“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2006

Aaron and Amelia were most welcoming and provided me with limitless amounts of information about the surrounding area, which i found invaluable. The cooking was sublime and the ambience around the residence was relaxed and unhurried. I have stayed in a number of guest houses in the area, but since finding this place, i won't be venturing elsewhere. Book it now, as this place will be hard to get a reservation in once it becomes more well known!!

My wife and I stayed here for 5 nights in July 2006 and had a fantastic time. La Fromental is a picture perfect B&B in a beautiful unspoilt part of rural France.

Aaron and Amelia are excellent hosts - extremely friendly, can offer plenty of advice on activities/places to go and the food was superb !

There's lots to do in the area - with lakes to swim in, mountains to climb and numerous attractive towns and villages to amble around.

We'll be back....

During a 2000 mile tour of France La Fromental ranked above any of the so called 4-star hotels for friendliness,service and sheer relaxation. Amelia and Aaron were extremely helpful, the rooms were clean and modern, and breakfast and dinners around the family table were wonderful, both the food and the conversation.
The location is fairly remote but idyllic. You will need personal transport to visit it or to use it as a base to tour the area. We certainly will be going back.

The owners of La Fromental do all they can to make your visit as enjoyable as possible - nothing is too much trouble for them. You are made to feel relaxed the moment you step through the door. The rooms are clean, bright and fresh, and the cooking is not just very good, it is outstanding !!! The Auvergne is a stunning part of France. Very highly recommended.

Had an excellent time at La Fromental. The setting is lovely with amazing scenary and a snowy mountain back-drop. The weather was beautiful and so there was opportunity to sample the local wildlife and culture. Although it was April went to the mountains which was only 20 minutes away- the slopes were still open ! fantastic!
The guesthouse was ideal- we had the best nights sleep ever. very peaceful when you have come from the city. Amelia and Aaron were so friendly and helped us out on all the places to see and go. There were lots of homely touches around the place and the food was amazing - sitting down and eating with the hosts and other guests made for many fun nights.
I would recommend this place to anyone including familys or hen parties etc as its unlike any place ii've been to and there is plenty to do and see.
Will be returning soon!

The time we spent at La Fromental was memorable in every way. The initial reception by one of the owners picking us up from the airport was both warm and light hearted, making us feel immediately welcome. the drive down to the house was interesting with some spectacular veiws along the way. Aaron the gentlman that picked us seemed to know about the area and the activities that were taking place such as local markets, events and alike. upon arriving at the accomadation we were met by Aarons partener Amelia who was equally welcoming. the accomadation was set around the back of the property and the ammenities were to a very high standard, very clean and comfortable. The surrounding countryside is breath taking with plenty of lazy walks to fill your days, perfect for forgetting the problems of the daily hustle and bustle of city life. Both my wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our time at La Fromental, more so because the owners are truly nice people, Arron and Amelia make you feel like part of the family from the word go, our flights are already booked for next year, the perfect place to wind down, relax and realise what life is all about over a friendly beer or three or four. Missing the tanquil setting and the amazing sunsets can't wait to get back over there...
