Tourist activities to discover around Résidence Vacances Fournols d'Auvergne

From the gentle hills of the Auvergne where it's perched, the Fournols d’Auvergne self catering holiday resort*** gives you access to a variety of tourist activities which will immerse you in the treasures of the local area and the heritage of the Massif Central. The different altitudes of the view points give you a range of perspectives over the Livradois-Forez regional nature park. Thousands of kilometres of footpaths traverse the length and breadth of the Auvergne, between the Puy-de-Dôme mountain and the Haute-Loire. Set off to discover unspoilt wooded areas and traditional craftsmanship. You may come face to face with the “pierres de la sagesse” (wisdom stones), mysterious prehistoric stones which are scattered across the region. This is where you will find the banks of the Durolle river and the impressive Creux de l’Enfer contemporary art centre. At Fournols, just a stone's throw away, you can enjoy a range of fun activities, from horseriding to archery (July-August), a treetop adventure course, or a trip in a microlite.
There are several sites that are worth a detour in the surrounding area: Thiers, the world capital of cutlery; Issoire with its Roman stones; the Abbey of Chaise-Dieu with its famous classical music festival in August; the cheese dairies where they make Fourme, Bleu d’Auvergne or Montagnou cheeses... And then, of course, the majestic and peaceful Auvergne volcanoes, and the Puy de Sancy and Puy de Dôme mountains... To find out everything there is to know about these old giants, head to the Vulcania amusement park (75 km away). Sensational experiences guaranteed!
