Domaine de la Croze

Never posted. Bought 2007 while visiting the area.

Gorges du Tarn.
Domaine de la Croze.

Domaine de la Croze (link in French) is small hamlet built in stone, with roofs of flat limestone tiles called lauzes. It is on the opposite side of the river from the road and can be accessed only by boat. The 14 or so houses are typical of the local architecture.

The Gorges du Tarn is a wonderful sight, the route followed by the Tarn river through the Grands Causses. The area is well worth a visit, but preferably not July or August when it is full of tourists. I have been a number of times and never tire of it.
