And don’t miss…
Visit Vals-les-Bains with the family
When visiting Vals-les-Bains with the family, there’s one unusual natural attraction you won’t want to miss: a geyser! Four times a day, at the heart of the Parc de l’Intermittente, an intermittent spring rises slowly from the ground, gradually reaching up to 15 metres high and pouring out 800 litres of water! A unique natural wonder that will leave you and your clan awestruck!
The call of the water is never far away in the Ardèche. Campers big and small won’t be able to resist a trip down the River Ardèche in a canoe. Not only is this a great sporting activity accessible to all, but the stunning natural setting of the Gorges de l’Ardèche adds an extra touch of magic that will captivate the whole family.
Visit Vals-les-Bains as a couple
Vals-les-Bains will delight lovebirds who are on holiday to relax because the village is home to a thermal spa! In fact, it boasts no fewer than 145 different sources of mineral water, whose health benefits are well known. Slip on your swimsuit, slippers and bathrobe ready for some sheer relaxation during your romantic escapade in the Ardèche.
And once you feel thoroughly chilled, it’s time to set off and explore the area! Hit the road for a trip to discover the most beautiful villages in the Ardèche, indeed in the whole country. You are just a short drive away from Balazuc and Vogüé, which are included on the official list of the “most beautiful villages in France”. These two Ardèche gems, which sit above the meandering river, are the perfect backdrop for an idyllic interlude, just the two of you!
