The Timeless Tarn

The Tarn's rolling hills & sleepy villages
This Holiday in a nutshell
  • self-guided hotel-to-hotel cycling, luggage transported
  • start and finish in delightful Albi
  • cycle along riverside lanes
  • stay in authentic, welcoming country inns

With its sleepy villages, meandering river and rolling hills, the Mediterranean landscapes of the Tarn are ideal for exploration on two wheels. Setting out from Toulouse-Lautrec's Albi, you head east into increasingly rugged scenery, leaving the vineyards and wooded slopes to discover warm hills of cork oaks and cypress trees.

You cycle through vineyards and wooded slopes, passing cork oaks and cypress trees, and stay in welcoming country inns offering the full flavours of the south-west.
You explore both banks of the river on quiet lanes, with many riverside stretches, and plenty of time to explore. Here, you stay in welcoming country inns offering the full flavours of the South-West: duck, cassoulet and fresh trout and perch from the rivers. The region’s wines are gaining a deserved reputation too – the flinty Gaillac whites are especially refreshing after cycling on the quiet lanes.
