Auvergne is one of France’s 27 regions and comprises four departments – Allier, Puy de Dome, Cantal and Haute Loire. The region is known for its many volcanoes, though the last eruption was around 6,000 years ago. The volcanoes began forming about 70,000 years ago and many have now eroded away, leaving behind hardened, unerupted magma. These form rounded hilltops known as ‘puys’. Stay in the Premiere Classe Clermont-Ferrand Nord Hotel for easy access to the Auvergne volcanoes.
Clermont-Ferrand is one of the best known cities in Auvergne and is particularly popular with tourists. It was the first city to get a "Translohr" transit system, linking its north and south neighbourhoods. Clermont-Ferrand railway station has good links to Paris and other major French cities, making daytrips to other destinations during your stay in Auvergne easy.
