This is a classic gem. below Mont-Gerbier-des- Jones, the source of the river Loire we arrived at Vogue squeezed between the foot of a cliff and a loop in the river. Village and chateau have been built out of the same golden limestone and this coupled with the round Roman tiles that cover the roofs give a distinctly southern look to the village.
We love the region of the Ardeche for it holds a surprising amount of fortified hilltopvillages like the nearby feudal village of Rochecolombe.
In Vogue, only vestiges of the fortifications remain, the concern for defence becomes evident in the way the tall narrow houses have been built in relation to each other. its a treat to walk through the maze of streets and the complex series of vaulted passageways.
