The Relais de Montgeoffroy is an XVIIIth century farmhouse located on the heights of Saint Jean de Côle, classified village, 3km from town. The property is surrounded with woods and hills, in a private park of meadows and forests. Formerly used as a farm and barn, the estate mainly cultivated vines, then pine resin, before falling into disuse at the beginning of the twentieth century. The renovation of the building, which began in 1969, was completed in 2018.
