We visited over two days - the first was poisonous with heavy rain, snow lying on the ground in the second week of May. However, the following day, the sky had largely cleared of cloud and you could see this very strange volcanic plug in all its glory. It's impressive from afar as well as from nearby.

After a windy drive through the mountains you arrive at mont gerbier de jonc. It is quite a climb to the top and there are ropes along the path to help you up. Beware - suitable footwear is essential.
At the base there is plenty of free parking, a small selection of stalls and s few eateries- the one we went to claims to have the source of the river Loire there - however, the food was mediocre and the service even less than mediocre - we left before the children ordered the desert that came with their meals as we had waited for over 30 mins after finishing our main course and had to call the serving staff several times to clear away and request the bill. There was another eaterie there though I can't comment on what it was like.

Lovely scenery - take plenty of water if climbing the mont.
