Ideal for access to the Southern Ardeche region with many local amenities close at hand. Walking, cycling and water sports (kayaking) on the doorstep with excellent communications to other areas of the Ardeche. Our hosts Katelyne and Eric were most friendly and helpful in providing suggestions and highlights for local places to visit and activities. Would not hesitate in recommending this gite as an ideal base for those wanting to explore the southern region of the Ardeche in depth.

                                                                                                      5 of 5
                                                                                                      It was magnificent, well appointed, clean with excellent walks from the house to the Coupe de Jaujac, the village and the hills opposite. The Little House was lovely with everything we needed and the terrace offered magnificent views across the Lignon valley to the peaks of Ladenne and Courcoussat. I thoroughly recommend this property to anyone wanting a restful (or energetic) holiday in the Ardeche. The village offers a wide range of facilities with two excellent boulangeries - one selling a wide range of 'bio' goods and home made excellent sweet chestnut biscuits. For a long day out aimed at rail enthusiasts (like me) then there is the Vivarais Railway operating from Tournon sur Rhone station - we drove over the hills via Vals les Bains, Mezilhac, Le Cheylard and Lamastre. Wonderful metre gauge railway the surviving part of a once extensive system. We shall definitely plan to stay at the Little House again. Thank you Kim and Claude. Richard & Alison Watts
