While staying at the hotel Le Ponant, you can discover the cultural and historical past of the city of Pradelles and admire its architecture:

Dominating the valley of the Haut Allier, this ancient stronghold linking the Auvergne to the Languedoc was a very important stopover for trade to the south and for pilgrims coming from Puy en Velay on their way to Saint Gilles.

Witnesses of this period, the noble residences with arcades and high stone facades stand against the Cevennes gusts.

They have seen generations of travellers pass through, some of them famous, like the Scottish writer

Robert Louis Stevenson, who gave his name to this route which has become the GR 70.
