Places of interest

Classed as one of the most beautiful villages of France, Brousse-le-Château lies downstream and is within walking distance (5km).

You can dine on the terrace of the local restaurant while enjoying the magnificent view of the château. The surrounding countryside is dotted with other châteaux, such as at Montaigut, St Izaire and Coupiac.

Farther south lie the Templar fortress towns of Sainte Eulalie-de-Cernon, St Jean d’Alcas and La Couvertoirade.

Lying 60km to the west, Albi is well known as a city of the Cathars and Albigeois (Albigensians) and is famous for its cathedral and Toulouse-Lautrec Museum.

Millau viaduct (60km to the east) is literally one of the “high points” of modern architecture.

Micropolis, near Millau, is a recently built visitor attraction dedicated to the world of insects.

Travelling on from Millau brings you to the Gorges du Tarn where you’ll find caves, Montpellier-le-Vieux, bizarre rock formations, and the Causses (lime plateaux) du Larzac.
