From the Cirque, there are beautiful signposted walks to the Moulins de la Foux.

Cirque de Mourèze

The Cirque de Mourèze is an impressive amphitheatre of jagged rocks. The picturesque village of Mourèze is built into a part of the cirque. In the centre, you can visit the Romanesque church from the 11th century.
The cirque can be reached on foot from the village. The hiking trails with different distances bring you to a viewpoint over the cirque and the village of Mourèze.
Hiking trails are available at the reception.
Cirque de Morèze is easy to combine with a visit to the village of Villeneuvette.


Micropolis is a world of insects that fascinates everyone!
As you wander around, you'll find out all there is to know about insects.
You will enter the wonderful world of the tropical butterfly house, come across insects dressed as twigs or others working in teams and visit a giant ant farm. You will learn that 3 out of 4 animals are insects and that they play an indispensable role in the ecological balance. A fun trip that will also teach you a thing or two.


IIn the immediate vicinity you will find a number of beautiful caves.
The closest at about a quarter of an hour is Grottes de L'Abeil; in the past, cheeses and wines were ripened here. The cave is not super spectacular but definitely worth a visit.
A little further away at the beautiful town of Saint Guilhem le Desert, about 50 minutes by car, you will find grotte de Clamouse; This is a stalactite cave. The cave consists of stalagmites, stalactites, columns, discs and draperies of calcium carbonate. During the tour, you can marvel at various subterranean ''halls''.
Near the town of Ganges, about an hour's drive away, is Grotte de Demoiselles:
The stalactite cave, so called because of Mary with child, who with a little imagination can be seen in the stalactites, consists of several linked large rooms, also called "cathedrals". A small train takes you from the bottom up into the cave, after which you can visit the cave in its entirety via a walking route. The entrance to the cave at the top of the mountain, which was used by the discoverer as a starting point for exploring the cave, is part of the tourist route.
