La Bourboule

FRANCE AUVERGNE PUY DE DOME LA BOURBOULE La Bourboule (pop 2,030) straddles the upper reaches of the Dorgodne River and offers another spa and curative option specialising in the treatment of respitatory and skin ailments.  The town is decorated with the 'usual' Belle Époque architecture, and it further promotes itself as specialising in eco-tourism and kid's activities, being listed both as a Green Resort and a Station Kid

Its Parc Fenestre [+33 473264439, www.parcfenestre.com, ad/ch €5/3] can be accessed south of the village centre at Impasse du Belvédère, and it leads to a kid-centric forested space that provides the best part of a day's fun for a family on the petit train, giant toboggans, bump cars, mini-golf and other adventure activities. You can then catch a télécabine (cable car)  to the elevated Plateau de Charlannes for a more pristine environment.  Hikers can continue to the Roche Vendeix peak south of Le Mont-Dore.
