La table du Clos
Chef David Casiez employs a daring, rigorous approach, giving his cuisine a taste of perfection. La Table du Clos celebrates gastronomy and Auvergne in a former coaching inn with a very 18th century style. Local products are given pride of place: aromatic herbs from Paslières, butter and faisselle from Palladuc and cheeses from the Fromagerie de Ris. As for meat, the aged beef and rack of lamb are also sourced from Auvergne, along with Arctic char from Forez. Meals are served around the fireplace in winter. In summer, you’re invited to relax on the terrace overlooking the hotel grounds.
Clos St Eloi, The Originals Relais offers the best of Auvergne in a romantic, well-preserved environment. An emotionally charged experience at the heart of a majestic natural setting.
Auvergne and Puy-de-Dôme offer a stunning natural environment, of which Hotel The Originals Clos Saint Éloi’s grounds offer a taste. There are several nature walks to enjoy all around Thiers: in Livradois-Forez regional natural park or the Auvergne Volcanoes. Alain also recommends an invigorating getaway to the Credogne springs and the village of Chateldon.
TRAVEL THROUGH TIMEA visit to Thiers, capital of the French cutlery industry, is highly recommended by Alain. This charming city, which boasts magnificent architectural surprises, has kept all its charm of yesteryear. Six centuries of craftsmanship, with many cutlers ready to unveil their treasures. Next, head for the châteaux of Auvergne to discover Ravel, Aulteribe, La Barge, Vollore, Les Martinanches, La Chassaigne...
AUVERGNE VOLCANOESThe famous Chaîne des Puys is located only 40 minutes from Thiers, just past Clermont-Ferrand. You simply must take a trip to admire some of the 80 volcanoes that dot the landscape. This walk, extending for nearly 32 km between Maar de Beaunit and Narse d'Espinasse, leads to the puys (volcanic hills) of Dôme, Jumes, Coquille and Pariou, as well as the twin craters of La Vache and Lassolas...
LE FOREZHead south and prepare yourself for a full-scale natural experience in the Forez mountains. In the town of De Ambert, famous for its cheese, you can discover the talent of the Master Papermakers of Moulin Richard de Bas and board one of the Agrivap association’s railcars to take you to Chaise Dieu and its Abbey.
