Ardèche plein cœur
This land stretches from the Rhône valley with the vineyards of Cornas and St-Péray to the feet of Mont-Gerbier-de-Jonc, from Privas to Vernoux , crossing the Eyrieux valley.
Privas, famous for its “marrons glacés”, is also the National Government's Administrative centre in the county.
Nearby are the Eyrieux Valley's famous peach orchards, the ‘Dolce Via’, a paradise for cycling and walking.
The area includes the unique Soyons archaeological site and the villages here often have fabulous names: Vieux Rompon, Coux...
The balmy southern sun gives this area of strongly contrasting relief a very temperate climate.
