Another great French road, which has featured in the Tour de France, and is although not particularly high still capable of being snow covered so beware.

Starting at Le Mont-Dore, the road climbs through the tree line and is a great fast flowing series of corners and straights with relatively wide and smooth tarmac.

There is a stopping area at the top, where the views are superb, the downhill section hugs the side of the mountain and has some stunning scenery, again going down through the trees with some great hairpin bends

A good road to drive in either direction, and highly recommended
