Additional Location Information

French Farmhouse Holidays is situated in a tiny village of about 40 inhabitants, at the head of a picturesque valley in the Haute-Loire département in France. The general region is called the Auvergne; a large, mountainous area of central France. It is about halfway between two large cities, Clermont-Ferrand and Le Puy en Velay, and the nearest towns are Brioude and Langeac (both at 15 kms). The Mediterranean is 2.5 hours by car (Montpellier), and Paris is 4.5 hours by train.
There are several interesting sites nearby including the fascinating city of Le Puy en Velay (a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a gathering point on the route of the Santiago di Compostella pilgrimage route). Not far away, La Chaise Dieu with its spectacular 14th-century cathedral is surrounded by acres of forest. Each year at the end of August, there is a remarkable music festival in the cathedral, featuring some of the most well-known names in classical music. The chateau of General La Fayette is nestled at the base of the mountain of La Chaise Dieu, the birthplace of one of the most important players in both the American and French Revolutions. Numerous other sites of interest dot the landscape, little detours always turn up new surprises.
The Auvergne is known as an outdoorsy area of France, and there are plenty of outdoor activities available such as canoeing, kayaking, horseback riding, cycling, swimming and hiking. Many of these activities can be done within 10 km of the Farmhouse.
