A story that continues to be written
The story begins in 1640 with the first part of the construction of the farm (first kitchen, first bedroom, first «agricultural building»). Two enlargements were added in the 18th and 19th century, thus drawing the farmhouse as we know it today. In 1946, Irma Julié, Mary’s grandmother, died. The Farm was no longer inhabited.
In 1973, Marie and Armand PRATLONG chose to make the greatest number to discover the caussenard heritage through the old farm of the Marie family. La Ferme Caussenarde d’Autrefois was born. Their children and grandchildren continue to make live this patrimony and these traditions today universally recognized by the inscription of the Causses and the Cévennes to the World Heritage of the UNESCO.
Return by the sublime point!
Located at 870 m of altitude, the classified site of the «Point Sublime» is one of the places in the gorges of the Tarn where the view is to cut the soufle. Located on the Causse de Sauveterre, the Point-Sublime is a viewpoint that offers visitors the spectacle of these wonderful ochre cliffs diving into the emerald waters of the Tarn.
At the foot, more than four hundred meters below, the Tarn makes a right-angle turn and this ‘whim’ allows the visitor to take the gorges in a row, and towards the east, and towards the south.
Opposite, the steep cornices of Causse Méjean give the final touch to the character of the place and complete this magnificent painting worthy of the greatest artists.
The Rock of Hourtous (little more)
Rock of hourtous lozère tourismeA coffee, a tea: the ideal place for a small snack in the background of the day with a breathtaking view.
Balcony of the causse Méjean, the panorama of the Roc des Hourtous overhangs by 500 m the narrowest part of the Gorges du Tarn: the straits. It is also the evening come «a dormitory for vultures». In spring orchids abound, without being botanist we can still admire them!
