Maison d’hôtes de La Verrière

Les Ardillats, Rhône
Bed & Breakfast

Magnificent valley views and hill walks from this welcoming family home high up in Beaujolais - and the best cuisine for miles


5 rooms


Rooms sleep 2 – 4


Hugging the edge of a beautiful valley in Beaujolais, the high views from nearly every room of this serenely secluded family home are magnificent. Whether waking in your quirky country bedroom, meeting guests at the breakfast table (sampling yogurt cake and nine homemade jams) or swimming in the natural salt pool among wild mountain flowers, the valley is always there – particularly beautiful in autumn. Grégoire’s guided walks start from the house. Both he and Christine love having guests to stay, and their French cuisine is so good (never the same dish twice) there’s no reason to dine anywhere else.

A very relaxing and beautiful place to stay. Excellent food and great hosts. We were able to take advantage of the swimming pool and would definitely go back.

Chris, Ipswich uk

a very warm welcome, we stayed two nights and had two very good dinners, breakfasts were a treat with homemade jams cakes etc. highly recommended


We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Our limited French was not a problem. Gregoires' use of local produce and his skills as a chef made the warm and comfortable stay complete. Both Christine and Gregoire are the perfect hosts. The views are spectacular. If you are coming to see the Beaujolais region then this is the place to stay. Cheers Rod & Isobel


We were made to feel very welcome by Christine and Gregoire - even the dog! The house is in a beautiful location and the rooms are very well presented. The meals cooked by former chef Gregoire were the highlight of our stay, from the wonderful duck and dauphinois at dinner to the home baked baguette and homemade jams for breakfast. We'll definitely be back!!


What a delightful place. Christine and Gregoire were very friendly and made for a very relaxing and enjoyable time. Highly recommended


Delightful place, owners very friendly Evening meal provided which was delicious
