Ruoms: in the footsteps of a mediaeval village

Head for the Ardèche during your holiday in the Rhône-Alpes region!

Energetic visitors will also love spending their holidays here, where they'll be able to travel down the gorges of the Ardèche by canoe and explore the amazing landscapes, with a spot of climbing or canyoning. And if you like caving, then you should visit the Chauvet Cave or l’Aven d’Orgnac, where you'll find an amazing underground world. Nature lovers, meanwhile, will be able to go hiking in the woods of Païolive, see the famous natural bridge just 5km from the town of Vallon-Pont-d’Arc and marvel at the Ray-Pic waterfall! The Ardèche is also home to some really unusual villages, so why not stop off at Labeaume while you're here on holiday? This little mediaeval village is home to all sorts of rustic homes built using pebbles, as well as more than 140 dolmens set all around the village. History fans will be in heaven! Whether you're feeling energetic or you're more inclined towards some relaxation, there'll be something for everyone here!
