Aveyron in Midi-Pyrénées
The Aveyron, authentic and eternal, offers a traditional welcome, beautiful scenery, dramatic landscapes, picturesque villages. A land of stone, a land of water; gorges, valleys, lakes, rivers : the Aveyron would seem to have been created for out-door pursuits and relaxation.
The Aveyron is rich in historical heritage with fortified Templar and Hospitallier villages and the Gallo-Roman centre at Graufesenque just outside Millau.
From the never-ending perspectives of Aubrac to the precipitous Tarn gorges, everything is to be found here, whether you are searching for a chance to unwind or a physical challenge, taking care of body and soul.
This is a land of character offering a warm welcome, perhaps in a gite in one of the medieval villages perched on the hillside, or a campsite by thewater's edge or one of the traditional auberges, guardians of the local culinary heritage.
Some of the local produce are the noticeably fruity, red Marcillac wine or the superb Roquefort cheese, which has been produced here since 1925.
