On the doorstep of Clermont-Ferrand, come and experience the charm of Auvergne for a low-cost weekend that provides a real change of scenery. In Puy-de-Dôme there is truly a multitude of places to see, visit and explore on foot or by bicycle, such as Lake Chambon, Puy de Sancy, the Auvergne Volcanoes Regional Park, and much more. By booking a budget-priced hotel in Aubière, you will be able to enjoy all these natural beauty spots without needing to spend a fortune.

Explore Lyon without breaking the bank

For a different weekend, head for Lyon, capital of Gaul and a UNESCO World Heritage site. Its historic quarter is full of charm and unusual sights, and beckons you into its famous passageways, known as traboules. The lively wharves of the Rhone and the redeveloped wharves of the Saône are conducive to strolls and relaxation, while the esplanade de Fourvière provides a magnificent panoramic view of the city. These are just some of the landmarks worth seeing for an inexpensive weekend, staying in comfort at a hotel near Lyon.

A weekend in the capital doesn’t have to be outrageously expensive. By booking a room in a Paris hotel like the Parisiana, for two nights, you can stay in a lively district while staying within your budget. And then all the capital’s treasures will be yours! A walk along the Canal Saint-Martin or on the Champs-Elysées, a stroll in the picturesque Marais quarter, or time spent relaxing on the esplanade at the foot of the Eiffel Tower… Paris is an open-air museum. All you need do is frolic around its different quarters, look around you and stop awhile to appreciate its many riches. A low-cost weekend in Paris is possible if you think of it as a time for strolling around, getting away from it all.
