Setting up a business in the Combrailles


The Combrailles area enjoys a strategic position in regard to the main economic regions. At the nub of the motorway system in France with the intersection of the A71 and A89, the Combrailles area benefits from the proximity of Clermond Ferrand airport linked with a well developed road network, making it a strategic crossroads for business projects.

Several international groups ( Acerías Aubert y Duval – Rockwool ) have seized this opportunity. These large groups work alongside small and medium sized companies and all contribute to local development (traders, artisans, local services).


In addition, an active and booming wood industry constitutes a major part of the Combrailles economy.

The traditional activity of agriculture still represents the backbone of the Combrailles human and social fabric. Even if many farms have disappeared in recent decades, agriculture is still at the heart of the economic activity of the Combrailles area. It has created the landscapes in this country of hedged farmland and pastures. It has established its own identity, far from intensive farming and productivity, notably with the development of free-range production and the creation of the TERROIR DES COMBRAILLES brand.


The tourist industry in the Combrailles area has not been idle. Side by side with permanent constructions (for example the holiday village of Confolant near Vulcania..), various types of accommodation are proposed by different structures, all of which are involved in the development of the region.
