on the Causses

An open-air art trail

This dry stone art-refuge is the first of the “Windows on the Landscape” open-air art trail on GR 65. Designed by the artist-architects of A Encore-Heureux Collective and Pieter Dijkstra at the invitation of Derrière Le Hublot and the Parc naturel régional des Causses du Quercy, Unesco World Geopark, Super-Cayrou is composed of two caselle tents made of stone and a terrace to contemplate an exceptional landscape.

A know-how that comes back to life

Built by Vincent Caussanel and his team of dry-stone builders, Super-Cayrou revives and reinvents the traditional know-how of lauziers. More than one hundred tons of stone, extracted from the Grèzes micro-quarry, were needed to build it! Corbel seats, roofs of lauzes on corbelled vault, stubborn and sound of stones will have (almost) no more secrets for you!
