Castle/Château d’Allègre – in the heart of history !

chateau d'Allègre Cévennes

As part of a beautiful walk with family, friends or alone, we invite you to discover the Château d’Allègre which is located in Allègre-les-Fumades. This monument whose date of construction is still unknown, but which we know is at least over 850 years old and one of the emblematic monuments in the history of our beautiful Gard region.

The start of the walk is accessible just five minutes from the Domaine and offers you on arriving at the belvedere, a complete panorama, which extends from Mont Bouquet to the peaks of the Monts d’Ardèche including the Pic Saint-Loup, the Aigoual, the Gard Cévennes, Mont Lozère, the Gardon plain and the Cèze.

As you feel it, you can continue your beautiful walk and discover the Chapelle St Saturnin located about 30 minutes of additional walk. During your getaway, you may have the chance to come across the legendary goat who has been living alone between the castle and the chapel for a few years already!

By organizing a medieval festival every year which takes place at the Château itself every 3rd Saturday of July, the Association for the Protection of the Château d’Allègre brings these vestiges of time back to life. Other local heritage protection associations will be present, such as the Castellas de Bouquet association or those of the Château de Montalet. A great opportunity to immerse yourself in history in a good festive and warm atmosphere.
