The Area: Pitelet, Nr St Rémy Sur Durolle, Puy De Dome(63), Auvergne
Our small rural village of Pitelet in the commune of St Victor Montvianeix nestles amongst the wooded mountains of the picturesque Puy de Dôme, one of four 'départements' which make up the Auvergne region in the heart of France. At an altitude of 750 metres, the air is clear, the water from natural springs and the area rich in flora, fauna and birdlife which makes it ideal for those who want to "get away from it all" and enjoy the area's tranquility and unspoiled surroundings - ideal for exploring on foot or bicycle or just sitting and reflecting. Our commune is 25kms across, has an area of over 11000 acres, has 57 hamlets, is criss-crossed by 300 kilometres of pathways, varies in altitude from 250 metres to 1232 metres and has a population of 6 people per square kilometre. That, to us at least, is tranquil!
If you prefer more organised activities, there are water sports, outdoor heated swimming pool, mini-golf and tennis and squash courts available for hire around the lake at nearby St Rémy sur Durolle (11 kms) as well as restaurants and cafes. The town itself has a small selection of essential shops, bars and cafes and boasts a small Sunday morning market.
Our nearest large town, Thiers, has been the centre of French knife- and cutlery-making for six centuries, a fact that is celeated at its fascinating Musée de la Coutellerie. The region is the home of the famous "Sabatier" kitchen knife and "la coutellerie" is still very much a cottage industry, still practised by individuals working in a modest workshop attached to their village home.
The Montagne Thiernoise forms the northern part of one of France's beautiful natural regional parks, the Livradois-Forez, and a short distance by car to the south-west is the stunning chain of volcanoes from which the 'département' gets its name and its highest peak, the Puy de Dôme accessible on foot or by train
