The Aubrac

The Aubrac, a high plateau in the most western part of the Lozère, is a vast expanse of green and grey earth with huge boulders scattered about the land. This region is well-known for its fine local food, its top quality beef, its cheese and the traditional Aligot a dish of mashed potatoes and local cheese. In May, it’s an opportunity to celebrate the start of the transhumance season in colourful style. The traditional little houses with slated roofs, called Burons, are scattered throughout the countryside, here and there you will fi nd glittering lakes and streamlets.

From Nasbinals to Sain-Germain-du-Teil, you will see little villages and hamlets with sturdy houses built with volcanic rocks. It is a region where the way of life has still retained its authenticity. The Medieval road leading to Santiago de Compostela which has today become a registered hiking trail, provides ideal breakaways across the region. The flora alone is a sight not to be missed. Almost two thousand species make Aubrac, so they say, a natural reserve for European flora.
