Anne, there's someone on bonjourparis.com who lives there and maybe could help you.
The only place I know but is a bit more distance is the famous darling of chefs, the remarkable Michel Bras and his remote hotel/restaurant in Laguiole(home of the famopus knives)

Anne, my wife and I stayed in the Dav'Hôtel in Clermont-Ferrand for two nights. It's in the centre of the city, which may not appeal to you. You can read about the hotel and a restaurant we dined in near the cathedral in our trip report:

Take a look, too, at Radio, a hotel on the western side of CF. It was our first choice, but was closed for holidays when we were there last May. Here's a review from TripAdvisor:

It's a beautiful area ... if you have time, you may want to linger.

Thanks guys
I really appreciate your help. Can't wait to drive over the Millau bridge again. Need to find out if there are viewing platforms nearby
best wishes
Anne

There's a permanent visitors' center near the bridge with viewing points.
