This characterful historic silk farm, with its far-reaching views across the Rhône valley, has been immaculately and elegantly renovated to provide an exquisite holiday villa, ideal for a group of families or friends looking for relaxation in a beautiful setting. The view and seductively peaceful atmosphere of the house cannot be described - we can only say that none of our guests ever want to leave, and many return.
The heated saltwater swimming pool overlooks those stunning views, and the layout of the property includes numerous terraces, enclosed courtyard, balcony and boules area so that everyone has space to relax or play. With seven bedrooms and four bathrooms (7 WCs) the property accommodates up to 17 people, including a self-contained, adjoining 'apartment' with its own kitchen and lounge. The spacious Bulthaup kitchen in the main house was designed for communal cooking and dining and contains all the high-end appliances you could wish for. Children can enjoy the bunk bedroom (sleeps 5), children's 'den', table tennis in the courtyard, any number of outdoor games on the generous boules terrace - and of course the 11 x 5m pool.
The house is situated on the edge of the Ardêche, 7km from Montélimar and within easy reach of world class vineyards, lavender fields, olive groves and peach tree farms. Guests who can manage to tear themselves away from the seductive comfort of the house can discover roman and medieval villages, hike spectacular trails, canoe through the Ardêche gorges, go wine-tasting or visit the ancient cities of Orange, Avignon and Arles.
Guests are provided with a welcome basket, all bedlinen, towels, pool towels, wifi, dvd player and dvd library, children's toys, infant beds and high chairs, bikes, indoor and outdoor games and gift bags of nougat. A local contact person is available during the stay and services such as in-house chef, babysitting, airport pick-ups and access to tennis courts can be arranged. The owners, together with their housekeeper, have put an amazing amount of personal thought into ensuring your comfort and enjoyment.
In summary, if you are looking for somewhere to make a family reunion or particular occasion unforgettably special - or for the most rejuvenating holiday possible, this is the place. You can be confident that everyone in your party will thank you!
