Figeac / Vallée du Celé

Figeac countryside / Célé Valley

30 km from Gramat is Figeac, rich in art and history, in the heart of the Célé valley, awarded the coveted label of outdoor nature centre for its many activities and adventures. Here you can try canoeing, climbing, hiking or cycling with the family; speleology, via ferrata, diving with your friends; maybe trek the Santiago de Compostela route; and discover architectural jewels unknown to tourists like Marcilhac-sur-Célé abbey or Espagnac Sainte-Eulalie priory. 

In Figeac, it’s easy to lose yourself in the medieval streets. Wending through the artisanal ones, you are sure to find half-timbered houses with arched entrances. You may come across the Champollion museum, and go in search of the Place des Ecritures. or arrive at the Hôtel de la Monnaie, where the tourist office is located with the latest tips and advice on the must-sees in the region



Our communications manager Virginie is falling for: Marcilhac-sur-Célé abbey

« This old Benedictine abbey with a covered and a ruined part tends to leave us breathless with its immensity. It has a mysterious aspect that inspires many artists. It is a religious building that blends perfectly with history and nature.”


All day long or for half a day, canoe down the Célé.

We are happy to recommend Ô pieds dans l’eau, our partner in Marcilhac-sur- Célé. You can rent a canoe here, and have breakfast, lunch or dinner in a wonderful outdoor setting by the river.
