Interaction with GuestsAs we are on site (we live in the main house) we are always there for advice on where to go and of course sorting out any problems you may encounter during your stay. The Neighborhooda Platriere Retreat is situated in the department of Allier in the region of Auvergne, in the heart of France. We are close to the departments of Cher & Berry in the region of Centre and also close to the border of the Nievre in the region of Bourgogne (Burgundy). With a wealth of unique landscapes, rich history and cultural heritage, Auvergne offers something for everyone. The region boasts of an exceptional variety of lakes, waterfalls and running through the region is the river Allier. In fact water is everywhere in Auvergne and offers excellent fishing, bathing, windsurfing, and other water sports including white-water rafting. The area is also known as the "green lung" of France. Nearby to La Platriere is the Troncais Forest, with its 300 year oaks. With 10,000 hectares, the Troncais is the largest oak plantation in Europe and probably the world. This region is sure to capture your heart with its white water, numerous springs, Gallo-Roman sites, gently undulating landscape, chateaux, churches and the haunting sounds of deer belling in the woods. Why not stay with us in the Autumn, when guided tours at sunset to the Troncais are available to hear the eerie sound of the belling of the deer or go wild mushroom picking (you can take your collected mushrooms to the local pharmacy who will advise you of which ones are safe to eat). 15 minutes drive from La Platriere is the spa town of Bourbon l’Archambault, which is the birthplace of the Bourbon kings. With its impressive fortress built before the '100 years war', this is a must for visitors who can explore its impressive remains and admire the stunning views from its hilltop position. It's great fun for children too. Whilst there you may wish to spend a relaxing morning or afternoon at the Thermal baths. The Auvergne has approximately 500 chateaux, which range from the stately, to the fortified or medieval, and is the ‘land of the Bourbon dukes’. Montluçon (40 kms away) is also home to the Bourbon Dukes and has an historic centre and numerous museums. Even its Romanesque art, can be surprisingly inventive. Medieval fortresses and long dormant volcanoes dominate the landscape of the Auvergne region of central France. This is a world of memories and picture postcards, of ancient stone villages surrounded by gently rolling hills. Visit Moulins the capital of the Allier and see the historial parts of this beautiful city with its cathedrals and museums. Situated in the Massif Central, Auvergne is an ancient region of great natural beauty and dramatic landscapes, and has several hundred volcanoes. Both the Puy de Dome (1465 metres) and the Cantal are well known, the first for its formidable challenge to cyclists on the Tour de France, and the second is the largest volcano in Europe. There are breathtaking views of this chain of extinct volcanoes. Just to the north-west of Clermont-Ferrand is the newly opened theme park Vulcania, set in the crater of an extinct volcano. (see (URL HIDDEN) You may wish to take a peaceful hot air balloon ride, calmly drifting over this unique landscape, where on a clear day you can see Mont Blanc over 400 km away! Or perhaps try your hand at paragliding and hang gliding with guidance from qualified professionals from the summit of the Puy de Dome. The regions has two magnificent Nature Parks aim to protect Auvergne’s natural riches and traditions and offer perfect walking and unique plant and animal life. The Auvergne Volcanoes Regional Park is a huge area made up of remarkable landscapes, flora and fauna that owes it strong identity to a rural society which has managed to preserve its know-how and culture. It is one of Europe's oldest and largest regional parks. You may wish to discover Auvergne by rail, and the Cevenol line is one of the most beautiful rail journeys in France. Some go places that cannot be reached by any other way, such as the steepest most remote parts of the Allier gorges. The route takes you into the heart of untamed nature and passes through 53 tunnels and climbs up steep slopes before travelling on high ridges making you feel as though you are suspended outside time. Auvergne is an accessible Garden of Eden boasting over 2,500 species of flowers, and is home to around 100 rare protected plants. The Montagne Bourbonnais near Vichy is known as the Garden of France and is popular during summer and winter with its ski resort of Loges des Gardes with its dry toboggan run. The Auvergne is also a huge playground for the great eagle-owl, salmon, mouflon and thousands of other species. The bends of the River Allier are a bird's paradise. Over 250 species including the marsh hawk, stone curlew and osprey feel at home there. Visit the Allier Valley Nature Centre and discover and learn about the natural heritage of this beautiful area.
