Must do

The Ardeche is not only a French department and river, it is also known as a fantastic holiday destination. And rightly so! Because there is so much to do here and there really is something for everyone. Get some inspiration here.


Lavender fields

Visit the lavender fields in the Ardèche. The beauty of flowers, scents and colours is at its best between late June and early July.
You can visit the Maison de la Lavande in Saint-Remèze.



Cycling enthusiasts will find plenty of challenging routes in their navigation system.
For those who prefer fun to fatigue, we recommend the Via Ardèche between Aubenas and Saint-Paul-le-Jeune.

Pont d'Arc

Pont d'Arc and the Gorges

Of course, you cannot visit the Ardèche without having seen the Pont d'Arc. In high season, you can opt for the pay car park at the Pont d'Arc, or leave on the free shuttle bus from the Chastelas pay car park. Either way, the Pont d'Arc deserves more than a short stop. Don't forget to bring your picnic and your swimming gear!
Also take time to explore the beautiful Gorges de l'Ardèche, by bike or car. A stop to visit the Haute Corniche is a must! Prepare yourself using the official site of the Ardèche Tourist Office.

Bois de Païolive

Bois de Païolive

Those who enjoy beautiful walks with spectacular views should definitely go on an adventure in the Bois de Païolive. Download the app 'Visorando' and then choose "Le Bois de Païolive (petite boucle)" (5.15km, height difference of 70m, 1h40).



There are beautiful walks in the area. We advise you to leave early, bring plenty of water and consult the very handy "Visorando" app.

Canoë Ardèche


The Ardèche invites you for a canoe trip. Adventure and refreshment guaranteed! Within walking distance of Gîte César you will find La Base Nautique du Pont d'Arc. It's up to you what distance you want to cover on the water.
