Cevennes mountains trip (8h) _ nr. 2

DISCOVER ANCIENT KNOW HOW – A LIVING LEGACY

First step of our journey is the small town Anduze, the “Gateway to the Cévennes”. There you can admire the traditional pottery, “les vases d’Anduze”. My 2CV then takes you alongside the railway of an authentic steam train that links the towns of Anduze and Saint Jean du Gard across wonderful wild landscapes. I warmly recommend the museum in Saint Jean du Gard, to learn everything about the traditions and ancient trades of the Cévennes valleys.

We can then picnic in the natural surroundings or enjoy regional specialties in a typical country inn.

On our way home, we stop in the beautiful village Mialet and in the “Bambouseraie”, an amazing floral park planted with giant bamboos and a variety of exotic vegetation.

My tours are linked to the cycle of the seasons and the meetings with the producers and craftsmen are according to the availability of my partners.

Accessibility

My tours are accessible to all: children, adults, seniors and people with handicapes*.

I don’t have seat belts in the back of my cars (vintage cars) so if you need a seat belt attachment or other hardware, it will be difficult. Let me know what you need.

*Please use my contact form to send me your needs and expectations. The wheelchair equipment does not fit in a 2CV, but the alternative is possible – with the Estafette (minivan).
