Le Ranc Davaine
St Alban, Ardèche and AuvergneSite code: MC013
The Ardêche is the perfect setting for a wide range of outdoor activities, including many natural cliffs to tempt climbers. This ruggedly beautiful region has been shaped by the mighty Ardêche river, which has created narrow gorges as well as forming the colossal Ardêche canyon. The Grotte des Branches cave on the banks of the river is definitely worth a climb and offers shade all day to make summer climbing here even more of a pleasure. You’ll also find that the Ardêche river and streams, which are at the base of many climbs, provide the ideal place to take a dip and cool off, giving those tired muscles a welcome treat at the end of a challenging climb.
