This department is volcano country and owes its name to the highest peak in the Chaîne des Puys (made up of 80 volcanoes!), which is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site. You will love this region if you want a holiday offering countryside, mountain and urban settings. It's time for a revitalising stay!
Why not go to the Puy de Dôme this year? Whether you want to ski in the Massif Central or have a summer holiday, you'll be a long way from crowded resorts and beaches! The department offers a variety of activities. One must-do is climbing the Puy de Dôme (1465 metres)! The intrepid will make the ascent on foot, while others will prefer to take the electric train ride overlooking the valley. Once at the top, you can visit the Temple of Mercury, where you can see the remnants of one of the largest mountain sanctuaries in the Roman Empire!
