Montgreleix : great spaces allowing you to overlook at the same time Sancy and Cantal’s uplands.
Montgreleix is located in the Cezallier area, in-between two French counties: Puy de Dôme and Cantal. In the middle of summer pastures and vast meadows, you can practice horse or foot hiking, horse riding, mountain biking, fishing and explore wonderful landscape in this peaceful village.
Overhanging Montgreleix, 1476m (4842 ft.) long, there is Chamaroux Mount. The view at the top of the hill is exceptional, feel free to climb it.
Before climbing, look, it is very particular. The low part is green, whereas the top doesn’t have any vegetation.
Did you know?
A legend is saying that heat from an old volcano is still emerging and this is why snow is melting very rapidly and grass doesn’t grow!
