The village of Lagorce in Ardèche
The village of Lagorce is situated on top of a rocky spur. From its flowery alleys or during its local producers’ markets, a gentle atmosphere and a real joie de vivre emerge. As you wander through the old village, you will have plenty of time to admire buildings that are hundreds of years old: stone arcades, vaulted passageways, a feudal belfry…
