Located at the foot of the Cévennes, you will be filled with wondered by the beauty of oaks and the diversity of the flora which constitute the famous Bois de Païolive. A multitude of hiking paths will lead you into the depths of the forest so as to discover the limestone sculptures which mark out this genuine natural labyrinth. Do not miss the bear and the lion rising majestically out of the limestone rock!
Its name the Bois des “fados” (Fairies' Forest), perfectly defines the both magical and enigmatic atmosphere, which this forest gives off. We advise you to visit the ledge path which offers a magnificent view of the Gorges du Chassezac (the Chassezac gorges).
