Check-in! A bit about the Ardèche

When you are travelling pretty much full time like we often do, you sometimes want a quick and easy recharge of your batteries, practically a vacation from our vacation. We couldn’t believe that we had stumbled upon this tremendous undiscovered part of France that we had never experienced before. Known as the Grand Canyon of France, the picturesque, lush, green and wild département of the unspoilt Ardèche countryside in the Auvergne Rhone Alpes region in central-southern France is a tapestry of ancient grey rock, verdant hills and thick forests. Heavily loaded with history and tradition, this sparsely populated region was the perfect place to kick back and lose ourselves in the simplest of pleasures that rural France can offer, namely hearty regional fare and untamed beauty.
