The town of Vans is located at the crossroads of the Cevennes and southern Ardeche where olive trees and chestnut rub shoulders, near the Chassezac gorges. It is a welcoming city and very alive where it is good to stroll through the alleys and go to the discovery of its history... Straddling the Cevennes National Park and the Regional Natural Park of the Monts d'Ardèche, the city is ideally located for lovers of wide open spaces and nature.
