Domaine Le BessetDomaine Le Besset is a pleasant and welcoming bed and breakfast / mini campsite situated in the green heart of France, in a quiet region of the Auvergne, department Puy de Dome.
The chambres d'hotes/B&B has four spacious, attractive rooms with a private shower and toilet, a living room with fireplace, TV and WiFi (only in july and august). The expansive grounds around the house include a landscaped garden with stunning views and a large swimming pool with pool house.
There is the possibility to enjoy home-cooked meals, with simple dishes made from local products. We serve it in in the garden when the weather is pleasant enough - if not, we serve it in the original dining room. A barbecue at the pool house can also be organised.
The chambre d'hotes/ B&B is located in a 150 year-old manor house and is situated in a rural area along a main road to the south, in a wooded area between the mountains, near a recreational lake. Clermont-Ferrand is the nearest international airport and 45 km away. The chambres d'hotes is situated in the medieval town of Thiers, with its steep streets. Thiers is known for its knife factories.
