The region of Aubrac is offering some of the most astonishing landscapes in our country. This region is rather secluded, really off the beaten paths. It is a small effort to get there, but much rewarded. You will find a unique quaint sporting hotel -owned by a unique flyfishing character. Wonderful rustic gastronomy neighbouring the table of michel Bras, rated 6th best restaurant in the world. Beautiful streams crossed by the pilgrim's way to Compostella. You will come back with incredible memories and very likely also with the folding knife you've always dreamed of...
The Plateau of Aubrac is cut by pristine streams
The old Aubrac breed is a great contributor to the local gastronomy
my last trip there was for the opening of the quail season
the villages are built with volcanic and granite stones
in the village of my favorite hotel
the rugged 4 x 4 of our fishing guide, is waiting to take you
in the hotel, the dining room looks like a small fishing museum
here old reels...
there creels and framed flies
and at the bar, a very "couleur locale" clientèle of anglers and workers
the little towns offer countless cultural curiosities
And unusual delicacies. For instance, there is a sort of worldwide fan club of the dry sausage made by "Monsieur Conquet"
these breads will accompany the famous "saucisson" and an excellent cheese
for a nice riverside break
don't forget your knife. The town of Laguiole gave its name to...
the most famous folding knife in the world. There are dozens of workshops
the "Maison Calmels" was founded in 1829, their knives are only sold here in Laguiole.
There are no distributors in Paris and nowhere else.
probably a holly tree hiding old legends
you will discover amazing little restaurants, lost in the country
like the famous "Rosalie" providing also bread to pilgrims to Santiago de Compostella
arriving here across forests and moors from "Le Puy en Velay".
