Gorges OF Truyère AND Carladez
Lake of Sarrans, Angler’s paradise
Sarrans, Montézic, Goul, Couesque, Maury… reservoirs and great dams appear one after the other along the Truyère. All are rich in predator fish: pike, zander and perch are among the species that will delight anglers.
At the northern tip of the département and partially in the Cantal, lac de Sarrans covers 2500 acres set between its very steep and densely wooded banks in this hilly area best seen from the belvédère de Vezou viewpoint. This is where one finds the Laussac peninsula or presqu’île, an original and romantic site.
During your stay: taste the delicious fouace in Thérondels

Mur de Barrez, County stronghold, ancient fief of the Princes of Monaco, with beautiful narrow streets lined with mediaeval houses guarded by the ancient square tower gateway.
Château de Valon
Overlooking the Truyère valley, you climb up to it via a small winding road. Once you arrive, you are rewarded by the magnificent view over the gorges and the wild vastness.
