The Ardèche

If you know how to swim, you will have no difficulty going down the Ardèche Gorges in the summer.

Those with a taste for adventure prefer to come in the spring when the water is faster flowing. But you can also take your time.

Numerous beaches along the stretch. Swimming, fishing, climbing. Discover the countryside and away from it all, naturism.
