Our accommodation, starting points for hikes

We are located near the National Reserve of the Gorges de l'Ardèche. It is possible to access it on foot directly from our home by means of an approach walk of about 3 kilometers.
A rapid descent then of about twenty minutes will take you directly to the "Rapid of the black tooth", a bend in the river dreaded by canonists.
From this point, you can descend, via the PR marked yellow and red for a few kilometres, the magnificent canyon carved by the Ardèche over the millennia.
Let yourself be surprised by the beauty of the wild nature and perhaps you will come across a Bonelli's eagle in flight? Open your eyes!
A tightly laced path will then take you back up to the plateau. A last point of view on the gorges and all that remains is to make the way back to the 1000 Pailles.
This is one of the paths that you will be able to hike directly from us.
And then, we also keep some small "secret" paths that we will reveal to you on your arrival!

The comfort of an ecological house in hot weather

The high temperatures of the last few days have made us appreciate the comfort provided by the insulation, straw and other natural materials in our Ecogîte.
Our guests are surprised by the temperature difference between the inside and the outside of the house.
The forest, omnipresent on our site, also brings a noticeable freshness to the exterior.
