The house is lovely, cosy: a real home away from home. I love the mix of traditional French local architecture with the stone building and the wonderful job the owners have done of renovating it to include all of the modern amenities without losing the building's character. The rustic open kitchen and living space is excellent - love the beams and comfy sofas - and you can't really beat views over French countryside on three sides! The bedrooms are cosy and light, with wooden floors and low sloped ceilings. You can hear a bit of traffic noise in the master bedroom at times, but it's mainly during the day so not really an issue - the area is really quiet at night time. The large terrace that adjoins the living space was a huge selling point for us - it's a stunning place to sit and enjoy a meal or just relax, and it gets a fabulous sunset view every night over the vineyards. The owners, Alan & Jane, were really friendly and helpful, along with the huge info pack in the house - there's so much to do in this area! We can highly recommend kayaking down the Ardèche and the market at Les Vans. All in all a fantastic holiday - can't wait to come back next year hopefully!

House is situated very comfortably between two villages. Everything you need you can have within couple of minutes to drive nearby. Also in good position whether you want to drive south towards Nimes or Avignon or move upwards to Lyon not to mention that nearby is very beautiful nature fully packed with mountains and rivers. But special compliments goes to the owners!!! Alan and Jane were absolutely amazing and they deserve the full credit. No matter what the clock was 7 in the morning or 10 in the evening I always got my answers. With very warm regards from Estonia!
