Make a self catering cottage or holiday rental in the Riom area, Auvergne your home away from home

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.
