We Love

  • Stay in a magnificent 19th century château, surrounded by scenic rural delights
  • The food is exceptional- sample some delicious Roquefort and renowned Aubrac beef
  • Take advantage of the car hire and explore the surroundings, full of beautiful lush greenery and the thermal spa region

Your Destination

Located in the region of Auvergne, 3 hours drive from Lyons (257km) the Chateau d’Ygrande sits on a hilltop, surrounded by its own 40 hectare park.

In this natural paradise, there is an abundance of activities to suit all ages, from mountain biking, horse riding and hiking, to bathing in thermal waters, or white water rafting.

A visit to the Auvergne Volcanoes Regional Nature Park is 'must' during your stay - the home of Volvic water, this region provides stunning scenery.

Souvigny Abbey and the ancient town of Moulins are also close by and well worth a visit.

Take advantage of added car hire
to explore with ease. (See next page to add.)
