Central southern France - Auvergne & Limousin.

Most the central southern French regions of Auvergne and Limousin consist of unspoilt hill and mountain country. Sparsely populated, it is an area with a few popular resorts, but beyond that thousands of square kilometres of open hills, valleys and countryside. The uplands are crossed by deep river valleys, including the upper Dordogne, Allier, Loire, and Lot. Apart from two regional capitals, Limoges, the capital of Limousin, and Clermont Ferrand the capital of the Auvergne, this is a region of small rural towns and villages, a region far from the madding crowds. It's a region for relaxing, where nature can be enjoyed to its full extent.
Most of the gites listed on this page are in very rural locations.
Visit the Gitelink Auvergne Guide for more information on the beautiful Auvergne region.
