Hotel l’OrongeSt Jean du Gard
It's at this wonderful 17th century coaching inn that Robert Louis Stevenson ended his voyage through the Cevennes, and it is therefore a fitting point to mark the end of your trek. The hotel has been wonderfully renovated. Bedrooms are very comfortable and are decorated in typically Cevenol style. There is an excellent restaurant, and after your meal, it's well worth exploring this lively town in the southern Cevennes.
The restaurant is deservedly acclaimed and makes excellent use of local produce. There is a well stocked wine cellar too! As well as the main dining room, there is a pleasant covered terrace - ideal for a sunny breakfast
