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.
Close to Millau,
in center of Parc des Grands Causses, worlds highest (343m) viaduct
now connects the Lévézou plateau and the Causse du Larzac, as part
