Description Puy de Sancy is the highest point on the horse-shoe shaped massif south of the village Mont Dore, and is the highest mountain in France outside the Alps and the Pyrenees. There are many routes to the summit, including a cable car. The mountain is also host to a ski-centre, making the area very popular both summer and winter.
