When you arrive to Marvejols you already have noticed the beautiful countryside, hills, forests, fields, picturesque villages, silhouettes of castles on the skyline. . . .
Just above Marvejols, on the North is the village of le Lignon, and there, the castle you discover at a road turn (picture 1) is more (or less?) than a castle, it is just a farm, in what I would call French rural style of farm/house keeping: disseminated agricultural tools, silage stacks covered with black plastic tarpaulins and used tyres. . . . . but it?s just part of farm keeping. . . .
There are castles and nice little villages, like Grèzes (picture 2), located at the feet of a truc (Truc? Next tip!), quite picturesque, with ruins of a castle, stone houses, nice hiking trails up the hill, . . . . . From the village, you have beautiful views over the valley and to the Causse Plateau (picture 3).
A fountain can be seen in the main street of the village, when you walk up to the church (picture 4), you walk by the ruins of the castle, breathe the wind, and then walk up the small trails and look at the backside of the village and houses (picture 5), which have some poetic charm, old, a bit lost, very quiet; just an example of the villages around Marvejols.
