Important Notice !

The department is undertaking roadworks from Vallée de Cèze (Pont du Courau) to Méjannes le Clap (RD 167).

The road will be closed during the following periods:

– From 01/07/2024 to 19/07/2024, it will be completely closed, reopening only on weekends.

If you are coming from the south or east (Avignon, Bagnols sur Cèze…), take the D6 (road to Alès) through the charming village of Lussan; it’s just as quick. If you are coming from the north or west, take the road via Barjac and then Saint-Jean de Maruéjols; the drive itself is worth the trip!
