Mountain bike hiking tours
Whenever we can, Gilles and I go out for the discovery of the region’s tracks, on foot or by bike! Go on your own with a map, or accompanied by our partners Sentiers Vagabonds.
Love to go for a stroll in Anduze, especially on Thursday morning, market day! The narrow little streets, the Pagoda with the varnished tiles, the Parc des Cordeliers, the tour de l’Horloge and of course Anduze’s famous pottery…Everything’s worth the visit here!
I love these afternoons with friends at the river in the sun, then to end the afternoon with a Jeu-de-boules game! I love to dive in the Gardon of Mialet. My brother Emile comes here to fish… He doesn’t need to go very far!
Maison Rouge – Musée des Vallées Cévenoles
This brand new museum opened its doors in 2017 and is exceptional! Everything about the Cévennes, the traditions, history and memories. To discover alone or with family!
Tip: Do not skip local gastronomy! Pélardon, honey, cold cuts, chestnuts, sweet onions of the Cévennes and wines… Here, eating is an “art de vivre” !
The Cévennes steam locomotive
We took the Cévennes steam train with our family, the views are beautiful! After a break at the Bambouseraie de Prafrance we could see the campsite from the train, just after the detours with the gorges.
Botanical garden with bonsaïs
and miniature animals
I went to the Arboretum with my daughter and we discovered the art, history and beauty of bonsaï trees! My daughter loved the park with the miniature animals she could caress!
On nature discovery tour
The campsite offers such biodiversity that I could stroll here for hours! Trees, plants, birds, take the time to observe and to taste as well! Basil from our aromatic herbs garden will make your omelettes tasty, the thyme you pick in Corbès will provide a strong herb tea for next winter!
Day trip suggestions
Day at the beach!
Plage de l’Espiguette is only a 1,5 hour drive. Beautiful dunes stretch over 10 km long and 2 km large in this preserved nature park.
Surfers and kite-surfers enjoy coming to this Espiguette beach because it stretches far into the sea.
Nice stops on the way are Grau du Roi’s Seaquarium and lovely village Aigues-Mortes, next to the Parc Régional de Camargue.
Cirque de Navacelles and Mont Aigoual, breath taking views
You’d like a day in nature? Bring your camera and go for the discovery of the Cirque de Navacelles, this site’s on the UNESCO world heritage list since 2011.
This preserved natural environment has been shaped by a harmonious alchemy between men and nature and shelters an very rich, varied and extraordinary biodiversity.
Then take your coat and meet at 1565 m. height on Mont Aigoual for an exceptional view, climate and for its meteorological observatory.
Avignon, « the city of popes »
Avignon, famous for its festival as well, is one France’s few cities to have preserved its ramparts. In the historic centre you’ll find the Palais des Papes, the episcopal buildings, the Rocher des Doms and the Pont d’Avignon, well known by little children because of the song.
Paved little streets, shadowy squares, gastronomy and “art the vivre”!
Make a stop on the road in Uzes, city of art & history, and visit the musée des bonbons Haribo.
