32 kilometres of spectacular gorges in the heart of southern Ardèche! That is what lovers of grandiose landscapes can admire between Vallon-Pont-d'Arc and Saint-Martin-d'Ardèche...

A wild conservation area combining natural treasure and built heritage

Situated on the eastern edge of the Massif Central, the Ardèche Mountains Regional Nature Park extends across an area of more than 180,000 hectares, and covers six different landscapes, which are the Boutières, the Vernoux plateau, the Sucs region, the High Cévenne, the Piémont cévenol and the southern Cévenne. Ancient chestnut groves, dry stone terraces, old  volcanos, forests and pastures, gorges and verdant valleys, moors and garrigue all make up the variety of landscapes which characterise this vast protected area.

The Ardèche mountains stretch out to the west of the Park, with, amongst others, the Tanargue massif, an area of medium height mountains good for outdoor activities such as hiking or mountain biking, horse-riding and fishing, in the summer; and alpine skiing, cross-country skiing and snowshoe walking in the winter, at the Croix de Bauzon resort.

Famous volcanic sites, like Mount Mézenc – the highest point in the Ardèche (1 753 metres high), the Ray-Pic waterfall, the Jaujac basalt lava flows and Mount Gerbier de Jonc, at the foot of which the Loire river has its source, will delight nature lovers.

While the Ardèche Mountains Nature Park enchants sports lovers, it also delights those wishing to relax, with its three spa resorts, Neyrac-les-Bains, Saint-Laurent-les-Bains et Vals-les-Bains. Their spa establishments provide, apart from medical cures, courses of treatment for well-being, fitness and beauty therapy, such as the Thermal Baths at Neyrac-les-Bains, which offer body treatments inspired by Asia and the East...To stay in the Ardèche Mountains is also to take time to luxuriate on the beach of Lake Saint-Martial, where bathing is supervised in July and August, or to descend the Eyrieux or Chassezac rivers by canoe-kayak.

This wild conservation area is also rich in built heritage, predominantly stone edifices: Romanesque churches; medieval Castles; the picturesque little village of Chalencon with its granite houses; the hillside village of Antraigues-sur-Volane, with its shady terraces on Place de la Résistance Square and lanes whose walls are decorated with sculptures ; the remains of the Charterhouse of Bonnefoy, dating from the 18th century; the character village of Jaujac with its basalt lava flows; and Rochemure Castle, within whose walls the Park House (Maison du Parc) now stands.

To visit this part of Ardèche is also to learn about its history, traditions and skills, thanks to various museums such as the House of the Chestnut (Maison du Châtaignier) at Saint-Pierreville, the Bourlatier farm at Saint-Andéol-de-Fourchades, the Museum of Vivarais Protestants at Pranles, the Eco-museum (Ecomusée des Terrasses) at Saint-Michel-de-Chabrillanoux, and also the Chestnut Grove Museum (Musée de la Châtaigneraie) at Joyeuse.

The Madeleine Cave nestles on the left bank of the famous Ardèche gorges, 7 kilometres from the village of Saint-Remèze, and was discovered in 1887 by a shepherd who had a passion for subterranean adventures. From mid-March to mid-November, a guided tour which lasts an hour invites young and old to enter a magical, mysterious world, where they can see a succession of stalagmites and stalactites, huge draperies, and other splendid, grandiose concretions...The enchantment of the place is also emphasised wonderfully by a sound and light show.

Once you have left the Cave, head for the Madeleine belvedere, which offers superb panoramic views of the Ardèche gorges!

The Vivarais capital has an important architectural heritage

The administrative and religious capital of Vivarais, the town of Viviers, on the right bank of the Rhône, in southern Ardèche, retains an important heritage from its rich past, including many listed monuments. A heritage discovery trail will lead you to its architectural treasures: the Town Hall, in the former bishops' palace; the 18th-century Hôtel de Roqueplane, now the seat of the diocese; the Cathedral of St Vincent, Romanesque, flamboyant Gothic and 18th-century in style, with its choir decorated by Gobelins tapestries and its marble high altar; the 16th-century Knights' House (Maison des Chevaliers) with its magnificent Renaissance façade, decorated with medallioned busts; the Grande Rue with the elegant mansions of Beaulieu and Tourville, both dating from the 18th century...

If you stroll around the upper town, you can discover its fine viewpoints, especially the Châteauvieux belvedere, which gives a superb panoramic view over the roofs of the town and the Rhône Valley.

Tourist site
A medieval fortress overlooking the Rhône Valley

From its high position on a basalt ridge, overlooking the Rhône Valley and the village of Rochemaure, this 12th- century fortress has retained features from its medieval past such as a Romanesque keep, the remains of a stately home, as well as crenellated ramparts that go all the way down the hill. You must be sure to take a stroll around the restored Fare quarter, beside the castle, where there are picturesque stone houses .Below stands the outline of the 13th-century Chapel of Our Lady of the Angels (Notre-Dame-des-Anges), in the Provençal Gothic style.

In July and August, a sound and light show highlights the heritage of fortified Rochemaure.

Tourist site
A gem of Romanesque art is tucked away in the hamlet of Thines

Perched high on a rocky promontory, the village of Thines, a haven of peace in the commune of Malarce-sur-la-Thines, in the Ardèche Mountains Regional Nature Park, contains a gem of Romanesque art named as an Historic Monument by Prosper Mérimée: the 12th- century of Church of Our Lady (Notre-Dame), remarkable for its imposing door, its chevet and its sculpted capitals. Other places to explore are the narrow lanes and thackstone roofed houses, which, together with the church, make Thines a place full of authentic charm.

Tourist site
A destination for food-lovers at the heart of Provençale Drôme

Located south of Valence, Montélimar is a welcoming city in Provençale Drôme. A legendary stop on the Route Nationale 7 road, the city is famed for its nougat and is the uncontested capital of this sweet treat.

Steeped in history, Montélimar possesses some beautiful built heritage represented by its flagship monument: the Adhémar Castle. Built on top of a hill, it overlooks the city and offers magnificent views of the surrounding countryside. Once a medieval palace, its Southern Romanesque architecture dates back to the 12th century. Some fine reminders of its past still stand today, like a fortified enclosure with a wall walk on top, a seigniorial lodge, a chapel and a keep. At the end of the 16th century, it became a bastioned citadel then a prison until 1926. Today, it is a contemporary art centre that hosts temporary exhibitions. At the foot of the castle is a park where you can make the most of its splendour and take a pleasant stroll.

Continue your tour of Montélimar with a leisurely walk along the pedestrian streets in its historic centre filled with shops. There are still a number of old mansions to see, like the Renaissance-style house of Diane de Poitiers, dating from the 15th and 16th centuries. There's also the 17th-century Hôtel du Puy-Montbrun and the 18th-century Hôtel de Chabrillan. The St. Martin Gate, made of stone, is one of the last remnants of the ramparts. Rebuilt in the 18th century, the Collegiate Church of the Holy Cross (Sainte-Croix) still has its bell tower and choir from the 16th century. Around the church, enjoy the streets of shops and town squares with terraces where you can soak up the city's lively atmosphere!

Another famous spot in Montélimar is the Allées Provençales, avenues planted with plane trees and dotted with cafés next to a pleasant park. Popular with children, this huge park with century-old trees has a small farm, a large duck pond, a playground and a merry-go-round.

Culture enthusiasts mustn't miss the Saint-Martin Museum of Contemporary Art, which hosts a temporary exhibition every summer featuring big names in contemporary art.

Your trip to Montélimar will also be a trip back to your childhood days. Start with the Palace of Sweets and Nougat, a fun interactive space for children and grown-ups. Then head to the Museum of Miniatures. Based in an old chapel, this attraction devoted to the art of miniature-making has a very fine collection of dolls' houses. And of course, don't forget to stop by one of the city's many nougat shops!

Medieval village perched above the river Ardèche

Perched on top of a rocky peak, Aiguèze is a picturesque medieval village overlooking the entrance to the Ardèche gorges. Listed among the most beautiful villages of France, Aiguèze charms its visitors in a very special way, with its ruined fortress, its paved alleyways winding between beautiful houses, the church with its Renaissance door, and its little square sitting in the shade of the plane trees. The wall-walk at the foot of the fortress rock offers a magnificent panoramic view of the surrounding landscape.

Tourist site
A conservation area, in the heart of Ardèche, good for outdoor activities

Situated in the Massif Central, in the heart of the Ardèche mountains, the Tanargue also has the peculiarity of being in the Ardèche Mountains Regional Nature Park, on the watershed between the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea. Nicknamed the Tonnerre (Thunder), this protected massif is home to a great ecological treasure. Its highest point is at Grand Tanargue, at 1,511 metres in altitude. Roaming the Tanargue, you can explore its wild landscape, complete with craggy foothills, high altitude grassland, peat bogs, streams and ancient forests.

To enjoy a beautiful panoramic view of the Tanargue Massif, go to the Meyrand Pass, where there is a marvellous orientation balcony at an altitude of 1,371metres.

A stay in the Tanargue is also an ideal occasion to enjoy outdoor activities like hiking, mountain biking, cycling and climbing.

A winter sports resort, Croix de Bauzon, stretches across the heart of this area, where you can practise alpine skiing, cross-country skiing, snowshoe walking and sledging. There is also a spa resort, Saint-Laurent-les-Bains, which specialises in treating rheumatic disorders as well as promoting general well-being and relaxation at the baths.

Tourist site
A beautiful medieval village at the entrance to the Sainte-Beaume gorges

Discover, at the entrance to the Sainte-Beaume gorges in southern Ardèche, the beautiful medieval village of Saint-Montan, which has been admirably restored, with charming little sloping streets dotted with pretty stone façades. At the peak of the village are the remains of a great feudal Castle, which was said to be impregnable. Having strolled along the Saint-Montan streets, you can amble around the scented "curate's" garden, then go back to the road towards Larnas and its Romanesque church, to explore the unspoilt, craggy countryside of the Sainte-Beaume gorges.
