Overview

Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cottage in Les Vans - Le Mas du Savel

2 Bedrooms Sleeps 2 adults + 2/3 children. Apartment 1 bathroom. Mountain,rural

Le Savel is a 17th century stone farmhouse with various outbuildings which were used for chestnut-drying and silk-worm rearing, the main activities along with grapes and olives until about fifty years ago. The setting of Le Savel is exceptional. At 350 metres altitude and in absolute tranquillity the property has an uninterrupted panorama to the south of the Chassezac and the hills and mountains beyond its terraced land descending steeply through vines and olive trees, pine-woods and heather to a little stream. There is a swimming pool (11 x 5m) and organic produce generally available - fruit, vegetables and wine. There are two totally self-contained apartments, each with a four-poster bed, terrace, barbecue area and hammock. The one-bedroom apartment now has a comfortable 140 x 190cm sofa-bed in the sitting room. The Bergerie has a second (children's) bedroom. Each has a floor area of approximately 50 m² and a wood-burning stove for winter warmth. Towels and bed linen are provided.

Simply Stunning!

  • 5 out of 5
Our last trip was our fifth visit to Le Savel ... and we think it's simply stunning. Each time we've taken the one-bedroom apartment but this description hardly does it justice - just look at the photos. It's very beautiful, very comfortable and very French!

The situation of the house is outstanding and the views are breath-taking. You can begin the day with a swim in the pool; drive to Les Vans for a paper and croissants; and spend the rest of the day relaxing in the garden; reading in the hammock under an ancient mulberry tree; taking any number of walks from the house; dipping in the pool or in the river; or sightseeing around the Ardeche.

The garden is beautifully shaded - and you will enjoy this in the summer. We've also been to Le Savel out of season, when the mornings are sharp and fresh, you can be the only people at Le Pont d'Arc (!), and you can spend the evening around the wood burning stove.

Les Vans is a pretty old town with welcoming cafes, some good restaurants, easy parking and a bustling market. It is, however, a drive away and while some guests do cycle there, it's a long hard pull back uphill!

Brodie and Diana are perfect hosts and we'd certainly recommend Le Savel to anyone looking for a relaxing holiday, deep in the French countryside. That's why we've been there five times!

Le Savel- ein magischer Ort

  • 5 out of 5
Le Savel-ein magischer Ort...
Typisch Ardeche, etwas Cevennen und ganz französisch. Das graue Gemäuer, schiefergedeckt, birgt Geheimnisse vieler Generationen. Ausgetretene Stufen zeugen von regem Leben, jeder Winkel erzählt Geschichten. Der Garten, üppig und gepflegt, ursprünglich und wild, ist so gegensätzlich wie die Landschaft, die ihn umgibt: tiefe Täler, wilde Schluchten, unbegradigte Flüsse, Stromschnellen, Kastanien- und Pinienwälder, Weinberge und Obstgärten.
Diana und Brodie ist es gelungen, ein Idyll zu schaffen, gewachsene bauliche und landwirtschaftliche Strukturen zu bewahren. Appartement und Ferienhaus sind komfortabel, von Brodie selbst geschaffene Möbel und Dianas geschickte Raumausstattung und Dekoration wirken harmonisch; eine gelungene Mischung aus englischem Landhausstil und provenzialischer Einrichtung.
Der Pool, umgeben von weißem und rosafarbenem Oleander, liegt über den Rebterrassen und bietet einen atemberaubenden Blick über das Tal des Chassezac auf den gegenüberliegenden Bergkamm.
Die Gastgeber, Diana und Brodie, sind überaus liebenswürdig, offen und weltläufig, dem Gast zugewandt und, falls möglich, erfüllen sie jeden Wunsch. Vor allem die Herzlichkeit der beiden erzeugt das Gefühl, Le Savel zu besuchen ist wie nach Hause zu kommen.
Zwei Haikus, von mir verfasst auf unserem Freisitz unter dem Maulbeerbaum mit Blick auf die Felsformation, die Le Savel im Norden begrenzt, können vielleicht eine Ahnung vermitteln von dem Zauber dieses Ortes:

Karge Steinwüste
nebst blühendem Paradies
gezähmte Wildnis

Flirrende Hitze
urgewaltige Winde
Baumkronen zausend

Car: necessary

We are 70 km southwest of Loriol, the auto route du Soleil exit that we normally use. But less busy and more picturesque is the auto route to Bourges and Clermond-Ferrand. Within a southerly arc of about 100 km from Les Vans lie Avignon, Nîmes, Arles and Montpellier. The Sud-Ardèche is the northerly limit of the Mediterranean climate with its olive trees, evergreen oaks and maritime pines. Les Vans is a typically friendly southern town with a lively Saturday market, where during the quieter winter months one is just as likely to hear patois spoken in the bars and cafés as French. They play boules all evenings and nurture family feuds with Mediterranean zeal. We are a twelve minute drive from there.We have an excellent wood-turning centre nearby offering short courses and also,at Le Savel the use of a fully equipped workshop for practice sessions
