The Ardèche

The Gorges de l’Ardèche

Camping Mazet-Plage is a campsite in the Ardèche which enjoys immediate proximity with the largest tourist attraction of the sector: the Gorges de l’Ardèche.

History

The Gorges de l’Ardèche form a real canyon about 30 km long. They were dug by the time and by the waters of the Ardèche, between Vallon Pont d’Arc and Saint Martin d’Ardèche, and draws the border between the Ardeche and the Gard. Today, the site is classified as a nature reserve and largely protected, to preserve its beauty.

The river is formed of superb meanderings, the most famous of which is the famous Pont d’Arc: a natural arch of limestone 60 meters high. It is also one of the favorite spots of kayak enthusiasts, but also photographers. Between the quiet areas, the rapids drive tourists and sportsmen, some on the tourist route along the river and, for the latter, on board their boats.
