Not only is Le Mont Dore located in an area of outstanding natural beauty but it also benefits from a railway station. Our Auvergne holiday accommodation is only a couple of minutes walk away and so it is possible to travel here from the UK entirely by public transport with minimum impact on the environment. In summer there is a daily direct service to Paris. We are also only about 6.5 hours from the channel ports so again it is not necessary to travel here by plane.
We encourage guests to respect the flora and fauna within the Parc des Volcans and to take advantage of the tranquillity of the Nature Reserve within the Parc. For our part we do our utmost to recycle wherever possible and try always to use eco cleaning products.
At our Auvergne holiday accommodation we source all our cheeses, meat and most of our fruit, vegetables and jams locally. We work closely with local businesses to arrange equipment, tuition and guiding and encourage guests to visit the local cafes and restaurants, all of which are independently owned.
When renovating our Auvergne holiday accommodation we used only local artisans and have installed an ecological boiler to heat both the house and hot water. We can arrange tours of local farms to taste the local cheeses and there is a museum nearby where it is possible to see how people lived in this beautiful but harsh environment in previous centuries. We don’t charge high season supplements because we don’t want to discriminate against families and those working in the educational sector.
You can trust responsibletravel.com reviews because, unlike many other schemes, reviews can ONLY be written by people who we have verified have been on the holidays. In addition, we don't run these holidays ourselves - our only interest is giving you the best independent advice.
