At least 3 good reasons to discover the shop area of the Tourist Office of Carladès :
- find a selection of well-known and quality products from our local traders and producers-partners ;
- get the essential support for the practice of outdoor activities: hiking, cycling, mountain biking,
- go back home with a little souvenir of Cantal.
Whether you are alone, with your family or in a group, our range of products will make you want to get your hands on them!
Gastronomic products with the identity of our region!
Rich in quality local producers, it’s obvious you will find a selection of their flagship products and a real “gateway” to their own shops here.
There are more than thirty different products:
- sweet (biscuits, jams, honey, syrups…)
- savoury with pâtés, terrines, and other products of our artisan butchers / charcutiers
- local drinks: the essential Avèze, a product marked “Parc Naturel Régional des Volcans d’Auvergne”, made in Riom es Montagne/Cantal and local beers.
“Outdoor” in complete safety
Do you practice an outdoor activity (hiking, cycling, mountain biking…)? You will find the advice of our local experts at the Tourist Office and you will be able to get the IGN map or the topo-guide to accompany your explorations.
On foot, no fewer than 8 topo-guides are available for itinerant hiking (GR4/GR 400, GR 465) or local loop walks and hikes (PR), not to mention the IGN map of the Monts du Cantal, essential for walking through the largest volcano in Europe.
By bike, our selection of IGN maps will allow you to criss-cross the roads of the Cantal, between Vic-sur-Cère and Pays de Pierrefort, between Aurillac and Saint-Flour, in the Cézallier; and if you prefer to be directed, the cyclo-guide Cantal will help you discover Cantal by bike on 25 circuits.
Great value to set off in complete safety!
