We discovered a bed and breakfast and unusual accommodations to start the day
We’ve been warmly greeted at la Maison Bleue à Arquian by the owner, who had prepared a typical breakfast with homemade products. We went on with the visit of her guest house. It consists of 3 bedrooms in the main house and there’s a small dependency in a beautiful landscaped garden.
Then we went to le Domaine des Galants in Saint-Vérain. Here in the woods we’ve found four cozy nests, unusual accommodations perched in the trees.It is a magical place for everyone as it enables you to sleep in the heart of nature in a very comfy way. Breakfast is brought to you 6 meters above the ground on the house terrace.

In the early afternoon we went to “la Poèterie” at St Sauveur. This industrial wasteland of a former brick and tiling factory (Mativet’s then Aléonard’s) became an artist village in 2006. It is also a welcome centre and tourist residency. There are 2 lodgins with 13 rooms in all, and a large reception room. In the same time, we discovered Le Café de la Poèterie. It’s a meeting place for artists run by an association. It’s goal is to revitalise the rural environment and to promote cultural diversity through a variety of programs.
