About Auvergne

An Expressions tailor-made holiday to Auvergne combines a dramatic landscape with mediaeval attractions, transporting visitors back in time for an authentic and enchanting experience. Auvergne's landscape is dramatic and evocative, its rolling expanse punctuated by mountainous inclines and craggy gorges. Shaped by ancient volcanic activity, this landscape has spawned dynamic towns and villages, which are moulded around this wild natural environment. Hilltop towns and monuments still adorn these peaks, providing a fascinating glance back to mediaeval life and prompt consideration of how the resident communities have developed through the centuries. There is much to explore during a holiday in Auvergne, including remnants of mediaeval architecture with churches and chateaux emphasising the region's vivid historical context. Explore this enchanting atmosphere when visiting the capital of Clermont-Ferrand, home to the Romanesque Notre Dame du Port, and Le Puy de Velay, with its striking cathedral -- both of which are classified as UNESCO heritage sites. Our luxury hotels in Auvergne include charming thatched cottages, secluded chateaux and gastronomic delights. An excellent way to explore this region is with a self-drive touring holiday, perhaps discovering the gastronomy of Tarn and the Auvergne, or perhaps also visiting other parts of central France including the Dordogne.

Highlights of Auvergne

Mediaeval churches and chateaux, vineyards, mountainous and volcanic scenery, Puy de Dome Mountain, the lace-making centre of Le Puy de Velay with its cathedral, a UNESCO heritage site, and St Michel's Chapel. Capital Clairmont-Ferrand, with its gothic cathedral and Notre-Dame du Port, also an UNESCO heritage site.

Climate in Auvergne

The climate is fairly mild throughout the year, peaking between June and September, when average temperatures stretch beyond the mid-twenties.
