Welcome to La Roumec and our Chambres d’hôtes accommodation in a character-filled old farmhouse complete with a seasonal pool.
The Département of Aveyron lies between the Massif Central and the Mediterranean and, at around 25kms from the historic town of Rodez (Cathedral, museums and famous ‘Musée Soulages’) La Roumec provides an ideal base for exploring the region. Almost equidistant between Conques (19.5 kms) and Belcastel (22 kms) we are within a max of 2 hours drive from: St Cirq Lapopie, Rocamador, l’Aubrac, Roquefort, Gorges du Tarn, Gorges de l’Aveyron, La Vallée du Lot, Les lacs de Lévézou, The Millau Viaduct, Villefranche de Rouergue, Najac, the ‘Trou de Bozouls,’ the Cantal mountains and all the 12 most beautiful villages in France situated in the Aveyron.
Our nearest town is the pretty Marcillac Vallon, centre of the wine growing area where a wonderful market is held every Sunday morning.
Activities apart from sightseeing include hiking, kayak/canoeing, horse riding, golf, cycling, boat and train trips, water sports on the lakes and adventurous activities at specialised centres.
