THE HOUSE Large 18th century renovated farm (200m²) . Constructed from Margeride granite and located at an altitude of 1100m in the Haute Loire department which borders the Lozère, Cantal and Ardèche areas… at the heart of the region where the ’Beast of Gévaudan’ roams and where there have been several sightings in the village. It is also the village where Antoine de Beauterne stayed when ordered by the King to capture the Beast.

To the front of the house is an enclosed courtyard with a covered patio area. SURROUNDING The house is located in a hamlet at the edge of the forest which means you can discover the surrounding area on foot. Depending on the season you can pick blueberries, wild raspberries and mushrooms (cepes and girolles). The region is also well known for its great trout fishing.
