  • South Ardèche, it's dry, almost barren. Then suddenly, the trees and huge rocks around the road: we arrived. The course in the Woods is easy (plan still good shoes) and enchanting. Many panels explain the flora and preserved. There are mazes of huge rocks where we guess figures and animals, and trees grown in sneaking between these giants have taken strange and twisted forms. Of numerous small caves and cavities are explorable on the first meters, but be careful not to fall. You quickly understand why there has been so many mysteries and legends around this wood! When my husband introduced me to this place last year, he forbade me to take my camera. He was right: otherwise I'd still be there.

  • Super fun forest full of jagged rocks. Unfortunately only the opportunity 1 walk. Would love to go back to the other 2 also. Good mountain shoes are highly recommended. Very unsuitable for people with walking difficulties. Not to do with stroller or buggy. Son of 22 also found it super!
