Owner description: Reopening on the 8th of july The de Vogüé castle is part of the National Heritage that cannot be ignored in southern Ardeche. The origins of the castle, birthplace of the de Vogüé family, date back to the end on the 12th century. It still belongs to the de Vogüé family today and is run by the association Vivante Ardeche. Year after year the association has bet on developing an ambitious politics of valuing this historic heritage and programming each year two exhibitions of contemporary artists with high quality original work.

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.
