And in bad weather?

While waiting for the sun to return

To be able to see a rainbow, you have to endure the rain first!
Who says you can't enjoy without the sun? Here are some ideas for covered or sheltered activities to do in bad weather between the Gard and the Ardèche. First at Natura Lodge, you can play and read in our common room with its board games and books for adults and children. In the village of Barjac, you will find a library (10 € membership per family, resident or on vacation) and a bookseller < / a> run by a real bookseller. You can also enjoy a cinema screening in a beautiful vaulted room in the Château de Barjac or, a little further in Alès, at the CinéPlanet, an 8-screen multiplex.

The "Escape Games"

In the vicinity of our atypical accommodation between the Gard and the Ardèche, we recommend several escape games that will work the brains, young and old:

  • The South Ardèche Escape Game between Vallon Pont d'Arc and Ruoms
  • Alès Horror Story in the city of Alès, accessible from 12 years old
  • Blue TV Escape Game in Garrons: choose a mission to discover the city of Nîmes

The Carrières de Lumières in Baux-de-Provence

In this magnificent "listed natural site" a permanent show takes place throughout the year. A giant magical projection of slides on the immaculate limestone walls of the high rooms and the pillars of the Val d'Enfer quarries, serving as a three-dimensional screen, and during which the viewer is immersed in a visual and musical universe, whose theme differs every year. Personally, we love the Carrières de Lumières .
