Why come to the Gîte 1000 pailles ? >

Self-built houses with a positive energy balance

By coming to the Gîte 1000 pailles, you support the manual work of its founders. The lodge, the cabin and the main house were self-built from natural materials.

What to do around this gite in the Gorges of Ardèche ? >

Explore the exceptional natural sites

By staying at the Gîte 1000 pailles, you are at the gateway to the Ardèche Gorges Nature Reserve. An exceptional natural heritage, only an IGN map and the advice of your hosts will be enough to explore it. So put on your shoes and go for a hike along the rocky walls of the Gorges. Breathtaking panoramas in perspective.

Don’t miss the visit of the Pont d’Arc, this mythical natural arch of the region accessible on foot from the lodging. 60 meters wide and crossed by the Ardèche river, it is worth the detour! Get up early to enjoy this natural wonder in the quiet.

For white water enthusiasts, the Ardèche Gorges can also be explored by canoeing. From Vallon-Pont-d’Arc, leave for half a day, a day or even 2 days with bivouac and paddle down the Gorges.

Dive into the rich history of the Ardèche

Nature is not the only beautiful surprise that awaits you at the gates of this lodging in the Gorges de l’Ardèche. You can also explore the Chauvet cave, which dates back to the Paleolithic era. The original cave is protected, but a perfect replica is located only 3 km from the original and will immerse you in prehistoric art.

Finally, don’t miss Labastide-de-Virac, the village in which the ecogîte is located. You will love to stroll through the small streets of its charming medieval center and visit the Roure castle, a 600 year old fortress that sits proudly on a rocky spur. Dive into the past, enjoy the beautiful views of the Gorges before discovering the unique know-how of the region: the breeding of silkworms.
