Getaways in the Pays de Saint-Flour, experience a life-size vacation

As its name suggests, the Touls dolmen is located in Touls very close to your vacation rental. Did you know ? The Pays de Saint Flour has a collection of remarkable megaliths, dolmens and menhirs which bear witness to a very ancient settlement.

If the subject interests you, a leaflet “Focus on megaliths”, designed by the Pays d’Art et d’Histoire du Pays de Saint-Flour, lists these remains dating back several millennia. Easily accessible on foot, via marked paths, they are generally erected in an open space with a very clear view of the Planèze plateaus.

La Planèze is a high basalt plateau, formed by lava flows from the Cantal volcano. Located between the Monts du Cantal and the Margeride, it has very little difference in altitude, which makes it easy to explore on foot, on horseback or by bike.

In the village of Coltines, 2 km from the Dolmen gîte, you will spend a pleasant time at the Auvergne Agricultural Museum. Located in a typical 17th century farm, this museum is dedicated to rural life in Haute-Auvergne. An informative, interactive and fun visit that will delight young and old!

Sailhant Castle, 9 km from your vacation rental, sits on a spectacular rocky outcrop more than 30 meters high and overlooks a waterfall. A unique site which belongs to the historic route of the Auvergne castles.

In Saint-Flour, you can stroll, between upper town and lower town, in the streets of the former religious capital of Haute-Auvergne. Cathedral, former episcopal palace, market hall, private mansions, the built heritage of the historic center is remarkable.

Take the time to sit down and savor the local specialties: truffade, pounti, charcuterie, AOP cheeses from Auvergne and the famous blond lentil from Saint-Flour. Labeled “Slow food”, red label and IGP, it is unique.

At the Saint-Flour-Coltines aerodrome, you can embark on a unique experience: flying with the birds in an ultralight aircraft. You can also fly over the Cantal volcano, the largest volcanic massif in Europe, in a hot air balloon. Remember to book your flight!

All around Saint Flour, de your towns, like Chaudes-Aigues and Murat, invite you to vacation.

Chaudes-Aigues, between the Monts du Cantal and Aubrac, is renowned for its 32 hot water springs. The Par spring, the hottest in Europe, springs naturally at 82°C. The history of the city is linked to geothermal energy and hydrotherapy. The Géothermia museum tells the story of the use of hot water and geothermal energy in Europe. Did you know ? 40 houses are still heated by geothermal energy.

At the heart of the Cantal volcano, Murat is built on the banks of the Alagnon river. Bredons and its priory church, Bonnevie with its monumental virgin and its basalt organs, Chastel-sur-Murat and its Saint-Antoine chapel: these 3 basalt rocks surround the medieval city. Labeled Petite Cité de character®, Murat displays its private mansions and basalt and phonolite houses for walkers to see. A stop to add to your travel diary!

Fans of industrial heritage will be delighted to discover the famous Garabit viaduct. At its feet, the Truyère has dug its bed into a sumptuous valley. The imposing viaduct, 564 meters long and 122 meters high, designed by Gustave Eiffel and Léon Boyer, was completed in 1884. A superb lighting display reveals its iron lace.

The developments on the Truyère gorges gave rise to the Garabit-Grandval, Lanau and Sarrans reservoirs. Popular with fishermen, these lakes have leisure centers that are very popular with fans of water activities.

On the water, on foot, by bike or motorbike, the wild beauty of the islands, peninsulas and green valleys of the Truyère gorges can be discovered as you wish. Tours are available from tourist offices.

In a completely different register, but just as majestic, the Cantal mountains will offer you beautiful emotions. Here again, outdoor enthusiasts will be able to indulge in their favorite activities: hiking, horseback riding, cycle touring, mountain biking or even observing wild fauna and flora.

From the summits of Puy Mary - Grand Site de France (1,787 m) and Plomb du Cantal, the highest peak in the department (1,855 m), you will be dazzled by the grandiose views of the Cantal volcano.

In winter, you can go to the Lioran station or the Prat-de-Bouc station. Snowshoeing, cross-country skiing and/or downhill skiing, dog sledding... You can do it all, and all of this just 15 minutes by car from the Dolmen gîte!

Calme, rusticité, nature

Commentaire :

Belle maison chaleureuse et bien équipée, propriétaires sympathiques et à l'écoute. Beau séjour au calme au sein de cette belle nature.

Filed on 21/07/2019 Stay from 13/07/2019

La nature, le calme, la gentillesse des gens, les paysages, les vaches, les cascades, les milans... La maison est grande, pratique et propre. Nous avons eu des conseils sur les lieux à visiter et où manger ou faire ses courses. Les enfants et les grands ont été ravis de caresser les vaches, les veaux, les lapins et Mimine. Nous avons aussi pu assister à la traite. Les propriétaires sont adorables !

Tout était parfait. Le Cantal est un lieu magnifique et préservé. Le gîte était très confortable et d'un très bon rapport qualité prix.

Commentaire :

Sylvie et André nous ont très bien accueilli dans leur beau gîte typiquement auvergnat. Nous avons passé une semaine idyllique !
