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

A land of granite and round-topped mountains on the border of Cantal, Haute-Loire and Lozère, in the old province of Gévaudan, Margeride is a secret and mysterious land. It offers lovers of authenticity a series of restful landscapes, where meadows alternate with moors, forests and rivers.

Margeride is also an ideal destination for outdoor activities, such as hiking, horse-riding and mountain biking on its many paths and trails, fishing in the Truyère and Rimeize, sailing and canoe-kayak on Naussac Lake, no-kill pike fishing on Charpal Lake...

At the heart of Margeride, in Sainte-Eulalie, Lozère, you can take a carriage ride, or a sled ride in the winter, to see the animals at the European bison reserve – they look like something from Prehistoric times, and roam in semi-freedom in a park covering over 200 hectares. A museum area about the origins and way of life of the European bison, as well as a recreated prehistoric cave, round off your visit. For other places to visit, don't miss the Margeride Ecomuseum in Cantal, with the Clémence Fontille School in Signalauze, the Pierre Allègre Farm in Loubaresse and St. Martin's Garden in Ruynes-en-Margeride, or the fantastical Beast of Gévaudan Museum in Saugues, in Haute-Loire. With a series of amazing reconstructions, it tells the incredible story of the terrifying beast that roamed Gévaudan in the 18th century - a story shrouded in mystery that is still a talking point today!
