About the property

Spacious villa with large garden and fantastic views.

Since July 2013, the house “Le Noyer” got 4 stars (keys) from the French Clévacances organisation (a National Holiday Rentals Federation). See our site (in GB).

Our cottage “Le Noyer,” built in 2010, provides accommodation for a maximum of 8 guests. It is perfectly suitable for two families with children, a few couples, or grandparents with children and grandchildren. The holiday home is let out on a weekly basis from Saturday to Saturday. During the low season and mid-season it’s also possible to rend the house for a weekend (from Friday till Monday, 3 nights) or a midweek (from Monday till Friday, 4 nights). Our house is suited with internet. There are 2 bathrooms with electric heating, both with double wash basin, shower and toilet. One bathroom is also suited with a bath, the other with a bidet. We have 2 extra baby beds and a baby bath. There is a tv and a DVD player. Le Noyer cottage was constructed with excellent integrated insulation. In summer it stays pleasantly cool. In winter it is easily heated with a wood stove. The 'Sialle' brook borders the spacious garden. A waterfall and a secluded water play area is located adjacent to the cottage. Children can safely play in the brook. A patio on the sunny side offers a lovely view of a traditional nut orchard. Physical location of the cottage commands wonderful views of the regional nature park of the Ardèche mountains (Parc Naturelle Régional des Monts d’Ardèche).

About Hedzer Klarenbeek

Dutch architect Ronald In ’t Hout, living and working in the Ardèche, produced the architectural design. With his assistance, we created a house that eventually turned out much more beautiful than we had dared to dream. Our home has a traditional Ardèche architectural style in combination with modern, open and spacial elements. The entire house, built by local contractors, is characterised by the theme of open and closed features. The building project itself was marked by a trouble-free and pleasant atmosphere. The grand opening of Le Noyer took place in the summer of 2010.

The design of the house included some unique sustainability aspects. Le Noyer, built of ecologically produced material (so-called Ytong cellular concrete), is excellently insulated. The house and the living room windows have a lay-out preventing most sunlight in the summer and providing as much sunlight as possible in the winter. In summer, the house stays wonderfully cool and in winter it is pleasantly warm, heated with a wood stove and electric heating.

Hedzer Klarenbeek purchased this villa in 2007

Why Hedzer Klarenbeek chose Désaignes

We very much appreciate the flow region and the area surrounding the Le Doux river in the Northern Ardèche. Searching quite a long time for an older home which we intended to renovate was no easy task. So when we discovered a vacant plot of land in 2007, located on the edge of the village of Désaignes, we decided to build a house there. The home called “Le Noyer” (French for ‘nut tree’), was named after the nut tree orchard adjacent to the house.

What makes this villa unique

Le Noyer It is a beautifull fantastic house with fantastic views in a fantastic environment. Open, free, sunny, wonderfully comfortable. Ideal place for your holidays! On our website are comments of tenants (

Physical location of the cottage commands wonderful views of the regional nature park of the Ardèche mountains (Parc Naturelle Régional des Monts d’Ardèche).The lawn by the side of the house may be used as a play area for children.

The surrounding area offers lovely opportunities for walking, swimming and biking.The picturesque, medieval village of Désaignes is situated at an elevation of 520 m. Désaignes is a ‘village de caractère’ giving it a protected status. The heart of the village is the castle, serving as a regional museum. It is open to the public in the summer. The village has a bakery, a butcher, a small supermarket, a post office, town hall with tourist information, hotels, a restaurant, a café, bar/tabac and a garage with a petrol station.

Désaignes borders the banks of the Doux river. In summer, the river is dammed up in various spots resulting in a ‘plan d’eau’: a natural area where people can swim. The plan d’eau of Désaignes is located within walking distance from the holiday cottage. There are picnic areas with facilities for children surrounded by shady trees. In July and August a lifeguard is on duty in the afternoons.

At a distance of 6 km from Désaignes you will find the town of Lamastre, which has a regional appeal. In Lamastre an open market is held twice a week. It boasts many facilities, such as a large supermarket, a great variety of shops, hotels, restaurants, pizzerias, sport facilities and an internet shop. Moreover, the town offers medical facilities: general practitioners, veterinarians and pharmacies. In summer, cultural activities are regularly taking place in Désaignes and the surrounding area. Check Désaignes and Lamastre on the Internet to see the variety of staged concerts, expositions and festivals.
