The Languedoc-Roussillon region
The Ardèche is a region of southern France where many of the country’s finest qualities battle for dominance over its unruly charms.
Here, the high granite mountains of the Massif Central meet the fertile plains of the Rhône Valley, temperate air from Central France meets the warmth of the Mediterranean and ancient forests give way to endless vineyards.
When Robert Louis Stevenson took his broken heart on a trek through the region, his experience moved him to write a book that is still selling today. When we arrived over a hundred years after him, we found this little-known gem of Southern France to be just as he had recorded it – rugged, peaceful and deeply inspiring.
With such a varied landscape and rich history there are a huge variety of adventures to be had. Visitors choose from enjoying the high ridge-top trails of the western mountains, river trips in the famous gorge, broad paths criss-crossing the plateaus and enchanting rambles in the shade of the ancient forests.
Amid the sights and viewpoints we discover the fascinating remains of a complex past. The recently explored vast underground caves re-drew the map of Neolithic man’s migration across Europe.
Their dolmens, paintings and artifacts tell the tale of pre-historic lives in the forests and caves which generations later were to provide refuge for the persecuted Huguenots and WWII French resistance fighters.
The Roman centre at nearby Nimes still has the most complete amphitheater in the world and was nourished by the phenomenal aqueduct at the Pont du Gard.
To the east, the Pope’s palace at Avignon is a timeless reminder of Vatican influence whilst to the north, well preserved churches and castles speak of the region’s fractious catholic and protestant history.
In spite of the rugged appeal, holidays in the Ardèche are not only for the tough and the brave. Tourism here is well established and a little spirit of adventure reaps massive rewards.
Simple forest paths reveal fascinating caves and waterways, limestone formations create natural labyrinths whilst vineyards and farms are only too happy to give up their bounty of local produce. With accommodation and expert advice in English provided by us, visitors can choose from accompanied tours or simply find advice and accommodation for a self-guided adventure.
Our Ardèche holidays vary from short breaks and stag weekends to week-long packaged multi-activity trips with accompaniment and transport from our staff. Visitors to the area are treated to wonderful fruits, meats and cheeses from local markets as well as opportunities to witness first-hand the traditional methods of a local community largely unfazed by 21st century influences.
Near to the main centres, the area has become very well known among adventure sports enthusiasts. The novice-friendly white water descent of the Ardèche river is a thrilling day or two-day trip whilst there are also plenty of opportunities for climbing, ropes courses, walking, cycling, horse riding, underground caves tours and, of course, gastronomic adventures!

"Most spacious gîte I've ever stayed in!"
The Cèze Valley, located between the Ardèche and the Gard, is one of my favourite areas because of its stunning natural beauty and easy access to the Ardèche gorge, the cities of Avignon & Nîmes, and the Pont du Gard - and the Mediterreanean is but one and a half hour's drive away. The valley is dotted with medieval hilltop villages such as Cornillon & La Roque-sur-Cèze, and there are arguably more bathing places along the Cèze than the Ardèche with easy access in many places - without needing to dive off a huge cliff - including one that is just minutes from the Chateauneuf gite in St André de Roquepertuis. The gîte itself is packed with the crumbly charm of exposed stonework that marks out much of the historical building stock in the area, but what sets the Chateauneuf apart is its size (huge hall, huge living/kitchen diner, and huge bedroom), not to mention the tastefully styled modern-style furniture & fittings. I particularly like the sunny but private terrace that nestles amongst the stonework and higgledy-piggledy rooflines of the internal courtyard of the building. Unfortunately I was there too early in the season to try put the pool, but I appreciated the views westward from the pool terrace typical of the Cèze Valley: the ragged-edged hills stretching off into the distance, the vineyards. The position within the village is also excellent: whereas arriving by car you have to wind up the hill, past the pool to arrive at a charming parking/petanque area, there's a short cut down some steps that lead directly to the village centre within a few tens of metres: unfortunately I didn't discover these until the day of departure! These stone buildings in early April can sometimes get quite chilly, but when we arrived the heating had been thoughtfully turned in anticipation of our arrival. I now understand why the Chateauneuf and other gîtes were all full when I tried to book - even in April: this has to be one of the best gîtes in the Cèze Valley. I suggest booking well in advance if you want to try it!
Thanks for reviewing Chateauneuf, it was great to have you stay with us again. Look forward to working with you in the Future. Best regards Sarah Resort Manager

"Did it once - went back again."
We stayed in the same accommodation last September and loved it and the area so much we chose to go back almost immediately. The immediate region is superb, still rural with enough restaurants and facilities without being too developed. If you want the big touristy thing the immediate area is probably not for you. That said the Ardeche Gorge offers lots of outdoor activity stuff like kayaking, hiking, cycling , climbing, all of which Evasion can help you with. The Gite is nicely fitted out, contemporary rather than French traditional. The overall property affords space, the pool provides a place to relax and offers spaces in the sun and shade. Great views too!! St Andre is a pretty little village, lovely to walk around in the summer evenings - note that it only has a Bar and a Pizza van which visits on Fridays evenings. If you're a wine buff there's more than enough vineyards within 10kM to keep you happy ( or merry). Lastly, Evasion Travel. The girls at Evasion are helpful in the extreme, thanks to Sarah for helping throughout the lead up to our stay.
