Les Magnolias Hotel in the village of Plaisance in the Aveyron is a recently renovated 700 year old building, once the family home of the famous French poet Paul Valerie.   It is owned by a German entrepreneur, Dietmar Ley, who in 2000 purchased the 700 year old building from the renowned restaurateur family Roussel and then invested substantially into expanding and renovating it into the current 22 room offering.  The hotel’s facilities include two beautiful outdoor terraces shaded by ancient magnolias trees, an outddor covered swimming pool with views of the Aveyron countryside and a Petanque course.  Les Magnolias is run by is wife Claudia Ley, who also manages Cycling Magnolias. Plaisance is located in an idyllic cycling environment as it is surrounded by protected indigenous forests, rivers, ancient villages and well kept and quiet roads. It is equally an ideal destination for walking and nature enthusiasts.

All rooms at Les Magnolias were designed as en suite luxury rooms in a classic traditional style based on stone and French oak.  Four room categories offered: Standard, Superior, Family and Suite.

Meals are served at the hotel’s beautiful medieval-period dining room or at its brasserie and charming outdoor terraces.  Lunch and dinner semi-gastronomy menus are offered on week-ends and bistro/brasserie menus are served on week days and evenings. Meals can be accompanied by carefully selected local and regional wines stocked at the Les Magnolias wine cave.  The restaurant changes its menus according with the chef’s inspiration, sometimes daily!  Read more about our chef Chris Mathias

The hotel staff is international (French, English, German and Portuguese are spoken) and very friendly.  Just 40 kms away from the World Heritage Site of Albi and also close to the Roquefort cheese caves and Millau’s tallest bridge in the world, Plaisance is quickly becoming an ideal holiday destination for a variety of clients from all over the world.  A few of France’s categorised “Most Beautiful Villages” and “Villages of Character” are also close by, namely Cordes-Sur-Ciel, Brousse-Le-Chateau, Peyre and Combret.
