I opened 20 years ago a "gite d'étape" in my little farm in full Aveyron countryside. I have 4 donkeys that need a little care, an environment to keep nice and a small garden, hiking paths clearing brush, There is always a few tweaks to make too .... I am alone this year and I have a little trouble at juggling things! I would be happy to host one or a person in my biotop, find that most "magic" ... and to share good times
j'ai ouvert depuis 20 ans un "gite d'étape" dans ma petite ferme en pleine campagne aveyronnaise. J 'ai 4 ânes dont il faut un peu s'occuper, un environnement à tenir joli et un petit jardin, des chemins de randonnée à débroussailler, Il y a toujours un peu de bricolage à réaliser aussi....Je suis seule cette année et j'ai un peu de mal à tout mener de front ! Je serais heureuse d'accueillir un ou une personne dans mon biotop que la plupart trouve "magique" ... et de partager de bons moments

Aveyron contains a part of the Cévennes National Park. Well-known tourist attractions are the castle of Najac, a medieval ruin perched high on a hill, and the many beautiful old castles and monasteries such as Conques Abbey, Sylvanès Abbey, Bonneval Abbey and Loc-Dieu Abbey, located near Martiel in a region with many dolmens. The small city of Millau is the site of the world's tallest bridge, the Millau viaduct, opened by President Chirac in December 2004.
Activities include horseriding, fishing, swimming in the Lacs du Lévézou and hiking/camping. The inhabitants are also very good craftsmen, and Aveyron is full of various craft objects, handmade, that can be found locally. Examples include the couteau de Laguiole, the world famous Roquefort cheese, from the village of the same name and other local produce. Markets take place every Saturday on market places around the region.
