The extinct volcanoes of the Massif Central are now a beautiful backdrop for hiking, mountain biking, cross country skiing, alpine skiing and small slopes.

The Massif Central in the very vast Auvergne region is very mountainous and of volcanic origin plateau. The house is about 900 meters which cools in summer and in winter usually a fair amount of snow. About 15 km from the cottage are the Monts Dore Puy Sancy (1885 m.), The highest point of the Massif Central and is the highest mountain in central France.
