The Murol Self Catering Holiday Resort** (Massif Central) is in constant contact with all the tourist activities on offer in the heart of the Massif Central and in the Auvergne. Murol has been home to several romantic and impressionist painters who have immortalised the treasures of the region, which can be admired at the Murol Museum. The charm of the Massif du Sancy’s stunning winter landscapes won’t escape you either...
Anyone who loves nature, heritage and crafts, your winter self catering holiday in the Auvergne is sure to bring out your adventurous side. Troglodytic houses, farms and producers of Saint-Nectaire cheese, Auvergne clogs and boot craft workshops, châteaux and Romanesque churches will no doubt be among your discoveries.
The Vulcania amusement park, which is around 45 km from the Resort, is perfect for kids as they can learn the history of the volcanoes in the Auvergne and across the world. The essence of Auvergne awaits, all around the Murol Self Catering Resort!
