Holiday Park; Winter sports; In the mountains
The environment of Super-Besse is characteristic of the Les Volcans national park, which is famous for the extinct volcanoes of Mont Dore and Puy Sancy. You will find a very wide range of activities in this area. 600 meters from the holiday complex there is a lake with a beach and a sunbathing area. You can also sail and windsurf here. There is an inline skating track but even more special, an off-road inline skating track! Another special sport here is the biathlon, but you can also enjoy hiking or tennis. From Super-Besse there is a cable car which brings you to an altitude of 1800 meters, from where you have a magnificent view of the surrounding area. In this area you can find medieval villages, Romanesque churches, fountains, mills, etc. In short, a region rich in natural beauty with plenty of opportunities for relaxation and lots of culture.
The holiday village is situated 56 km from Clermont-Ferrand and in the winter has plenty of options for skiers and runners. The ski-lifts for alpine skiing are situated 500 meters away. These bring you to the Grand Sancy ski area which lies at an altitude ranging from 1350-1885 meters. This ski area has a total length of 85 km. There are 285 snow cannons, 42 ski lifts, night skiing, a freestyle park for snowboarders and opportunities for snow-kiting (a kite towed on skis). The cross-country ski area has a total length of 120 km and begins just 200 meters from the holiday village. This area is known as the main ski area of France, primarily because of its variation in landscape which includes forests, mountains, volcanoes and frozen lakes. For children aged 3 months and up there is a creche and for children from 4 years of age there is a snow garden located at the beginning of the slopes. You are advised to make reservations. In the vicinity you will also find a super slide with tires, the medieval town of Besse-en-Chandesse, the medieval castle of Murol and of course, the volcano. In February there is the Snow Jazz Festival for music lovers.
