About Rianne and Owen Wagenaar
We wanted to leave Holland for another kind of life where we would have the opportunity to work together and see our children grow up. So we arrived in 1980 on the land where the parents of Owen already had a small holiday home since 1960. We started first with 3 gites and in 1990 we bought the farm for 13 people (belonging to friends) and every year we are working and trying to make it to the taste of our guests.
Rianne and Owen Wagenaar purchased this House in 1990
Why Rianne and Owen Wagenaar chose Saint-Apollinaire-de-Rias
Because La Grange is a true resort with lots of space, without near neighbors, a nearby swimming pool and located in a region that invites to discover and visit the middle Ardèche.
What makes this House unique
The tranquility of the site, the terrace with beautiful furniture, the stream that runs along the ground, the balcony to enjoy the day start in the sun and the pool. The welcoming by the owners and the intimacy of the place.

60th birthday celebration
We rented all the properties on the complex. We had french and English friends and family. It is extremely well catered for large groups and ample sitting outside for 20 to dine ! There is also a very large cooker in the house that was really brilliant for cooking for such a large group and the cabins all had cooking facilities as well. The swimming pool was huge and awesome and very well maintained. There was plenty of activities for young and old onsite and wonderful walks starting from the doorstep. The entire complex is very isolated which is what we were looking for however a car is an absolute must as the nearest shop and village is a 10 minute car drive. Rianne was very helpful on several occasions. The only downside for people coming from abroad in airplane or train is the fact that towels are not provided at all and bedding is on request! I believe it would be better if these where included in an overall rental cost. All in all a successful special birthday celebration that will have long lasting happy memories. C&F (UK)
Thank you for your nice review and you are right about the towels !
Our next guests coming by plane will find a towel set as well.
Séjour d'une semaine
Nous avons passé une semaine très détendante en famille. Le lieu est propice au repos. L'immense étendue de terrain permet aux enfants de jouer sans risque et cela a fait leur bonheur. Sans compter, pour les grands aussi, le ping pong, la piscine et le baby foot !!!
location tres confortable
The location was very beautiful. We enjoyed our holiday.
Grande bâtisse rustique avec le confort mais mériterait certaines pièces mériteraient un petit rafraichissement, piscine et jeux très sympas
point le plus négatif: réseau électrique, sécurité réseau électrique et connexion hasardeuse par endroit
Accueil agréable et propriétaire à l'écoute
Bon séjour pour se reposer mais attention à l'insonorisation
Le gite est conforme aux attentes. On est au calme et à l'ombre, un peu loin de tout, mais c'est aussi ce qui en fait le charme. La piscine est vraiment très bien. Un seul point négatif : la mauvaise isolation entre les chambres. Les parois sont vraiment très minces. le moindre bruit dans une des chambres est répercuté dans les autres.
vacance et cadre tres agreable
maison et cadre agreable .activite et prestation (piscine mini golfe ext.. tres bien ).Proprietaire sympathique .commerce ,restaurant pas tres loin
