The Cévennes, land of granite and shale, are located on the southern edge of the Massif Central and on the Mediterranean side, between the sources of the Ardèche and the Hérault. The landscape was completely redesigned by the hand of man who created bancels, faysses, terraces fitted out for the cultivation of vines, mulberry trees and cereals. The habitat sometimes of schist, sometimes of granite, covered with lauzes, is still confused today in the harmonious environment of nature.

The history of Lake Villefort
Its construction began in 1956 and the impoundment took place in 1964, immersing the Bayard valley and forcing around twenty families to leave their homes. When the level of the lake is low, you may be lucky enough to see some submerged remains of a XNUMXth century bridge, which was not destroyed during the impoundment.
