L’Auvergne vue par Lonely Planet
In 6th position in the list of regions to visit, Auvergne made a remarkable entrance in the Best of Lonely Planet‘s trip in 2016.
“… The land-locked Auvergne is a mosaic of volcanic cones, hilltop villages and bucolic farmland, at the centre of France’s Massif Central mountain range. Two great green lungs of protected land extend across this sparsely populated region: to the west, the Parc Naturel Régional des Volcans d’Auvergne is puckered with slumbering volcanoes and winter sports hubs; to the east lies the wilder, wooded Parc Naturel Régional Livradois-Forez. Tumbling between the two, through northern spa town Vichy, is the Allier River, which bisects the colourful Pays d’Issoire and carves out rafting country in the Gorges de l’Allier. East of here, petrified lava plumes tower over pilgrimage town Le Puy-en-Velay.”
