‘Ardèche verte’ will seduce the tourists looking for authenticity and the picturesque, citizens who like the open air, bikers and walkers keen of genuine nature, or else the gourmets fond of quality.
Iserand is situated at 5 km away from the mouth of the Doux, a branch of the Rhône which name means soft, as the climate of the ‘Ardèche Verte’, and which explains this name.
The ‘Green Ardèche’ enjoys a Mediterranean climate, cooled by an oceanic influence coming from Auvergne. The climatic protection brought by Vercors (pre-Alps) on east-side and Massif Central on west-side, allows the flourishing of the great wine terroir “Côtes du Rhône”. Iserand campsite is placed in the middle of a famous part of it called “Saint-Joseph AOC“.
It is 300 m away from the Rhône, which pools are awarded “Zone Naturelle d’Intérêt Ecologique pour la Faune & la Flore” (Natural Zone for Ecologic and Wild Life Interest).
This grandiose scenery is crossed by the “ViaRhona” cycle route, of which an access can be found at 100 m from the campsite ! This bucolic itinerary reserved for pedestrians and cyclists roams along the Rhône Valley and links the Lake of Geneva to Camargue.
