THEMED HOLIDAY RESORT
MUROL AT THE HEART OF A HISTORICAL REGION
Ski down volcanoes with your family in the Massif Central.
Skiing down a volcanic mountain is a unique experience; why not try it this year, and go on a skiing holiday to the Murol d’Auvergne themed holiday village** (Massif Central) with your family or as a couple? You're going to love your new pied-à terre, located at an altitude of 830 m, and its snow-covered view of the Massif du Sancy with the Murol Castle in the background, a masterpiece of medieval military architecture. At the Murol Themed Village, you can enjoy the comfort of a room, bungalow, lodge or gîte, depending on your chosen package: full board or half-board. Your kids are welcome to join the kids’ club free of charge (during the school holidays). Our qualified activity leaders organise creative arts, sports and playtime sessions to suit their age group. The low-altitude ski resorts of Besse Super-Besse and Mont-Dore have guaranteed snow in wintertime. The two ski resorts, which are linked, have the “Famille Plus Montagne” quality seal (which assesses French resorts on requirements for families with children from 18 months old). This guarantees that they both offer family activities to suit everyone. It's the ideal place to learn or improve alpine skiing, Nordic skiing, or alternative snow sports. A free shuttle links Besse Super-Besse and the Murol holiday village** in the Massif Central every day during the winter holidays. You are in Auvergne, a region renowned for its thermal waters. It's the perfect opportunity to make the most of a well-being break in the spa or a treatment at one of the many health spas nearby.
