The property

More than two centuries ago, the house was a barn to store crops. In the 70s and 80s, it became an inn, “La Grange aux Ayres” which offered meals and traditional dances. In the middle of the main room you can still see the parquet floor which was originally a dance floor.
In 2007 Jos and Ria, arriving from the Netherlands, fell under the charm of Auvergne and decide to settle in Olloix. They then transformed the house dedicated to tourism that can accommodate twenty people.
In 2017 we will take over. Originally from the region, we finally realized our dream by moving back in the heart of the National Park of the Volcanic region of Auvergne
