No matter what aspect of France holds greatest appeal to you, you'll find it in Central France.
When ready for adventure, history and natural beauty, visit the towns and villas in the Ardeche region. The river is great for whitewater rafting or less aggressive pursuits like canoe-based sightseeing, or follow any of the numerous trails for a closer view of nature. While farming is prevalent, the Ardeche gorge provides breathtaking landscapes, and prehistoric writings have been found in the region's caves.
In the Drome region, you'll find a distinctly Mediterranean feel amongst the olive groves and vineyards, while the castles and villages that dot the area cast a medieval spell over the area. There's shopping, too: visit Montelimar to experience a market town full of artisans and merchants.
The highlands of Massif Central offer water, plains, resorts, craters and caves, and some of the finest walking trails of the country within the National Park. The volcanic rock of the region colors—literally—the architecture of the area as the black stone abundant in the area was used in building the villages.
See the extensive portfolio of cottages and apartments which are available in every section of Central France, and camping offers a back to nature appeal.
