Discover the inhabitants of the Cévennes in the exceptional scenery of their protected environment.
Well-placed between the Massif Central and the Mediterranean, the Cévennes are a remarkable tourist destination with a strong local and cultural identity. From the desert-like expanse of the Causses to majestic Mont Lozère, via the Tarn gorge and the Aigoual massif, the scenery is varied and spectacular.
Rural gîtes, gîtes d’étape, hotels, restaurants, chambres d’hôtes, upland guides, tourist venues and more. Here is a list of the various high-quality providers selected by the National Park to help you put together your own ecotourism in the Cévennes.
The “Panda gîte” label is owned by WWF France and is awarded in the Cévennes to establishments located in high-quality natural areas. They must have been built in the traditional style of architecture and impeccably restored. The Panda gîtes network is a model of sustainable tourism in a rural environment.
This association, supported by the National Park, is a network of 80 tourism professionals who have chosen to live and work in the Cévennes. It promotes sustainable tourism to contribute to a coherent management of the area, and to local economic and social development. It implements the European Charter for Sustainable Tourism within tourist establishments.
To implement its sustainable-tourism policy, the Cévennes national Park works in close collaboration with numerous partners on its territory. Whether they are public or private institutions, they are indispensable participants in sustainably developing the Cévennes as a tourist destination.
The National Park is a signatory of the European Charter for Sustainable Tourism in Protected Areas. It has committed itself to a form of tourism that contributes more to the protection and development of natural and cultural heritage.
