The Cevennes are a mountainous region that forms the southeastern boundary of the Massif Central. Northwest and the Gard and southwest of the Ardèche, the Cévennes have a Mediterranean climate, very similar to that of Haute Provence: a hot summer, sometimes torrential rains in autumn and winter more stringent that it is at altitude. The limestone is very clear everywhere in the landscape in the mountains and traditional houses. The Cevennes National Park created in 1970 protects an exceptional natural heritage, where lovers of nature, beautiful scenery and local produce is better off. Ales is the capital of the Cevennes, but Anduze, Le Vigan or Bessèges Gard are all gateways in the region for your holidays. In the Ardèche, we also quote the towns and villages Ruoms, Joyeuse, Bessèges, Les Vans.
