The famous Loire, whose course runs through France for 1,013 kilometres, has its source in Ardèche, in the commune of Sainte-Eulalie, at the foot of Mount Gerbier de Jonc. Several springs - the geographical spring, the authentic spring and the real spring – converge here to create the famous wild river.
Not to be missed: a climb up Mount Gerbier; phonolitic in origin, it is situated on the watershed between the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea. Accessible on foot after a short but tough climb of thirty minutes, its peak, which reaches 1,551metres in altitude, gives an uninterrupted view over Ardèche, the Rhône Valley, the Cévennes and the Alps!
