What travelers say:

The natural amphitheater is located at the foot of Larzac and Cévennes, in the Vis gorge. It is not only a peculiar geological landscape, but also the best proof of the peaceful coexistence of humans and nature. Due to the protection of the French government, there are rich and diverse landscapes and biodiversity. The steep slopes contrast sharply with the bushes on the plateau. People have been farming here since the Middle Ages, and some terraces are still visible, and there is a small village at the bottom. The four cities that Naivasell straddles cover an area of 1,309 hectares, with a diameter of approximately 2 kilometers and a depth of 300 meters. Looking down from the viewing platform, it is very magnificent, and it seems human is insignificant. Some people also call the place an oyster, and the shape seems a bit similar.

    Pretty

    Cold water but amazing view with a splendid opportunity to cool down after a long hot day. Worth the trip down.

    Totally worth it

    Staying locally so had to visit. Totally worth it and highly recommend. The views - both down from the top and at the bottom looking up - are fantastic. Only downside - "visitor centre" is pathetic ...

    Well Worth The Trip To See This Place

    The river below used to loop around the village at the bottom of the huge and very deep river valley. In time the river straightened up and the ‘loop’ silted up (oxbow lake to those in the know)! The ...

    Breathtaking views of an amazing place.

    We had seen this advertised in many places so visited and were amazing at the way nature had made this phenomenon. A viewpoint with an exhibition and restaurant and then a challenging drive down and b...
