The Cévennes

Nature that is both beautiful and unruly, between Aigoual and the Mont Lozère, to the south east of the region, the land of the Cévennes presents a stark contrast between the harshness of mountain life and the mildness of the Mediterranean climate. This harsh, history-filled land was the stage for the Camisard war and stronghold of the Huguenots in the early XVIIIth century.

This is the land of shale and furrowed valleys, steep rocks, abruptly downard sloping contours, a great many of which run into streams and torrents. This is also the land of scrub, beech forest, fir plantations, oak groves and above all, chestnut groves. Despite its harshness, the area still provides as quiet and beautiful natural setting where countless hamlets with squat houses have breathed life into these impenetrable mountains. On barren slopes, the terrace system has enabled cultivation of the "golden tree", the famous mulberry bush which, together with the arrival of silk, contributed to the wealth of the region but also the "bread tree" or chestnut tree, symbol of the Cévennes and food for generations of Cévennes inhabitants.

From Florac to Saint-germain-de-Calberte, land of winding roads, the Cévennes are packed with picturesque tours with unrestricted views and admirable sites. This is a dream location for beautiful and cultural breakaways.

PONT DE MONTVERT - SUD MONT LOZERE

I’ve spent my life looking for a pure and exhilarating adventure like the travellers of old used to go on. This morning I found myself in a strange, wooded part of Gévaudan…I was disoriented and felt like the first man to set foot here. My wishes...
