Our favourite places in Clermont-Ferrand

Gourmet addresses

Firstly, your Hotel Eklo Clermont-Ferrand team recommends two small restaurants they like very much, and which are friendly, gourmet-oriented and environmentally responsible. Lard et la Manière offers generous cuisine made using market-sourced produce. This is a great place to enjoy a leisurely meal on the terrace, at noon or in the evening, or to get a snack to go. Also check out Myrtille and its vegan cuisine, for breakfast, lunch or afternoon tea, and discover its vegetable, local and seasonal creations accompanied by an organic tea or a local lemonade. Finally, taste the best cheeses from the region at Nivesse. Saint-Nectaire, Cantal, Bleus and more await you there and all are compliant with the eco-cheese charter!


Market shopping in Clermont

Every Sunday, less than half an hour away on foot from your Hotel Eklo Clermont-Ferrand Eklo, you can find the Puces des Salins. This huge flea market is an essential for Clermontois and a must-see for visitors. Professionals rub shoulders with amateurs and offer books, clothes, toys, décor items and much more, including local products such as lace and vintage souvenirs from the Michelin company at unbeatable prices. Two Sundays a month, you can continue your shopping in the Place Jaude, where a farmers' market takes place. Here, you’ll discover tasty cheeses, charcuteries, vegetables, and other produce from the region ...

Clermont-Ferrand is a city where life is good. There’s no shortage of fine places to eat or shop, even for those on the tightest budgets. Your Hotel Eklo Clermont-Ferrand team are happy to share their tips!
