The Occitanie region

On the western edge of the Cevennes National Park at the junction of the Dourbie and Trevezel rivers stands Cantobre built on the site of a 12th century Castle. The south-facing village is situated some 580 meters above sea level, which gives it clear hot sunny days with cooler pleasant evenings.

The castle was destroyed during the religious wars of the 17th century and the present village has evolved over the centuries as a home for the peasants who worked the terraced hillsides and in the local small mines. The village suffered in the middle of the last century from de-population brought about by the end of mining and the general movement from countryside to town.

In the second half of the last century water, telephones and reliable electricity were brought to the village, and over the past 30 years the village has again blossomed with the 25 houses of the village being steadily rebuilt, renovated and modernized. The whole village still retains its ancient aspect, which is tightly controlled by the ’Batiments de France’.

The village skyline is dominated by its 12th Century village church, which, standing at the apex of the village, overlooks the village square with its restaurant and bar. The village remains a working community with the village gardens spilling down the hillside below the village towards the Dourbie River.

The village has no shops, however, several visiting tradesmen who supply its daily needs serve the village. The local small town, Nant, is only a 10-minute drive away and is amply served with shops, bars and restaurants. The nearest large town, Millau, is 25 Km away through the Gorges of the Dourbie and has all the facilities you would expect from a town dedicated to the tourist. Millau has a large weekly market on Fridays, a flea market on Sundays and in the summer a food market each Monday evening when the local population gather in the town centre to eat the local specialties. There are a large number of restaurants and bars in Millau and it has a number of supermarkets.

The location of Cantobre is ideal for the tourist who wants a special holiday amid the spectacular scenic countryside of southern Aveyron and Languedoc. The opportunities for sightseeing are endless with new vistas and delights around every bend in the road. Go just 20km south and you drop down from the heights of the Central Massif into the world’s largest wine growing region of Languedoc/Roussillion with over 950 wine producers giving numerous opportunities for sampling their wares. Go 20km north and you meet the river Tarn with its famous 300meter deep gorges and its ancient spectacular towns and villages.

Southern Aveyron is famous for the quality of its local produce. Near by Cantobre is Roquefort famous for its cheese and a visit to its caves, in which the cheese is matured, is a must.

Cantobre is located in an area of high limestone plateaus and deep river valleys and there are numerous caves, a number of which are open to the public. In the area rivers disappear underground only to reappear elsewhere.

Historic sites abound. In the middle ages the area was a major crossroads for armies on the way to the Crusades and near Cantobre lie a number of preserved fortified villages built by the Knights Templar and Hospitallar. The villages, which are still living communities, stage jousting and feasting displays in the summer to give visitors a taste of old Aveyron and life in the Middle Ages.

All our local villages, like all villages in France, have their local fetes where visitors can mingle and join in the festivities with the locals.

The location of Cantobre in southern Aveyron makes it possible for the holiday maker to visit the famous cities of Avignon, with its papal palaces, Nimes, with its Roman ruins, and Albi, the red city, with its famous cathedral, all of which are within a couple of hours drive of your holiday home.

Nant

At your holiday home in Cantobre you will be able to do as little or as much as you want.
Cantobre offers the flexibility of holiday opportunity virtually unrivalled elsewhere.
Whether your wish is for quiet reflection or physical activity all are catered for.

Cantobre is located in an area of outstanding beauty and the local area abounds with deer, beavers, wild boar and numerous species of birds including birds of prey. At nearby Gorges of the river Jonte you can visit and see the only free flying breeding colony of vultures in France. From the village you can take a gentle stroll down to the Dourbie River where you can swim, picnic or barbecue on its banks. Take the one hour walk or your car and visit ancient Nant and watch the world go by, swim in Nants heated outdoor swimming pool or play tennis on its public courts.

The local area is a paradise for walkers. There are numerous marked walks of various lengths and difficulty. Take a walk along the river to Nant or climb the ancient paths to the high mountain plateaus of the Causses (Limestone Moors). Why not combine your walk with a fossil hunt amongst the limestone rocks.

You can fish in the local Class 1 rivers (Dourbie, Tarn & Jonte) for the local trout, or you can drive for an hour to the coast for sea fishing while your family goes swimming or shopping at the local market.

Cycling is a popular pastime in the area with the road from Cantobre to Millau alongside the Dourbie being a pleasant ride. You can, for a different experience, travel a few kilometres to Cornus where you can ride the specially adapted bikes along the rails of an old railway.

If water sports are your pleasure you are amply catered for. There is windsurfing and sailing on the local lakes; canoeing, rafting or kayaking on the local rivers; swimming in the local rivers, the swimming pool in Nant or in the Olympic size pool in Millau.

Millau is a major centre for paragliding, and as well as experienced fliers, first timers can try it in tandem with an experienced instructor. The local hills offer the opportunity, under expert supervision, to experience rock climbing, abseiling, caving and mountain biking. For the less physical challenged there are a number of ’ Fôret de Acrobats’ (walking in tree tops) located alongside the Tarn near Millau.

Finally you must visit the newly opened ‘ Viaduct of Millau’ on the A75. Designed by the British Architect Sir Norman Foster it is the highest bridge in the world and is higher than the Eiffel Tower.

These are a few of the possible activities in the area around Cantobre that will make your holiday one to remember...

“BON RAPPORT QUALITE PRIX”

Reviewed 20 May 2015

1 Gîte principal avec 2 chambres et 2 chambres à part (accès par l'extérieur) donc compliqué pour 2 familles de 2 adultes + 2 enfants selon l'âge des enfants. Le gîte est au calme, éloigné de tout (peut être un inconvénient pour certains car aucun commerce à moins de 15 kms). Attention, cet endroit n'est pas adapté aux personnes âgées ou aux enfants en bas âge: il y a des escaliers partout. Dans le gîte, l'essentiel y est, pas plus pas moins, en tout cas pour un weekend prolongé. Le lave vaisselle fuit: ne pas l'utiliser, il nettoie très mal et au final il faut laver à la main! Merci de fournir du nettoyant vaisselle plutôt que des pastilles lave vaisselle. C'est propre, les lits sont faits et les serviettes de bain sont fournies. Nous avons pris un forfait ménage à la fin de notre séjour. Idéal en mi saison et été. Doit être trop difficile à réchauffer (les chambres à part car le gîte principal possède un poêle à bois) en automne et hiver. TRÈS BON RAPPORT QUALITÉ PRIX SI ON RAMÈNE A LA PERSONNE PAR NUITÉE

The problem with the dishwasher has been resolved. The jets were blocked. If the vacancier had told us at the time the problem would have been resolved in two minutes.
