About the neighbourhood
Valcivieres is 11km from the historic town of Amebert which has Banks and shops and cafes 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 Richard De Bas historic paper mill there hand made paper includes many wild flowers Full information book available for local tourist attractions All round the mill lots of walking trails in the natural forest in the spring we are ablaze of 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,the temperature soon drops at night with a cool breeze down the mountains.
How to get there
From Ambert take the D106 up the mountain for 11km. We are this side of the village. House name sign outside. Gps 45.593938 3.800077
