Domaine Le Besset is located in the Puy de Dôme - Auvergne - Massif Central. It is known for its clean air, beautiful and rugged nature, and a mostly pleasant climate. A region with many opportunities, both in sporting and cultural fields, and also ideal to enjoy some peace, environment and nature. Spring with its fields of wild flowers, the warm and sunny summer, autumn with its beautiful golden colours and beautiful winter frost gives one a lot to enjoy.

The Auvergne region is a rough area in the south central of France. The region is located in the Massif Central, an ancient volcanic massif which extends over almost one sixth of the total area of ​​France. In the Auvergne, also called the green lung of France, well-known rivers like the Dordogne, the Lot and the Allier have their origin here. It is also known for its many hot springs and mineral waters. Famous spas in the region are La Bourboule and Vichy.

The Auvergne has hundreds of volcanoes, like the Puy-de-Dôme for example, known for its slopes which are often included in the Tour de France. Just south of the Puy-de-Dome is the mass of Sancy, and behind that the Cantal, the largest European volcanic massif. The impressive geological formations are interconnected through the plateau Cézallier. This arose from successive massive lava flows carved by the glaciers of the Quaternary era.

In the southwest lies the Deves plateau. This is more than 60 km long and has over one hundred and fifty small volcanoes. Like Cézallier, this plateau was formed from stacked lava flows. The Auvergne has about 1,310,000 inhabitants, and nearly one third lives in the capital, Clermont-Ferrand. This city is also known as "ville noir," because the houses are built with black volcanic stone.
