Lots of books about Chauvet cave and lots of maps of the area. Very clean and well equipped. Warm welcome from Pascale. Would stay again.

It is the perfect location to relax but there are many charming places to visit nearby. The beautifully maintained pool and gardens are one of the highlights of the location. I doubt it will be our last visit.

We stayed in the upstairs apartment, we were surprised with the size of the property, really comfortable. Vallon an excellent base for the area, lots of things to do for all the family. The gorges are amazing a must to visit, lots of places to hire kayaks locally. Great bars and places to eat within minuets walk from the house. Cycling great from the door. Housekeeper Corrine was lovely, we would love to return again..
