Gorges Ardeche or wine

Gorges Ardeche or wine shops seemingly every few metres – perfect for a wine tasting. It is simply the best place to source true and original tasting, top quality wines along the southern Rhône River. Visiting the winding lanes, medieval tower and Place de la Fontaine with its outdoor cafés and restaurants is equally sublime. Gorges de l’Ardeche Don’t miss the scenic Gorges of the Ardèche, a visual feast of winding gorges and the snaking Ardeche river, a tributary of the Rhône. Zigzagging for 29 kilometres and peppered with scenic twists and turns as you drive along the canyon’s rim you'll feel compelled to stop for the jaw-droppingly spectacular views of the limestone Gorges at every corner. If you’re feeling energetic, take to the waters and canoe beneath the impressive natural stone bridge Pont d’Arc for close-up views. Wherever you decide to drive along this enchanting route, take your time, savour the views, sip the wine and simply enjoy the spectacular journey… 40 | The Good Life France The Good Life France | 41
