The route below will not indicate many a navigation system. But it bypasses the hustle and bustle of Paris and it's cheaper. Because among other things the "autoroute de l'arbre" is cheaper in terms of toll.
From the Netherlands you drive towards Paris. Just after the tunnels of the Charles de Gaulle airport, take the N104 / A104 exit. This is the outer ring around Paris, also called route Francilienne. Follow this road until the exit A6 direction Lyon.
Then you drive the A6 towards Lyon until you come across the A77. This is the road you want to drive: the autoroute de l'arbre. A nice highway with little traffic. Nice detail: the different tree species are indicated on the side of the road. You drive the A77 all the way out. He eventually changes to N7 to Moulins.
From Moulins you can take the fast N79 to Montmarault and then via St Eloy les Mines to < b>St Gervais d'Auvergne drive. During the day it is worth taking the nicer route via St Pourcain sur Sioule, a little further after Moulins (N7) the D46 which then becomes the D987 (Chantelle, Bellenave) all the way to St Gervais d'Auvergne.
Our holiday domain 3Etangs is located in the small hamlet (with four houses) Le Fal. This is about 2 kilometers before St Gervais d'Auvergne, so pay close attention to our sign with 3Etangs on an old carriage on the left side of the road.
