This area includes Ariège, Aveyron, Haute-Garonne, Gers, Lot, Hautes-Pryénées, Tarn and Tarn-et-Garonne
A great hotel on the winding streets of Conques, one of the many "must--see villages" in the Aveyron region of France. Don't be shocked when "chef" comes round to drive up to parking lot on the edge of town to help with your bags. It is just a very friendly place. Great rooms--ask for #5, great meals..
There are four room that have views out over the hillside, of which we stayed in Number 5.. Great views, very peaceful. We had a very good meal at the hotel.
Of course during the day the draw in the area is the 12th century abbey and the incredible figures in the 12th century tympanum. Conques became a major stopping place as one of the four principal routes leading to Santiago de Compostela, because the 12th century Benedictine abbey housed the relics of St. Foy. During medieval times, Conques was a miraculous place as Christian pilgrims claimed miracles were caused by the relics of St. Foy.
