Tarn is a fisherman’s paradise due to its rich source of fish in the Tarn river - including Perch, Roach, Carp, Bleak and Cat Fish. Golf fanatics will find a number of golf courses spread across the department, so wherever you decide to set up base when renting a Tarn Self catering Holiday Home, there should always be a golf course rather close. One popular course is the Chateau Lasbordes in Albi.
