Make a self catering cottage or holiday rental in Privas, Ardèche, France your home away from home

Privas is the capital of the Ardèche region in the Rhône-Alpes region yet it is just a small town with around 10,000 residents. The rugged landscape and craggy hills run down to the three rivers in the area: the Mezayon, the Ouveze and the Charalon. The town has some interesting buildings and historic landmarks which survived the 17th century siege and consequent destruction of much of the city. The trees which line the streets of Privas are chestnuts and in the autumn there are many festivals and markets celebrating chestnut or "marron" products.

This part of the Ardèche is popular with walkers and hikers. The rivers provide a good location for angling and canoeing. The area is also popular with rock-climbers, especially around Balazuc.
