It was in 1995 that Jean-Patrick LE GUEHENNEC, an architect by training, business manager, living and working in the Clermont area, had the idea of ​​a tourist accommodation project in the west of Livradois.

He looked for a property to restore with high potential, including:

a large, shared living area,

a panoramic view

a preserved environment,

an original building, not disfigured by clumsy renovation,

The mayors and real estate agencies of an area of ​​around fifty municipalities were interviewed and 38 sites were visited.

Without hesitation, the choice fell on an opportunity that fully corresponded to this search:

A complex of three houses with many outbuildings: barns, stables, pigsty, bread oven, etc., unoccupied for more than 30 years.

As and when their owners died: a house and outbuildings in 2007, two houses, their outbuildings and a barn in 2014, where added to the site.

Over the course of 25 years, major building work has been undertaken: renovation of facades, frames, roofs, floors, openings, improvements in comfort: central heating, sanitary facilities, electrical installation, fitted kitchens, etc.

This complex is now made up of 8 independent houses and several shared areas: communal kitchens and dining rooms, boiler rooms, laundry rooms.

As the work was completed, 6 gites were opened for rent, and Gîtes de France gave a certification of 3 épis (ears of corn) for 5 of them:

the HEREST, LILOTTE and MOQUINE gites, in 2006

the MAJES gite, in 2009

the JEPATAN gite, in 2017

the NAOLE gite in 2021

as well as :

the JEPHOS communal space, in 2021

A second communal space and a reception office will complete this complex in 2022 and 2023.
