B&B de charme in the Cevennes

Castagnols is a small well protected and isolated village, located at 790m altitude in the protection area of the "the Cevennes National Park". In the heart of nature and close to Vialas, between Le Pont de Montvert and Genolhac.

The former restored farmhouse which bears the name of the ancient source of the village which flows on its lands. The farm probably dates from the thirteenth century and well before 1684, the date marked on lintels of the most recent building. The house has a beautiful dining room with a huge fireplace. The massive natural stone walls, the numerous gates, the heavy chestnut beams, the slate roofs and the closed and open terraces all give the farmhouse all its charm and intimate and robust character.

On the farmhouse land of 2,5ha are many faïsses, as they are called locally, once-farmed terraces which offer wide panoramas of the Mont Lozère and the mountains of the Ardèche. You will find quiet places to enjoy solitude and the silence of Castagnols. Some terraces are shaded, others sun-drenched for sunbathing. There is also a terrace devoted to children, with swings, spaces to construct cabins and a place for water-play by the spring.

The Cévennes is an excellent region for hiking and mountain biking. Its landscape is highly varied and breathtakingly beautiful. The landscape is perfect for hiking or mountain biking.

Wherever one cycles, the steepness of the slopes and the hairpin bends compete for the attention demanded by the beauty of the surroundings. You will find little valleys with rushing streams and secret spots, high wide plateaus with rough boulders, deep gorges with coursing water. Hiking can begin literally just in front of our farmhouse, which is situated on the edge of a GR or Grande Randonnée trail. There is no need to use your car at all, although you will find it rewarding to explore the area further by car. There are nearby streams and water courses where you may swim, jump, dive and construct dams. There a number of outdoor sports to be enjoyed, such as canoeing/kayaking, canyoning, rock climbing, mountain biking, horse riding, and hiking with a donkey, as described by Robert Louis Stevenson in his Travels with a Donkey in the Cévennes.
