- "Plateau des Coirons" to the south-east is formed by Miocene basaltic flows overlying jurassic and cretaceous sediments
- "Cévennes" to the south-west are mountains composed of micaschists with many granitic intrusions.
- "Plateau des Gras" to the south is a large plateau formed by jurassic and cretaceous limestones. It is cut by the famous Ardèche canyon.
