The Lozere, France
The Lozère department, France, is named after Mont Lozère, and is situated on the southern tip of the Massif Central. This inland department was first created in 1790 after the French Revolution. Lozère is the northernmost part of the current Languedoc-Roussillon region and is surrounded by the departments of Cantal, Haute-Loire, Ardèche, Gard and Aveyron.
The Lozère department France
The Lozère department is largely mountainous, but also contains some plateau (such as the Plateau d'Aubrac) and numerous rivers, including the Tarn, whose source is on Mont Lozère, and which flows through the Gorges du Tarn in the Causses. The highest point of the department is Mont Lozère at 1,702m. The South East of the Lozère department contains the Cévennes. The Cevennes area has some wonderful scenery and is a popular area for hiking and mountain biking. The Lozère department has always been famed for its cheese, indeed the Roman historian Pliny, praised the cheeses from this area.
The main activities in the Lozere department are cattle farming and tourism (the Aubrac cow is celebrated within France for the quality of the beef it produces). The Lozère department has one of the lowest rates of unemployment in France, but this is often the result of many inhabitants leaving the area in search of work in Lyon, Marseille and Montpellier. The Lozere is a wonderful region for a holiday. The clean air and fantastic walking and cycling routes, make this a popular region, especially with French visitors.
