Overview

About the property

Restored farmhouse with lots of character, for lovers of old stones in the countryside, close to a bustling village and just 29 km from Lyon. In a privileged setting, with panoramic 360 °, a quiet, surrounded by fields and no neighbors. A wing of the building is available for rent, the other being very occasionally occupied by the owner. The decoration is in harmony with the charm of the place.

Wonderful countryside cottage for a real getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is a very nice and cozy apartment in a restored farmhouse. One master bedroom (queen) and one secondary bedroom (twin/single bunkbed) upstairs, along with a bathroom and toilet. Downstairs is the sitting room and small kitchen. Out the windows you have a very pastoral view of farmhouses and fields across the valley.

I believe the owner sometimes stays in the main section of the house, although he was away during my visit. The apartment has its own entry door, and is suitably separated from the rest of the house for privacy, should someone else be there. Internet access in the house is quite good.

It can be tricky to find the place at first - turn off the main road (D311) at the sign for la Rafiliere. It is a very narrow and steep driveway. When it splits about 100m up, take the left (upper) road. You will make a sharp switchback turn just before the first house you encounter, and then keep going up a few hundred meters to your destination, on the left (look for the old VW van next to the house).

Make sure to visit the ruins of the old church and walled compound at Rochefort - you can easily walk there by taking a left onto the driveway when you walk out of the house.

Non-French speakers, be aware that basically nobody in the local villages speaks English, although they are very nice and will accommodate as best they can. Know some basic phrases, and keep a positive attitude! You can find basic supermarkets with food and such in the surrounding villages. I had a particularly nice time and meal at "La Bonne Table" in Thurins.

All in all, this is a quiet and peaceful place for that great French countryside escape!

Unique, very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 and small dog truly enjoyed our stay in this updated country home. Every detail has been thought of to make the stay memorable. Frederic was very helpful and accommodating even though we spoke no French. The nearby city of Saint Martin en Haut had plenty to do for a day and 1/2 before exploring Lyon about 30 minutes away. We walked to the medieval city of Rochefort and enjoyed two restaurants with wonderful French cuisine. We highly recommend this property and the area for a unique look into the country life. Amazing vistas also.

Très bonne location que nous recommandons vivement. Maison très bien équipée. Cadre agréable et reposant. Idéal pour les enfants (grand jardin, animaux de la ferme à proximité, etc.). Et pour finir le propriétaire est très accueillant et serviable.
