Make a holiday rental villa or property in Allier, France your home away from home

Allier is a beautiful rural department of the Auvergne region of France. Located in the Massif Central, Allier is best known for its magnificent landscape of mountains, ancient forests and dramatic plunging gorges. Allier is the most beautiful area of Auvergne, France’s ‘green lung’, and is the pinnacle of outdoor activity holidays in France. The only things which break up the greenery are the stately chateaux, castles and fortresses which stand proudly on various hill-tops throughout Allier, France.
