Les 3 Cantons is situated in one of the prettiest regions of France, The ‘gorges d’Aveyron’. ‘Gorges’ literally means throats but is used here for the canyons that have formed around some parts of the Aveyron river. The river with its spectacular cliffs has many great views, breathtaking, secluded spots and a landscape with lots a variety. And here you can still find the real French atmosphere. Although very interesting and becoming more and more known, the Saint Antonin-area is still fairly quiet and (luckily!) not run over by mass-tourism. The French inhabitants are very friendly and here you can still find him, that old man with his typical beret and a baguette pinched under the carrier straps of his vintage moped. Within a 10 km. radius:
-St. Antonin Noble Val. A small, medieval town. Beautifully preserved and very authentic.
-The Aveyron ‘Gorges’. Great views, cliffs, walking, hiking. Nature at its best.
-The Bosc grotto, our ‘own’ local grotto and also very pretty.
