Monts d’Ardèche Park
Volcanoes, water, chestnuts and contemporary art
A visit to the Monts d’Ardèche is an adventure along country roads, with discoveries to be made around every bend, every village, every terrace and every river. Our hotel at the heart of the park boasts an ideal location to discover all its treasures.
Renowned for chestnut cultivation, the aim of the park is to share and allow people to explore this wild territory with a strong identity, all stemming from the volcanism of its land, remarkable rural architecture and the remains of the great medieval fortresses that punctuate its rocky spurs. Come and explore the valleys covered in chestnut trees and ridge paths, dry stone terraces, age-old bridges, and crystal-clear streams.
Take the time to immerse yourself in this territory to the rhythm of nature, in the footsteps of the regiment of the Dragons du Roy, or muleteers, monks or shepherds.
Rich from a past as a land of commerce and trade, and from an landscape of successive rugged valleys and volcanic and semi-mountainous areas, the Monts d'Ardèche Park offers a vast array of paths for hikers, horse riders and cyclists. The Col de Meyrand on the Massif du Tanargue, the gateway to the Ardèche mountains, provides a breathtaking view over the Beaume Valley. Just 300 m from its summit, an orientation post provides a view towards Valgorge, the National Forest of Prataubérat, the Cévennes National Park, and even Mont Ventoux on a clear day.
