    Eind september waren wij met vrienden twee weken te gast in Désaignes, waar we vriendelijk ontvangen werden door Marc, de gastheer. Le Noyer is een prachtig ontworpen, comfortabel huis met veel faciliteiten. Genieten is het op het grote terras en in de tuin rondom het huis. Bij aankomst werden we verrast met twee heerlijke flessen wijn. Prettig zijn de goed uitgeruste, zeer ruime keuken en de extra bijkeuken. Fijn zijn de ruime slaapkamers met grote bedden en goede matrassen. De goed functionerende open haard maakte de avonden extra gezellig. Overdag hebben we vanuit huis veel mooie wandelingen kunnen maken, handig daarbij was het mapje met Nederlandse beschrijvingen. Vergeet niet in het dorp te gaan eten in de gastvrije herberg en in het geweldige vegetarische restaurant L’Âne Têtu. En voor een gemakkelijk avondje eten: bij de pizzeria worden heerlijke pizza’s gebakken.
    Via de mooie brochure waren we voorbereid op onze vakantie in Le Noyer. Het werkelijke verblijf daar en in de prachtige omgeving valt echter niet in woorden en foto’s te vangen, dat moet je gaan beleven. We komen heel graag terug.

    Na alle corona perikelen, was het nog wel even spannend of onze vakantie wel door zou gaan. (Overigens prima gecommuniceerd met Hedzer wat te doen bij negatief reisadvies).
    Maar uiteindelijk hebben we een onvergetelijke tijd gehad in dit prachtige huis. Met ons tweeën meer dan ruimte genoeg in dit zeer ruime familiehuis. Elke avond buiten kunnen eten dankzij het prachtige na-zomer weer en de beschutting van het overdekte terras. De omgeving biedt meer dan genoeg ontspanningsmogelijkheden. Volop gewandeld in de directe omgeving en ook wat verder weg (Mont Mezenc, aanrader!), grotten bezocht wat verder in de Ardeche maar vooral genoten van een idyllische omgeving, goede locale producten en vooral heel veel rust.
    Kortom, graag tot een volgende keer!

    La maison est absolument conforme au descriptif, le poêle chauffe parfaitement la maison. Tout c'est très bien passé. Très bon contact avec le propriétaire. Le terrain est agréable et la cascade très belle. Nous connaissons le village y ayant de la famille. Nous apprécions son bourg classé; les cours d'eau et les forêts environnantes.

    "Het huis is absoluut in overeenstemming met de beschrijving, de kachel verwarmt het huis perfect. Alles ging heel goed. Zeer goed contact met de eigenaar. Het terrein is mooi en de waterval erg mooi. We kennen het dorp en hebben daar familie. Wij waarderen het geheime stadje; beken en omliggende bossen."

Further remarks

In 2007, we found a plot of building land on the edge of the village of Désaignes and decided to build a house with local entrepreneurs. We named it 'Le Noyer' (the walnut tree), named after the walnut orchard next to the house. My son and I take care of the rentals.

Dutch architect Ronald In 't Hout, who lives and works in the Ardèche, designed it. The house has traditional Ardèchoise architecture combined with modern open and spatial elements. This interplay between open and closed has been implemented throughout the house. Construction went smoothly and in a pleasant atmosphere. The opening took place in summer 2010.

The house was built of ecologically produced materials (so-called Ytong cellular concrete) and has excellent insulation. The house and the living room windows are designed to minimise sunlight in summer and maximise sunshine in winter. The house is wonderfully cool in summer and pleasantly warm in winter. The house is heated with a wood-burning stove and electric radiators (in the living room, kitchen and both bathrooms).

You are most welcome!

Kind regards,
Hedzer Klarenbeek.
