Our services... to serve you!

At B&B l'élémentaire, (P)LEISURE is of the utmost importance: mealtimes in a relaxing atmosphere, hiking tours in the middle of nature, making kids enjoy their stay.

In order to reduce as many daily worries and practical questions as possible, we 'd like to present our extensive services:


family rooms

You may expect full hotel service, but with a more familiar touch. We check your room every day for fresh towels etc. In the lounge, you will find a bar with coffee, tea etc. Breakfast is serverd between 8.30 and 10 o'clock, exceptions possible upon demand.

Table d'hôte/Dinner

dinner amongst guests

4 times a week we offer the possibility to join us for dinner at the table d'hote. We serve apetizers, entrée, main course, cheese ,dessert, coffee or tea.

Jacuzzi and ayurvedic massages

Enjoy your stay to the fullest in the middle of nature! During daytime, or under a fenomenal starry sky, enjoy the relaxing massage of the jacuzzi in a quiet corner of the garden. Its large capacity of 6 provides many different massage positions. Enjoy, and try out each seat!


In order to restore the balance of mind and body, we propose to you our ayurvedic massages. After an intense and elaborate course, Ulrike is proud to propose full body massages to restore your energy flows.


When you're out hiking or biking, we can provide picknick baskets. After breakfast, you leave with a backpack filled with bread, a salad, some cheese, water, yoghurt, fruit, biscuit etc etc. You wish to add a bottle of wine, or you have special wishes? Let us know in due time, and we prepare it for you! 

Rental of mountainbikes and e-bikes

The Auvergne is not only a beautiful region for hikers, trained mountainbikers will also find trails to challenge them. The valley of the Sioule, between the chain of volcanoes and the Massif Central, has many paths and trails offering splendid views and total solitude!

We have always provided mountainbikes, but since spring 2014 we also rent out e-bikes. This way, the less trained biker can also participate, you can go that extra mile...

At walking distance of our B&B, you can enjoy canoeing on the lake of Chancelade. We have 2 canoes at your disposal, including life vests (2 adults and 2 children). We charge a small fee of 10€ per canoe per 1/2 day.
