Situated in the Massif Central, in the heart of the Ardèche mountains, the Tanargue also has the peculiarity of being in the Ardèche Mountains Regional Nature Park, on the watershed between the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea. Nicknamed the Tonnerre (Thunder), this protected massif is home to a great ecological treasure. Its highest point is at Grand Tanargue, at 1,511 metres in altitude. Roaming the Tanargue, you can explore its wild landscape, complete with craggy foothills, high altitude grassland, peat bogs, streams and ancient forests.
To enjoy a beautiful panoramic view of the Tanargue Massif, go to the Meyrand Pass, where there is a marvellous orientation balcony at an altitude of 1,371metres.
A stay in the Tanargue is also an ideal occasion to enjoy outdoor activities like hiking, mountain biking, cycling and climbing.
A winter sports resort, Croix de Bauzon, stretches across the heart of this area, where you can practise alpine skiing, cross-country skiing, snowshoe walking and sledging. There is also a spa resort, Saint-Laurent-les-Bains, which specialises in treating rheumatic disorders as well as promoting general well-being and relaxation at the baths.
