In the style of the region, owners have done everything possible to keep the original spirit of the farm building and they hope to help you enjoy a restful, peaceful yet exhilarating stay in this nice and comfortable home in the middle of a wooded and wild countryside. Located only 30 minutes away from Saint Etienne and one hour from Lyon, you will enter very french and authentic environment, yet furnished with all modern equipment: flat TV screen and DVD player in each rooms, private toilets and bathrooms, Internet access and nice furniture. Agnes will do her best to make you discover typical french breakfasts and regional dishes for dinner if whished. The house is in the middle of a large yard where you will enjoy the owners' pets (cats, dog, chickens, duck, goats...) And both owners speak english!

My wife and I spent three wonderful days in the country at Les Fermes du Chateau. We were made to feel as part of the family while being treated as premier guests. Breakfasts were typically French but were very plentiful. We ordered Table d'hote on two evenings and had wonderful meals and conversations with the owners. They accepted our limited French but both spoke perfect English. That should be an excellent benefit to language limited travelers. There is plenty to see and do near Les Fermes but each day you return to a quiet peaceful farming community.

Agnes and Francois are very friendly and helpful. Their home is delightful and comfortable in a beautiful country setting. We have no hesitation in recommending Les Fermes du Chateau.

This is a gem of a B & B in a quiet hamlet. It has recently been tastefully renovated and is immaculate. The gardens are lovely and well kept. Agnes is a delightfully personable woman who chatted with us and made us feel right at home. She went over and above our expectations with all the information and help she provided. We didn't dine at the B & B but given the service we received, I'm sure it would be a great experience. I heartily recommend this charming B & B for a pleasurable stay.

We were amazed at the warm and friendly amosphere at this place, and very much enjoyed the hospitality of our hosts, Agnes and Francois. We would come again in a heartbeat. The home, including the bedroom and the bathroom were done very well and made us feel comfortable and relaxed. The food was the best, and all homemade with care. Thank you both, for a very enjoyable stay!
