Welcome to our guest house!
In this house dating from 1870, you will discover the charm of the old mixed with sculptures and colourful paintings.
The house benefits from the rising sun, ideal for waking up and for breakfast on the terrace in summer. Otherwise, the dining room located on the ground floor welcomes you with its good smell of coffee and croissants…
On the site of this residence were the gardens of the Benedictine women’s abbey “Le couvent St Laurent” (now the Abbey’s residential flats).
The revolution saw the sale of the land and Mr. Alphonse-Joseph Charmeil, professor of drawing at the Collège Royal de Bourges and founder of the Musée de Bourges, of which he was the curator for nearly 50 years, had this original residence built.
In 1878, he had a kiosk and two pavilions added to the garden, made up of a marble decoration, originally the choir tower of the church of St Pierre Le Marché built in 1760 (now the church of Notre Dame).
This decoration is still present in its original facing and has been registered as a Historic Monument since 2007.
