Bibendum
This route skirts the Puy de Sancy (1 885m), providing a view of the range from all angles. Begin with the Col de la Croix-St-Robert and admire the stunning view westwards over the Millevaches plateau, and to the east over Lake Chambon as far as the Livradois mountains. The road runs down through the steep slopes and ravines of the lovely Vallée de Chaudefour to Besse-en-Chandesse. This winter sports resort makes an ideal base for excursions into the massif. Continue in a southwesterly direction to Lake Pavin, one of Auvergne's most beautiful lakes, nestled in a crater and surrounded by forest. Fishing and boating possible. Beyond, Lake Chauvet also lies in a crater caused by volcanic eruptions. The road continues towards La Tour-d'Auvergne and on to Roche Vendeix. A 15min walk along a footpath will take you up to the summit of the rock (1 131m), where the ruins of an old fortress can still be seen. Enjoy the fine panorama over La Bourboule and the Monts Dore.
