We really enjoyed our stay at this property. The house is located on one side of a valley, giving stunning views. The house is modern, spacious and clean, the pool is great (although not heated) but the stand out for us was the lovely garden. You can sit in sun, or in tree covered shady areas while soaking up the views. If it all gets too much, then swing in a hammock, BBQ, eat and drink under the Verandah (which gets the late afternoon/early evening sun). One highlight of our stay was a late night rescue of a young Hare that we heard splashing around in the pool! The Ardeche region has great driving roads, so if you have a motorbike or a sports car, be sure to bring it with you! Lamastre was a bit quiet (off season) but had a good local Supermarket. Tournon-sur-Rhone was an excellent place to go for eating out and only a half hour drive away. We hired Bikes and cycled on Le Dolce Via (old railway line) from Le Cheylard to Nonieres, which is a gentle uphill 8km ride. We also enjoyed the Train de l' Ardeche "Gorges" route, on open carriages behind a steam train. The owner was very helpful, and was quickly on hand to help with anything we didn't understand, even helping us to choose a good restaurant for our final night. Thoroughly recommended!
The property is set in a very beautiful and quiet area of the Ardeche.
The property has all the facilities required for a family holiday. The owner supplied fresh vegetables from the garden. Fresh bread can be ordered from the cafe at the bottom of the lane. There are no other shops within the village but a supermarket is only five miles away.
As previously mentioned by another traveller the wooden flooring upstairs is very, very noisy. |t is impossible to remain asleep whilst other family members are moving around. This would make stays with very young children difficult.
The 'private' courtyard garden is not private. The garden is overseen by the owner and their neighbour. This was not problematic but is worth noting.
Beware of the 'optional' cleaning charge.
