Monts du Forez

Recommended
A land of high stubble, jasseries (local farmhouses) and grazing herds, the Forez Mountains, in the heart of the Regional Nature Park of Livradois-Forez, offer a landscape of contrasts, which is often in the shadow of the fir trees. Yet up above, frequently obscured by mist and clouds, the vast and bare stretches of land on the mountaintops come as a surprise. This strange landscape becomes almost lunar in a certain light; granite rocks, deep peat bogs and broom bushes are all that this harsh terrain has to show for itself.
