THE INTERMUNICIPAL TOURIST OFFICE OBTAINS ITS CLASSIFICATION IN CATEGORY II - PREFECTORAL DECREE OF 26 JUNE 2019 (08/27/2019)
Like the accommodation, the tourist offices can also be classified. If the former are in stars, the latter are divided into categories: I (the highest) and then II and III.
The decision to classify depends on the validation of the many imposed criteria. These are divided into two main themes:
obligations relating to the reception of visitors, including in particular: the reception facilities (Lamastre and Désaignes), their accessibility; updated information, available, particularly on the Internet, in two languages in addition to French.
internal organisation obligations, in particular: sufficient, qualified and experienced staff; organisation of information management: Apidae database; relations and services to service providers.
The objective of sustainable development is also taken into account.
The achievement of this classification is the result of the work carried out for many years by the team of the Intercommunal Tourism Office. It is also a recognition of the professionalism of the staff.
Since this ranking has been obtained for 5 years, the team thus recognized will continue its actions in order to maintain its commitment to the tourist and economic service providers of our territory and to the visitors and tourists we welcome.

Christmas is coming! (11/16/18)
The holiday season is approaching and we no longer know how to treat our loved ones!
Here are three essential ideas to find something to please everyone:
- Christmas market, the essential place for original gifts!
- From chocolate candies to pastries, Molès pastry store knows how to seduce your palate!
- Ardèche candied chestnuts, the favorite guaranteed for these sweet golden candies!
Even if some of them have already left the branch, most of them still gild themselves with the pill in the sun! Our pretty chestnuts are well protected in their bugs to grow bigger before emancipating themselves. Even if some of them start falling into our slopes, none of them are orphans, do not take them away from their owner!
