The countryside

Maison Forestière is situated in the beautiful nature reserve Parc des Monts d'Ardèche. The landscape is varied: hills, forests, water, picturesque villages and of course a magnificent vista of the Alps. Maison Forestière is close to Privas, the capital of the Ardèche, with all amenities, including theater, cinema and swimming pool. Every Wednesday and Saturday there is a market and every first Sunday of the month you can visit the flea market.

The Ardèche has many places worth visiting. For example the town of Aubenas, the Gerbier de Jonc the source of the Loire, the enchanting Bois de Païolive, the location Vallon Pont d'Arc, which lies at the beginning of the Gorge de l'Ardeche (kayaking) or the beautiful medieval village of Vogüé.
There is also an abundant choice of caves, excavations and museums. I will be happy to advise.

Many enjoyable walks can be made from Maison Forestière; information about hiking trails is available. Additional information can be obtained at the Tourist Office in Privas.
