An easy walk in the heart of the countryside along the River Eyrieux, on gently sloping and even terrain with a variety of vegetation, tunnels, viaducts and belvederes.

Starting from the Town Hall, cross the bridge 150 m to your left, and you will reach the station car park, at which point you will be on La Dolce Via.


Les Ollières - Chervil Bridge (14 km). Along the way you’ll find canoe-kayaks, pedal car rides, adventure trails, and old throwing and weaving mills built from stone and recognisable by their tall chimneys.

2 km further along, you pass by a farm, then by the Aquarock (adventure trail).

From here you can see the belvedere to your right, a chestnut wood belvedere overlooking the Eyrieux Valley and offering an exceptional viewpoint.

Just before Saint-Sauveur-de-Montagut, at Le Moulinon, you can stop to enjoy delicious food and artisan ice creams from Ardèche, with nearly 200 classic and unusual flavours.

Chervil Bridge - Le Cheylard (16 km). Here you are in the gorges of the River Eyrieux, where the path winds its way through dense vegetation, with the chestnut trees providing a scenic backdrop!

At Le Cheylard, two bathing spots await you near La Dolce Via, as well as discovery activities like the Arche des métiers, an interactive science centre!
