  Cirque de Navacelles

I'd like to buy a house here one day, it is such a beautiful region. Can be a bit isolated without a car though.
The main 'sight' to see is a natural phenomenon called the 'Cirque de Navacelles'. This is a small village (Navacelle) on a calcium based (calcaire? not sure on the translation of that) rocky outcrop at the bottom of a gorge. It was at one time encircled by a river which has since dried up, leaving this incredible natural phenomenon.

Address: Cevennes, near Ganges
othercontact: website is in French
