Which cities and sights are around Domaine de la Velle? We obviously can not put everything on the site, but you will find below a small selection of the possibilities.
In Cazals, the little town which is 3 km away, you will find two bakeries, a supermarket, a butcher, a bank with ATM, a post office and two nice restaurants. On Sunday there is a weekly market with delicious local produce, where you can sit in the shade of the trees for a drink or a snack. Cazals also has a lake of 2.7 hectares, where you can swim and fish. We highly recommend the flower market in May.
