In the heart of the splendid Auvergne region, Le Mont Dore is a traditional mountain village that becomes a very popular family ski resort each winter. And since this is where the Dordogne River rises, the air is guaranteed to be clean and rejuvenating.
The resort of Le Mont Dore prides itself in offering a great ski holiday for all age groups. As such, it is one of six towns in the Sancy Massif to hold Famille Plus certification as a family-friendly destination. You’ll find accommodation, activities, restaurants and other entertainment that are especially suitable for parents and their children.
Additionally, these resorts have everything you need to make the most of your stay. The broad range of accommodation features something to suit every budget, whilst the shopkeepers and artisans will be delighted to introduce you to local specialities.
Rising to an elevation of 1,886 m, the Puy du Sancy is the highest volcano in the Massif Central and offers the perfect playground for skiing enthusiasts. Its 360-degree panorama will simply take your breath away and you can reach it either on foot or by cable car. You can also explore three different ski areas: Super-Besse, Le Mont Dore and Chastreix-Sancy.
When the snow falls each winter, the sides of the mountain become ski slopes that are accessible to everyone, from beginners to advanced skiers. Other activities you can enjoy as a family include: snowboarding, snowscoot, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing.
