Sorroundings in Provence was beautiful. In a radius of 50 km you have everything. We will be back.

The house is correctly equipped and wonderfully located facing the valley. The nice big covered terrasse can be used for eating all meals outside. The garden is nice, and gives the children lots of possibilities for having fun. There are lots of nice places to see for any taste; and going down the Ardeche river by caone or kayak and pass under the amazing Pont d'Arc is a must. We gladly recommend this house!
