The House

La Grande Combe lies in the “Parc naturel régional des Grands Causses” in the southern Aveyron. “Combe” means “hollow in the mountainside” and appears on the local “Carte de Cassini” as early as 1683. With their original flagstone floors and oak beams, the sitting room and dining room give a sense of the building’s age. The adjoining open kitchen forms the central part of the house. Preparing food is also an important part of our daily lives, and we strive for a high standard. The cosy library offers a diverse collection of books for a rainy day or long winter evenings by the open fire.

Guest accommodation

The attractively decorated rooms are named after the surrounding regions, such as Provence, Cevennes, Rouergue and Camargue, and have double or twin beds and en-suite facilities. Some rooms have a separate shared toilet. Some of the rooms are fitted with a kitchenette and can be rented as gîtes, such as the “Aubrac” studio. There is also the possibility of renting the adjoining room (for up to five people). Towels and bedlinen are provided for all guest accommodation.

Terraces and courtyard

La Grande Combe lies in a sheltered spot at the edge of a wood. Several terraces afford a magnificent view over the hills, and you can hear the stillness of nature. The intimate courtyard is ideal for a romantic candlelit evening accompanied by a glass of fine wine.

"La Grange"

The former barn, “la grange”, is located above the old sheep house. With its Gothic arches, this building exudes a cathedral-like atmosphere. With a total surface area of 145 square metres, “la grange” is well-suited to a wide range of activities and can be used throughout the year thanks to the underfloor heating. The Gothic arches imbue a certain intimacy, which means that even small groups will feel at ease. A huge open fire forms the focal point of this space. “La grange” is perfect for many activities, such as yoga, meditation, seminars, training courses, and family get-togethers.
