​​​There are dozens of restaurants in the area. They range from the famous "Maison  Bras" at Le Suquet, Laguiole to restaurants used by the locals which are very good value, with locally sourced ingredients and very popular.
There are more than 900 km of long-distance "Grande Randonnee" footpaths and a network of 4000 km of shorter walks in the Aveyron. There are 14 walks in our Canton alone, many accessible directly from the cottage. These paths are also a real paradise for bike rides and for mountain biking. From simple family walks to discover the countryside to more experienced mountain bikers, everyone will find an outdoor activity to suit them. Bicycles are available locally if requested in advance.  

Fishing is a popular pastime in both the rivers and lakes. Fishing permits may be purchased from the Office de Tourisme in Entraygues.  

As well as the nearby towns there are many interesting villages to visit. Ten villages are classed as "les plus beaux villages de France". This is more than any other department. They are: 

Belcastel; Brousse le Chateau; Conques; Estaing; La Couvertoirade; Najac; Peyre;   Saint Come d'Olt;  Sainte Eulalie d'Olt; Sauveterre de Rouergue.

Natural sites nearby include  Bez-Bédène , views from Puy de Montabès, Pic du Castel, and the waterfall "Saut du Chien", the Chateau de Valon, the Gorge de la Truyère.

A little further away visits by car include the ruined Chateau of Thenieres at 942m; the fascinating Trou de Bozouls, "Coulée de lave"at Roquelaure, the mountains of the Aubrac and Laguiole, and Conques. Further still, a trip to Rocamadour, la Couvertoirade and the recently constructed bridge at Millau all merit a visit. ​
