For buying and selling property in Cournon d'Auvergne

Cournon d'Auvergne - a large Auvergne town

It is a common fallacy that everyone who wants to move to France is looking for a crumbling farmhouse in the country or a villa beside the sea. Appealing as these types of property may be, the convenience of town or city dwelling has its own attractions, and if this is the lifestyle that appeals to you, the town of Cournon d'Auvergne has much to offer. It is located in the heart of France, with excellent travel links by road, air and rail, and is surrounded by beautiful, fertile countryside, close to historic centres and near the Puy-de-Dôme's capital city, Clermont Ferrand.

A designated "Ville Fleurie", with parks and gardens

Cournon d'Auvergne may be a large town with industrialised areas, but it is attractive and extremely well equipped. Situated on the Allier River, the whole area is surrounded by beautiful countryside with plentiful opportunities for open air activities. Within the town itself there are lovely green places, parks and gardens, and what's more, Cournon is designated a "Ville Fleurie", meaning that in summer it becomes a riot of colour with stunning floral displays.

All amenities on offer

In town you can find everything you need, with doctors, schools, banks, shops, supermarkets and sports facilities. For those who love the French dining experience there are also numerous cafés and restaurants. Cournon has its share of cultural events which take place throughout the year, and is particularly notable for its atmospheric Christmas markets.

Out and about

The Puy-de-Dôme is an interesting department, and its central location makes it a great place to begin an exploration of the Massif Central area of France. Visit, of course, the main town of Clermont Ferrand, but also make time to see the many pretty smaller towns and villages which lie along the banks of the Allier. It's a largely agricultural region, and the pretty countryside is ideal for outdoor sports such as walking and pony trekking, with canoeing and swimming possible in or on the river. The terrain is volcanic and sometimes mountainous, and affords some spectacular views.

How to get there

The airports to use to get you to the area include Saint Etienne, Lyon, Rodez and Limoges, with flights from budget airlines available. Clermont Ferrand is easily accessible by train from Paris, and Cournon is found close to the A711 and A75 auto routes, lying along the D12/D52.

Property prices and availability in and around Cournon d'Auvergne

Property in the area around the town is often keenly priced, with some very good bargains to be found. The surrounding countryside offers traditional stone farmhouses, both renovated and ready to move into or for renovation, at prices that are half what you might expect to pay in other regions of France.
