Things to do

Situated in the Puy-de-dome department, Ambert is in the southern centre of France. Close to ski fields and pretty towns, the Ambert area offers something for everyone in your holiday group. The outdoor areas offer stunning scenery and the chance to get fresh air into your lungs every day by exploring on foot. A nice break in Ambert holiday accommodation can be a quiet retreat or time spent exploring the region and learning new things.

-Exploring Ambert is a must to appreciate its history and fine architecture which includes wooden houses from the 15th century and the impressive Church of St. John. Guided heritage walks and tours can be booked at the tourist office.

-Hiking the pretty countryside is easy with a number of trails which can be followed on your own or in organised groups; info available at the tourist office. There are also trails for mountain biking and horse riding.

-Fourme-d'Ambert cheese is a blue cheese that is made in the region. It is one of the oldest cheeses still made in France in the traditional manner and is aged for 28 days before eating. Once you’ve tried the cheese, you should definitely visit the cheese museum to learn all about cheese making. Find out exactly what it takes to make good cheese, how long different cheeses are aged and how they are packaged. Check which days the museum is open as it is closed during quieter periods.

-The Old Paper Mill is open in town for visitors. See why this town is famous for its paper mills and learn all the different steps involved in making paper. Once again, check opening hours before you go as the mill is not always open.

-Visit Lyon as a day trip from your Ambert holiday villa and spend hours in this vibrant city which dates back over 2000 years. Old Lyon boasts Renaissance facades that won’t fail to impress. Lyon also has its share of markets as do most French towns. Remember to take your camera. When darkness falls, Lyon becomes an amazing wonderland of illuminated sites and pretty monuments. See 325 of the city’s finest locations under the spotlight. There’s also a Festival of Lights held every December.

                                                          Perfect holiday location.

                                                          5 of 5
                                                          This is a wonderful, clean and well furnished Gite in one of the most beautiful parts of France, it is a perfect holiday location for all generations. Morag, John and the twins who live next door are delightful and could not do enough to help us without being intrusive. We will be recommending this property to our friends and my husband and I hope to return next year.
