Puy-de-Dome Holidays

The summit of Puy de Dome, a 1,464m extinct volcano of the Monts Domes, was once a place of worship for Celts and Romans, and for sorcerer's rituals. Today, the summit is still a place of enchantment - though now sporting a restaurant, museum and information centre - for all holiday visitors who enjoy its panoramic views. However you get there (the ascent is a gruelling leg of the Tour de France), best arrive early or late to avoid the crowds. Fittingly, this famous high point in Auvergne's lunar landscape gives its name to the department of Puy-de-Dome.
