Have a spa holiday with holiday rentals Vichy
Vichy, in the Auvergne region of central France, offers plenty for the visitor considering a Vichy holiday rental. It is renowned for its many thermal spa houses, which have provided healing and wellness to visitors for over 400 years, earning Vichy the title 'Queen of Spa Towns'. The town is also a source of natural mineral waters, which in many public springs are available for free.
Travellers booking a Vichy holiday rental can enjoy the Allier river which, together with the many local lakes and waterways, provides opportunities for boating, angling and other water pursuits. Holiday rentals in Vichy also benefit from the nearby Massif Central mountains which are superb for walking or cycling amidst dramatic scenery. Culture lovers will find a home in the Vichy Town Opera, which hosts concerts and events year round, from classical to ballet. Those who enjoy a flutter will be well served by the town's casino which boasts tables and slots open daily until the small hours.
France wouldn't be France without cheese and wine, and the local winegrowing area of St Pourcain is one of the oldest in the country, producing wines which can be considered alongside those of the nearby Loire vineyards. Perhaps the most well known regional cheese is La Comtesse, a variety of camembert traditionally wrapped in bark.
Holiday rentals in Vichy give visitors plenty to do, despite the size of the town, and being away from the tourist traps will make for a relaxing yet varied holiday. The nearby towns of Clermont-Ferrand and Moulins make an interesting day trip.
