Tarn

In Occitania, the Tarn nestles between the Montagne Noire, the Monts de Lacaune, the foothills of the Massif-Central and the Garonne basin.

In the southwest of France, at the crossroads of oceanic, Mediterranean and continental influences, the Tarn is a welcoming area. A ideal land to relax and live intense experiences.

The essentials of the Tarn department

During your stay in the Tarn, discover Albi, the episcopal city and its cathedral, before you let yourself be amazed by the village of Cordes-sur-Ciel. Then set off for Castres, in the footsteps of Jaurès, Goya and Le Nôtre. For an immersion in the medieval past coupled with thrills, the vertiginous footbridge of Mazamet will take you to Hautpoul village. Back in the valley, the Tarn offers unforgettable boat trips. To conclude your journey, explore the Gaillac vineyard, and treat yourself to a tasting in one of the cellars of this department.

Remarkable natural sites

Among the remarkable natural sites, the Tarn and the Black Mountain delight vacationers. The Roc de Montalet offers a sumptuous panorama. To the north-west, the Grésigne forest is magnificent. During your trip, do not miss the Viaur valley and the Oulas Gorge. In the heart of the Haut-Languedoc Regional Natural Park, the mysterious rocks of Sidobre will also leave you with lasting memories.

Outdoor sports

The Tarn is a territory conducive to the practice of outdoor sports. Hiking and mountain biking are practiced all year round. But summer visitors also like to get carried away for adventures in canyoning, caving, climbing, via ferrata and paragliding. Your holidays in the Tarn will thus be rich in adrenaline!

Historic sites

During your visit in the Tarn, go to Albi of course, then to Castres for a boat trip. You will thus go to meet the old residences of weavers, dyers, tanners and parchment workers. In Sorèze, the abbey-school leads visitors in the footsteps of the Benedictine monk Dom Robert. Finally, the hilltop villages, fortified bastides and medieval towns await you in the heart of rolling and green landscapes.
