About Us

John and his beehives

We, Annice and John Baynham, are English and bought the house in this lovely region in 2004. There has been a lot of work done since then. The house, its vegetable and flower gardens and animal pens will remain an on-going project for some time. We hope that all our visitors enjoy the region and all the many attractions, lovely villages and historic towns in the Allier. We discover more each year that passes.

We welcome all guests to share our home and garden, watching the skies, enjoying the peace, eating excellent food with a variety of local ingredients, international menus and vegetables and herbs that are home grown when seasonal. We can help you in every way to make your holiday an enjoyable and memorable one while staying at LA GRANDE CHAUME.

We speak English and French.
