Instead of weeks of planning and shopping, think about all that extra time you will have whilst others are running around like headless chickens or standing for hours in supermarket queues.

- See yourself sitting down before dinner, with a glass of something nice, feeling calm and relaxed, instead of rushing around in a hot kitchen worrying about whether the dinner will be okay.

Come and relax this Christmas in comfortable surroundings and leave the rest to us. Take a winter stroll in the gardens or nearby forest returning to a cosy log fire where you can sip an aperitif or two before dinner.

Our aim is to take out the stress of YOUR Christmas or New Year holiday. We offer a flexible package to suit the number of nights you wish to stay.

See our example below of our Christmas Getaway and New Year Celebration. Join us for a 4 day break with a for just €497 per person for the Christmas Getaway and €469 per person for the New Year Celebration.

Longer/shorter breaks also available at normal B&B rates - please contact us to discuss your package. Family group bookings also available.


Travelling in the Auvergne in December is normally very good. At La Platriere we get little snow, if any, which is quickly cleared by the local farming and town community so you needn't worry about the weather.
