The Auvergne - region of the Massif Central of France.

Situated just to the north of the Cevennes and Aveyron, the Auvergne is often neglected by holidaymakers heading further south.

 

The winters in the Auvergne can be quite harsh.

Dawn in the Auvergne, here the characteristic ‘Puys’ (the cores of old volcanoes) can be seen poking up from the mist down in the valley.

Chateaux abound, both intact and ruined ...
