  • English
    • South of Rodez, Pont-de-Salars is in the Lévézou, a high plateau with vast lakes where you can practice water sports and nature. It is a great place for a family holiday, as there are charming beaches along the lakes where swimming is possible, hikes of different levels of difficulty, interesting villages to discover and tourist sites for the whole family. .

      In Pont-de-Salars is an agricultural town, which has taken advantage of its geographical position and its natural resources for its economic and tourist development. Rural tourism today occupies a great importance in the emancipation of this region, especially in summer.
      In terms of heritage, you will discover the church of Poujols, the pretty Pont de Saint-Georges, the hamlet and the castle (in ruins, but it is a charming site for a walk) of Camboulas with the Viaur stream at its feet.

      It is especially the natural heritage that is to be discovered, lovers of flora and fauna will enjoy walking on the riparian forest of Viaur, the wetland of Vernet, the Peat bog of Bial, and the bocage of La Trappe. It is worth noting the diversity of natural spaces and ecosystems around Pont-de-Salars. This diversity is explained by the different landscape entities that make up the Lévézou: the plateau, the numerous lakes and the steep-sided valleys.
      The lakes are mostly artificial, they result from water retention from hydroelectric dams and are now of tourist and entertainment interest.

      Come and enjoy the lake of Pont-de-Salars or that of Bage, not far away, which is reserved for fishing.
