The countryside rises gradually through the vineyards of the Rhone valley until
reaching the rugged and beautiful hills of the Monts du Vivarais and the Cevennes.
From these hills numerous rivers flow towards the Rhone, creating spectacular gorges
where kayaking and swimming are possible, surrounded by mighty cliffs. Small villages
cling to the hillsides, retaining a real sense of France as it has been through
the ages. The mighty Loire also rises here, flowing westwards on its long journey
to the sea.
Camping holidays in the Ardeche offer a real taste of provincial France. The
local wines are not expensive and complement the wholesome and excellent cuisine
of the region. The daily trip to the boulangerie, boucherie and alimentaire means
the produce is fresh and locally sourced. Just about every type of outdoor activity
is possible, ranging from the water-based activities in the rivers and lakes to
walking, mountain biking, horse riding, quad biking and paragliding. There's
even a karting track at Aubenas-Lanas. Pot-holing is popular in the limestone cliffs
and several companies offer expert guidance.
