Taste and quality describe the restoration and furnishings of these airy, light-filled three rooms. Immediate and abundant hot water. Excellent queen sized bed, cozy bedding and pillows, thick and ample towels, the best lighted make-up and shaving mirrors we've come across in a rental, quality cookware and dinnerware, easy-to-use kitchen appliances, including a microwave that you don't have to be a rocket scientist to operate. A surprising stock of kitchen staples fill out one's needs to put a simple meal on the table. We were delighted to find a fresh baguette on the kitchen counter and a lovely bottle of Ardeche white wine, a favorite of ours, cooling in the fridge. Anna was available to provide help or guidance at all times. She could not have been more gracious or generous, nor could the apartment have been more delightful. It is located on a major "place", close to fresh produce, bakery, butcher/charcuterie, cheese shop, wine shop, ice cream parlor and WiFi tea shop, and ATM. The apartment, by the way, has excellent WiFi connectivity. It has a street view as well as a sweeping vista that, on a very clear day, one can see into the Lozere department. We have visited Barjac, sometimes several times a year, for some 15 years. This stunning apartment, new to us, is in a perfect location for enjoying this charming and vibrant village. We are , even now, planning to return. A full 5 stars+ to Anna Brown and this property.

Although there wasn't designated parking spaces, we nearly always managed to get a space (or 2) outside the house. All rooms were beautifully furnished and well equipped (including towels) I particularly loved our chandelier (one of many in the house) in our twin sink, walk-in shower and bath en-suite. There were also a couple of large balconies overlooking a gorgeous courtyard with tables, chairs, sun loungers and gas barbeque. We have stayed in various places in The Ardeche region over the past years and this was perfect for our mixed aged family with children ranging from 13 to 24, as we could all come and go to the bars, restaurants and shops to suit without anyone driving. And with a delicious boulangerie for our daily fresh bread and pan au chocolats a few seconds walk away, what more could you ask for in a town property? We all appreciate good food, so it was great that all the restaurants we ate in were delicious and a fair price. Great communication with the owner before and during too - thank you Laetitia for an amazing stay.
