Situated between Saint-Étienne and Clermont-Ferrand, the Livradois-Forez area enjoys an exceptional location in the heart of the Livradois Forez Regional National Park, one of the largest in France.

Home to the tasty PDO Fourme d’Ambert cheese, the town of Ambert and its only round town hall in Europe or the inspirations of writers such as Vialatte, Pourrat and Romans.

When it comes to the environment, the mountain range of the Hautes-Chaumes du Forez and its expanse of heather moorland, akin to the Mongolian steppe, contain a rich biodiversity to the delight of all nature lovers!

As the stronghold of the “braiding” industry, this area is steeped in a historical past and the Joubert Group is one of the key players in the economic landscape.

In 2012, the local manufacturers, backed by the Puy-de-Dôme Chamber of Commerce and Industry, founded the association Travailler et Vivre en Livradois Forez (TVLF). This structure works to attract the talents of tomorrow to the Livradois Forez area.
