We are all aware of the environmental impact of our car trips. Going to holidays produce a significant amount of CO2 notably when we drive for a fair distance for a change of scenery...

So if the "light mobility" tempts you, the Mont Dore station is here to welcome you. A taxi cab can eventually make the junction to your accomodation.
