The Auvergne region

Welcome in the largest nature reserve in France, Parc Naturel Régional des Volcans D’Auvergne. The size of the park is 395.000 ha and is located in the Auvergne, in the departement Cantal. The holiday house is located in the village Le Claux.

Le Claux is located between two regional cities Riom-es-Montagnes and Murat, 95 km from the province capital Clermont-Ferrand. The house is located on a mountain crest, called Eybarithoux, at the highest point of the village (env. 1300m) and has a really magnificent view on the valley of the Cantal. There are a lot of castles and century-old towns to visit nearby.

Le Claux

The beautiful countryside with its extensive woods, meadows, mountain slopes, lakes and volcanoes means that there is a rich flora and fauna to appreciate in the surrounding area. There are plenty of sporty activities available in the Auvergne to enable you to gain more of a feel for the area, such as hiking or cycling. The guest books in the house give a good indication of the activities that our guests have engaged in.

In your house information maps are available with a lot of tourist information and references to the tourist offices. The main activity by far is hiking in the environs from Eybarithoux, but also other sports can be done and will be highlighted here.
