Ardèche

Ardèche, currently in the Rhône-Alpes region, is ideal for those searching for a rural, outdoor life. It is where the lofty peaks of the Massif Central and the Cévennes mountain range join the fertile farmland of the Rhône valley and boasts a beautiful and diverse landscape of mountains, valleys, waterfalls and forests. Ardèche's other claim to fame is as the home of the hot-air balloon – the Montgolfier brothers invented it here and made their first flight in Annonay in 1783. A festival is held every June to celebrate.

CAPITAL: PRIVAS - Privas is a small town surrounded by three rivers; the Ouvèze, the Mézayon and the Charalon. Once a Huguenot stronghold, much of the original city was destroyed during the Wars of Religion. Privas has been named a Site remarquable du goût for its famous marrons glacés, candied chestnuts.

Highlights

Ardèche's most popular attraction is the Gorges de l'Ardèche, a scenic stretch of the Ardèche river that begins at the village of Vallon-Pont-d'Arc, which is famed for the Pont-d'Arc, spanning the river.
