Ardèche Self-catering holiday rental homes, France

Ardeche self-catering holiday rental homes - Book direct with owners on Rent-in-FranceThe Ardèche is a department in south-central France named after the Ardèche River. This stunning department is part of the Rhône-Alpes region. The Ardèche is known for its fast-flowing river that has carved narrow gorges into the valley creating one of the most breathtaking canyons in France. Be sure to visit Privas, the capital of the Ardèche, when staying in a self catering Ardeche holiday rental house or cottage.

It is a land of great contrasts: at the lowest it is 40 metres above sea level at the point at which the Ardèche river flows into the Rhône (in the south east of the department); and then soars up to 1,754 metres at Mont Mézenc (Centre-west). The Ardèche department is bordered to the east by the Rhône valley for 140 km and to the west by the high plateaus of the Massif Central.

With its rivers and streams, it’s no surprise that a visit to the Ardèche has become a priority for canoe and kayak enthusiasts from around the world. The gorges can also be explored on foot along the many tourist trails.

There are five distinct geographical regions within the department for you to explore during your stay in the Ardèche. Green Ardèche is located in the North and has the most relaxing atmosphere. The Ardèche Plateau is to be found in the West and has a pleasant climate - mostly covered with forests and mountains. The Pays de Privas is located in the East –it’s rich in culture and gastronomic delights. Rent Ardeche holiday accommodation and explore the Aubenas area comprising a number of fascinating villages, which have preserved their traditional way of life. Lastly, the South of the Ardèche is popular with tourists due to its dry and hot climate. It is here that you will find the Gorges de l'Ardèche and the Pont d'Arc.Rent Ardeche holiday rental accommodation - Visit Privas
