Make your holiday bookings for the autumn mid-term holidays. You will love the gentle Ardèche climate and the Great Outdoors.
As a couple with or without children or grandchildren, you are sure to find the ideal rental among our S/C homes and B&Bs in the Ardèche. Just choose the length of time you want to spend here - a week, a weekend or a few days during the holidays.
The Ardèche invites you to explore its wonders including the caves of the Madeleine and St Marcel d Ardèche and the famous prehistoric sites of the Aven d Orgnac and World Heritage site Caverne du Pont d Arc (a replica of the Chauvet Cave with 37,000 year-old wall paintings). The natural stone Pont d’Arc bridge carved out by the river Ardèche over the millennia and the Château de Vogüé are ideal destinations for visits on foot and by bike as are the host of historic “villages de caractère”. Other possibilities for strolls and outings are the Dolce Via and Viarhôna hiking paths - reconverted railway lines and tow paths.
For a hands-on experience with wild animals, go to the Peaugres Safari park. And to get to know our local history, visit our many museums like the Muséal in Alba La Romaine, the Ardèche Museum in Balazuc, Ardelaine the wool museum in St Pierreville and many others.
And don’t miss the 19th Edition of the Castagnades (the “Sweet Chestnut Festivals”).
After savouring local produce, head off for Green Ardèche and explore the Doux river Gorges by Vélorail or on the Vivarais steam train line (Vivarais train line).
