How about a weekend in the countryside Lyonnais ?
We flew to Lyon, St Exupery Airport from London with British Airways and rented a car for the weekend. Getting the car at Avis was super easy, the slight delay was finding the bus that will take us to the rental car park !
But despite the rain and the cold…we made it to the Clos de Combaroux, located 1h30 min from the airport – on the other side of Lyon in l‘Arbresle. This is a tranquil place for those looking to relax, unwind and enjoy what nature has to offer. We woke up at the sound of the rooster and found in the field next to our window ! Definitely a change of scenery for us…
This gite of France is full of character in a converted farmhouse made of stones and pizet. We were greeted by the owners who were extremely friendly and welcoming. We stayed in the Cottage – on 2 levels – featuring a brand new kitchen, living room and a large bedroom and bathroom upstairs. The bedroom could accommodate a family of 4 very easily but fortunately, we are not there yet !
The cottage somehow had “asian” influence which was rather unusual for the location of the gite…
I must say, the place was spotless and we quickly felt like a home away from home. We did not use the kitchen as we were busy and had plans for the 2 days but we did have breakfast in the communal breakfast room located in the main building.
Breakfast was continental with fresh croissant, pain au chocolat, bread, organic fruit juice, juice, cereals and coffee. I just wish fresh egg from the farm would have been offered !!
We used the gite’s “spa” for a little bit of relaxation in the jacuzzi….
Our 2 night stay was charged at 200 euros, exclusive breakfast and towels (although I requested for the towels to be included)
