convenient hotel choice for the corporate business traveller in the region.
