Le circuit des 10 plus beaux villages de France
Certain passionate people have turned their dream into a reality available to all. Bringing together cycling, local area, heritage and gastronomy, this was the goal of Monsieur Plagnard, Vice-President of the Vélo Club Lot et Truyère (Lot and Truyère Cycling Club). In 2008, he conceived, for his cycling friends from Lorraine, a 7 day, 700km cycle touring itinerary linking up the 10 Plus Beaux Villages de France in the Aveyron.
These are listed villages with famous names: Estaing, Conques, Sainte-Eulalie-d’Olt, Saint-Côme-d’Olt, Peyre, La Couvertoirade, Brousse-le-Château, Najac, Sauveterre-de-Rouergue and Belcastel. During this circuit, stops are a must as each village has its own temperament and ambiance.
