The essentials of Ardèche are numerous and not so far from the Inn: la grotte Chauvet, the famous Pont d’arc sur la rivière Ardèche, l’aven d’Orgnac and his musée préhistorique, le muséum d’Ardèche at Balazuc, l’église de Thines, l’Abbaye de Notre Dame des Neiges,…
With Nature the Massif du Tanargue and rivers Beaume and Drobie are inevitable and…unforgettable
