  • Beautiful Lake of volcanic origin, more recent eruption in metropolitan France. Around the Lake, beautiful ballad.

  • From very deep lake of the formation of volcanoes. Its particularity: surface waters do not mix with the deep waters. Very beautiful natural site still wild. Preserve him. Stick with it because there is no other like it.

  • A beautiful place for a family walk. Be careful though to come well shod, the end of the tour of the Lake is in very rugged terrain. Children from 4-5 years can make the only ride without be worn if they tend to walk and are well shod (Finally I like wear my daughters for a walk but it is a personal choice ;-)) and then as is the Auvergne, even in summer the weekend there is a very reasonable crowd.

  • Disappointment on the entire line. Non-existent home. the room does not correspond to the publicity photo. Kitchen any that is not worthy of the "Toques D'Auvergne" classification. Entrance Motley, surprising combination of foie gras poile shrimp and salmon smoked. Arctic char are undercooked (I do like not rare) service... we are far from a gourmet restaurant!
