The former convent of the Sisters of Christ in Montfaucon-en-Velay, next to Gamm Vert, has been transformed. The ground floor hosts from Friday a restaurant, the Atypiq, and a designer boutique. The floor will be converted in a second time in lodgings.
Aurélie and Xavier Deshoulles open the Atypiq in Montfaucon-en-Velay, in the town, on the road to Saint-Pal. In this historic building from 1839, it has three levels of 260 m2 on the ground.
A traditional restaurant
On the ground floor, part is given over to a restaurant which will open from Friday evening to Sunday, seating up to 65 people. Friday evening will be more reserved for themed evenings. To start this Friday, it will be karaoke. On Saturday and Sunday, there are three traditional cuisine menus in a price range of €22 to €32.
A concept store
A wing welcomes designers from Haute-Loire in ready-to-wear and jewelry as well as the floral art workshops of Aurélie Deshoulles who has run the flower shop L’Atelier d’Aurel since 2019. “I continue to be a florist but only for parties and on order.”
Gîtes to come upstairs
Upstairs, the project will be to transform the former bedrooms of the sisters into around ten gites and apartment-gîtes. The old chapel will welcome pilgrims who walk on the Way of Saint-Jacques-de-Compostelle.
