The night of the shepherd

When you think about a ‘place to get away’, you probably often imagine some distant land. Not so fast! That beautiful get away is sometimes just around the corner. Bernard, a Cantal native, knows something about this. Thanks to his ceaseless passion for his region and a good measure of courage, he patiently and deliberately renovated one of the oldest burons in Cantal, “la fumade vieille”, with its back to the mountain and facing a breathtaking view. This place will whisk you away.
