Why come to Vogüé?

We’re here in the south Ardèche, just 20 mins from the Gorges de l’Ardèche. Vogüé is a village in Ardèche that’s both typical and unusual for the region. Nestled between the cliffs and the Ardèche river, overlooked by the castle and hanging gardens with a network of cobbled streets, arcades and medieval houses, bathed in almost-Mediterranean sunlight, Vogüé is an invitation to take it easy and enjoy the relaxed way of life.

Vogüé is classified as a French “Village de Caractère” (character village) and one of the “Plus beaux villages de France” (most beautiful villages in France). It’s also where our Oasis des Garrigues campsite is waiting to welcome you. As well as the leisure facilities at the campsite, there’s the river and beaches just 200 metres away, the “Via Ardèche” safe green route less than 700 metres away, outdoor activities, walks, cycling and canoeing. Whether you take to the air or the water, or even venture underground, there’s something for you.
