The Cantal is the most southern 'département' of the region Auvergne, and our campsite is situated in the most southern part of it, just in the corner between the provinces of the Lot and the Aveyron. This small part of France has a gentle micro-climate: hence the nickname of "Nice du Cantal" at the entrance of Maurs. The region east of the village of Maurs is called "La Châtaigneraie", due to the many chestnut trees planted in this area.
A taste of what's happening in "La Châtaigneraie" is available on the official tourist office site La Châtaigneraie.

For a daytrip in the surrounding area there are numerous opportunities, such as:
