1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?


Just taking in all the fantastic scenery of the Auvergne around Le Mont Dore, but
the highlight was walking to the top of Puy de Sancy (over 1800m high) and back
via the the ridges on both sides of the valley

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?


The area is ideal for walkers or most kinds of outdoor activities. There are
lots of waymarked and signposted trails, that range from gentle woodland
strolls to full mountain hikes.

Le Mont Dore is a small resort town - it was busy in late July but not crowded
and there are plenty of places to eat and drink. It also hosts a number of
music festivals - the Retro Rock festival was on while we were there, with
bands playing for free at a number of cafes and bars around the town.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


We travelled independently to the Auvergne and stayed for a week at a friendly
bed and breakfast run by Caroline and Matt. They are well integrated with the
local community and businesses, and make every effort to reduce environmental
impacts in the way they run their business.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?


We really enjoyed the week in the Auvergne it is very unspoilt and it is an area
you can "get away from it all".

Really east driving route from UK, ideal accommodation choice for couples or
Families.

As an out-of season ski resort, it was surprisingly busy. Local traders were not
short of passing business and the surroundings were so beautiful they could be
enjoyed simply.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?


Our three teenage children claimed it was the best vacation we've had in
years...that's high praise indeed! Relaxed, easy to find something to enjoy in
stunning surroundings, with a friendly, quality service offered by attentive
hosts - thank you Matt & Caroline!
