The Aubrac

The Aubrac

The Aubrac : a mixture of pastures and summer grazing lands, an undulating, seemingly endless land, never monotonous, wearing proudly the scares of intense geological activity; a vast, basaltic plateau of semi-arid, medium-sized mountains, with unique and bewitching landscapes, where water lies stagnate in small lakes and peat-bogs, and where streams meander without destination. The prairies of this sharply varied landscape, delimited by low stone walls, welcome every year from May to October, tens of thousands of cows with a light brown coat and coal-black eyes. Here and there, standing against a hillock, the burons (the cow keepers’ stone shelters) stand as proof that the dairy and cheese-making industries are still thriving. The Roman churches standing tall in the villages remind us of the richness of the region’s history. On its borders, the Aubrac becomes a pleasant countryside with forests, farming, and small villages. Land of traditions, the Aubrac will charm you, give a welcome change of surroundings, peace, and a clean breath of fresh air.
