Saint-Alyre-d'Arlanc is a commune in the Puy-de-D√īme department in Auvergne in central France.



It is situated on the D999 road and almost mid-way between the cities of Clermont-Ferrand and Saint-√Čtienne at the heart of the Parc naturel r√©gional Livradois-Forez.

The village is surrounded by pine forest with wild mushrooms to be found in the woods during autumn, rolling countryside and it is on the pilgrim trail. 9 km to the south is the mediaeval abbey town of La Chaise-Dieu.

The canton comprises the small hamlets of Chouviaux, Pauly, Bressolles, Bressolettes, La Ferreire, Germalange, Aubepierre, Le Montel, Tremoulet and Chelles.


The village has a population of 50 permanent year round residents, which swells to 3-400 during the summer months.

The mayor, elected in 2008, is Daniel Besseyrias. The annual Fete Patronale is held over the weekend of the third Sunday in July.
