Right next to the river, in the Aveyron gorge, the medieval city is a stunning place where every building has a story. The Sunday market here is famous beyond the region. The shaded winding streets, the squares, all pulsing with the market energy every Sunday. A real treat not to be missed.
Further down the Aveyron gorge, Bruniquel also labelled LABEL is a tiny village frozen in time. The whole place is hanging on the gorge’s cliff offering a truly stunning scenery. But the beauty also lies in the details, stones doors, towers… and the feeling that Bruniquel hasn’t change for centuries.

Go for a walk in the steep tiny streets. Rose garden, soft shades, wooden ornate façade. The strategic location watching the Lot river below transformed this medieval monasteries into a full renaissance city. The fortified church is a good reminder of its history.
Dive even further in history exploring the depth of the earth. Not only you will see complex natural geological formation but most importantly you will have the almost unique and truly amazing experience. Real prehistorical cave paintings from more than 20 000 years. Mamouth, horse, bison, gliph, hand, human figure, foot steeps frozen in time… An art gallery in a natural palace.
The cave is very closely monitored, and to preserve such amazing work the amount of visitors as well as the time spent in the cave is limited, we would really advise you to book in advance during the high season.
And while you are there, you are only 10 minutes away from Noct’en Bulles, our second address. If you which to come to both places, drop us an email and we will take good care of you ans offer you a discount on your stay.
