An overview of the Massif

A UNIQUE MOUNTAIN ENVIRONMENT

carte-massif

Stretching from Aigoual in the south to the department of Lozère, passing through Aubrac and the Ardeche mountains in the east to Auvergne, the Massif Central Mountains offer diverse horizons and unique conserved areas.

The mountains are not wild, untamed areas but instead comprise welcoming open landscapes shaped by humans.

The Massif Central is a region in the true sense of the term: the natural environment and geography have forged the character of the local people, who, through their hard work, have created a landscape and a culture.

WELLBEING AND GOOD HEALTH
A wide range of Nordic activities suitable for all levels are on offer in this gentle mountain environment, which also provides pure air, clear water and tranquillity.

ENJOYING LIFE AND DISCOVERING THE REGION
The Massif Central is a naturally upbeat mountain environment where visitors can try out local cuisine and produce (cooked meats, aligot, green lentils, pork and cabbage hotpot, pedigree Salers and Aubrac beef and AOC labelled cheese) and discover landscapes and built heritage (Romanesque churches, alpine pasture huts, mountain pasture cabins, traditional farms, lava stone houses with lauze roofs).

The mountain range is a true mosaic with unique relief characterised by volcanoes and humankind.
Nowadays, the mountain range is the ideal place for you to enjoy your favourite leisure activities. Each to their own is the watchword: everyone should follow their own rhythm and style.
