PROPERTY’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 14 November 2016

For those walking the French portion of 'The Way' this is an excellent first night along the trail. A modern gite with rooms for couples, the feel is more that of a modified mid-range hotel that is nearly new. Semi Pension dinner is quit good along with breakfast. A good value when you understand this isn't your older large room...

The rooms are very clean, spacious, but rather cool (couldn't figure how to turn on the heat...). We chose the Demi pension option and had the takeaway picnic for lunch the next day, all were good, filling and tasty. The young man who welcomed us was also the cook, he handled his responsibility very well, worked hard to please!. I...

This pension/gite was started as a project to promote the region and bring tourists and jobs to St. Privat. They do a great job of running a super-clean and modern (drying cupboard for shoes!), well designed place. True, the food was not so special, but it was nicely served and we ate it in a good atmosphere. Definitely recommend as...

This was a great first night on the Chemin; a basic but very clean and well run gite. We were only 6, including 2 pilgrims who reserved that day and a retire couple who came to visit the town in which the wife grew up. The owner/staff were very friendly and supper was lentil soup with bread, sausage, potatoes and...

The is the road to Compostelle. More a gîte than an hotel. Well. Pilgrims do not have much to spend at each stop and that is most probably their first one is starting from Le-Puy-en-Velay. City is nice but do not expect much shopping around.

We stayed in a double room after doing the first day of walking from Le Puy to Conques. La Cabourne is modern and clean; our room was nice and cool on arrival even after a hot July day. We found the service friendly but slightly impersonal. The half-board dinner was fine but nothing to write home about. At 07h30 breakfast...

I was there in May from Le Puy to St Jean de Pied de Port. Fantastic gîte. I was used to the Spanish ones and this was my first french gîte. Couldn't get much better. Excellent and good food The view from the communal room was stunning. The person in charge was very helpful

Modern, state of the art gite d'étape. The first stop from Le Puy en Velay to Santiago de Compostela. Everything is still new. Quite impressive for 'just' an auberge for hikers and pilgrims. Rain shower, taps with neon light, fully equipped ktichen... And a very friendly staff!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
La Cabourne - Group Accommodation - For 13 to 53 People - Saint Privat d'Allier The gite "la Cabourne" was completely renovated in 2012. We are located in Auvergne, specifically in the department of Haute Loire, 15 minutes away from Le Puy-en-Velay and in the heart of the Allier Gorges. With a maximum capacity of 53 beds, la Cabourne can accommodate you for a stopover on the Route of Santiago de Compostela, for a family gathering, a birthday, a wedding, a family reunion, or a seminar. We are also an "Accommodation Center for Backpackers" on the first official stop of the Route of Santiago de Compostela, on the GR 40, and close to the path of the Allier Gorges. Renovated in 2012 in a modern and warm style. You can sleep in comfortable and spacious rooms for 2, 3, 4, 5, or 6 people on site. We offer you half-board formulas (tasting of local products at the guest table of Helene) or full-board ones throughout the year, from March 15 to November 15. From November 16 to March 14, we can offer you self-catering accommodation with the provision of a kitchen. You have two large halls, an outdoor space of 900 m2, and a terrace overlooking the Allier Gorges at your disposal. You can enjoy activities to be performed on site or nearby (supervised swimming in July and August in the Allier, rafting, canyoning, horseback riding, gliding, and mountain biking, among others). Nine hiking trails from the gite will be offered to you on your arrival (a walk from 2.5 to 10 km). You can visit, among others, the city of Le Puy-en-Velay which is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Brioude and its Basilica of Saint Julian, and Saugues and its legendary Beast of Gevaudan. There are many festivals to punctuate your holidays (Chaise-Dieu Festival, Celtic Music Festival of Gevaudan, Bird King Renaissance Festival, Festival of Brass of Monastier-sur-Gazeille, and Country Music Festival of Craponne-sur-Arzon, among others).

“Difficult to reserve a room during pilgrimage season: to go in May, request a room in January. Rooms depend of the size of your group: we were 11, thus 6 in one room and 5 in another. There are rooms for 2.”
