After living more than 25 years in a small village near Vichy, we wanted to settle in Vichy and thus create an activity that combines hospitality and tourism.
We fell in love with this house because of its architecture and its name that evokes the elsewhere, travel.
We ourselves travelers and adventure enthusiasts, we wanted to take an interest in the name of the Villa. Our research took us to the territory of Annam, the current Vietnam, through Algeria and also Vichy where the Prince of Annam stayed during the cures.
It is an Art Nouveau house that opens its doors. Built in 1904 by the architect Adrien Dacq, the Villa has retained all its characteristics through the years. It was enough restoration work to restore its brightness, its splendors. As soon as you push the door, the house invites you into its charming interior, warm and bathed in light.
Villa Prince d'Annam is nestled in an area next to the thermal baths where calm and tranquility reign, in the heart of Vichy, 100 meters from the Rotunda and Lake Allier.
We offer our 3 comfortable guest rooms with high quality bedding, combining elegance, authenticity and a touch of elsewhere.
On the ground floor, a lounge welcomes you to relax, read a book, browse a magazine or listen to music vinyl version.
Breakfast will be served in the living room next door or on the terrace. Prepared by us, it is composed of fresh products of the region, our jams and honey from our hives.
Next door is the breakfast area, which will be served in the morning. The room overlooks a terrace that communicates with the patio by a stone staircase Volvic.
An external Volvic stone staircase brings you to the patio, a pleasant corner of greenery with its flowers, its olive tree and its fig tree. His exposure allows him to be bright and bathed in sunshine.
