Pays de Roquefort


Parc Naturel Régional des GRANDS CAUSSES 
home base of La Ligne Verte.

If you want the charms of France and avoid touristy bustle this region will assure you'll get it; it has been designated a national parc and its riches are protected.
Here you'll find breathing space for taking your time far away from hustle and bustle of modern day living while savouring the French cuisine and way of life. Aveyron and Tarn give you a traditional welcome, amid  beautiful scenery, dramatic landscapes and picturesque villages. A land of stone, a land of water: gorges, valleys, lakes, rivers all bathed in sunlight under a radiant blue sky: the land would seem to have been created for out-door pursuits and relaxation.
