The Christmas holidays are ideal for getting together with all the family or friends. Why not come and stay in one of our cosy and comfortable gîtes in the Ardèche?
Our holiday cottages have snug, cosy interiors, perfect for enjoying a delicious Christmas dinner or New Year's Eve party.
You can choose a tailor-made holiday for a week or more or just book a short break.
The Ardèche looks rather different in December but the scenery is just as lovely, even in winter. Traditional villages are decked with Christmas lights and the winter sun is still warm. If there is snow this year the Montagne Ardéchoise is a wonderful playground for snowshoeing and cross-country skiing.
Book a week or weekend holiday in the Ardèche for Christmas/New Year and enjoy seeing tourist attractions in a whole new light.
Those that are open between Christmas and New Year put on special holiday events.
The Muséal at Alba la Romaine holds fun-filled workshops for all the family during the 'Saturnales' (26-29th December) - at the Aven d’Orgnac cave go on a breathtaking journey to the centre of the earth - go back in time at the Caverne du Pont d’Arc with its reproduction of the superb cave paintings found in the Chauvet Cave - children will enjoy the woolly workshops held at Ardelaine in St-Pierreville ... not forgetting the many festive Christmas markets in every little village in the Ardèche.
Treat your taste buds during the holiday - visit one of the Ardèche's olive oil mills, a great place to find quality olive oil based products which make an ideal gift (for you or someone else). A feast for the eyes - all along the Route des Métiers d’Art (craft trail) craftsmen and craftswomen open their workshops to visitors and share their love for their particular craft.
