The La Rouviere Campsite can be found at the entrance of the Ardeche Gorges, at the height of the arch bridge that's over the river. They have direct access to the water to go kayaking through the gorges, and organize trips themselves. The owners weren't kind to us and then on top of that they made us pay to rent boats from them also. They said we were getting bill also and never did, and to charge the normal price without clearly explaining why. But the place is nice, we rented a small bungalow for 5 people, 95 euros a night out, has everything going in for picnics, and a table outside with a barbecue to prepare a roast. The campsite has a small shop, which was almost empty because it was early in the season, at least make baked bread every morning, and a cafeteria. More land to play basketball, bocce fut. Camping grounds are shaded.
The De Touristes Hotel is a small hotel that can be found in the little village of Vallon Pont d'Arc, which is a great jumping off point for going down to the gorges of Ardeche in Kaya, the area's main attraction.

The river is next door and the hotel helps you organize your trip on the water. It is a simple hotel, housed in an old stone house, the rooms remain cool in summer. Prices around 40 euros the double room, a little more in the summer, there are rooms for families too.

Prices are similar to those of nearby campsites, around 20 euros/night for two people, and between 80 and 100 euros for a 5 person bungalow. There are many places in the shade, and the proximity of the river makes it a cool place to stay in summer. There is a small supermarket next to reception selling commodities, so you don't have to go to the village 5 kilometres away.
