About Lou Valagran

Our peaceful rural retreat in the picturesque Cèze valley, Lou Valagran is a great destination for your Boys’ or Girls’ Brigade group to enjoy on their Ardèche Adventure.

The centre itself is set on the banks of the River Cèze and is surrounded by beautiful vineyards and rolling hills – a stunning setting to inspire your young people as they get ready for a thrilling journey down the river.

Within the grounds, we have a range of adventure activities to try during your stay. From abseiling to zip wire and everything in between, there are lots of ways to bring out the best in young people at Lou Valagran.

Food

Our centres in southern France offer a fantastic range of delicious food choices for you and your group to enjoy. We source fresh, regional produce whenever we can and you’ll always find a cultural flavour to our menus. Our aim is to ensure your group leaves feeling full and happy. If a member of your group has a specific dietary requirement or is particularly choosy about what they eat, we will always prepare something suitable. And if they’d like some more to eat, we can offer alternatives and extra food.

Encouraging healthy eating
You’ll always find a good selection of seasonal fresh fruit and vegetables on offer every day. A range of salads is available at lunch and dinner time and fresh fruit is available at every meal.

A Continental feel
We like to provide a balance by providing food that is familiar but also by giving you an opportunity to try food that has a distinctly French flavour too!

Enjoy your food
We strive to provide quality meals wherever you are eating them – as well as a welcoming and friendly atmosphere. So, whether you are in the surroundings of our clean and pleasant dining rooms or on the banks of a river, enjoy your food with PGL!
