Artist's Description

One of the most fairytale-like villages in the Gorges du Tarn would have to be Saint-Chely-du-Tarn. Nestled on the steep banks of the Tarn river in southern France, clinging onto and between the rocky outcrops of the gorge, Saint-Chely-du-Tarn has all the charm and melancholy of a French village hundreds of years old with all the modern amenities required by the modern tourist.

With only one way in and out, across a tall stone arched bridge and through a single lane arch cut into the rock of the gorge, and no through road, Saint-Chely-du-Tarn is an idyllic peaceful retreat, and therefore popular with those looking for a quiet get-away. Being almost in the centre of the gorge, it is also a popular stopping off point for those kayaking along to Tarn. Situated on a gentle bend in the river, it also has a stony beach, suitable for children wanting to paddle.

The church at Saint-Chely-du-Tarn
The village is only small, and can easily be covered by foot within a day. One of the first buildings the visitor passes is a small church, all that remains of a monastery that once dominated the village. There are no major sites or monuments in the village, but it still dotted with enchanting stone houses, many of which are now gîtes – homes available for short term rent.

Saint-Chely-du-Tarn is at its most enchanting when the creeks that run through town have a little water in them – such as after a few days of rain. The water runs not only through town, but out between the old buildings to cascade in a waterfall into the Tarn river"
