THE VILLAGE OF SAILHANT,

RENTAL PROPERTIES

One can visit Europe and stay in a luxury hotel, but how many people have the opportunity to stay in an ancient village composed of houses clustered around a medieval chateau?

A TRULY UNIQUE EXPERIENCE

A lifetime event for those who have traveled everywhere & seen everything.

A lifetime event for those who have traveled everywhere & seen everything. In Le Sailhant, one has the opportunity to stay in a remote, ancient village composed of houses clustered around a medieval chateau.

Families can spend a week in the village of Le Sailhant with a tour at Château du Sailhant, a thousand year old château-fort, located in the mountainous Auvergne region of central France. At an altitude of over three thousand feet, it stands on a dramatic volcanic promontory with one hundred foot perpendicular cliffs on three sides overlooking a mystical seventy-foot waterfall that drops into a prehistoric volcanic crater lake.

Accessible only on one moated side, the site has been occupied from the most remote of times.

Guests will have the opportunity for guidance and historical reference regarding the region, as well as a complimentary tour of the chateau with its fabulous history, its French kitchen, two 14th century Gothic rooms, two 16th century Renaissance rooms, and a tower from the ninth century. There are shooting slits, a dungeon, a moat, hidden rooms and secret passages.

Once there, you can swim in the volcanic lake, horseback nearby, hike in the renowned volcanic mountains or hunt for wild boar. If you like, you may take lessons in the distinctive Auvergnat style of cooking, hone your French or go skiing. 

Château du Sailhant is 10 kilometers from medieval Saint-Flour, a historic and picturesque hill town of 3,000 people, with marvelous shops, a Gothic cathedral, museums and a classic market on Saturday. There are numerous nearby chateaux open to the public. The Auvergne region is famous for its cheeses, charcuterie, cooking, volcanic mountains, rustic countryside, stone villages, Romanesque churches, black Christs and Virgins, and mystical legends. Just one hour away, the lovely city of Clermont-Ferrand has cathedrals, museums, great antiquing and an international airport.
