Housing for everyone

L'Avenc is an old farmhouse bought in 1997 by the present hosts. It has since been completely restored and enlarged, so that everyone can enjoy the privileged environment that surrounds it. This hotel in Tavertet perfectly reconciles the charm of the old and the comfort of modernity, without cutting back on the preservation of the environment.

For your journey, you have the choice between 2 distinct zones:
