A fantastic villa/gite, stylish, attractive with a lot of wow factor, extremely well situated outside of Labeaume (and small town of Ruoms) in a quiet area, within 5 mins of village, town, attractions, lots of restaurants + shops/supermarket. Private setting, brilliant views, great pool and surround for lounging, great balcony and excellent and unusual layout. Helpful owners and just about every amenity you could want. There were, however one or two little things that detracted from perfection. I feel I may be nit-picking, but - no linen, towels, sheets, not even drying up cloths, despite emailing to ask.These were then swiftly provided (less tea towels- which we bought!). There was no washing up liquid, no plate cleaners & no WC paper. Also, the villa is not all that new and is just beginning to show signs of age with one or two things a bit worn. Overall though, such a great layout, superb setting, pool and views, that the very small problems barely detracted from a thoroughly enjoyable time.
We have visited France many times but it was our first visit to the Ardeche. We deliberated over many properties. A quiet location, 2 bedrooms and air conditioning were important. This property ticked all the boxes.
My French is ok but not great & the owner speaks no English but we managed to book using the wonders of google translate!
The observations we would make about the property were that it was a bit tricky to find (or maybe it was just us) Some directions & some clear signing on the property would have made things easier.
Although well equipped, there was no kettle at the property. We had a travel one anyway so that was ok.
The property was clean & comfortable but if you aren't french bear in mind that there is no DVD player & only french TV. We didn't come on holiday to watch TV so we didn't mind but if the weather was bad...
All in all I thought that the property was really good & I would return. It was just a 5 minute walk to the nearest river beach & was a 35 minute walk to Ruoms which was a charming little town with some nice restaurants. Ruoms was also a good base for kayaking
