Welcome to Camping / Chambre d'Hôtes / Gîtes  La Cour d'Enchère in Saint-Palais. We are Ron, Ellen and Thomas Gelderblom originally from The Netherlands. We've been living here since 2017 permanently. We chose the Allier region because of its quiet and unique charm with various unspoilt medieval villages, castles and historic towns against a picturesque background of hills, rivers and farmland. This area has a continental climate with the ideal balance between warmth during the day but a refreshing coolness during the night. Not only this, but since it used to be a volcanic region, the soil is very fertile, which often results in fields of wheat, barley, sunflowers or coleseeds during summer times.

In the middle of the peaceful French countryside you'll find our campsite with beautiful scenery. We have hardstanding pitches for camping cars and caravans and a campground for tents.
Top quality modern toilets and shower facilities, cleaned throughout the day and an indoor dishwashing area. Enjoy our weekly BBQ evening with homemade recipes and daily, fresh baked bread from a traditional, local french bakery.
The guest room Cello is both luxurious and spacious. It is suitable for up to four persons and comes with two bedrooms and a private and spacious bathroom. The second bedroom, which includes 2 single person beds, is accessible through the master bedroom and is ideal for a family with children.
Breakfast, including freshly baked bread, will be served every morning in the dining room between 8:00 and 10:00 am.

The guest room Cheval (meaning horse in french) is both luxurious and spacious  and suitable for 2 persons. Details include a bespoke bedframe made from parts of an antique horse carriage. It also has a lovely sitting area in front of what used to be a bread oven. The bathroom however, is fully modernised to suit your needs.  Breakfast will be served every morning in the dining room between 8:00 and 10:00am.

The spacious cottage Chasseur (hunter in french) has 2 separate bedrooms for 2 people each, living room with kitchen and a seperate toilet and shower. It's called "the Chasseur" because it used to be a retreat for the local hunters both before and after the hunt, to relax and have lunch and a drink. Ofcourse it has been completely remodeled into a cottage including heating, a kitchen with an induction furnace, a fridge and free Wi-Fi. The fresh decor and authentic details ensure a wonderful stay, completed with the characteristic silence of the countryside. The cottage is fully accessible to disabled people

Chapelle Saint-Rémy

Chapelle Saint-Rémy in Saint-Sauvier: dedicated to Saint Remy, this 12th century chapel and miraculous inexhaustible source of water is an important pilgrimage site of the ancient world until 1828, when it is forbidden, but it continues until in 1937. Achille Allier described in detail in the "old Bourbon". On June 24, many pilgrims come to drink water from the fountain or to swim, to relieve rheumatism or diseases of the eye or paralysis and even colic. Inside, we find a great frame of chestnut heart-shaped hull of the ship.
