This semi-troglodyte village offers an unfamiliar decor to its visitors and a unique point of view of the Tarn Valley spanned by the Millau Viaduct. Leaning against the cliff and overlooking the Causse Rouge, the village of Peyre has been awarded the “one of the most beautiful villages in France” label.
Head to the top of the picturesque village of Peyre and observe the breathtaking views. The spot also gives you one of the most beautiful views of the Millau Viaduct, situated just a few kilometers upstream.
Hiking amateurs will enjoy the route offered by the path of caselles: it leads you on a discovery of the impressive concentration of these typical shepherd’s caussenard shelters made from dry stone, known as “caselles”. Along the way, you’ll also encounter truffle oaks and enjoy an impressive view of the valley and famous viaduct.
The cave village of Peyre is located about 10 km from Millau and 40 km from the campsite Les Genêts (50 min by car). Take the D577 to Salles-Curan, then the D993 to Saint-Rome-de-Tarn. This charming town is very popular for its medieval town centre, its turret-shaped dwelling and its richly decorated houses. Montjaux also has a castle and a beautiful church (Saint-Quirinus church) which are well worth a visit. The road linking Saint-Rome-de-Tarn and Peyre (Comprégnac) follows the course of the Tarn. You can stop on the way to admire the Tarn valley, take a walk and take beautiful photographs to immortalize your stay at the campsite club les Genêts in Aveyron.
