2016. Auvergne chosen by Lonely Planet as one of the top ten regions of the world to visit.

 ”Auvergne has long been overlooked for being too peaceably rural. But that’s all changing, as French travellers weary of tourist-clogged Riviera’s seek escape here. The Auvergne has responded by reinventing itself with ambitious art projects and a portfolio of wilderness adventures, without ever losing its small-town charisma."
