Just 15 kilometres separate Ruoms and the Hotel Les Cèdres in Joyeuse. That means there’s no excuse to miss this beautiful medieval town, built during the 10th century around a Clunisienne abbey at the junction of three waterways. You’ll love discovering the historic centre of this village of little more than 2000 inhabitants and admire the old fortifications, notably the seven watch towers standing confidently around the gates of the town.The town is very dynamic, and if you love shopping of any kind, you’ll love its numerous shops as well as Néovinum, merchants of Ardèche wine, where you can discover the seven winemaking areas of the Southern Ardèche and its numerous wines.
Since 2008, Ruoms has also been the lively and bewitching setting for the Ardèche Aluna Festival. Every year on the 3rd weekend of June, up to 70,000 lovers of pop and rock appear to attend unique concerts from big national and international names. The 10th festival in 2017 welcomed the likes of Julien Doré, Matmata, M. Pokora, Claudio Capeo and the Vieilles Canailles. Just 20 minutes from Ruoms, the hotel is the perfect place to stay at during the festival.
