The Ambialet peninsula nestles in the bend of a 3-kilometre meander in the Tarn Valley, with a priory towering over it. The charm and natural beauty of this spot are a lovely surprise.

During your visit, you will discover several churches: the fortress-like Romanesque church of the Priory of Our Lady of the Oder, built in the 11th century; the Church of Our Lady of La Capelle, a former castle chapel built in the 15th century; and the 11th-century Church of St. Giles, which hosts art exhibitions during the summer. As well as this rich built heritage there are some remarkable views over the Tarn Valley. These superb viewpoints are not to be missed, and you can appreciate them from the priory esplanade or, for the more athletic among you, from the hilltop ruins of the castle fort!

Ambialet is a perfect starting point for exploring the wonders of the valley. On foot, by bike, in a canoe or kayak, or even on a stand-up paddleboard, set off to discover the beautiful landscapes for which this part of Tarn is famous.
