And don’t miss…
Visit Larnas with the family
The Ardèche is renowned for its vast choice of family-friendly activities. Whether you’re looking for a fun, sporty or gourmet experience, there’s plenty of choice here! If there’s one thing you mustn’t miss, it’s a trip to the Chauvet 2 cave. This UNESCO-listed site is a faithful reproduction of the original cave which contains cave paintings that are 36,000 years old! A trip back in time that your budding young historians will simply LOVE.
On the border between the Ardèche and the Drôme, la Ferme aux crocodiles in Pierrelatte is also ideal for a family outing. As its name suggests, this animal park is home to a congregation of crocodiles, but that’s not all! There is also a lovely collection of birds, turtles, snakes and lizards to admire. Your young campers will really love getting up close to so many different animals!
Visit Larnas as a couple
Nature lovers should add a descent of the Gorges de l’Ardèche in a canoe to their holiday to-do list. A romantic trip on the water surrounded by the spectacular beauty of this unique site leaves every visitor spellbound. The highlight of your trip will be the Pont d’Arc, another emblematic natural wonder that will provide the perfect backdrop for a loved-up selfie!
Like the Ardèche, Larnas benefits from a rich terroir where some typically southern produce thrives, such as lavender, almonds and vines. And there’s another idea for a romantic outing: set off to discover how these amazing products are grown and made! And the bonus? You’ll be able to choose a souvenir or two to take back home!
