Discover the region off the beaten track

South of Cévennes

Swimming in the river

The Cévennes are a privileged destination for lovers of natural swimming in unspoiled places.

The small rivers in the area offer many wild swimming spots that will refresh your whole tribe: unspoiled natural spaces, gours, small pebble or sandy beaches…

You bathe in clear, soft water and enjoy the Mediterranean climate of the south of the Cévennes.
