Things to do and see in Southern Cévennes

Urge for nature, history, tastes, savours, entertainment and craftsmanship

Do you know a more beautiful destination than Southern Cévennes which, as you travel along, offers the visitors such a variety of landscapes – from garrigue scrubs to Mount Aigoual as well as Cévennes valleys, passes and “causses”? It is a chain of bluish mountains in summer, which turns into a blaze in autumn, takes purple shades in winter and verdant ones in spring.
