Beauchastel is a village overlooking the confluence of the Rhône and Eyrieux rivers. After passing by the theatre, which hosts concerts and shows throughout the summer, visitors will enjoy a multitude of discoveries as they walk through its narrow streets graced since 1905 by the outsider art of sculpture Alphonse Gurlhie. Nearby, the Dolce Via, reserved for cyclists and walkers, will allow you to discover the Ardèche in a quirky way along a cycling route ideal for a family outing which will take you from one bank of the river to the other. As for the ViaRhôna, it provides tourists on two wheels a variety of panoramas through the emblematic landscapes of vineyards, ruins of castles, fields of lavender or olive trees, and offers delicious breaks to sample local culinary specialities. As a host to the Critérium du Dauphiné, Beauchastel confirms its commitment to cycling, following the passage of Paris-Nice and the regular visits made by the women’s race TCFIA (Tour cycliste féminin international de l'Ardèche).
