Auvergne

Château de Montcombroux is situated in the Auvergne region. A beautiful, centrally located region in France with Clermont-Ferrand as the capital. Auvergne is the green heart of France, all natural with its own flora and fauna. The unique Vulcania theme park is also located here, and off course the theme park LE PAL at Dompiere-sur-Besbre.
Auvergne is characterised by a great deal of surviving medieval heritage, including many churches in the Romanesque style and renowned castles, including Château de Montcombroux. Auvergne also offers breath-taking nature, pristine forests, beautiful (fishing) lakes (including Lac de Guéry, Lac de Servières and Lac Pavin) and vast volcanic landscapes with specific vegetation and crater lakes.

Not far from Château de Montcombroux lies the Volcanoes Regional Nature Park. This natural park contains the Chaîne des Puys (or Monts Dômes), the Massif du Sancy (or Monts Dore), the Artense highlands and the Cézallier, and, lastly, the Monts du Cantal. At 395,000 hectares, it is the largest regional natural park in France. In the winter langlaufers and cross-country skiers flock to one of the winter sport centres that the region has to offer (Sancy, Cantal, Velay and Forez Montagne).

Art and history enthusiasts can indulge themselves in Auvergne. This part of France is home to many churches, cathedrals and basilicas in pure Romanesque style. The basilica of Notre Dame du Port in Clermont-Ferrand is not to be missed, which incidentally is included on the UNESCO World Heritage list. The castle in Cordès and the Church of Saint-Nectaire are definitely worth a visit. One of the well-known pilgrimages to Saint-Jacques de Compostela also runs through Auvergne and Montcombroux.

In addition to all of the must-see nature, art and culture sights, Auvergne also offers plenty of opportunities for sport and recreation. For sport enthusiasts there is, of course, the opportunity to play golf around our Château. While there are plenty of varied golf courses in the Auvergne region, Château de Montcombroux golf resort, with its 18-hole golf course, is the most extensive. Other sport and recreation activities in the immediate vicinity include horse riding, hunting, canoeing, carting, mountain biking, fishing, paragliding and trekking.
All in all, Auvergne is an endless region, divided into the Cantal, Haute-Loire, Puy-de-Dôme and lastly Allier departments, in which Château de Montcombroux golf resort is situated.
