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 (Tarn, Jonte, Dourbie, Lot, Aveyron, 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.
attractive for those who like quiet, simplicity and unspoiled nature. You are cycling in the Parc Régional des Grands Causses in South-Aveyron. Aveyron is also a rich source of (ancient) culture: the district of Templars, medieval cloisters and places of pilgrimage. And... apart from the cyclists and hikers, a renowned district for bird-watching, mountain-biking, a region for those who seek unspoiled nature, hilly stages, valleys and plateaus, called Causses.
