We had a couple of hours to kill before our flight and so we decided to take a round tour of Le Sidobre. We found the rocks and the lake and they were such fascinating features!

This area us truly stunning with its natural granite rock formations. You can admire them from afar, get up close or climb all over them yo your hearts content. A particular favourite with kids & teens is 'rivière des rochers', fabulous way to spend an hour or so, clambering and jumping from boulder to boulder! Free, beautiful, simply stunning!

If your idea of a holiday/break is partying in a beach resort then don't even consider le Sidobre. Visit le Sidobre to enjoy the peace of the countryside and admire the strange rock formations.

Some are interesting to behold but none of them achieve "rock star" status. Trails are not easy to navigate, over rocks, tree roots, etc. One of the rocks "Le Rocher D' oiel" is 1/3... More

So nice for cycling or walking. You will love the stones. It is unbelievable that it was created by nature.

We spent 10 days in Castres and on a few occasions I cycled out of town and twice we drove out to include Le Sidobre in our itinerary and it did not disappoint. This is rural wild France with very sparce population density, great variety of rock, water, plant life and all in a wide relatively flat enjoyable setting which... More

A brilliant part of the Tarn for walking and spectacular scenery - the granite formations provide excellent points of interest and photographic opportunities.
