Things to do in the Sancy
There are so many things to do here, we cannot tell you all. You will find brochures in our house, we can tell you personally about the things to do and on the website of the local tourism office Sancy you can find everything.
In summer this area is ideal for hiking, cycling, motorriding or car drives, cultural and active outings. This is the region of the volcanoes and you will see lots of domes around you. To learn and experience more about volcanoes we advise a visit to Vulcania or the Volcan de Lemptegy. Both at about an hour drive from our house. Near to us you will find Besse-et-St-Anastaise, a medieval village with small streets and squares, lots of restaurants and little shops.
Just above our house there is a jumping point for parapenters, you can jump from there or from the Pic St Pierre that you can see from our house.
In wintertime you can ski in Super Besse (20 minutes), alpine skiing or ‘langlauf’ whatever you prefer. You can go there by car or take the free bus in Besse. It is a very family skiing resort, they organise a lot of things for children.
