L’Auvergne côté soleil levant

(the side of the Auvergne where the sun rises)

Located in the very heart of France, Auvergne is a unique area with a well-preserved natural environment. This is the ideal destination for relaxing holidays offering maximum well-being and plenty to see and do.

The Auvergne is divided into 4 departments, namely: Allier, Cantal, Haute-Loire and Puy de Dôme. Together they offer a very varied countryside with woods, rivers, hills, lakes, volcanoes, mountains, which offer beautiful views. Our B&B is situated in the department Puy de Dôme.

The Puy de Dôme has two regional nature parks.

To the west the Park of the Volcanoes of the Auvergne with Les Mont Dômes or the chain of the Puys. You can see their famous silhouette from afar: more than 80 volcanoes and craters, which erupted regularly between 100,000 and 7,000 years ago.

To the east you will find Park Livradois-Forez. This is a low mountain range (max. 1634 m high) with a variety of beautiful natural landscapes and a profusion of various animals and plants. In order to enjoy all this beauty there are hundreds of kilometres of hiking and bicycle tracks for you to use.
