Plans for the future 

When we discovered La Grande Combe in 1980 it was in a derelict state after 25 years of neglect.  We bought it in 1982 and have since then completely renovated the property, especially during the last 8 years.  It is now beautifully restored, offering exceptional accommodation suitable for a variety of activities.  For us now, after 28 years, the time has come to hand over the reins to a new owner.  Therefore our first step is to look for someone who will continue our work in providing a unique venue for residential seminars and training courses.  We welcome enquiries from all interested parties, and invite them to contact us directly.

Since 1997, we have been part of a cooperative (known as the “Aveyron Initiative”) with other local Dutch people who also run chambres d’hôte/gîtes. A walk, called “the French valleys tour”, has been mapped out between all our houses.

There is also a collective website under the name of “the nine vacation pearls”. See the websites.

We are also listed in two English guides by Alastair Sawday: the B&B Guide and the Hotel Guide. See the website.
