Summer Road Trip, Day 3: Welcome to the Aveyron! On the Road to Rodez
It’s just under two hours from Octon to Rodez if you shoot up the A75, but we have plans (of course) to see a few sights en route — an abbey, a château, and a Templar fortress – so we meander along on the smaller country roads and make a few accidental discoveries along the way.
We enjoy our breakfast on the terrace of the Hotel La Calade and, since it’s warming up, hit the road pretty early with our map. Today we’re leaving L’Hérault département and entering the Aveyron (12).
