  • The gorges of the Tarn are beautiful in September, not crowded at all! We can quietly stop to admire and take pictures. The roads are very good, a bit narrow but it goes! Don't forget to get on the Causse Méjean, it's a fantastic show with amazing colors, looks in Mongolia! If you have the chance to see wild horses, you will not be disappointed.

  • Located in the heart of the Park natural Regional of Great Causses, close of the Cevennes, the Gorges of the Tarn offer to the visitor the splendour of their landscapes of rocks and water... The richness of the fauna and flora will surprise you in any season. Stop you in its villages and typical hamlets, its castles, its attractions for your holiday photo. Especially in Sainte Enimie, ranked among the most beautiful villages of France, with its old streets paved in pebbles of the Tarn, its old houses restored, which allowed the village to its medieval appearance. But also to the village of Saint-Chély, lovely old picturesque village stuck between the river and the limestone cliffs, on a large bend in the river. A really great site, which is one of the highlights of a visit to the Gorge. Its Romanesque church, its stone houses of the country, to see a layout with stairs allows you to go down at the edge of the Tarn to admire the waterfall. Also share a rare moment in an exceptional setting in the village of Malene, where boatmen offer, a ride on the Tarn of 8 kilometres over a period of about an hour to the village vineyards (return to Malene in mini) bus. On foot, by bicycle, by canoe, bike, drive... no matter, but discover the gorges of the Tarn.
