Chateau de Parentignat

The chateau of Parentignat was built between 1707 and 1720 by Anne-Francois de Lastic, Marquess of Sieujac and Captain of a Royal infantry regiment, on the foundations of an old fortress. The chateau remains in the family to this day and is the object of an extensive restoration programme.The landscaped gardens can be viewed from the terrace at the back of the chateau, which is lined with heirloom roses and fantastic orange trees in their original 18th century pots. The gaiety of this green and pleasant "natural" garden provides a stark contrast with the formal geometry of the lawns in the front courtyard which have been restored recently, along with the avenue of lime trees leading to the chateau's entrance.The chateau has always been renowned for being so sumptuously appointed. Its furniture and art collections have always been exceptional.

A Wonderful Chateau!

The reconstruction of the chateau has added to its historic charms. A great place to visit and the guide is very knowledgeable and "passionate" in providing descriptions. The Library is outstanding as is the garden [a fine example of an "English Garden"].

Wonderful church

This Romanesque church is really something. It looks big, but nothing special from outside. But inside there is an amazing surprise. The painted columns emphasize the beauty of this church. One of the most beautiful I have seen in my journey around France

I would not bother visiting this town just for the Tour de L'Horloge

Apart from the Tour de L'Horloge this town is quite unremarkable I guess we have been spoilt by the beautiful towns in Provence and the Ardeche but I would not bother a detour if this is not on route

Not Roman art

An average expereince that seemed to promise so much more. Not much in the way of roman art which we expected and only one section contained any english translation ( I know we shouldnt be so lazy).It is mainly a museum of medieval life working the vines

Des pilotes d'helicopteres pour votre découverte des Monts d'Auvergne.

Quelle expérience fascinante et inoubliable que de survoler la région. Plusieurs formules de baptêmes de l'air sont proposées, avec survol plus ou moins long. Moi, j'adore le survol des lacs de cratère et du Puy-de-Dome' évidemment. ...Le majestueux volcan éteint. Très beaux parcours proposés avec des professionnels chevronnés. En ce qui me concerne, pas de vertiges à déplorer. Tout se passe très bien.Il y a même la possibilité de piloter l'hélicoptère une heure avec les instructions de base du pilote: super!!!Belle expérience et beau cadeau à offrir à un proche pour un anniversaire. Bon vol et profitez du paysage, et des variétés que nous offre Dame Nature vue du ciel.Prix intermédiaires mais c'est une expérience unique.
