Central southern France - Auvergne & Limousin.
Most the central southern French regions of Auvergne and
consist of unspoilt hill and mountain country. Sparsely
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.
