We never get bored in Auvergne! You will always have something to do. Athletes more or less experienced will be able to indulge in many outdoor practices. Nature lovers will be conquered by the fauna and flora of Auvergne. The most curious will have the opportunity to cultivate himself by visiting the many ancient monuments located on our territory, as well as museums that tell our heritage. And for the most greedy, the local gastronomy will salivate the taste buds!
