Visit Vagnas with the family
What can you do with the family in Vagnas? A plethora of activities! Start with a quick but fascinating visit of the “Le temps de Vagnas” medieval museum which retraces village life from the Stone Age to the contemporary period, then follow up with a trip to the Gorges de l’Ardèche animal park for an encounter with some amusing animals.
Enjoy a lunch worthy of kings then head for the Chauvet 2 cave for an amazing journey through time to meet the first humans who settled in the Ardèche. Visitors of every age will be awestruck by the 36,000-year-old cave paintings! And if your little cherubs are still bursting with energy, take them to the “Accroche-toi aux branches” tree-top adventure park!
Visit Vagnas as a couple
The Ardèche is the perfect setting for all nature of lovebirds keen to enjoy a romantic escapade. Hand in hand, explore the hiking trails, descend the Gorges de l’Ardèche in a canoe or simply capture your time together at the foot of the Pont d’Arc for posterity. One thing is sure: you cute couples will go home your hearts and memories filled with magic and wonder.
And speaking of wonder, you’ll find plenty more at the Aven d’Orgnac cave! Descend the 720 steps (!) and all the beauty and diversity of the stalagmites and stalactites will be revealed to you. Water has flown over millions of years to sculpt some surprising shapes, such as the “Tower of Pisa”, “forest of stacked dishes”, the “giant palm trees” or the emblematic "pinecone". You’ll be astounded by the extraordinary underground landscape.
Camping Vagnas: our handy tips for a successful stay
Dolmens are not only found in Brittany! When out and about in the Ardèche, discover the one in Champagnac which dates back to 3,000 years BC.
Did you know? Vagnas enjoyed a golden age in the 19th century, most notably thanks to sericulture, or silkworm farming. There is even a museum devoted to this in Lagorce – why not stop by for a visit?
The Ardèche is also a wine-growing area that amateur or more experienced oenologists will enjoy exploring. The ideal programme? A vineyard tour followed by a tasting session. Heaven!
Hiking enthusiasts, take the path from Monastier, a 7.6-km circuit that will take you past the ruins of Monastier priory, the monks’ washhouse and the valley of the Rieusset stream.
