The house

  • Quiet, rural area

This charming studio-apartment is located in the heart of the Parc naturel régional des Monts d'Ardèche......un petit coin de paradis, as the French say so beautifully.

Admire the breathtaking view from the large southern terrace! You look straight at the mountains and valleys of the South Ardèche and it's possible to go hiking directly from the apartment. This area is also a paradise for cycling enthusiasts with a road bike or mountain bike. In the surroundings there are many beautiful swimming spots with crystal clear water. We are happy to give you good tips!

Gite l' Hirondelle has an authentic French character. It has thick natural stone walls which ensure a pleasant climate inside even when it is hot! The apartment has a sitting and dining area. The bedroom has double Pullman boxspring beds, with comfortable duvets. The kitchen is fully equipped and has a Nespresso coffee maker. The bathroom is spacious and has a washbasin, shower and WC.

From the Hirondelle apartment it's a 10 minute drive to Vals les Bains where you find a butcher's, baker's, supermarket and terraces. Lively Vals has a picturesque centre with narrow streets and is very well known for its Spa and the healthy, pure spring water. You shower with us in mineral water!

Staying in the l'Hirondelle gite is more of an experience. The tranquility, the views, nature. If you listen carefully you will hear nothing at all here, except for the cheerful hirondelles (swallows) and the bells of the sheeps. The terrace is a super nice place to "be" and in the evening it is wonderful to watch the stars. With 300 sunny days per year and a Mediterranean climate, it is a lovely, welcoming holiday home to enjoy in peace and quiet.

    l'Hirondelle, een bijzonder leuke (16e eeuwse) gîte, van alle gemakken voorzien, klein maar fijn! We konden gebruik maken van het fantastische terras waar vandaan je een adembenemend uitzicht had (overigens ook vanuit de gîte). De eigenaren, Anneke en Dominique, zijn zeer gastvrij, niets is hen teveel, je kunt altijd bij ze aankloppen, je krijgt allerlei tips om zoveel mogelijk van de prachtige omgeving te kunnen genieten!
    Kortom: een aanrader voor iedereen die van rust, wandelen en de natuur houdt.

    Lieve Anneke en Dominique,
    Het was fantastisch! Definitie gastvrij Dominique en Anneke! Wat een mooie plek om te verblijven en wat hebben we het gebied en de ‘geheime plekjes’ door jullie kunnen ontdekken. Het paardrijden in Vinezac tussen de wijngaarden en olijfbomen zullen we nooit vergeten! Kortom: genoten met een grote ‘G’.

    Nu voor de derde keer bij jullie geweest en weer was het voortreffelijk. Onderhoud en zorg zijn super. Alles is heel verzorgd en goed onderhouden, en steeds vinden er verbouwingen en vernieuwingen plaats, chapeau!
    We voelen ons altijd welkom en thuis bij jullie en ondanks dat we al veel van de Ardeche hebben gezien, blijft het elke keer een feest om bij jullie te verblijven. Dat betekent dus dat we weer terugkomen! Veel dank en veel succes met jullie mooie onderneming.
    Lieve groeten van Paul en Marian
