Puy du Sancy

Reviewed By André l'Anglais - Surrey, England

The Massif du Sancy offers a good choice of lovely ridge walking on open mountainsides with great views. The summit itself is marred by the wooden stairs which lead from the top of the cable car but the rest of the massif offers unspoilt mountain scenery.

Vallee de Chaudefour

Reviewed By helidjha - Manchester, England

This valley is breathtakingly beautiful and also a nature reserve - amazing number of wildflowers and butterflies. Fabulous walks take you through this perfect u-shaped glaciated valley, dominated by the massif of the Puy de Sancy. Top tip is to have lunch at the Buron de Chaudefour near Moneaux - aim to get there at the end of a shorter walk or half way round the full walk (14.5km, 5 hours) - for walks, use the Chamina guide for the Massif du Sancy et Artense.

Parc Fenestre

Reviewed By Oski80 - Santa Barbara, Calif

This gem of a city park has been tended and well maintained. Paths meander up hill and down. Splendid plantings make a pleasant backdrop for walking, sitting, and on the extensive play apparatus for children, just plain fun

Scenomusee la Toinette et Julien

Reviewed By danielleg880

Déçus de ne pas avoir pu visiter la grange de Julien (il n'y avait pas assez de monde)
Relate bien la vie de nos campagnes dans un passé qui n'est pas si lointain et fait appel à beaucoup de souvenirs assez émouvants

Lac Pavin

Reviewed By Simon C - Blackpool, United Kingdom

Lac Pavin is a very deep lake, clear (but not quite as clear as once it was) blue water formed in a volcano crater near Besse. It is a beautiful and relaxing walk. In the lake are trout, artic char and minnows, with ducks and other wildlife. If you travel anti-clockwise from the restaurant, you continue nearer the lake level. You can get about 2/3rds of the way round with a pushchair with ease. The last part rises steeply and is littered with rocks and outcrops, and the path is crossed by many streams without Bridges and some without boundaries! You can navigate it by carrying a pushchair (we've done it) but it's not easy and you would need a third person to supervise any loose children. You are likely to get muddy feet in this last part even if it has been hot.its in the shade all the way round, and you could always turn back halfway.

Chateau de Murol

Reviewed By EmmaCrews - Poitiers, France

Seriously stunning views and rocking toilets (joke - go before you get up to the chateau as the toilets inside would require a lot of courage!). The English translation is a little tricky to follow but even for the views alone this castle is worth the visit. Loved it even in winter :-)

Cascade du Queureuilh et du Rossignolet

Reviewed By JoelLeclair - Marcoussis

The walk to both cascades is rather easy, and you can start by either one; you will find a Y at the beginning of the walk, not far from the cemetery in Mont Dore. Free attraction, you walk on well maintained trail up to each cascade, under the shades of trees
You can start from Mont Dore downtown, then take D996, and you will find a sign indicating the cascades; or take your car up to the parking lot near a cemetery;

Très chouette visite avec notre fils. Nous souhaitions en apprendre plus sur le St nectaire et sa fabrication et c'est chose faite. Le fromage est excellent. Notre fils a adoré se promener dans la ferme et approcher les animaux veaux, génisses, moutons, cochons.

Chevrerie des Monts Dore

Reviewed By beaecharles - Houilles, France

Superbe après-midi avec notre enfant dans la chèvrerie.
Isabelle et Béatrice font découvrir leur travail avec plusieurs races de chèvres. Les enfants peuvent nourrir les chevreaux au biberon. Nous pouvons brosser les chèvres et apprendre à traire. On discute facilement du quotidien de la chèvrerie: alimentation, entretien, rythme du travail jusqu'au fromage. On participe donc vraiment tous.
C'est une superbe activité à faire avec des enfants même très jeunes.
On peut y acheter du fromage (naturellement fait avec le lait de la chèvrerie), des savons faits avec le lait, du miel local.
Attention pas de terminal CB mais chèque accepté.
Il y a beaucoup de monde, il faut réserver ou arriver en avance pour la visite. Deux visites, une à 16h, l'autre à 17h15.
