South of the Tarn river, water acting on the limestone plateaux created caves, subterranean rivers, gushing springs. The most famous of the caves is now still used for the ripening of sheep cheese: Roquefort, king of cheeses, cheese of kings.St.Jean d'Alcas

Pays de Roquefort also includes the Causse du Larzac with its restored Medieval Templars garrisons from where crusades set out in 10th-13th centuries, and the Redlands of Camarès with its Cistercienzer Abbaye de Sylvanès. St.Affrique, a small Southern town, is the starting place of some of our many walks in this walking area. The landscape exudes peace and unspoiled natural beauty.

Travellers coming by airplane can best fly in to Rodez (Ryanair from London Stansted), Montpellier or Marseille. Toulouse is an option too.
