About Christine Ashcroft

I am French, from Paris, now living in the UK. Le Bourg has been in my family since 1615.

Christine Ashcroft purchased this house in 1615

Why Christine Ashcroft chose Bourg-Saint-Andéol

New to rent, but an ancient house, it has many original features, family portraits and's like touching hands with history. In 2016 we refurbished both bathrooms, added a utility room with a washer & drier and upgraded the kitchen.

Our family occupies the upper floors of the house only occasionally (usually in winter months), the ground floor, including the secluded private garden and swimming pool (6.5m x 3.5m x 1.4m) are for your exclusive use.

What makes this house unique

Bourg St. Andeol is at the crossroads of the Ardèche, Drôme, Gard and Vaucluse. The Gorges de l’Ardèche, with freshwater swimming and canoeing are a 15 minute drive away and the ancient castle town of Grignan is 30 minutes away. There are many local vineyards, our favourite is Chateau Rochecolombe, with their award winning Cotes du Rhone!

Bourg St. Andeol is a classic French village with the added bonus of being where the renowned French wine Cote du Rhone is produced. Staying in Le Bourg is the perfect opportunity to immerse yourself in French village life. From the sound of the church bells marking the hour or waking you up in the morning, to taking a stroll to the bakery for a fresh croissant at breakfast time the old village has all you need within walking distance.

Only 12 KM away is Saint-Martin-d'Ardèche, situated at the Southern entrance of the Ardèche Canyon, the Gorges de l'Ardèche. Here you can relax on a sandy beach, swim in the river (lifeguards and roped area) or hire pedalos or canoes.

Only 27 KMs away is the the UNESCO world heritage site, Grotte Chauvet-Pont d’Arc, Ardèche. These earliest-known and best-preserved cave drawings in the world, dating back as early as the Aurignacian period (30,000–32,000 BP), making it an exceptional testimony of prehistoric art.

For a day trip one can visit Pont du Gard (66 KM) an ancient Roman aqueduct that crosses the River Gardon in the south of France. Located near the town of Vers-Pont-du-Gard.
