Make a self catering cottage or holiday rental in Privas, Ardèche, France your home away from home

Privas is the capital of the Ardèche region in the Rhône-Alpes region yet it is just a small town with around 10,000 residents. The rugged landscape and craggy hills run down to the three rivers in the area: the Mezayon, the Ouveze and the Charalon. The town has some interesting buildings and historic landmarks which survived the 17th century siege and consequent destruction of much of the city. The trees which line the streets of Privas are chestnuts and in the autumn there are many festivals and markets celebrating chestnut or "marron" products.

I think we were the first tenants as all the linen and towels were brand new. This was a very last minute booking due to being let down by another owner (not from this website) and the owners did everything they could to ensure the property was ready for our stay. Though there were a few things that can be improved on, I.e. fans for the bedrooms as it gets very hot, a bread knife and other little bits and pieces for the kitchen, once the property is completely finished and the owners get used to renting it out this will be a 100% 5* property. It is also located overlooking the gorge and the village which is a 5-10 minute walk away (depends on how slowly you walk) whitch has a fantastic boulangerie/pattiserie, supermarket and a couple of restaurants. A big thank you to the owners for renting to us at such short notice (the same day) highly recommended .

The appartment is absolutly clean and beautifully furnished, the kitchen offering everything you need, but we were not often inside, as the pool, the garden, the river, the hammocks and the tree house (for the children) were also such lovely places to spend your time. We also enjoyed going on walks or even little bike tours, Vinny and Geoff had provided us with lots of material to choose from. Finally we were really glad that Privas is not overcrowded by tourists, not even in the middle of August. So immediately feeling at home helped us to enjoy our stay from the very first day on. We really had a wonderful time.

The property is charming, the owners are friendly and helpful plus they do a morning run to the bakers. The gardens are large and adjacent river and surroundings are lovely. The facilities are great, our children had a ball using the kayak and paddle board provided on the river, as well as playing boule, badminton, slack lining and in obviously splashing about in the pool. You didn't need to go anywhere, but there is a lot to do in the area if you have car. We would love to go back.
