Holidays at the crossroads of Margeride, the Monts du Cantal and the Truyère gorges

All around Neuvéglise-sur-Truyère, natural sites, outdoor activities and cultural visits abound. We offer here some ideas for outings to compose your stay in the Pays de Saint-Flour.

The medieval town of Saint-Flour, 15 km from Gîte du Gardeloux, is worth a look. During a guided tour or a free stroll, you will appreciate the remarkable buildings of the historic center (cathedral, former episcopal palace, market hall, mansions) which bear witness to the past of the former religious capital of Haute-Auvergne.

We recommend the nocturnal lighting of the upper town, comfortably seated on the terrace, Place de la Liberté, it's even better! Do not leave without having tasted the local specialities: truffade, pounti, traditional charcuterie, AOP cheeses from Auvergne and the famous Saint-Flour blond lentil.

A few kilometers from Saint-Flour, stop off at Chaudes-Aigues, the only spa resort in Cantal. You will be seduced by its human dimension and its exceptional natural setting. Chaudes-Aigues has 32 hot springs, which have been heating homes and supplying thermal baths since the 14th century. The Par spring, the hottest in Europe, springs naturally at 82°C. Some have fun cooking an egg in it! If you are passionate about renewable energies, stop by Geothermia, the European museum of geothermal energy and hydrotherapy.

Taking its source in Margeride, the Truyère dug wild gorges. The Truyère Gorges and the Garabit Viaduct are linked. The majestic viaduct, 564 meters long and 122 meters high, designed by Gustave Eiffel and Léon Boyer, brought together the two banks of the Truyère. Note that the train is still running on the Viaduct.

After your stopover at the Garabit Viaduct, why not let yourself be tempted by water-related leisure activities? The 3 great lakes of Garabit-Grandval, Lanau and Sarrans with their islands, peninsulas and green valleys will bewitch you. These dam lakes are very popular with fishermen. In fine weather, the nautical bases of Garabit, Mallet and Lanau offer a wide choice of nautical activities.

Multiple arch dam of Grandval, exhibition on the construction of the dam of Lanau, belvedere of Sarrans, discovery area of Couesques, this hydroelectric heritage can be visited and visited.

According to your desire, you can discover the wild beauty of the Gorges de la Truyère on the water, on foot, by bike, by motorbike, and even by car. Tours are available from tourist offices.

The Château d'Alleuze, 9 km from your vacation rental, is perched on a rocky peak surrounded by the Truyère. The site, which overlooks Lake Grandval, is picturesque and wild. To reach the ruins of the feudal castle, you have to go to the Saint-Illide chapel, located below the village of La Barge. A hike, forming a 10 km loop, passing by the castle, offers varied landscapes and paths with superb views of the gorges.

The Brezons valley, between Saint-Martin-sous-Vigouroux and the Griffoul pass, is located about twenty kilometers from the Gardeloux gite. This remarkable natural site is the result of volcanic lava flows. The glacial valley is dominated by a plug of lava which evokes the profile of a lion's head. Will you find it?

From the family walk to the Saut de la Truite waterfall (45 min round trip) to the more athletic route to the Cirque de Grandval, several marked routes allow you to discover the waterfalls of the Brezons valley.

The Monts du Cantal will be part of the essential visits of your holidays. Nature lovers will be delighted to survey the volcano through a hike, horseback ride or mountain bike.

The observation of wild fauna and flora is another point of interest of the volcanic site which belongs to the Regional Natural Park of the volcanoes of Auvergne.

From the summit of Puy Mary - Grand Site de France (1787 m) and Plomb du Cantal, the highest peak in the department (1,855 m) you will be struck by the beauty of the landscapes. In winter, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, downhill skiing or dog sledding can be practiced in the resorts of Lioran and Prat-de-Bouc.

The Aubrac and Margeride plateaus have a very well preserved natural heritage. Forests, pastures and burons share vast spaces. Travelers go there to complete one or more stages of the Camino de Santiago de Compostela. Aubrac is ideal for family getaways, outdoor activities are organized from the resorts of Bonnecombe, Brameloup, Laguiole, Nasbinals and Saint-Urcize.

A trip to the Lozère Margeride, less than 100 km from your vacation rental, will be particularly appreciated by children. Visits to the European Bison Reserve (in Sainte-Eulalie) and the Parc des Loups du Gévaudan (in Saint-Léger-de-Peyre) offer you exceptional encounters with the animals.
