Unspoilt nature Between Gorges du Tarn and Larzac

As you cross the majestic Millau Viaduct, you enter a land of tradition and authenticity. Few regions in France offer landscapes as spectacular as the south of Aveyron. In this land of vast rocky plateaus and simplistic beauty, the water of the Tarn and Jonte Rivers dug breath-taking gorges, dominated by gigantic cliffs where vultures nest. Here, time stands still over the stone villages nestled in a bend along the Tarn River or perched in the Dourbie Valley and over the medieval cities that the Knights Templair built on the Causse du Larzac.

A region of outdoor sports (hiking, mountain biking, paragliding, climbing) and white water sports (canoeing, rafting, canyoning), Aveyron is also a gourmet terroir where you can enjoy Roquefort, the king of cheeses, Aligot as well as local cold cuts.
