In an exceptional setting at the foot of the Puy de Dome, Grand Site de France and close to the largest French Natural Park, the Auvergne Volcanoes Natural Park and Vulcania European Park of Volcanism, is Clermont-Ferrand the preferred step. Its location is strategic: the heart of France and at the intersection of the axes of Europe, between the North and the South.
