THE ENVIRONMENT



Your location is located in the Aveyron (to give you an idea: the department of the Aveyron is situated 600 km perpendicular to Paris). But you are also just a stone's throw from the department of the Tarn and not far from the departments the Lot et the Tarn et Garonne. So you can enjoy all the beauty of these four departments.

The department of the Aveyron is known as the land of the 100 valleys. Along the way you enjoy the many beautiful views, the small but also large rivers and picturesque villages. From your accommodation you can make great day trips to many famous French tourist towns:
