10 day hiking holiday in the Livradois-Forez

…a stream ripples under the stone bridge, which is no more than a large stone and only just makes it across. You walk up the old stone stairs and venture over the stone. The meadows stretch out in front of you and you continue the path under the trees.
Above you hovers a large bird, is it a red kite or a buzzard?

Hiking in the Livradois-Forez

The Livradois Forez Regional Natural Park is a hilly landscape with vast green fields, old volcanoes, medieval castles, picturesque villages and varied forests. The nature in the area has so much beauty! That is why owners of three chambres d'hôtes offer a 9-day hiking package so that you can optimally experience nature in different parts of the park.

Participants in 2021 said about this;
“We enjoyed our hiking package in the Auvergne! We can recommend this trip to everyone. The combination of different chambre d'hôtes makes it a lot of fun.”
