Our holiday house Ancienne École
Our holiday house is a small school in the mountains of the Ardeche in the Rhone Alpes, originally built for the children of farming families, who lived far away from civilization. It was built around 1900, with high ceilings and lots of 'tall' windows, which makes it a spacious, light and pleasant home to be in. It is not luxurious, but it is comfortable and nicely furnished. The large garden contains a schoolyard (50m x 20m), which is completely surrounded by an ancient wall, where you can find a small swimming pool, which gets its water from a nearby stream, through a pipe under the ground. There is also a courtyard with a shed where the children can play. Here we keep the garden furniture, our stock of firewood, and a table-tennis table and a swing, among other things.
