Auvergne is part of the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region of France. It comprises the four departments of Allier, Puy de Dome, Cantal and Haute Loire.

Auvergne is one of France’s ancient provinces.The modern Auvergne region is made up of the historic province, plus an area in the north known as le Bourbonnais. Apart from the north of the region, Auvergne is essentially a land of mountains and valleys, with peaks culminating at over 1800 metres (around 6,000 ft) and large areas of rather sparsely inhabited uplands.

It is a region reputed for its “great outdoors”, its natural environment, its old towns and villages, and its rich historic heritage.

The region is home to a chain of volcanoes known collectively as the “chaîne des Puys”. The last confirmed eruption was around 4040 BCE.
