Discover the city of stones in Montpellier-le-Vieux
The chaos of Montpellier-le-Vieux is a natural site on the Causse Noir which is located on the edge of the Dourbie Gorges and near the Millau Viaduct.
Renamed the stone city, this place will be the playground for children of all ages thanks to the multiple activities offered.
A very good idea for a walk in the afternoon and in good weather!
The Caves of Dargilan, Aven Armand, Abyss of Bramabiau
South Aveyron has good number of caves or abysses near the campsite aveyronnais. Go and discover them!
We recommend the following visits:
- Dargilan : nicknamed the pink cave, it’s the largest cave in the Causses and Cévennes
- Aven Armand : underground cavity created by nature and located on the Causse Méjean, in Lozère
- Abîme de Bramabiau : another natural cavity which shelters an underground river, between Millau and Mount Aigoual
Some gorgeous sites, to be preferred in rainy weather or to find a fresh spot!
