It’s France’s least populated département; sunny, close to the Mediterranean and firmly committed to sustainable tourism. But that’s not all. In 2011 Lozère was awarded UNESCO World Heritage status in the Agro-Pastoral Cultural Landscapes category, and it is also full of history, fascinating legends and some very different things to do.

Dargilan cave

Being a visitor of Dargilan you're captured by the impressive dimensions and the variety of its accentuated natural colored formations. The original entrance, discovered in 1880 by a shepherd who hunted a fox, does not annouce the importance of the rooms which await the visitor. This underground maze, revealed in 1888 by Edouard Alfred Martel and arranged the first time in 1890, made of Dargilan the first cave open to the public.

The Gorges du Tarn

The Tarn has carved Europe’s longest gorges into the Grands Causses de Lozère.

This enormous crevasse reaches 500 metres deep in some places and has been home for thousands of years to animals and plants that have become rare or even unique in today’s world.

Cataloguing the species would be a tedious task, as the list is long, but for many, these species in the Gorges du Tarn represent an exceptionally well-preserved biotope. The slow but unstoppable rural migration affecting the department of Lozère has had disastrous consequences on many levels, but it also represents an unexpected chance for delicate birds, such as kingfishers, short-toed eagles, and golden eagles.

Similarly, otters, beavers, and sheep continue to find spaces large enough for them to live in total freedom in this canyon forgotten by noise and industrialisation (at 20 km from the hotel).
