The Midi-Pyrenees / Aveyron region
In south central France, half way between the mountains of the Massif Central and the shores of the Mediterranean, is the French département of the Aveyron. Little known outside France, this spectacular region is an undiscovered gem for walkers, ramblers and lovers of the great outdoors. And this richly varied landscape is criss-crossed by thousands of way marked walks.
The Najac area
5km from Les Trois Puits is the beautifully preserved, fairytale like fortified bastide of Najac. The old town occupies a long and narrow rocky ridge, overlooking a bend in the river Aveyron dominated by an inpregnable castle. The main square was laid out in the middle ages to accommodate large markets and fayres, and lined with two rows of houses. In the oldest part of the town is the 12th to 14th century church Saint Jean, the earliest example of Southern Gothic in the Rouergue. Anyone that visits the area must go to Najac for the incredible views and spectacular walks. Najac is a place you will never forget.
The walking trails are endless, from cool flat riverside walks to challenging steep hill and mountain trails. The Aveyron is a favoured destination for walkers with 700km of footpaths, forming part of the National Grande Randonnee network. A range of local walking maps are available at the house.
