On the next to last day of the tour-de-France, of 2005, I saw a "House" on top of an "Ice cream cone shaped" mountain. It may be a monestary or a small castle but there was only room for it on top of this pinnacle. Does anyone know what I'm talking about and can give me more information about it. The tour this day ended in Le Puy En Velay so i assume it was in the vicinity if not in the city.
Thanks for any assistance.

We are about to book a gite in Drugeac, near Mauriac and would love to hear from anyone living in Auvergne or Limousin with ideas on what to do and where to visit. In particular any good drives, as we are hoping to bring our new Mini to france and also loving walking. I hear that there is really good food, especially beef and cheese in Auvergne. I would love to hear about these. Any advice on English guidebooks to the region would also be very helpful.
