A ton of activities in the heart of Ardèche
Between rivers, forests, plateaux and other grandiose natural sites, Ardèche is a unique environment for practising a variety of outdoor activities. The more than 6000 km of marked hiking trails will allow you to enjoy the diversity of this area’s landscapes. Close to the hotel, discover the Bourbouillet Chandolas circuit or the easier Raoux loop, and prepare to be charmed by the small villages you pass through. If you’d rather hit the bikes, take the safe Viarhôna or Dolce Via trails, or the easier Payre trail. Lovers of mountain biking will love the Great Ardèche Mountain Bike Route, a 315-km itinerary spanning from the north to the south of the region, alternating between small winding lanes and large slopes.
Another way of enjoying this superb natural environment is seeing it by horseback. Many riding schools close to Chandolas offer unforgettable rides amid gorges and hills. In such a beautiful environment with so many rivers, however, there’s also lots to do in the water. For swimming and bathing, you’ll have the choice between specially developed beaches or smaller, wilder areas. Discover the Ardèche and Chassezac gorges the best way possible, hurtling along aboard a canoe, kayak or row-boat led by a boatman. For a wilder experience, try canyoning in the Borne gorges, or try the via ferrata or climbing routes along the rivers. If you enjoy fishing, you’ll also love the numerous aquatic sites where you’ll be able to enjoy your favourite activity at your own leisure.Back to the surroundings
