High times and a holiday home in Auvergne
Not only is the Auvergne region sparsely populated, with most of its area given over to forests, grasslands and a unique fauna, but more than half of its towns and villages are perched atop the mountains of the Massif Central. Our wonderful holiday homes in Auvergne provide you with the chance to enjoy the mountain adventure of a lifetime, hiking, mountain biking, rock climbing - even hang gliding from volcanic massifs. The area is also perfect for ramblers. Those interested in pursuing their adventure more as a spectator than an active participant can take one of several cable cars to the highest peaks in the region, or view them from the lofty heights of a hot-air balloon. With its heavy snowfall in winter, the Massif Central also means fantastic skiing at resorts like Super Besse and Super Lioran. What are you waiting for? Book now and let the adventure begin!
