Say the Ardèche river and you’ll think canoeing! Ideal for a trip out with that special someone, it would be a shame not to give this sport a try in such an idyllic setting as the Gorges de l’Ardèche. Board your canoe, paddle in hand and life jacket strapped on, and set off for a romantic escapade along the river with your one and only.
Back on dry land, stroll hand in hand around the historic centre of Balazuc to round off your lovely day together. From the feudal castle, now converted into a guest house, to the Romanesque church and 12th-century square keep, the historic heart and sheer charm of Balazuc never fail to astound.
