Built on the edge of a nature reserve in the high alpine plains of the Auvergne region, about five hours south of Paris, sits this ancient 12-room farm restored into a Euro chic eco-lodge. Use it as a well-appointed base camp for mountain biking, fishing, and hiking in the Auvergne Volcano National Park and, in the winter, cross-country skiing. Rates start at about $130 a night.
