Guided Guided tours & bed and breakfast
at Château de La Vigne in Ally

A medieval castle in the heart of the Cantal

Château de La Vigne stands between the Dordogne and Puy Mary, surrounded by mountains, valleys, lakes, rivers and high summer pastures. Overlooking a verdant park, the fortified castle offers a breathtaking view of the Monts du Cantal. Château de La Vigne is a must-see for lovers of history, culture and nature. Come and discover this private residence, inhabited by the Fayet de la Tour family, during a guided tour or a stay in one of its elegant guest rooms.

You will be welcomed as friends and, for a moment, you will be immersed in the life of a castle steeped in history and lovingly maintained.

You will find rooms with painted ceilings from the 15th and 16th centuries, panelled rooms from the Louis XV period and rooms with astonishing Troubadour decor.

Everywhere you’ll find authenticity and charm, warmth and hospitality.
