La Bourboule

A town in the Sancy at 24 km east of the Moulin de Serre, La Bourboule is famous for its thermal baths. The Spa treatments treat respiratory and skin diseases conditions. Wellness services (massages, hammam...) are also available.

A six km further east, Mont-Dore is also a Spa town; with cures for respiratory diseases and rheumatism treatments; we recommend visiting the neo-Byzantine style architecture, to discover the luxurious interior and France's oldest electric funicular railway. Le Mont-Dore is also known for its winter sports resorts: The cable car takes you in only a few minutes to a height of 1780 metres near the Puy de Sancy.

A little further to Clermont-Ferrand through the road of Lake Guery, you will find Orcival, a small village south of the chain of Puys with its Basilica, a masterpiece of the Romanesque Auvergne, the Cordès Castle, its beautiful park and landscaped gardens (by Lenotre in 1695).
