Discover the village of Les Vignes in the heart of the Tarn river Canyon
Les Vignes is a small village on the banks of the Tarn river, on the slopes of the limestone Causse de Sauveterre plateau, at around 400 m above sea level. It faces the Causse Méjean plateau. It takes its name from the 18th century vine cultures. Located in the heart of the Tarn river Canyon, it is an ideal place to spend a pleasant holiday on the edge of the river. Not far from the town of Millau, the village is easily accessible by road.
Starting point for beautiful hikes, you can also try out canoeing on different distances to explore the canyon. Accommodation and shops will meet your requests. The Pas de Soucy belvedere is located at the end of the village, which overlooks the natural dam created by the cliff’s rockslide.
A few kilometers from the village, the Point Sublime panorama on the Causse de Sauveterre highland will leave you speechless, likewise those of the Roc des Hourtous and the Roc du Serre on the Causse Méjean plateau which keep great surprises in store for you. Eventually, you can also challenge yourself on an orientation trail in search of the Tarn river Canyon’s treasure on the village's lake. Your days will be busy!
The Saint-Préjet hamlet
De l’autre côté des Vignes, du pont sur la rive gauche, vous apercevrez le hameau de Saint Préjet avec son église au toit de lauze. Près du village, vous pourrez admirer les ruines des châteaux de Dolan et de Blanquefort sur les contreforts des deux Causses qui l'encerclent.
On the other side of Les Vignes, from the bridge on the left bank, you will see the hamlet of Saint Préjet with its slate-roofed church. Near the village, admire the ruins of the castles of Dolan and Blanquefort on the foothills of the two Causses highlands surrounding it.
