An Ardèche village

The village of Antraigues is part of the Monts d’Ardèche regional nature park, created in 1992 to preserve the region’s most beautiful landscapes. The commune is surrounded by a vast forest made up largely of chestnut trees.
It was in the village of Antraigues that Jean Ferrat wrote his famous song “La montagne”, and not for nothing: a year earlier, the singer had already fallen in love with this little Ardèche village during a trip, and had settled there for good. You’ll never leave Antraigues-sur-Volane indifferent!
