"It's my tour, I invite you to accompany me". Discover daily life in the town of Talairan when the postman roamed the countryside. You have the choice between three walking loops: in 5 hours, or all day strolling, you will have covered the entire tour, nearly 17,5 km. In 4 hours and 14,5 kms, you will discover the Olivières countryside. In 3 hours and 10,5 kms, you will go to the ruins of the old medieval tower of Tréviac. Throughout this route, interpretation panels give you an appointment with Lapinet, Emile and Emilie, Narcisse Péchar and Papillon.

Be careful, the fire risk is often high, especially in summer, and can lead to flower bed closures. Find out before you go consulting the fire risk map for outdoor activities.
Fires strictly prohibited. Do not smoke and never throw cigarette butts in nature. Fires are numerous and catastrophic in our region. In the event of a fire or accident: give alert 18 or 112 from a cell phone.
Protect yourself from the sun and take enough water with you.
Avoid picking flowers and plants. Take all your trash. Close fences and keep dogs on a leash in pasture areas, villages and protected areas.

Mountain bike routes: the routes are often shared with hikers or other users (cars, tractors, etc.). Be careful and always anticipate that a pedestrian may be present around a bend to have time to brake if necessary. Pedestrians have priority in principle, slow down at crossings or stop if the configuration of the terrain requires you to do so.
Thank you and happy hiking!

I did not do the tour all in one go as it is a bit long but it is definitely worth it. The panels with information of all kinds are super interesting, so you can see how people lived in the not too distant time and it's really weird to imagine yourself living like that. The views are superb, the smells too. I loved it.
