The south Cévennes are a region characterised by geological and climatic contrasts. Their varied nature, their scenic and cultural uniqueness and their profoundly laid-back lifestyle make the Cévennes a very special place.
If what you like are solitary hikes in the clear mountain air, unforgettable meetings and the discovery of breathtaking natural scenery, then welcome to a region where all your wishes come true.
Between the Mediterranean and the Massif Central, barren plateaus and spectacular gorges, granite cliffs and the Garrigue, between Mont Aigoual, the Cirque de Navacelles and the Gorges du Tarn, there stretches out a paradise of incomparable peace, amongst rich fauna and flora. 40 percent of all French native plant species grow in the Cévennes National Park. Wolves and lynxes are just as at home here as griffon- and monk-vultures.
