The Pilat Park, its landscapes and terroir
The Pilat Regional Natural Park covers over 700km2 of mid-sized mountains. It spans two départements (French counties), the Loire and the Rhône. Its varied lands, going from vineyards beside the Rhône to high plateaux at an altitude of c.1,000m, offer many hiking and cycling possibilities, including mountain-bike trails. There are also traditional villages and historic sights to visit. A wide range of themed guided tours are organized in the park.
