St Bonnet is a 6 Acre smallholding located in the heart of the Allier, Auvergne, France. It is a traditional farm house with attached barn/stables which historically was used to house cattle, pigs and donkeys. There is also a separate small outbuilding which was used as a dairy, had a bread oven and also an enclosed area that was used to house pigs. When we purchased St Bonnet in December 2012, the fields and the woods had not been used or maintained for over 15 years, the fields were overgrown and all the fencing had collapsed or non existent. The house and barns were totally neglected and run down, the house was in an appalling state with rising damp and dangerous decades old electrics and the barns were full of caked manure and straw mix on the floors. We quickly set about renovating the property and making everything safe and usable. The house and barn have a large garden which runs round all 4 sides of the property and there are several seating areas from where you can idle away your time just relaxing and watching the llamas in the fields, alternatively you could try something more energetic and play ball with the dogs. The garden and fields are all completely fenced using stock fencing and are safe for walking and exercising your own dogs should you wish to bring them with you, we ask you to read our Dog Ts & Cs Sue has a pottery business which can be found at www.creationsdesuzanne.co.uk, and guests are welcome to try their hand at pottery.Our land is split into three areas, a relatively flat upper field and a lower field which forms a small valley with deciduous woods to the sides and a faily densly wooded area with massive oak trees. The woods provide natural shade for the llamas during summer and act as a wind break during the winter, the hills provide an ideal place for the llamas to play chase during the long summer evenings when it is cool.The patio area is perfect for enjoying summer evenings with a glass of wine and food prepared on the BBQ whilst listening to the myriad of birds and other wildlife which live in the woods that border three sides of the farm.Thank you for visiting our web site, we hope you enjoy and benefit from the information and pictures provided for your pleasure.
