It is completely secure, making the pool a real place for games and relaxation. You'll be able to lay back in the sunbathing chairs in the shade of parasols while the little ones play in the shallow end (1 m deep), or while the grown-ups do lengths or dive into the deep end.

The lightning of the pool allows you to prolong the joy and enjoy the area even once night falls.

The tennis court is situated at the limits of the property, and offers a unique view of the Puys mountain chain. The lighting means that you can play at any time. Perfect for experts and amateurs! We provide some rackets and balls. If you'd like, the tennis court can become a basketball court.

The former "orangerie" is equipped with professional material, which will delight even the most demanding guests, with 9 weight machines, an elliptic bike, a training and semi-elongated bikes, dumbbells, bench press, vibrating and oscillating platforms, individual Sybaritic spa, 4-person hot tub, and more.

There is also a putting green and a driving area. Don't forget to bring your equipment and train on our green! The terrain means that you can try out your drives on various difficulty levels. For beginners, there are some clubs provided so that you can get started on the sport.

- For nature lovers, the 8-hectare estate provides a landscape that is part park, part forest.

About Bruno Laiguillon

Passionate about history and architecture, Mr. and Mrs. Laiguillon and their 7 children will open the doors to an estate with which they fell in love. Sociable, attentive, and available, they'll help make your time here into an unforgettable moment.

Why Bruno Laiguillon chose Thuret

In the heart of the Auvergne region, the Château de la Canière was, until recently, one of the most beautiful hotels in the region. Today, it is a private getaway which its new owners have tried to make accessible so that everyone can have part of the dream.

The Château de la Canière, which has been so appreciated for its architecture and elegance, is the masterpiece of the passion of Etienne Berard de Chazelles, and the esteemed architect, Emile Camut. They decided in 1884 to begin construction in the style of the magnificent works of Etienne's great-uncle, Antoine Lavoisier. The memories, instruments, manuscripts, and his father's books on modern chemistry, passed down through the family, were stored here in this manor, which was built to house them. That's the origin story for this architectural story, with a 3-storey atrium, a 2-storey library, and magnificent reception salons. The 42 original bedrooms in the original have been transformed into 26 rooms and suites, all of which bathrooms with bathtubs and/or showers and toilets. The bedrooms are all air conditioned and boast a mini bar, safe box, desk, TV, and more. They are all decorated in a unique style that plays an homage to the beauty of the area. This magnificent place is now available so that everyone can be a part of the dream of a place nestled between history and modernity.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

It is located in the region of volcanoes, without any disturbances, yet close to all the activities.

The 2000-m2 château offers:

- 300 m2 of reception area in the décor of the period,

- 26 rooms and suites with 5-star comfort, exceptional views, air conditioning, bathrooms and shower rooms with underfloor heating, mini bars, large flatscreen TVs with satellite service, desks, and high-quality bed linen.

- An atrium crowned with a special 16-metre dome,

- 2-storey library has over 3,000 volumes.

- Chapel with stained-glass windows.

In the former "orangerie", there is a 120-m2 gym and fitness room which is entirely equipped with a set of 9 workout machines, an ab machine, a dip machine, training bikes, elliptical and semi-reclined bikes, as well as oscillating and vibrating platforms. The wellness facilities have an individual spa and a hot tub.

In the former restaurant :

bar, as well as reception salons, large and entirely equipped kitchen, and covered terraces.

Gorgeous property with every amenity

  • 5 of 5

Every bedroom in this beautifully restored and well-maintained property has its own private bath; the beddings were luxurious; the views from each room superb. We held a business retreat with 26 people and the property has Wifi, flip charts, audio/visual equipment, and several large rooms for meeting. When it was time for play, there is a full gym, pool and hot tub, basketball court, etc. Our hosts were extremely gracious and helped with all our transportation needs getting to and from the property and going out for day trips, including making recommendations for restaurants and sites to see in the local towns. We had a fabulous experience and plan to return for another retreat in a few years. Thank you, Hélène and Bruno!

Le château et la propriété sont exceptionnels

  • 5 of 5

Le propriétaire m'a demandé de laisser une appréciation, ce que je fais volontiers :

Le château est un ancien hôtel 5* et cela ce voit : les chambres sont toutes très luxueuses avec tout le confort d'un palace : air conditionné (que l'on a aussi utilisé pour chauffer), frigo, coffre fort, bureau, très grands lits ultra confortables avec des surmatelas. Il y a le sol chauffant dans les salles de bain, miroirs grossisant et sèche cheveux (très pratique).

Les chambres qui donnent coté ouest et sud on vue sur le Puy de Dome (c'est magnifique).

Le linge de lit et les servietes de toilette nous ont été fournies.

Il y a le wifi partout sauf tout en bas dans l'entrée du château (mais cela ne gène pas).

Tout est parfaitement propre et entretenu. Les salons sont très beau et très pratiques (ils communiquent tous entre eux très largement) et le mobilier est très joli (chaises et fauteuils Louis XVI).

On a aussi utilisé l'ancien restaurant qui donne sur une grande terrasse et qui possède un grand bar avec une belle cave à vin...

Il y a des chambres supplémentaires à l'étage, mais on ne les a pas utilisées.

Le propriétaire avait installé des chauffages extérieurs bien pratiques.

Attention, on ne peux pas fumer à l'intérieur (il faut aller sur la terrasse).

La salle de gym est super équipée, comme une salle professionnelle. On a utilisé également le sauna mais pas le spa (c'est un spa individuel).

Le terrain de tennis est tout neuf et il y a des paniers de basket également installés au bout.

La piscine n'était plus en service mais on a pu jouer au golf. Le gardien nous a prété le matériel pour pouvoir jouer.

Il y a de très belle choses à voir autour du château et notamment de belles églises et d'autres châteaux historiques.

Le propriétaire nous a raconté l'histoire de son château (c'est un passionné) et expliqué le nom de toutes les chambres (elle ont toutes un numéro mais aussi un nom qui correspond à l'histoire du château...).

Vraiment un super séjour !!!

Merci

Un vrai palace !

  • 5 of 5

52 personnes dans le cadre d'une réunion familiale.

Habitués à louer ce type de grandes propriétés, jamais nous n'avions eu la chance d'avoir un tel niveau de luxe. Les salons sont somptueux. Toutes les chambres sont spacieuses (jusqu'à 100 m2 pour la notre !!!) et vraiment luxueuses. (plancher chauffant très apprécié dans la salle de bains)

Le temps était de la partie et nous avons pu profiter de toutes les installations : tournoi de tennis et basket, initiation au golf, sauna, spa individuel (une machine incroyable); mention spéciale pour l'immense salle de remise en forme avec du matériel digne d'un fitness center.

Après notre dîner au château, nous avons terminé la soirée de samedi dans la discothèque de l'ancien restaurant, près du bar...

Trouver mieux pour l'an prochain va être difficile

Merci à Bruno pour son accueil et ses conseils pour l'organisation de notre weekend. A bientôt !
