Around Monts Aubrac (Lozere-Aveyron-Cantal)


The Aubrac plateau. Vast high plateau on the western borders of Lozere, Aubrac shows a strong personality. This basalt land, shaped since the end of the Tertiary era by volcanic eruptions, extends as far as the eye can see. Here and there, huge rocky blocks eroded by time, are placed on these waves of green and gray earth, similar to menhirs or dolmens. The lakes sparkle and the streams whisper. The rounded mountains covered with pastures, meadows and moors remind us that Aubrac is perpetuating an old pastoral tradition. It is a land known for its beautiful cows, its tomes and its aligot ... and for the transhumance of May, occasion of very colorful festivals. The old burons still dot the landscape: these small houses with slate roofs evoke the time when shepherds found refuge in these cramped rooms to make and store cheese and shelter from burle, that formidable west wind. From Nasbinals to Saint-Germain-du-Teil, small discreet villages and houses with robust walls of volcanic stones punctuate the landscape. Here, nature is omnipresent. Area of ​​the walker, the skier, the fisherman, Aubrac gives rise to all the walks. The medieval path leading to Saint-Jacques-de-Compostelle, now a long-distance hiking trail, offers ideal getaways into the region. The flora, on its own, offers an unmissable spectacle. Nearly two thousand species make Aubrac, it is said, a natural conservatory of European flora. A flora that explodes in spring, lining the mountains just out of hibernation with multicolored spots. Aubrac looks like an end of the world where men have managed to preserve warmth and conviviality, while maintaining their ancestral know-how. Markets and fairs are a showcase for meeting farmers and producers and sharing the real flavors of simple things.
