Beautiful location and a warm welcome

5 of 5
Absolutely wonderful. Comfortable accommodation, extensive and beautiful gardens to relax in total peace, excellent pool, walks in stunning scenery from the front door, and so much to explore in the area. A real welcome that made us completely at home. Very highly recommended.

French home away from home

5 of 5
My husband and I came to stay in the Ardeche in April and picked La Magnanerie as we wanted the joys of the countryside, whilst being able to easily wander into the little towns of Lablachere and Joyeuse for the markets and meals out without always having to drive everywhere. 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!
