Visit Viviers with the family
Once you’ve packed a few snacks in your backpack and pulled on your cycling helmets your gang will be all set for a bike ride beside the Rhône. An outing along the riverbanks is the ideal way to combine physical exercise, quality time with the family and discovery of the beautiful Ardèche region. So hop on your bikes and pedal off on an adventure!
After that, it’s time to leave dry land and take to the calm waters of the river for the next step on your family day out: a canoe trip, fun for every age! And there is no better place than the Ardèche to practise this excellent family activity. It’s quite simply unbeatable – take our holidaymakers’ word for it!
Visit Viviers as a couple
Explore Viviers as you stroll hand in hand with your special someone, starting with a tour of Saint Vincent’s Cathedral. Just as beautiful inside as out, it is home to a series of tapestries from the Manufacture royale des Gobelins – the royal manufacturer of furniture and tapestries. Quite different but still as wonderful is the Châteauvieux lookout tower, which offers an unmissable, all-round view of the village rooftops and the Rhône. Climb to the top with your loved one and you’ll feel all alone in the world!
Surprising but true! Due to its privileged location on the banks of the Rhône, Viviers has its own marina! Loved-up couples won’t take any persuading to embark on a romantic river cruise! A wonderful way to admire the ever-changing Ardèche scenery – the ideal setting for an idyllic escapade, just the two of you.
