Make a holiday rental property or gite in Ardeche, France your home away from home

Ardeche is a simply beautiful, natural department in the Rhone-Alps, a mountainous region in the southeast of France. Consisting of mountainous foothills and turbulent rivers, Ardeche is both beautiful and perfect for activity and adventure holidays. Taking a rural Ardeche gite can be either a hub of adrenaline fuelled activity or a peaceful, picturesque Ardeche retreat. Each year, hundreds of adventurers descend on Ardeche property rentals hoping to conquer their ambitions of climbing, kayaking, walking or simply enjoying the Ardeche countryside.

Things to do on holiday in Ardeche, France

Ardeche activity and adventure holidays are what have made Ardeche gites such highly regarded holiday properties. Accommodation in the Ardeche countryside gives the tourist an unrivalled opportunity to divulge in a huge range of outdoor activities and adventure. Ardeche is famous for its natural sporting arenas, from the maze of gushing rivers to the shear rock faces and caves which can be found near almost every one of the Ardeche cottages throughout the area, regardless of their exact location.

Climbing in Ardeche is big business. Climbers merge from around the world into Ardeche gites in order to tackle some of the more famous climbs in the area like those around the Pont d’Arc. Due to the different rock types in the area, (including granite, limestone and phonolite), there is climbing in Ardeche suitable for every level of climber, and many guides and climbing schools to help too.

With four main rivers running through this rocky landscape, an Ardeche property also acts as the perfect accommodation for those wishing to take an exhilarating trip through the gorges and canyons of the department. Kayaking and canoeing in Ardeche are hugely popular, and can take many forms, from a tranquil paddle down calm waters to the manic plunges through rapids set deep in gorges. Whatever level of fear you wish to reach in a canoe, Ardeche will be able to oblige!

In order to explore the Ardeche countryside, you certainly do not need to get the adrenaline flowing if you do not want to. Whilst activity and adventure in Ardeche is one option, taking a peaceful, rural Ardeche retreat is an excellent option. The glorious scenery and wholesome gastronomy mean that it is very easy to relax and recharge from Ardeche accommodation, whether it is a small, cosy Ardeche cottage or a luxurious villa in Ardeche’s plains. There are over 6,000km of walking and hiking trails in Ardeche too, as well as bridle paths and cycle routes, making it perfect for mountain bike or horse riding holidays too.

The gite was very clean and tastefully furnished and decorated. The position of the gite couldn't have been better with the stunning view over the gorge from the bedroom and the terrace. We enjoyed our strolls on the footpath near the gite to the village and the river. Tom and Alice were the perfect hosts - very friendly and welcoming, but unobtrusive. We have recommended this gem to our friends. Thank you Tom and Alice for such a wonderful holiday x

It provides all the modern amenities required for a relaxing break. The hosts are very welcoming and keen to make sure you are comfortable and settled in. We were invited to drinks and canapés with the hosts one evening which was very enjoyable. WiFi is provided and the connection is reliable and speed reasonable. The swimming pool is an ideal size for a family, with sun beds provided as well. The spa area is excellent with a steam room and hot tub which you can book for your exclusive use. Use of the spa area is all included in your rental. The amount of security deposit was very high compared to previous places we have stayed. In excess of the value of one weeks rental! Overall we had a very pleasant and enjoyable week. We were made very welcome and would like to return.

The Ardeche is fantastic for beautiful scenery, lots of things to do, good food and peace and quiet. The owners recommended a local gorge for wild swimming and it was sensational - really beautiful and the children had a ball. We also canoed, rented bikes and cycled the Eyrieux valley, went on a steam train, gasped a huge views on rural walks, tried zip wires and climbs over the river at Aquarock, toured Avignon but we kept coming back to the wild swimming. And I managed to read 3 books! A great base for a family holiday. We wished could have stayed for another 2 weeks and crammed even more in! There are a few compromises - if you want fresh bread you need to be willing to drive 20-30 mins each morning (the bakers in Vernoux are definitely better). Shopping needs planning as you don't want to forget anything and have to go back for it! Neighbouring properties are close by so if you are unlucky to get noisy neighbours you will notice (we didn't and found our neighbours to be very friendly). The gardens do overlook each other, but again this was not a problem for us.
