Cevennes

The Cevennes

he Cévennes is an emblematic geographical area in the south of the Massif Central. Straddling the departments of Gard and Lozère, they are characterised by schistose soil (particularly in the chestnut area), granitic soil (in the Mont Lozère and Mont Aigoual massifs) and limestone soil in the lower and southern parts. The Cévennes have a climate of contrasts: Mediterranean then becoming mountainous as you get closer to the summits. They are characterised by very heavy rainfall in spring and autumn, known as 'Cévennes episodes'.

The landscapes are spectacular with a nature that has remained very wild. Man has settled here using his ingenuity to "tame" the relief by cultivating on terraces, building a solid habitat, creating paths (drains) ... It is also a land steeped in history and resistance through the insurrection of the Camisards or the fierce struggle of the maquisards.

In the Cévennes you can go hiking, mountain biking, horse riding and in winter, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing or cross-country skiing.
