3/ Pont-de-Chervil / Le Cheylard

Le Cheylard: the cradle of industry in the Ardèche

Be prepared for a change of décor! You’re entering the Eyrieux Gorges, a truly enchanting place where La Dolce Via snakes through dense vegetation made even denser by the reflections in the river. Gradually, chestnut trees emerge as a backdrop, adding a touch of authentic Ardèche atmosphere to the charm of the place.

The structures you cross or pass through on your away along La Dolce Via are a reminder of the former railway, the CFD (chemin de fer départemental) – such as the tunnel at Sarny. On arrival at Le Cheylard, the second most important industrial centre of the Ardèche, nestling in the Eyrieux and Dorne Valleys, you have a chance to combine relaxation (two bathing sites near to La Dolce Via: Eyrium water sports centre and Le Chambaud lake) with cultural and scientific visits (Arche des Métiers museum, La Maison du Bijou jewellery museum, Château de la Chèze).
