Welcome to the Valley of Cèze!
La Vallée Verte is the perfect base for discovering the various regions as the camp site is situated at the intersection of the Ardèche, Cévennes, Provence and the Rhône Valley.
The Gard département is, both in nature and lifestyle, typically mediterranean. This region boasts almost 300 days of sunshine per year! This southern paradise contains a wealth of beautiful and enchanting landscapes and offers a wide range of attractions which have a uniquely historical and cultural heritage. You need look no further; you are in the South of France!
The best of France
La Roque sur Cèze has earned the title “One of France’s most beautiful villages’ since 2008. Thanks partially to the imposing waterfall, the Cascades du Sautadet and its narrow medieval entrance bridge, the Pont Charles Martel.
The diversity of the countryside around La Vallée Verte is attractive to walkers, swimmers, anglers, sun-worshippers, mountain bikers and cyclists. You can navigate the Cèze or Ardèche in a canoe or kayak alongside pebbly beaches and magnificent rocks. There are more than 300 kilometres of marked out paths that criss-cross this region. Stroll through vineyards, fields of lavender, besides rivers and through woods. Most paths are also accessible for horse riders.
The beautiful towns of Avignon, Nîmes, Uzès and Orange are witness to a cultural and religious way of life. These destinations are within one hour of the camp site. Both local and tourist products are on sale at the many weekly markets: olive oil, goat cheese, lavender oil, herbs, conserves. Be sure not to miss the ‘brocantes’ second-hand pottery markets or the medieval feasts.
