Charming small town of Puy-de-Dôme, in region Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes, La Sauvetat takes place about twenty kilometers from Clermont-Ferrand. It is located near Montpeyroux, St. Sandoux and Champeix.

Former small fortified medieval village, La Sauvetat experienced human occupation from the Gallo-Roman, as evidenced by the remains found on site. Founded in the late thirteenth century, the village was, until the French Revolution, the seat of a Commandery of the Order of St. John of Jerusalem.

Today La Sauvetat continues to attract many visitors because of its geographical proximity to some of the most beautiful sights in the region, but also for its rich architectural and cultural heritage to admire during your stay in the village.
