Hôtel Les Cygnes
This is a small but modern hotel above a friendly bar and restaurant in the heart of the little lakeside resort of Sauteyras. The hotel directly overlooks the large, peaceful Lac d'Aydat. Sauteyras is a popular place for people coming out of Clermont Ferrand to visit, especially at the weekends. It consists of a scattering of small bars, restaurants and homes along the edge of Lac d'Aydat, a peaceful, broad stretch of water nestling in what was an active volcanic crater many thousands of years ago. There is an attractive sandy beach along the edge of the lake and many watersports - be they sailing, rowing or just swimming - are enjoyed here. The rooms here are modern and bright, as befits a building of this age, but comfortable too. Many have views across to the lake for you to watch the last of the daylight as it dies across the water and gently revives the following morning. You will find that the owners wish to offer you every possible convenience and will be as accommodating as they can. They are young and enthusiastic and also run the main beach-side restaurant down by the lake.
