This is a beautiful place to stay in every respect. Very friendly and helpful owners, lovely little accommodation with everything you are ever likely to need, a wonderful garden and the best pool I have used at any of the places we have stayed before. The accommodation is small but that is in no way a problem as it has so much provided - easy to use kitchen, comofortable little bedroom, air-conditioning, excellent shower and a delightful little terrace right outside the door. Ample car parking available in the garden. The village is very small and has few amenities but does have a fantastic bakery right opposite. Other shops, supermarket etc are a few mins drive away in Barjac or further afield to VAllon or Ruoms or St Ambroix. A truly relaxing, peaceful place to stay surrounded by some of the most wonderful countryside in France.

Situated in a very picturesque countryside, near historical villages and towns, it offers opportunities to explore the magnificent Ardeche and the Rhone Valley for their history - and vineyards. Views of the Alps are absolutely stunning. There were sixteen of us and yet the layout of the House allowed privacy if wanted, the outdoor pool and the dining room providing natural meeting points. It is amazing how an old farmhouse could have been transformed into such an attractive and modern villa and retaining a great deal of the original character. Fully recommended!

The gite is beautiful in every way and the facilities are excellent. We particularly loved the day beds by the pool and the stunning views over the valley. Imme and her family are so welcoming too! If I could suggest any possible improvement it would be ceiling fans in the bedrooms which got a bit hot for us at night. Thank you so much for sharing your piece of paradise with us! Elli & family
