Your Hosts

Your hosts : Gerd and Jean STARACE 

Having fallen in love with Auvergne, they decided to settle here over twenty years ago.

Gerd, although proud of being Norwegian, is in fact quite French at heart.  Her passions are nature, art and gastronomic cooking.  In other words, she greatly appreciates the authenticity of Auvergne.

Jean, formerly of the "Grands Magasins", recycled himself into a university professor of marketing.  And obviously having to help look after a bed &  breakfast made him develop some talent as a fix-it man.

The Starace family includes three children, now adults, who are often seen around the household : Christine, Pierre and Philippe. Recently two grandchildren have increased the family circle : Yannis and Iliés.
