The Aveyron region is a real must for all francophiles. It is a traditional, rural delight with endless rolling vistas and changing scenery from the dramatic foothills, to the endless plateau, to the spectacular Gorge and rivers. This is truly a snapshot of the real France, a France where time almost appears to standstill.
The region is steeped in history from the prehistoric tribes living in the caves of the limestone plateau to the 100 years war and the settlement of the Knights Templar in the region. The region also boasts more Les Plus Beaux Villages de France than any other, so culture is never very far away.
The region is proud of traditional regional products of impeccable quality which feature in its unique cuisine. Sample traditional Aveyron dishes including aligot, le Laguiole, la fouace, Aubrac beef, foie gras, tripous, confits, stuffed cabbage, Estofinado, thrush pâté with goose liver, lamb, feuilleté au roquefort, ewes' curds and the inevitable Roquefort accompanied by wines from Marcillac, Estaing or d'Entraygues.
In Aveyron, a meal is not a meal without a traditional patisserie: Fouace cake flavoured with orange-flower water, almond croquants, échaudés à l'anis, Gateau a la broche (a cone-shaped cake cooked for several hours on a stick by the fire). Followed by a liqueur or eau-de-vie brandy (walnut, quince or plum) to conclude the meal.
