The ancient town of Riom was once the capital of the Auvergne province and the seat of the Dukes of Auvergne. It has many attractive Renaissance buildings, including some made of lava rock from the surrounding area. Situated 16 km north of Clermont-Ferrand, it is surrounded by volcanic peaks, still with their calderas intact. The highest is the Puy-de-Dome close by.

Superbly refurbished mill!

5 of 5
A very tasteful refurbishment, with everything you need for a comfortable holiday. The apartment overlooks the river, and the natural hot spring is a short walk away. The area is breathtaking, and the volcanoes of the Central Massif are also close by. We had a super stay!
