9

Set in an exceptional environment, near to the wild site of the Chassezac Gorges, in the commune of Prévenchères in the Cévennes, the small fortified town of La Garde-Guérin, formerly the domain of the "Parier" knights who protected and guided the travellers following the Régordane road, is now listed among the most beautiful villages of France. A superb and particularly authentic destination, with its picturesque paved side streets that are ideal for a leisurely stroll, its admirable restored old stone houses, imposing medieval keep, and charming little Romanesque church with a bell tower wall. This area is a delight to walk around! A relic of the old castle, the 12th-century watchtower offers magnificent views of the tilestone roofs of La Garde-Guérin and the Chassezac Gorges from its summit...

Around 1 km to the north of the village, be sure to stop by the famous Chassezac belvedere, for dizzying views of the Chassezac granite canyon!
