A detour towards the countryside…

The Tarn Valley! : After Albi’s urbain charm, discover the beautiful countryside views by following the Tarn river: hiking trails, horse riding, carriage rides, donkey riding, cycling routes, canoeing, paddle-boarding, fishing, swimming, tasting local produce…
The Tarn, a majestic river, flows through several departments, from Lozère to the Tarn-et-Garonne. From Albi to Millau, you will discover the Gorges du Tarn, the Rapses and the Tarn Valley… incredible countryside views.

Hiking on one of the most beautiful trails: « Le sentier des Cabannes » in Ambialet. Alternatively, you can rent electric bikes if you fancy being lazy!

The peninsula of Ambialet

Entwined in a 3km bend in the Tarn, the Ambialet peninsula is full of surprises and charm. There is a magnificent view if you just take time to walk up to the old monastery. This picturesque village has the distinction of being built on the most pronounced isthmus in Europe. A good place to visit all year!
