The magazine Echappées belles en Occitanie immersed in ten natural parks

The special issue published by Midi Libre is in its third edition. It comes out this Thursday, June 23 on newsstands.

Beautiful escapes in Occitania, season 3. In the summer of 2020, Midi Libre published a first issue… 50 heritage and natural sites, from the cirque of Gavarnie to that of Navacelles, from the Pont du Gard to the Millau viaduct, from the Abbey of Fontfroide to that of Valmagne.

In the summer of 2021, we were offering you a 100% nature card, with outdoor destinations and no entrance fee. 50 favorites, again, over the discoveries in the thirteen departments of the region. Lakes, ponds, chasms, cliffs, mountains, coastlines, gorges, forests, valleys, causses…

And so, in this summer of 2022, it is through the filter of national parks and regional natural parks that we wanted to take you on a ride. 10 parks in total on the perimeter of Occitania: two national, those of the Cévennes and the Pyrenees, and eight regional.

Iconic animals


We invite you to immerse yourself in these territories, through ten pages per park, with a series of recurring headings: what to discover the history of these parks and their landscapes, ideas for hikes, animals emblematic places, personalities, typical culinary recipes, nice places to eat and sleep. In short, advice and scouting to make your job easier while serving as a guide, holiday version in a short circuit. Going out, discovering, visiting, hiking, photographing, marveling… And all that very close, here, in Occitania.

Price: 6 euros, on newsstands. You can also order it at
