Besse-et-Saint-Anastaise - Tourism in the Puy-de-Dôme

Enjoying a unique natural setting in the Sancy mountain area in the heart of the Auvergne Volcanic Regional Nature Park, the village of Besse-et-Saint-Anastaise features narrow paved streets, pretty boutiques and black lava stone houses with slate and lauze stone roofs. The medieval and Renaissance quarter is lovely to stroll around and home to historic buildings and monuments like the half-Romanesque, half-Gothic Saint-André church, which contains beautiful historiated capitals, the Maison de la Reine Margot, home to the Skiing museum (Musée du Ski), a bell tower and the Château du Bailli (former bailiff's castle). All this, as well as the many outdoor activities on offer in the surrounding countryside, make it an ideal destination for a summer or winter holiday.

As for fine food, Besse-et-Saint-Anastaise is located in the heart of AOC Saint-Nectaire production country. Attention all cheese lovers!
