Volcano Auvergne

From our hotel restaurant in Auvergne

A great escape between
volcanic landscapes and the softer contours of the Causses


Welcome to Marcolès in Cantal! Between the Parc des Volcans d’Auvergne (Auvergne Volcanoes Park) to the north-east and the Parc des Causses du Quercy to the south-west, our handsome medieval village is an invitation to the gentle pleasures of the Cantal's Châtaigneraie region. In summer, the Cantal mountains, the Puys chain and the valley of the Lot, with villages classed amongst the most beautiful in France, offer a wonderful playground for walkers and explorers. In winter, the Lioran ski area, nestled amid the pines of the Cantal massif, offers 44 runs and 60 km of fun.

Staying at our hotel and gourmet restaurant in Auvergne, you will be close to two great French sites (Grands Sites de France): Puy Mary, the most famous of the Cantal summits and Conques, on the Aveyron branch of the Camino de Santiago. Still in Aveyron, Rodez is a major site of the Midi-Pyrénées region (1 hour by car), its exceptional heritage includes the majestic Gothic cathedral with its highly decorated sandstone bell-tower, and the Soulages, Fenaille and Denys Puech museums. The neighbouring department, the Lot, "Terre des Merveilles" (Land of Wonders), is packed with sites and visits: Figeac, Rocamadour, Saint-Cirq-Lapopie, Gouffre de Padirac…

Cantal is part of the Auvergne, one of the biggest protected areas in Europe. The Auberge de la Tour in Marcolès is the ideal base for exploring this exceptional region, an eternal invitation to enjoy walking, mountain-biking, winter and white-water sports...
