"Music valley" - the High Allier heritage area
one of France's hidden treasures

A heritage area in every sense - music, history, culture and environment
In the heart of the Auvergne, and just off the A75 motorway, "Music-valley" is the High valley of the river Allier and its tributaries around the small towns of Brioude and Langeac, in the department of Haute Loire. It includes the communes of Brioude, Vieille Brioude, Saint Ilpize, Villeneuve d'Allier, Blassac, Lavoûte Chilhac, Chilhac, Aubazat, Reilhac, and Langeac.
Well away from any mass tourism area, this part of the Auvergne has no large hotels or holiday resorts; accommodation is provided by small hotels, gites and holiday cottages, bed and breakfasts or campsites.  Nothing flash, but plenty of good quality...

Music in the Auvergne
"Music-valley" is the high valley of the river Allier, covering the rural district areas of Brioude and Langeac, in the department of Haute Loire, Auvergne,  southern France.  
The music season in the valley is a relaxed affair, and unique in rural France by its extent and its duration. The venues are mostly small, the performers good - often top quality, but the prices reasonable. Unlike any other summer music programme in rural France (and there are plenty of them), this is a fringe without a festival, two months of music for pleasure, organised by musicians themselves, volunteers, villages and cultural associations.
