In the heart of the UNESCO Geo natural park of the Monts d’Ardèche, sheltered by the Ceven park and the unspoiled listed and protected beauty spots, The Châtaigneraie is the ideal base camp to follow your daily mood.

From white limestone cliffs to dark or golden screes,
Secret beaches and famous natural diving boards,
A nap or an adrenalin-boosting canyon,
