We spent there a week, mostly on trips, so we left the gite in the morning and returned in the evening. The place has a nice living room, kitchen and dining room in once. It is a real countryside, so don´t be surprised that there are pidgeons, hens, cows and flies everywhere. We didn´t mind it, we wanted to be in a village, but for some people it could be difficult. The view from the living room is amazing.The village is about 1,5 km down the hill, around the cottage there are 2 other houses and then nothing. It is a quiet place with lovely owners. They are very polite and they don´t speak any English at all, so it is also a challenge! The lady provided us with a lot of home grown vegetables (thank very much) which we barbecued with local sausages every evening. The house is well equipped - washing machine, dishwasher, coffee maker, kettle, toaster, etc. The only thing is stairs. To the house, to the bedrooms and bathroom.
The best places for trips are Tournon sur Rhone (a castle, market), Thaïs cave, a boat trip in Roue Royans, and a velorail - I recommend that..
This home is part of a large converted farm building. It is on the edge of a small village among farmland and vineyards on the valley sides of the Rhone. It was beautifully clean and well equipped.
The bathroom has 2 doors one from each bedroom which means checking that doors are locked and unlocked is necessary. But the shower and bath are very good with lots of hot water.
We did find that there's not much insulation in the house so sound travels easily.
There is a boulangerie in the village for bread and croissants. There are many local walks and good access to the upper Ardeche region.
There is a separate room which has a sofa bed and a bread oven. We did not use this.
The electric radiators were very good and we did also light the wood burner which also worked well.
We really enjoyed our stay and recommend this property for a family holiday.
