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.Pays de Roquefort, walking and cycling tours

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 many walks in this walking area. The landscape exudes peace and unspoiled natural beauty. St. Affrique in Sud Aveyron

In this part of  (Southern France, 'le midi' ) genuine countryside and 'La France profonde' still exist. A district with an extraordinary diversity of landscapes, that you will get to know when hiking and cycling through this far South part of the Massif Central: mountains, limestone plateaus (Causses), lush green valleys, roaring rivers (Sorgues, Dourdou). Lots of small villages here. No fast food here, but the French cuisine, honest food in small family runned hotels where you will get a warm welcome.
