Itinéraire cyclotourisme – De Châteaux en chaumières

Description

Coubon is a town filled with charm on the banks of the River Loire. It is the home of several castles. As you set off, you will see Bouzols Castle to your left, then to your right, you will catch a glimpse of Poinsac Castle. The road rises gently as far as Le Monastier-sur-Gazeille, the starting point for Robert-Louis Stevenson’s “Travels with a Donkey in the Cévennes” in 1878. The town’s prestigious past has handed down its abbey church, one of the finest in the Velay region. On the horizon arises the Recoumène viaduct, built to cross the River Gazeille gorges. The panorama then widens out with Mont Mézenc in the background. Then comes Moudeyres, a village with well-preserved traditional architecture. Finally, you arrive at Brives-Charensac, the town with four bridges, then the castles of Gendriac, Latour-Daniel and Volhac.
