Saving money has never been so pleasant and comfortable:
The two-star B&B hotel in Aubenas is perfectly placed, less than a kilometre from the Aubenas bus station. Are you coming by train or by car? The hotel is 38 kilometres from the Montélimar train station and the N102 and the D104 are very nearby- how convenient! There are plenty of sites worth visiting near the hotel, which is only a 5-minute drive from the city centre of Aubenas. Heed the siren call of a visit to Jaujac or Vals-les-Bains, both less than 15 kilometres away.
The city’s strategic location explains why, in the Middle Ages, the territory was the subject of a ferocious battle between the bishops of Puy and those of Viviers. The city, owned by the lords of Montlaur between the 11th and the 15th centuries, later converted to Protestantism. In 1670 Aubenas was shaken by the Roure Revolt, an anti-fiscal revolt.
Treat yourself to a relaxing break as you hike through the Gorges de l'Ardèche nature reserve. This 1500-hectare space is home to an exceptional collection of flora and fauna. Among the must-see natural sites are the Source Intermittente, a geyser that appears at the heart of Vals-les-Bains every six hours, and the Cascade du Ray Pic at more than 1000 metres of altitude. If it’s swimming or hiking you’re looking for, consider a trip to the Pont du Diable: 20 metres above the Ardèche river, this bridge offers a stunning view of breath-taking landscapes.
The Château d'Aubenas, originally a fortified castle, was transformed into an elegant manor house in the 17th and 18th centuries and is now home to a beautiful collection of artwork. Just across the way you can admire the gargoyle house,, visit the Eglise Saint Laurent, which is home to beautiful examples of woodwork, admire the Dôme de Saint Benoît and its Renaissance-style cupola, and more. Long referred to as the “city without water”, Aubenas also has numerous fountains that were built in the 19th century. A recent reconstruction project lets you visit an exact copy of the Grotte Chauvet, which contains cave paintings that date back to 36,000 B.C.!
At the end of May Aubenas hosts the Carrefour Européen du 9ème Art et de l'Image. In October, the nearby town of Antraigues-sur-Volane hosts the Fête de la Châtaigne. This festival includes hiking, games, tastings of local products and other activities. Each November, Aubenas organises Les Rencontres des Cinémas d'Europe, a large festival that brings together directors and actors from all over Europe.
Whether you’re coming for the festivities, the historical monuments or simply for some R&R in Ardèche, opt for a comfortable stay by booking an affordable hotel room with B&B.
