A Little Gem

Largentiere, is a small fortress village right in the heart of the Cevennes/Ardeche. The town gets it's name from it's silver mining history (no longer in use).
It has little to offer, but it's charm, not particularly a beautiful place, but, full of character.
Make your way across the draw bridge and enter into another world.

The Chateaux

You can walk up to the chateaux if you're feeling energetic, but, beware it isn't open to the public.

    Great that you found such an excellent and friendly campsite. The Ardeche Gorge and Pont d’Arc look really beautiful. No wonder so many people go there.

    Thanks Margaret for having brought back Ardeche and cayaking when you mentioned the arch in Courtney's forum question! It was always a dream of mine and Largentière looks like a perfect base to me :-)

    Lovely little page about this gem of the Rhône-Alpes. I only made it as far as to the Rhône Valley in Switzerland. :-)

    I also love little French towns like this Largentiere. I would enjoy snooping in that little shop. The chestnut ice cream sounds delish.
