Great Days Out

The Larzac

Robin Hicks, Mar 24

There is a danger this days out will look patronising - all we can say is sorry - it is not meant to be.

However it has to be said that to many of us the Couvertoirade is - well the most famous and the most visited but there is so much more and so much variety apart from Velorail in St Eulalie de Cernon - though this is a WoW wow for sure. 

3 Places to visit taking exit 47 from the A 75:

La Cavalerie


Chaos de Montpellier-le-Vieux

Nant is not a stunning town to be sure when compared with La Cavalerie - but it is a splendid settlement in this productive valley. The work to create this verdant valley was started by monks in the 9th century and with the canalisation of the rivers this is an astonishingly different place to visit in the Larzac

It is to be sure a lovely village with a fortified church but it is the lush valley which dominates the town.

Complete your visit by seeing what nature can do in the way of an extraordinary landscape - claimed to be the largest site in Europe.
The Black Limestone plateau around the oddly named Montpellier-le-Vieux, can be counted among the cities of the most remarkable rocks of the world"

The park - which has been listed by UNESCO is dolomitic limestone and covers 120 hectares.
Many different activities and of course rock climbing or the train for softies!
