The route begins in the Medieval town Alba-la-Romaine. It runs southwards to the famous bridge Pont d'Arc. The D290 the follows the spectaculair Gorges de l'Ardeche. The curves in this road even have names! The route then goes north across the Plateau de Gras over nice small roads to Saint-Montan (another Medieval town). The last section runs along the river the Rhone and ends at chateau Rochemaure.
The route is not very long to give you time to visit the towns and/or avens (e.g. Aven Marzal and Grotte de la Madeleine). There is also a nice beach where you can swim at Pont d'Arc.
The route starts and ends at Domaine de l'Amiral zonnig.com Which is a great chambre d'hote (bed & breakfast) and camping.
