Margeride - Tourism, holidays & weekends guide in Auvergne-Rhône-Alps

A land of granite with rolling landscapes, on the border of Cantal, Haute-Loire and Lozère in the former province of Gévaudan, Margeride is a secluded and mysterious place. It offers lovers of authentic nature a series of restful landscapes, alternating between meadows, moors, forests and rivers.

As well as being a great place to recharge your batteries, Margeride is also an ideal destination to enjoy outdoor activities, like hiking, horse-riding and mountain biking along its many paths and trails, fishing on the Truyère and Rimeize, sailing and canoe-kayak on Lake Naussac, no-kill pike fishing on Lake Charpal and more…

At the heart of Margeride, at Sainte-Eulalie in Lozère, the European bison reserve invites you to take a carriage ride, or a sled ride in the winter, and see its prehistoric-looking animals, in semi-captivity in a park of over 200 hectares. A museum area about the European bison's origins and way of life, as well as a reconstruction of a prehistoric cave, complete the experience.

When it comes to visitor attractions, don't miss the Margeride Ecomuseum in Cantal, with the Clémence Fontille School in Signalauze, Pierre Allègre's farm in Loubaresse and St. Martin's Garden in Ruynes-en-Margeride. There is also the fantastic Beast of Gévaudan Museum in Saugues, Haute-Loire, which has gripping reconstructions that tell the incredible story of the terrifying beast that roamed Gévaudan in the 18th century. This mysterious tale is still a frequent topic of conversation today!
