Extraordinary eco-lodge immersed in the Volcans d’Auvergne regional park, combining wild nature, spa pampering and delicious food.
A place for well-travelled people. Instants d’Absolu is a stunningly remote 17th Century farmhouse originally built of lava. Smartly restored in an extraordinary eco-lodge where history and designer fittings meet to create a unique cultural experience, there is nothing quite like the Instants d’Absolu Ecolodge & Spa – anywhere else in France.
It’s wrapped in silence and away from it all, yet thoroughly stylish. Slow and Chic.
Open year round.
