Our theme holidays
Having to decide between La Chapellenie and the Buron de Niercombe can be difficult… so why not, for the span of a weekend, try a little bit of both? And, perhaps you would then like to come back for more.
We’ll meet you at Aurillac, at the airport or the train station, if you wish to come without a car. Then spend the first night at La Chapellenie. Saturday, a visit to the market and to a few century-old shops in the town center might be the best way to stock the pantry.
Mid-afternoon, we head for the Buron de Niercombe and to discover the mountains. You’ll spend Saturday and Sunday nights by yourself in the buron. During the day, you may want to try some hiking trails
You’ll return to Aurillac on Monday and, if you need to, depart by plane in the evening.
Take time to pamper yourself with simple things…
On the program for you to choose: the art and methods of combining vegetables, legumes, and cereals for meals that are as delicious as they are light. Hiking on the high plateaus of the Cantal will recharge you with oxygen. This will be complemented through lessons of Feldenkrais. Pia Appelquist, our licensed coach, is also an actress, teacher, and theater director who uses the method as a means to better know yourself.
Through self-massage, the “Do-In”, we learn how to relax ourselves in all circumstances.
In addition, we will have a chance to exchange some secrets of “slow cosmetics” and learn how to prepare our own beauty products.
The goal of this stay is to help release your hidden natural forces and emotions allowing your body to express itself.
Massage will play an important role in this, through the rhythm and technique developed by Daniele Beniami during his 15 years of experience in some of the most prestigious Parisian wellness centers.
His method is inspired by the four classical elements: air, earth, fire, and water. To relearn how to move one’s body in space is another theme of this stay and the Feldenkrais method will help you in this through its pleasant and creative technique. To “Make the impossible possible, the possible easy, the easy pleasant, and the pleasant elegant…”
The Auvergne, quintessential land of volcanoes, offers us the authenticity and force of nature, which finds its echo deep inside us.
Celebrating a birthday, anniversary, hosting a family wedding reception, (the Town Hall is at the end of our street), organizing a professional reunion.
La Chapellenie can be reserved for private functions and offers, over 400 ㎡, including six bedrooms, several salons, a large kitchen, and a private garden.
Better yet, a chef can take over the kitchen and prepare for you a light and inventive cuisine based on the quality of local products and creative techniques of preparation. (prices on request).
Donation Pierre and Colette Soulages – Musée Soulages - Rodez
Rich with a collection of 500 works from the donation by Pierre and Colette Soulages, the Musée Soulages at Rodez opened its doors in the spring of 2014.
A temporary exhibit, bringing together 25 to 30 Outrenoirs, lent by other European museums, completes the permanent collection and places a special emphasis on the creations of the first three decades of the artist. The superb building, designed by a group of Catalan architects in Corten steel which protects itself through its own rust, reminds one of the artist’s work using walnut stain.
Soulages’ work can also be admired in the Abbey of Conques. Rodez and Aurillac are about 100 km apart with many excellent gastronomic addresses along the way...
La Chapellenie is in the center of the stage of the Festival de Théatre de Rue d’Aurillac, the largest get-together of its kind in France consisting of some 20 official companies and more the 500 itinerant troupes. The particularity of Aurillac is that it is surrounded by nature and thus makes for a special kind of liberty and resonance.
Some of the best-known theater companies of international renown pas through Aurillac: (Furia dels Baus, Royal de Luxe, Generik Vapeur, Teatro des Silencio…).
This is an immersion holiday during the four days of the festival. In addition, we propose daily meetings around a bottle of wine in the company of various artists.
Enter, exit, the performance is everywhere.!
