The gite has all you need and the outside space, which catches the afternoon / evening sun, is a pleasure. Good location for the Ardeche and the cave paintings at Pont d'Arc, but local vicinity also well worth exploring.

We had a lovely week here looked after by Eric and Julienne, excellent hosts who kept a very low profile and were always there if we needed anything. Would recommend to friends and family.

                                                                                                      5 of 5
                                                                                                      This is a stunning modern, very spacious house on the edge of the village. Plenty of space for 12. The 5 bedrooms are all very good size with modern comfortable beds, the kitchen is very modern with a large american style fridge/freezer but would benefit from more utensiles etc, it may pay to take your favourite cooking equipment! It has a huge lounge/diner which we hardly used due to the good weather. Plenty of built in storage throughout. The garage is big enough to park 4 cars out of the sun! The view is good, it is not overlooked and the terrace faces the sun most of the day. The pool is nice but should be bigger for the property. Chambonas is a nice quiet village but there are no shops or bars, no bakery so it's a short car journey to Les Vans - there is one local restaurant beside the river within easy walking distance. There is some good waliking country around with clearly marked paths, you will need a map though! Les Vans is a very nice market town with many shops and restaurants, a Saturday market and a mid week evening craft market. A choice of small supermarkets and bakers. We did not need to shop anywhere else. It is all about 35 minutes from the Ardeche Gorge and the more touristy areas. Generally excellent though Cyril actually spoke very little English and beware of the cleaning, you can do it yourself otherwise it is 100 euro - but not bad for the size of property.
