The Ardèche & its surrounding area

The Ardèche, land of discovery

With its unique heritage and landscapes, the Ardèche is THE destination to get away from it all. Feeling fit? Explore our countless footpaths or hire canoes and chill out down by the river's edge... Are you more cultural cognoscente or daydreamer? Take in our internationally-renowned prehistoric heritage where the very first Europeans walked, as well as our many caves, each more eccentric than the last. Tourism in the Ardèche also means slowing down and taking the time to feel the warm sun on your face, the vibrant natural world we live in... It's the strange stirring in the grass left by the fleeing lizard that saw you coming.

So why not sip a nice cold drink as you take

in a prehistoric demonstration and make

the most of the Cave's cool all-year-round 11°C?
