The Cantal is the undiscovered jewel of France offering unrivalled hiking, cycling and exploring. It is an ancient volcanic area where picturesque green valleys are cut by tumbling streams and mountain villages centre around delightful Romanesque churches.
The distinctive red Salers cattle graze throughout the region and the sound of their bells drifts down the valleys. We spent every long summer holiday here with our three children and passed our time visiting the local village fetes, exploring the hills, cooling off with a swim at the local lake in Mauriac five miles away and taking canoeing trips to the Dordogne whose upper reaches are just a 20 minute drive away.
If you can visit in the Spring you will find wonderful displays of mountain flowers and the snow stays on the high passes until April or May. Each season here has its own distinctive attraction!
The Cantal is a beautiful and remote region of France, little known by British holiday makers. It is an ideal destination who wish to holiday away from the crowds and enjoy the distinctive culture of the area. Hiking, cycling, swimming or canoeing - the choiceis yours!
