France travel guide

France - Massif Central (Chapter)

11th Edition Mar 2015

This is the Massif Central chapter from Lonely Planet’s France guidebook.

In one of the wildest, emptiest and least-known corners of France, you can feel nature’s heavy machinery at work. Below ground, hot volcanic springs bubble up, while high in the mountains trickling streams form three rivers: the Dordogne, the Allier and the Loire.

  • schuss down slopes or riding the century-old funicular to mountaintop trails in Le Mont-Dore
  • maps
  • meet the cows who make one of France’s most famous AOC cheeses at St-Nectaire
  • transport
  • soak in the mineral-rich spa waters in belle époque Vichy
  • restaurants & accommodation

Coverage includes: Clermont Ferrand & around, Riom, Vichy, Parc Naturel Régional des Volcans d’Auvergne, Volvic, Puy de Dôme & around, Orcival, Col de Guéry, Le Mont-Dore & around, Murat & the Monts du Cantal, Salers, Parc Naturel Régional Livradois-Forez, Thiers, Ambert, La Chaise-Dieu, Le Puy-en-Velay & around, Gorges de l’Allier and La Montagne Protestante.
