About Erwin and Margriet Derksen

We met on a mountain biking holiday 2000 in Equador. Right from the start we realised that we both have a passion for cycling. Whether on a road bike, a mountain bike or a fully packed touring bike; we both like it equally. We shared cycling holidays together on road and mountain bikes in Europe and also further a field including Kenya and Tanzania and a 6 month cycling trip from Lima (Peru) to Ushuaia (southern most point of South America).

After a while we both realised that we wanted to do more with this passion. We decided to leave our home in the Netherlands to look for a location in France. This location naturally had to meet certain criteria; a fantastic cycling area where we could start some great cycle rides right from our doorstep; nearby shops and restaurants, easy access from a motor way, and hopefully near to winter sports tourism.

During a holiday in May 2007 we visited the Sancy-region for the first time and although the visit was short, we both were immediately struck by the cycling possibilities in this amazing beautiful and varied area. We returned in September 2007 and to our big surprise we returned 3 weeks later with a draft purchase agreement. At the end of 2007 we became the official owners of Les Camélias!

As well as cycling we really do not mind putting on our show shoes, hiking boots or even (cross country) skis! We also welcome non cyclists as Le Mont-Dore and the Sancy-region also has plenty to offer to the people looking for a less active holiday.

Erwin and Margriet Derksen purchased this apartment in 2007

Very comfortable apartment on 2nd floor for 3 persons maximum in Le Mont-Dore
average rating of 4.0 based on 1 reviews

Très bon accueil mais...

  • 4 of 5

Erwin et margriet sont très souriant et nous ont très bien accueilli, le studio est sympa et très bien entretenu, un seul bémol le petit déjeuner qui a 6€50 mériterait d’être plus garni.

Owner's Response: Bonjour, Nous vous remercions pour votre appréciation. On est quand-même un peu surprise par votre remarque concernant le petit-déjeuner. Comme le petit-déjeuner consiste de 2 à 3 types de différents pains, une gourmandise (souvent maison comme des petites crêpes, muffins ou gâteau), confitures maison, fromages régionaux, café, thé, chocolat chaud et de jus de fruit on se demande se que vous avez manqué à l’heure de petit-déjeuner ? Surtout qu’on pense d’être toujours à l’écoute de nos clients pendant le petit-déjeuner et que vous pouvez nous toujours demander pendant le petit-déjeuner ce que vous avez manqué (comme peut-être du fromage blanc et de céréales ; qu’on a mais par manque de demande de mettre plus sur la table). Bien cordialement, Margriet Derksen | Les Camélias

The apartment is located at a 5 minute walk from the Le Mont-Dore village centre. Le Mont-Dore is a town in the Puy-de-Dôme department in the Auvergne region with about 1,450 inhabitants. It is a lively town a wide range of shops surrounded by stunning nature.

The town is located at an altitude of 1,050 metres in the Dordogne valley. The Dordogne has its origin just outside Le Mont-Dore, where the mountain streams the Dore and the Dogne converge.

The Puy de Sancy is visible from almost everywhere in town, and at 1885 metres it is the highest mountain of the Massif Central. The presence of this volcano not only makes Le Mont-Dore a thermal spa town but also a convivial ski resort. In wintertime Le Mont-Dore offers alpine and cross country skiing as well as snowshoeing.

Thanks to the nearby motorway, Le Mont-Dore is also easy to get to.
