About the neighbourhood
Valcivieres is 11km from the historic town of Ambert which has banks and shops and cafe every thing you might need also car hire. There are lots of good places to eat mostly at lunch time and a good selection of supermarkets. A good place to visit is the historic paper mill Richard De Bas. Full information book available for local tourist attractions. All round the mill lots of walking trails in the natural forest and in the spring we are a blaze with wild flowers we also have the added benefit that when the weather is very hot ( heat wave) it is always 3 to 5 degrees cooler the higher up you live, and the temperature soon drops at night with a breeze down the mountains .
How to get there
Take the d 106 from Ambert up the moutain for 11km. We are this side of the village. The house name sign is outside. Gps 45.593938 3.800077
