A stately jewel
Picturesquely situated in the heart of France (Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region/ Departement Cantal) is the Château de Cols in the picturesque village of Junhac. After extensive renovation, the current owners turned the 14th-century castle on the Auze river into a jewel whose beauty they love to share with others. Since May 2023, families or friends can reside in this enchanting holiday domicile in an almost stately manner. The 700 sqm living space of the château is spread over three floors. With six bedrooms, a fully equipped kitchen, separate dining room, library, office, fitness room, games room (pool table, dart board) and a spacious living room, it offers enough space for up to twelve guests. The luxurious and elegant interior leaves nothing to be desired - history and modernity unite in a perfect symbiosis. The SPA room, where you can have a massage, is romantically located in the tower. The impressive property is surrounded by a 1.7-hectare idyllic park with a lily pond and a private pool. An oasis of tranquillity that invites you to linger. A caretaker couple lives on the premises, is happy to give tips on events and excursions, restaurant recommendations and has an open ear for all wishes/questions.
The Cantal is the department with the largest number of hiking trails in France, along rivers and forests, waterfalls and aqueducts. The nature is diverse, beautiful and impressive, and the paths are mostly picturesquely surrounded by old chestnut trees.
Absolutely worth seeing, Salers, a fully preserved medieval village surrounded by city walls, defensive towers and narrow streets where craftsmen have their workshops. Salers was voted "Un des plus beau village de France" (One of the most beautiful villages in France).
