In the north of the Auvergne region, less than three hours from Paris, the Allier department is located at the foothills of the Massif Central. Sharing its name with the wild river that crosses its landscapes, the Allier is the crossroads of the medieval languages of Oc and Oil and the homeland of thermal luxury with famous elegant spa towns like Vichy. This department is a mosaic of exceptional towns, character villages and captivating landscapes such as the ancient trees in the superb Tronçais oak forest, the 'Montagne bourbonnaise', the 'Bocage bourbonnais' and the Combraille, all of which are preserved sites of natural beauty.
