The apartment consists of one bedroom (4.5 m x 3.5 m) with four-poster bed, a sitting room of identical size, a kitchen/dining area and a toilet/shower room.
Le Savel is a 17th century stone farmhouse with various outbuildings which were used for chestnut-drying and silk-worm rearing, the main activities along with grapes and olives until about fifty years ago. The setting of Le Savel is exceptional. At 350 metres altitude and in absolute tranquillity the property has an uninterrupted panorama to the south of the Chassezac and the hills and mountains beyond its terraced land descending steeply through vines and olive trees, pine-woods and heather to a little stream. There is a swimming pool (11 x 5m) and organic produce generally available - fruit, vegetables and wine. There are two totally self-contained apartments, each with a four-poster bed, terrace, barbecue area and hammock. The one-bedroom apartment now has a comfortable 140 x 190cm sofa-bed in the sitting room. The Bergerie has a second (children's) bedroom. Each has a floor area of approximately 50 m² and a wood-burning stove for winter warmth. Towels and bed linen are provided.
What an absolute find , if you want peace and tranquility this is the place, scenery is breath taking, the weather was very Hot , the owners are lovely and we will definitely return. Le Vans is very pretty and has plenty of restaurants . Walking and cycling is a must be very hilly so be prepared. Property is very well maintained and very clean. Just lovely.

We are 70 km southwest of Loriol, the auto route du Soleil exit that we normally use. But less busy and more picturesque is the auto route to Bourges and Clermond-Ferrand. Within a southerly arc of about 100 km from Les Vans lie Avignon, Nîmes, Arles and Montpellier. The Sud-Ardèche is the northerly limit of the Mediterranean climate with its olive trees, evergreen oaks and maritime pines. Les Vans is a typically friendly southern town with a lively Saturday market, where during the quieter winter months one is just as likely to hear patois spoken in the bars and cafés as French. They play boules all evenings and nurture family feuds with Mediterranean zeal. We are a twelve minute drive from there.We have an excellent wood-turning centre nearby offering short courses and also,at Le Savel the use of a fully equipped workshop for practice sessions
