Château de Malérargues is in the country, quite isolated (nearest village with shops is Lasalle, 6km West.) Obviously it is best to come by car (see car rentals below) - but with a minimum of coordination all problems get sorted out easily. One can also rent bicycles (minimum fitness required since it is fairly hilly - usually 30€ per week.) Great walks too!

CAR

Malérargues is on the local road between Anduze and Lasalle. From Paris you can come down 2 ways:

  1. the main motorway via Lyon, exit at Bollène, via Alès to Anduze (8 hours - very very intense driving), or alternative (we advice it):
  2. the central motorway via Clermont Ferrand (9 hours, beautiful and leisurely - except last 2 hours mountain roads via Marvéjols, Florac, Saint Jean du Gard to Malérargues.)
