What to do

Living France - - DESTINATION -

Visit the Pont d’Arc Cav­ern, the replica of the UNESCO-listed Chau­vet Cave, which con­tains the old­est known ex­am­ples of pari­etal art, pro­tected for more than 36,000 years due to the col­lapse of its en­try point.

Ca­noe down the Ardèche gorges.

Cy­cle along the Rhône-side voies douces, or chal­lenge your­self on sec­tions of the fa­mous l’Ardé­choise road race.

Take to the air above An­nonay, the birth­place of the hot-air bal­loon.

Ride the Train de l’Ardèche, an old steam train that runs through the pic­turesque land­scape of the Doux val­ley.

If vis­it­ing in au­tumn, look out for events in Les Castag­nades’ pro­gramme cel­e­brat­ing the de­lights, and his­tor­i­cal im­por­tance, of chest­nuts in Ardèche.
