Tence - Tourism, holidays & weekends guide in the Haute-Loire

Tence, green resort of the uplands, has retained its old world charm, simplicity, authenticity, value and traditions of its usability. Sport coexists with a good life, a country where nature holds out his arms and discovers with each new trip.

Several rivers cross Tence. The pilgrims who follow the path of Saint Jacques de Compostela and St. Regis will make a stopover in the village.
