Château de Saint Étiennebed and breakfast
A Continental or Scandinavian breakfast will be served in the garden, weather permitting, or in the dining room of the château.
The products are regional; bread, eggs, cheeses and hams come from local producers and the home-made jam comes from our own rich garden.
Dr. H Valvatne is responsible for the daily management of the bed and breakfast.
Originally from Norway, he holds a PhD in genetics and microbiology. He has worked as a scientist for several years in university institutions in Norway, Denmark and The Netherlands. He also has several years of experience in the pharmaceutical industry in The Netherlands and France.
He is now following his dream of creating an own company which combines his main interests: French wines, ecological food, Scandinavian-Dutch-French design/architecture, country life, animals, wellness and aesthetic-medicine.
Håvard also has a passion for cooking. Scandinavian, French and Italian foods are his favorites to prepare.
Château de Saint Étienne is a beautiful and spacious house build on the ruins of an old castle owned by the English.
It was originally dated from the 13th century and later rebuilt in two stages during the 17th and 18th century.
The château was one of the main buildings in the old village of Saint-Étienne-de-Ciernat which was fused with Saint-Étienne-du-Bas to the commune of Saint-Gérand-le-Puy in 1832.
The last couple of years it has been renovated by the current owner to achieve a comfortable and stylish place to live, to work and of course as an attractive place to visit.
