Make a holiday rental villa or house in Puy-du-Dome, France your home away from home

The Puy-de-Dome is an area of stunning volcanic scenery, with soaring peaks making way for glistening lakes, gushing rivers and timeless forests. Part of the vast Parc National Regional des Volcans d’Auvergne in the Auvergne department, Puy-de-Dome is a sporting haven of the highest quality. Scattered with beautiful little Romanesque churches, medieval towns and fantastic spa centres, a Puy-de-Dome holiday rental will appeal greatly to anyone with a love for the great outdoors or rural French cultures as well as those simply looking to escape to a wonderfully peaceful scenic part of the world for a little while.

Things to do in Puy-de-Dome, France

The towering peaks of Mont Dore and Mont Dome are climbing, walking and horse riding centres of the highest quality. The volcanic peaks offer a great range of routes, from the leisurely to the fearsome, all of which afford breath-taking views across the countryside. The Puy-de-Dome stage of the Tour de France is the most gruelling of the whole competition, and for those wishing to really test their resolve, the route is open for cycling throughout the year. At the top, you are not only rewarded by spectacular views and an enormous sense of accomplishment, but also the ruins of a Roman temple to explore! Those wishing to see the temple need not attempt to reach it on foot, or from the saddle though, there is a road you can drive!

These mountains are a hotbed of activity, and the warm thermals rising up past the summits mean that hang-gliders and paragliders can be seen floating majestically miles up in the sky regularly. Those wishing to see the region from the air have plenty of options, as there are a good range of flying centres to be found. One of the most popular ways to explore from the sky is in the basket of a balloon.

For those needing, or simply wanting, a little pampering, Le Mont Dore is an excellent place to enjoy the finest of Puy-de-Dome’s spas. The thermal waters which emerge from the mountain springs are blissfully warm, and the spa centres of the region have taken full advantage, creating some of the most luxurious natural spa centres you can find.

During the winter months, the Puy de Sancy is an excellent ski resort off the usually tourist track. There are many fearsome downhill pistes to choose from, as well as wonderfully picturesque cross-country skiing trails to choose from.

                                                              Wonderful Gite

                                                              France is our favourite holiday destination, so this year we decided to visit the Puy de Dome region. After searching Home and Away we found a beautiful gite in Vernet la Varenne. Upon making contact with the owner (Lynne) I knew that this gite would meet or even surpass my expectations, and I was not disappointed. Before departing for our journey Lynne supplied all the necessary details of the gite and full directions. This gite is furnished to a very high standard, and all you require for your stay is to hand. The area around the gite is very beautiful and you have very lovely views of woods and the mountains. It snowed during our stay and this made the views even more delightful. The hospitality showed by Lynne was perfect, we were given full privacy, but when we asked questions she was willing to share her knowledge, experience and tips of the region. We do hope that in the near future we can visit Lynne again and stay in this wonderful gite. Thank you. Regards Rita and Andre

                                                              Relaxing and tranquil accommodation

                                                              The Gite is charming and very comfortable - a real home from home. The garden and terrace are lovely and the views are fabulous. The location is very quiet but not too far from shops for groceries. Lynne was very welcoming and helpful during our stay. We had a lovely week here touring the region on our motorbike and would definitely recommend it if you like tranquility and independence.

                                                              Perfect holiday location.

                                                              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.
