No one is ever indifferent when seeing these vast expanses, this land so near the sky, for the first time. Here, there are no buildings, no department stores, and no traffic jams, either… In the areas between the Monts Dore and the Monts du Cantal, visitors leave all that far behind, and are captivated by immense pastures, where cows graze in peace, by villages scattered over the plateau and by the rounded shapes and bumps in the landscape that was moulded by glaciers.
