Nature and calm. Originality and comfort. The sweetness of life and authenticity. Welcome to Rinche family's hotel in the Nouvelle-Aquitaine.
“Here, there are no restrictions. I just ask my guests to enjoy this magical place.”
Rinche Family welcome you in an unusual and picturesque place, in the heart of Châtaigneraie, between Quercy and Monts d'Auvergne, 25 km south of Aurillac and near Aveyron and Lot. It is in Vitrac that this 3-star hotel Auberge La Tomette, The Originals Relais is located. Nestled in a rustic setting, this hotel is more than just a hotel: the family host their guests in 16 rooms, but they also have some surprises for them. A caravan, for example, or an extraordinary luxury cabin perched in a tree. Richard and Hanane have created a paradise in communion with nature. In addition there is a restaurant to fully embrace the art of living in Cantal. In addition, bike rental is possible throughout the season.

The 16 rooms of Auberge La Tomette, The Originals Relais boast an understated and elegant style, including 6 accommodations for families (duplex or connecting suites), and are dedicated to well-being and rest. Windows overlook the village square, park, pool or nature. Elegance and authenticity on the one hand. Originality on the other: you will be able to stay as a family in a luxurious hut, perched in a tree, with two levels. On the first level: the terrace, a living room, the bathroom. On the second level: a bedroom, another terrace and a jacuzzi. If you prefer a comfortable caravan, the Rinche's family can offer you one. For an immobile trip between nature and the pleasure of life.

- Non smoking room
The hotel has an elegant restaurant, La table de la Tomette. In the evening, varied meals consisting of an appetizer, a garnished dish, a cheese platter and a dessert are served in the garden or in the outdoor dining room. And to get you off to a good start, the Rinche's family offer an extensive buffet breakfast served in the restaurant or on the terrace.
LA TABLE DE LA TOMETTE
In an elegant and authentic setting, pleasure has an appointment with the flavours of Cantal. Under the exposed beams, surrounded by rustic furniture, you will enjoy excellent unique meals. Starter, main course, cheese and dessert: the formula is classic, but the traditional cuisine and Auvergne specialities are anything but ordinary. Pounti, foie gras, porcini mushrooms, country ham and tripoux are just part of a tasty seasonal cuisine based on local products.
The hotel is located in the heart of Cantal, in Vitrac, in a superb region that you will enjoy exploring.
REST AND RELAXATION AT THE HOTEL
To relax and rejuvenate, the hotel has a pleasant “wellness and relaxation” area, with a Turkish bath, a jet shower, a sauna and a jacuzzi. You will also enjoy, between April and November, a 6x12 m heated pool with a large modular veranda. You are completely surrounded by a huge flower park inviting you to go take a walk. Between two visits of the region.
THE REGIONAL NATURAL AUVERGNE VOLCANO PARK
This is the largest regional natural park in metropolitan France. It extends into the heart of Auvergne, around Riom-ès-Montagnes, across nearly 400 000 ha and has five natural regions: four volcanic (Puy de Dôme, Dore mountains, mountains of Cantal and Cézallier) and a granite region, Artense. An exceptional natural and human environment that is a must-see during a stay in Vitrac.
An extraordinary outing awaits you on the Cantal mountains. Admire the view from the top of Puy Mary summit on the largest volcanic massif in Europe. You will see summits with amazing shapes: the Puy Griou, which looks like a peak; the Puy Mary, in the shape of a pyramid; the Plomb du Cantal, the highest point, looks like a fist. Glacial valleys spread out in star form: you cross many passes, like Pas de Peyrol, the highest road pass of the Massif Central, which makes it possible to discover the Cirque du Falgoux.
WALKING TO AURILLAC
The commercial and tourist capital of Haute Auvergne, Aurillac is not lacking charm with its half-timbered houses and offers special events in August during the international street theatre festival. Don’t miss the Museum of Art and Archaeology, housed in a former convent or the church of Notre-Dame-aux-Neiges, which houses a black Madonna. And definitely don’t forget to take a walk in the peaceful neighbourhood of Carmes.
