Beneath Mont Lozère The Cévennes - the secret hills of the south

Unspoiled and largely undiscovered, the Cévennes National Park (granted UNESCO World Heritage status in June 2011) is a land of rugged mountains coated in heather, gorse and open grassland that turns golden in the sun, while the slopes of the deep valleys below are cloaked with majestic chestnut woods. The region seems scarcely to have been touched by the march of time; ancient ways continue and historic buildings are preserved.

Accommodation:

Auberge la Régordane- The attentive Nogier brothers' attractive hotel has been carefully converted from one of the village houses, and retains its medieval atmosphere – some of the rooms are accessed via the spiral stone staircase. In warm weather, dinner is served in the cobbled courtyard.

Le Merlet- This guesthouse, run by Philippe Galzin and his daughter Perrine, has been converted from a remote working farm and has won various ecological awards. Each evening guests enjoy a set menu together around a large oak table while Philippe entertains everyone with anecdotes about country life.

Le Temps des Cérises- Beautifully converted from a late 19th-century manor house on the edge of the village, this charming guesthouse has just five bedrooms. The top floor has a sitting area and library that opens onto a large roof-top terrace set with sun loungers. Below, in the large gardens, is an outdoor pool.

What our customers say:

Mrs Y Millar of Peebles
I have never seen so many butterflies of such different sizes and colours. They lifted up and flew alongside you as you walked. The 3 longer walks were superb, beautiful scenery and full of variety.The meals in the evening were a great reward for a hot days walking.So glad we were advised to have 3 nights at Le Mas Nouveau as it is a wonderful place.

N.Sarkies of Cambridge
We have been on many Inntravel holidays and this was one of the best. The walks were perfectly planned, with plenty of less strenuous alternatives on 'rest' days and enough challenge to make us feel we had deserved our delicious dinners every day. And what dinners! Interesting and sustainable menus with stimulating company and long evenings in beautiful surroundings. Highly recommended!

Mr Kinnear of London
This was one of our best holidays ever. We loved the range of accommodation, the high standard of food, the breath-taking scenery and the solitude on our walks. We could not recommend this holiday highly enough.
