Welcoming by the President

Dear Readers,

Ambert and its surrounding has a variety of activities to offer. You will find out about the festivals, cultural events and the best places to go to relax and unwind. You will find a beautifully preserved countryside with villages that have been sympathetically maintained and restored to preserve the authenticity of the area. Ambert is noted as one of the « most beautiful detours in France ». With museums, heritage tours, its impressive church and of course, not forgetting the « Fourme D’Ambert ». Explore the ancient streets that spiral around the church all lined with beautiful houses, colourfull facades and many interesting shops. Go up into the mountains to escape from it all, memorable hikes, thrilling mountain biking and horse riding. If you have a head for heights why not try out one of the many flying sports from taking a flight in a microlight plane to paragliding. During the summer a VIP visit awaits you at the tourist office every Monday between 11am and midday, come and have a drink and sample some of the local delicacies. We wish you all a wonderful stay and hope you will come and visit again !

Simone MONNERIE

The President of the Tourist Office
