Situated in the heart of France, the Auvergne offers a variety of landscapes: from the summits of Cantal to the rivers and fields of Allier, from the forests of Haute-Loire to the volcanoes of Puy-de-Dôme, it is a succession of exceptional sites on a land shaped by fire and water.
Inhabited since the Stone Age, the Auvergne is a volcanic landscape par excellence. Its name comes from the word "Arvernes", a Celtic people who fought against the Roman invasion, winning an overwhelming victory over Julius Caesar at the Gergovie plateau, thanks to their famous chief Vercingetorix.
The possibilities for visits are countless: from medieval villages and castles to spa towns, such as Vichy and Volvic, from the snow-capped lakes of the Mont-Dore and Super Besse ski resorts, you will be spoiled for choice. You can also spend a day in the leisure parks of Vulcania and Pal, or discover the many rivers that dot the region. It’s worth making a detour to the Romanesque churches, like the one of Issoire, or the cathedral of Clermont-Ferrand. Finally, do not hesitate to climb to the summit of the Puy de Dôme, symbol of the Celtic god of war, or Puy Mary or Puy de Sancy, for a breath-taking view of the Massif Central.
A land of agriculture and cuisine, the Auvergne offers local dishes based on charcuterie: potée auvergnate, small salted lentils or cabbage soup. The region is also known for its cheeses: taste Cantal, Saint-Nectaire, Salers or Fourme d'Ambert with bread and red wine from Saint-Pourçain, the oldest vineyard in France. To complete your intense days, you will always find a festival of traditional music or dance.
Located in the centre of France, the Auvergne is easily accessible by the A71 motorway from Paris (3 hours). Aulnat airport in Clermont-Ferrand offers flights to UK airports.
The staff is incredibly friendly and very helpful, we were in town during the womens world cup and they did everything they could to make us feel welcome.
The breakfast was quite limited. We would prefer some fruit options, just apples or oranges. Something simple.
great location good food paragliding walkable nice
Excellent parking, though the signage for the long walk from the parking garage to and from the hotel was strange and prompted a couple wrong turns or wrong elevator exits.
Very friendly and helpful staff at the front desk. Wiuld have like to have had a shower curtain or partial show door on the tub so the hand held hose did not spray everywhere and soak the bathrrom
Great spaces for families to use. The hotel was spotless and very modern. The only down side was having to pay additional for parking.
Great hotel in a great location! The perfect combination of old world charm with modern amenities!
