PARC NATUREL REGIONAL
DES GRANDS CAUSSES and PARC NATIONAL DES CEVENNES, 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.
