At the gateway to Provence, the Cevennes and the Massif Central, the Ardeche, a place of culture, art and heritage in the heart of a preserved nature, offers itself to you. The charm of the region is expressed through villages, some of which are classified among the most beautiful in France, such as Balazuc, 25 minutes away, or La Beaume, nestled at the foot of limestone cliffs, or Aiguèze, which proudly dominates the Ardèche Gorges. In the bend of these villages, castles, most of them medieval, are scattered in this fabulous landscape, the castle of Voguë, Boulogne or Rochefort are beautiful examples... It is in this unique environment that the preserved site of the Gorges de l'Ardèche classified as a "natural reserve" offers landscapes that are both grandiose and wild. It is up to you to discover them on foot by taking a 35 km marked out itinerary between scrubland and oaks or by canoe or kayak. Over time, masterpieces of nature have been created... Open your eyes wide, the show is guaranteed with the Pont d'Arc and its 66 m height, the Grotte Chauvet, the Aven d'Orgnac....
