What a great find was the Auberge d'Aijean in the small village of Lavigerie and the last Maison d' hôtes on the way to Puy Mary, the highlight of any trip in Cantal and one of the most scenic volcano in Auvergne. The hosts were a tiny bit cold at the outset but eventually warmer when we decided to stay... More

If you stay here be aware this is an Auberge - not a b&b.. it is a restaurant first and foremost, with wonderful food and very romantic atmosphere, with some very clean but very basic rooms upstairs.

The Auberge d'Aijean is a hamlet of about 100 people in the Cantal, a mountainous and remote area of France. We stayed there for 2 nights, and I have a feeling we will be back at some point for more. The Auberge has only 6 rooms - ours was on the top floor under the eaves, with a large comfortable... More
