The Gorges de Raspes du Tarn

To the south of the Massif Central are the Cevennes. This is where the river Tarn rises. Between the cities of Millau and Albi the river Tarn has formed a beautiful valley with a varied landscape. The Valley of the Tarn lies in the department of Aveyron and in the « Parc Naturel Regional des Grands Causses ». It's between St. Rome du Tarn and Brousse le Chateau thal you'll find La Cazette. This part of the Tarn Valley is called the Gorges des Raspes du Tarn. It is sparssely inhabited and not a touristic region, therefore it is an oasis for people who wish to enjoy quietness and simplicity.

Enjoy the French way of living
Not far from our camp site at La Cazette is the town of St. Affrique (28 km). Once a week there is a local market with many “produits du terroir”, quality products made by local people. During the summer every Saturday morning there is a large “vide-grenier”, a fleamarket. After wandering around the market it's nice to sit down outside a café and watch French life go by.
