Top Things To Do In Cantal

Posted on 07. Sep, 2012 by in Destinations, Europe Travel, France, Press Trips

During my four days in Cantal, I’ve had the chance to experience all sorts of great things. Massages, great food, cute B&Bs, splendid scenery and more.

Here’s a map that lists what to do in Cantal, in my humble opinion. And that’s only a handful - there are in fact so many things to do you won’t want to leave!

My absolute favorites:

  • Les bains du Rouget: set in a beautiful valley, the spa offers gorgeous views of the area, and the soothing sound of the river nearby. There are many treatments available, as well as a large pool and jacuzzi.
  • Auberge de Concasty: Martine is one of the friendliest person I’ve ever met - and if that wasn’t enough, her cuisine will convince you. The inn is absolutely gorgeous, has large rooms and top notch customer service.
  • La ferme aux fromages: To learn more about the history of farming, the industrialization and of course, cheese tasting.
  • Restaurant le Bailliage: keyword here is mango salmon tartare. And I guess the chocolate fondant is not bad either.
  • Lac Saint-Étienne-Cantalès: one of the biggest lakes in the area, it also features a large and impressive dam, as well as a cute walking trail. Lots of sea sport facilities available.
