Kiting: a great family activity

Situated alongside the Auvergne's capital city of Clermont-Ferrand, the Gergovie plateau is popular with French kiting enthusiasts all year round.


Providing an opportunity to meet and chat with other kiters and to enjoy the ongoing festivities held here, this is also the site of the Cervolix Air Festival specially devoted to kiting and wind-based sports, held on the second weekend of October.

Here, you will find both international specialists and amateurs. No fewer than 30,000 people come along to admire the skills involved in the creation of these marvellous kites of all shapes and colours.


Entre sport d’équilibre et jeu, souvent familial, le cerf-volant donne libre cours à l’imagination. Sculptures volantes qui s’approchent et s’éloignent du spectateur, ils sont métamorphoses de couleurs et de formes, une recherche et un plaisir à la portée de tous, une activité ouverte, simple et nature.


In all shapes and colours.
