Le Mont-Dore, formerly called Mont-Dore-les-Bains, is a commune in the Puy-de-Dôme department in Auvergne in central France.GeographyLe Mont-Dore is located in the Massif Central, on the right bank of the Dordogne River not far from its source, and 50km by road S.W. of Clermont-Ferrand. The Monts Dore close the valley towards the south.Thermal springsThe thermal springs of Le Mont-Dore, now numbering twelve, were known to the Romans. Bicarbonate of soda, iron and arsenic are the principal ingredients of the waters, which are used both for drinking and bathing. Hot baths are characteristic of the treatment; they are believed to be efficacious for tuberculosis, bronchitis, asthma, and nervous and rheumatic paralysis. Due to the elevation and exposure of the valley, the climate of Le Mont-Dore is relatively severe, and the season only lasts from 15 June to 15 September. The bath-house was rebuilt in 1891-1894.Ski resortLe Mont-Dore is a ski resort with runs on the slopes of the Puy de Sancy and the Puy Ferrand. 30 runs account for 42 km of downhill skiing, served by a number of lifts of different types. There are also 25 km of cross-country trails.SightsIn the town park, along the Dordogne, relics of the old Roman baths have been collected. The surrounding country, with its fir woods, pastures, waterfalls and mountains, is very attractive. To the south is the Puy de Sancy (1886 m or 6189 ft), the loftiest peak of central France.
