HOLIDAY INFORMATION

This short break option includes the two-day GUIDED river trip with overnight camp through the spectacular Ardeche gorge and includes an additional 1-5 nights accommodation at our 3* HOTEL (see ‘The Hotel’ tab for details).

The river trip covers the full 32km of the Gorges de l’Ardeche from Vallon Pont d’Arc to Saint Martin d’Ardeche. It consists of two days of paddling with an overnight camp in the gorge (bivouac). This helps to divide the river trip into more equal and slightly less strenuous days (16km & 16km) which also gives us time to have lunch by the river, go for a swim, jump from rocks, explore hidden caves or just relax and enjoying your surroundings.

Camping equipment for the overnight bivouac camp (as part of the river trip) is included.

Most guided river trips are on Mon/Tues and Thurs/Fri each week with a couple of Sat/Sun options in April. You can confirm availability and the days the river trip will run by looking at the Guided river trip option. If you require different dates for the river trip please use the link below to send us your bespoke request.

2 – 6 night option
Available April – September
Suitable for all abilities
The minimum age for this option is 7 yrs old and everyone must be able to swim 25m

For group of over 8 people or if you would like to create a bespoke booking, please contact us with your requirements

Your Itinerary

The itinerary for the Gorge Getaway option will vary depending on your dates selected and the number of nights you decide to stay.

If you select to arrive before the river trip (eg arrive on Wednesday with the river trip on Thurs/Fri) then you will go directly to the reception of the hotel where they will have your booking ready and will show you your room/s. A senior member of staff (usually the same person will also be your river guide) will meet you at the hotel to ensure you are happy with the arrangements and are ready for your river trip. If you only add nights at the hotel after the river trip then we will meet you directly at the river trip start location at 10:30am.

You can check in at the hotel anytime between 3pm and 8pm on your arrival day and will need to check out by 10:30am on the morning of your departure.

You have the option to book your room only or include breakfast with your booking.

The Hotel

The hotel is situated directly opposite the famous Pont d’Arc but set back just far enough (300m) to provide seclusion and tranquillity away from this popular tourist destination. There is also access for hotel residents onto the pebble beach directly opposite the hotel as well as the new swimming pool, refurbished rooms, and extended sun terrace.

There is a large car park next to the hotel for guests and it is recommended that you have some transport to best experience the whole area in your free time. However, local taxi’s are available. All rooms are en-suite with telephone and tv facilities. Internet access can also be achieved from the hotel with free wi-fi access.

Situated only 6km along the gorge road from the town of Vallon-Pont-d’Arc, the hotel is a popular destination for the French tourists who prefer the tranquillity away from the hustle and bustle. A great opportunity to really experience this magical and welcoming part of France nestled right on the edge of the nature reserve.

Option to include breakfast or book room only
Double, Twin and Family/Group rooms (suitable for 3 or 4 people) are available
Check-in between 3pm – 8pm / Check-out before 10:30am
