La Chaise-Dieu

The Chaise-Dieu plateau has a unique heritage and natural wealth. It offers a preserved, green nature, many valleys and forests. Hikers, let yourself be charmed by the forest walks that La Chaise-Dieu has to offer. Walking from La Chaise-Dieu is like sliding into this hilly plateau, crossed by the Borne, the Senouire, the Dore, sources of freshness!

On marked trails, suitable for all and accessible from spring to autumn, you will love picking wild fruits and mushrooms along the way!

Allègre

Labelled "Petite Cité de Caractère" in 2017, Allègre offers a wide range of landscapes, woods and paths that are worth a visit! Walking in Allègre is a way of enjoying the fresh air, meeting Mont-Bar and Mont Baury, two ancient volcanoes on whose side the small village is nestled.

Here again, cranberries, blackberries, wild strawberries and a wide array of mushrooms can be found on these exceptional trails. This will sooth heavy legs...

Saint-Paulien

From La Chaise-Dieu, you cross the Velay, which was Saint-Paulien’s capital 2,000 years ago. The cité ruesienne celebrates its past and Gallo-Roman remains thanks to its unmistakable collegial church, but also its historical museum.

Many woods and paths surround the village of Saint-Paulien. You will discover the most surprising fauna and flora and can also pick mushrooms. For anglers, the region offers many trout-filled rivers. 

Le Puy-en-Velay

Leaving from Via Podiensis, the main road in Europe to Santiago de Compostela, Le Puy-en-Velay is an exceptional site. Protected from the ravages of time, the city has many surprises in store for visitors. Its 35-hectare protected area with the Cathedral and the Hôtel-Dieu (listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site under the Santiago pilgrimage routes) testifies to the richness of its architecture and history. A city of art, an artistic and cultural centre, a place for exchanges and meetings, Le Puy-en-Velay offers many activities all year round (festivals, traditional and historical festivals). The city is also an ideal holiday destination to discover a region whose volcanism has shaped the beauty of its landscapes.

For those who like to discover a region by walking, Le Puy-en-Velay is a real land of coconut. Indeed, there are few places in France that can boast so many long-distance hiking trails in their historic centres.
