Ideal for access to the Southern Ardeche region with many local amenities close at hand. Walking, cycling and water sports (kayaking) on the doorstep with excellent communications to other areas of the Ardeche. Our hosts Katelyne and Eric were most friendly and helpful in providing suggestions and highlights for local places to visit and activities. Would not hesitate in recommending this gite as an ideal base for those wanting to explore the southern region of the Ardeche in depth.

The villa was well designed and spotlessly clean. Perfectly equipped with everything we needed. We asked for a kettle to make our English tea and Malik delivered one straight away. Truly amazing situation, well designed, very private, with the pool, bedrooms and patio all looking over the valley. There was a second private patio excellent for quiet reading. We walked into Les Vans (up hill on the way back) where there are a few really good restaurants and bars. The situation was convenient for visiting beautiful nearby villages of character by car, for various markets and walks. We also drove east and canoed along the ardeche. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property.
