About this location
The Rhône-Alpes region
About the Ardèche
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!

"Fantastic, peaceful, picturesque, charming and welcoming"
The gite is a generous size for two people and could sleep another couple on the sofabed with no problems. The gite inside has everything you need - fully equipped kitchen, decent shower and bath, large dining and lounge area.
Outside, there is a BBQ shared with the gite above; this area is small and shaded but perfectly fine in the summer as it's so hot.
The pool is quiet, clean, set on what seems to be the edge of the landscape so the views are lovely. There are plenty of loungers for the occasions when the other 3 gites may also be using the pool.
The hostess, Florence, is charming, and very helpful. However, she speaks no English and does not make any apologies for this!
The local area is fabulous, amazing hidden river beaches, waterfalls, vinyards, canoeing, local shops and scenery, - one week is not enough!!!
I will most definitely recommend and return next year.
Prices is the area for provisions etc are excellent, much cheaper than the south coast of France, and cheaper than the Ardeche (which is reachable in just 40 minutes and well worth a visit).
The only downsides I can think of are the lack of Air con in the gite (and our portable fan was broken at the time of visit), there were a few insects lurking in the gite which I suppose is normal for that climate, and the old-style TV which did not play DVDs very well.
