The village of Le Pompidou stands in the heart of the Cevennes, at the altitude of 800m, right on the mythic route the Corniche of Cevennes.
Le Pompidou, one of the rare villages traversed by the Corniche of the Cevennes.
The village of Le Pompidou stands midway between Florac and Saint Jean du Gard, between the valleys of shale and the high plains of limestone. This makes the local historical architecture rather unique; the walls are often made out of limestone and the roofs are covered with dark shale tiles.
