Holiday rentals and lettings in the Gorges du Tarn
The gorges of the Tarn are, without a doubt, one of the natural jewels of the hexagon. From the north of the gorges, at La Malène or Sainte-Enimie, superb holiday rentals overlook the steep cliffs that overlook the river. Leaving the Cévennes for the Grandes Causses, the municipalities of La Roque-Sainte-Marguerite or Saint-Rome-de-Tarn offer comfortable accommodation that will charm their visitors.Holiday rentals with traditional comfort
The gorges of the Tarn are dotted with charming small villages, built exclusively of stone on the edge of the vertiginous cliffs of the region. Balconies and terraces, which often accompany these impressive buildings, allow you to enjoy incredible views over the entire Tarn valley. But these holiday rentals do not forget the pleasures of modern comfort: Internet connection and washing machine will ensure that their guests enjoy a serene stay.
Holidays in the gorges of the Tarn
Location and orientation
It is in this department, more precisely in the Cévennes regional nature park, that most of the Tarn gorges are located. To fully appreciate the scale of the site, you must first rise: the Sublime Point of Saint-Georges-de-Lévéjac or the panorama of the Roc des Hourtous will be the ideal places to magnificently overlook the gorges. Before leaving for a well-deserved swim in the refreshing waters of the Tarn, a detour is required to the charming village of Meyrueis, south of the gorges, to enjoy its gentle lifestyle and especially its Dargilan cave, a true underground cathedral. Finally, it is at La Malène that the eastern part of the gorges is fully revealed. Between nature and heritage, with the Montesquiou manor house in particular, visitors will no longer know where to turn.The gorges of the Tarn, on the Aveyron side
A more confidential part of the Gorges du Tarn, near the regional natural park of the Grands Causses, it does not lack charm. Following the PR41 hiking trail, starting from Liaucous, it is possible to discover the troglodytic past of the region and its inhabitants, who used to nest their homes in the rocks that dominate the Tarn. But this stay in Aveyron also allows you to discover the Jonte gorges, which are smaller than those of the Tarn, but which are also worth a look and are much less frequented. It is here that you can admire fabulous vultures, secular inhabitants of Aveyron.
Travellers and activities
Who says gorges du Tarn, necessarily means going down in a canoe/kayak. However, many other activities are available on site: caving, canyoning and climbing. But hiking enthusiasts will not be disappointed: on the P41 in Aveyron, or on the path leading to the fabulous Cirque des Baumes, they will have the opportunity to work out and enjoy all the pleasures of the region.The gorges of the Tarn for heritage lovers
The Tarn gorges are bordered, from north to south, by superb medieval castles that further highlight the splendour of the region. Heritage lovers will go to Sainte-Enimie, one of the most beautiful villages in France, to admire Castelbouc or Prades Castle. As it moves further west, in the heart of the Cévennes, the city of Florac reveals its narrow streets and its fishing spring. Back in La Malène, in the heart of the gorges, a detour to the Saint-Jean-Baptiste church will give you the opportunity to admire one of the most beautiful religious monuments in the region.
Castel Merlet Castle, now in ruins, is the oldest known castle in France. Its foundations date back to the 6th century and can still be seen in La Malène.
