Auvergne, Aveyron and Ardeche
The French regions of the Auvergne, Aveyron and Ardèche are ideal destinations for nature lovers.
Here, you will find vast, green open spaces, deep cool forests, towering mountains (many of them extinct volcanoes) and valleys that plunge down to curving rivers and placid lakes.
The area then, is famous for a wide range of outdoor sports such as mountain biking, paragliding, climbing, potholing, canoeing, kayaking and hill walking. These regions are also well known for their fine cuisine, especially cheeses including the classics Cantal and Roquefort.
