Location description from owner

The Languedoc-Roussillon region

The Ardche is a region of southern France where many of the countrys finest qualities battle for dominance over its unruly charms.

Here, the high granite mountains of the Massif Central meet the fertile plains of the Rhne 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.

Saint-Andre-de-Roquepertuis

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 amphitheatre 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.

“A stunning location with access to beautiful nature”

Reviewed 21 Jun 2012

We stayed at Lirac with Evasion Travel and I was very happy with our choice. The location was really lovely, surrounded by lush greenery, hills covered with trees, the Ceze river nearby which we swam in and also hired canoes. The gite was pretty well equipped and there was an unheated pool which was great for our son and provided a focus for him when we were not going out. There aren't that many facilities nearby for young children but you can use your imagination and visit the river, hire canoes, go for walks, play games. The cave visit at Aven was very worthwhile. I think it was difficult to communicate upon arrival as the lovely lady who welcomed us (she was very hospitable) could not speak English and our French is limited, so we found that a bit tricky! We would have liked to use the gas BBQ which was communal I believe but neighbouring holiday makers kept it to themselves the whole week. I think it is unneccessary to charge extra for cleaning also, it would be good to have that included in the price. Overall a lovely break and would consider returning there in the future, thank you!
