VEYREAU

27 km from Millau
Altitude: 885m
Population: 106

Veyreau is the perfect example of a village on the causse, with its stone-roofed houses supported by magnificent limestone vaulting. The attractive weather-worn sheepfolds recall the past when life on the plateau was harsh, and people survived on little. Wells which once captured rainfall can still be seen on some of the farms, as can the troughs known as lavognes where the sheep came to drink. In spring, the plateau is covered with flowers (some of these have medicinal properties and others, like the wild orchid, are quite rare), while in autumn a number of different mushrooms can be found here. The area is perfect for walking, horse-riding or mountain biking all year round.
