Quiet setting, good location

5 of 5
The old building set under a crumbling chateau has been renovated to the highest standard by the owners who are on hand to welcome you with advice to make the most of the holiday. 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.

Beautiful house fantastic holiday

5 of 5
Absolutely stunning location and house. Photos do not do it justice. 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.

Hate to give this secret away

5 of 5
Our party was a family of 6, with 4 children aged 8-12. After having been met by our landlady at Carrefour to take us to the property, our first observation was that the allready very nice pictures on the homeaway website dont capture the real beauty of this house. A labor of love of the landlady the house has a lovely interior design, made up of a mixture of Indian door frames, matching colored walls and decorations which make the house feel like a family home rather than a holiday rental. It is very roomy with a large living/dining area of about 110 sq m, a ground floor sleeping wing with 3 bedrooms and bathroom and a seperate sleeping area on the 1st floor with its own bathroom. The garden is, although surrounded by other houses, very private, with several different terrasses, a medium size pool with lighting and a pétanque court (boules are under the bbq) which was cleaned once during the rental. The house is located in a remote quiet area with neighbours which do not appreciate late evening noise. Its a 15 min car drive from les Vans centre. The perimeter of the property is not fenced. The quality of the house is a bit in contrast with the driveway leading up to the house which is shared for the first part and is a bit rough. Having said that non of this is visible when in and around the house. The house was clean and well maintained. All appliances were in good working. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and when coming back to the Ardeche would not hesitate to rent the property again.
