A week at the Domaine de Briange in July-August 2020
Despite the particular context of this year, we organize ourselves so that, like every summer, our 2020 nature-related activities allow you to discover the landscapes and the inhabitants of our beautiful Ardèche. We will update this page as we go along with information regarding the necessary protection measures.
We are already anticipating your disappointment, but here, we do not offer musical evenings, nor daycare / children’s club. Fortunately, there are so many other things to do! Thus, we organize at least one activity per day, in connection with nature, the discovery of our territory or the local gastronomy.
We plan to maintain the following events.
Calendar of our 2020 nature-related activities
Whether you are in a tent or in one of our accommodations, all these activities are free, sometimes done on registration. The calendar can still be enriched, so do not hesitate to come back to consult it (subject to modifications).
Nature hike at night, or not!

And every day of the summer
The Ardèche canyon by canoe
In partnership with Action Midi Sport, boat rental company. They pick you up and bring you back to the campsite, for a 24 km (one day) canoe trip in the Ardèche gorges. A distance of 8 or 12 km is also possible, starting from the river.
Electric bike rides
There are nice rides to do around our campsite. We don’t have bikes for rent on site, but you can go directly to Face sud at Vallon Pont d’Arc. They are pros, have great equipment and can advise you on some pretty routes.
