At the edge of a wild river

In front of our inn is the departure of raftings that bravely venture on the Allier, in the wildest sector of the gorges of Haut Allier.

For some hikers when you arrive in Monistrol, you finally enjoy an excellent swim after several days of walking.

Between two major difficulties of the course

Monistrol is in the hollow of the Allier valley between two major difficulties of the route: the descent of Rochegude from Saint Privat d’Allier and the climb of the Madeleine to Saugues. The pilgrim’s rest is an opportunity for a good break before continuing your effort.

Le Repos du Pèlerin is also a place of well-being, nature courses and music!

Pictogramme plantes


Medicinal to treat your bells, aromathiques to delight your plates, come and discover our beautiful plants of Allier.
