I’ve put together a 3 – 4 break in the delightful town of Rodez, where you’ll find gorgeous cobbled streets lined with houses made from pink limestone and plenty of traditional markets. Rodez is the ideal base for exploring Aveyron, but I really recommend hiring a car to get around as it’s quite a rural area and public transport leaves a lot to be desired! Definitely spend a day getting a feel for a city, then spend the rest of your trip cruising around the lush valleys and medieval villages. The ibis Centre Rodez is right in the heart of the city just a stone’s throw away from the cathedral.
Conques is a must. Widely considered by the French as one of the most beautiful villages in the country, Conques has long been a port of call for pilgrims walking along the Camino de Santiago and walking through its winding streets will transport you to another time and place. Also well worth the effort are Estaing, Espalion and Belcastel, all of which enjoy idyllic locations next to the river.
