Take the direction of Mont Aigoual (D999) then at about 3km, turn left and follow the D190 to Arphy via Aulas.
The valley follows the river Coudoulous which is used to irrigate crops, especially apple orchards. The Reinette du Vigan apple is a variety that has been locally renowned for centuries; it can be found all year round in the form of fruit juice, to be consumed well chilled.
Continue on the D190, reach the D48 (known as the route de la montagne) and turn right.
You will overlook the valley you have crossed.
When you reach Aulas, turn left and at the next crossroads turn left again until you reach Mandagout.
Many chestnut trees are present on this stretch of road; it is also common to encounter small herds of goats.
On leaving the village, turn right (D329) towards Navous and then l'Arboux.
The road is very narrow but has a lot of charm and allows you to see the sweet onion growing on the terraces, as you approach the hamlets nestling near the stream. Only about fifteen years ago, the fields now cleared were overgrown with vegetation.
Continue to the crossroads with the D999, turn right and enter Le Vigan.
