The gite has thick natural stone walls which ensure a pleasant climate inside even when it is hot!

From the large terrace you have a breathtaking view of the mountains and the valley, through which the rivers Ardèche, Volane and Fontolière run. A wonderfully tranquil spot to have your meals and to enjoy sunsets or starry skies later in the night. There is also a bistro located on the terrace (Cave) where you can have a drink or play games and listen to music. You even cook together here, upon request.
The gite is situated in a beautiful area with several walking paths , but it is not secluded. There are several lovely places along the river where you can swim. From our house it is a 10 minute drive to Vals-les-Bains where you find a butcher's, baker's, supermarket and terraces. So you don't have to drive in to town. Lively Vals has a picturesque centre with narrow streets and there is always plenty to do, especially in summer months (every Thursday and Sunday morning market, music, fireworks and much more). There is a fine swimming pool with natural water and a modern cinema. The range of cafes and restaurants (17) is large. Vals-les-Bains is known for its Spa and the healthy, pure spring water. In our gite you shower in mineral water!
Staying in this holiday home is enjoying a fantastic place with an unforgettable view! It is an ideal destination for guests who seek sun, peace and nature. No disturbing noises. The only thing you hear is the occasional sheep and lively hirondelles (swallows). With 300 sunny days per year and a Mediterranean climate, it is a lovely, welcoming holiday home from April to late October to enjoy in peace and quiet.

    We hebben genoten van 2 weken in jullie mooie en rustig gelegen appartement. Het uitzicht vanaf balkon en terras was prachtig. De locatie was voor ons een ideaal uitgangspunt voor wandelingen en uitstapjes.
    Dominique en Anneke, julie waren zeer gastvrij en behulpzaam. Nogmaals dank voor alle tips die we van jullie kregen.
    We komen zeker nog een keer terug!

    Wat hebben we genoten van onze eerste kennismaking met de Ardeche!
    Dominique en Anneke doen er alles aan om te zorgen dat hun gasten een geweldige vakantie hebben; een prachtige gite met geweldig uitzicht, leuke tips over de omgeving, hulp wanneer nodig.
    De jongste (2,5 jaar) wilde niet weg; een mooier compliment kun je niet hebben!

  • 9 stars

    We hebben genoten van alles wat deze mooie streek te bieden heeft; bergen, bossen, rust, lekker gegeten in charmante dorpjes, het terras van jullie gezellige gite, het uitzicht. Heel erg bedankt voor de vele fijne tips. We hebben ‘la douce France’ beleefd zoals het hoort; op het gemak en zonder zorgen. Jullie zijn uitstekende ‘vakantiemakers’ . Misschien ook wel belangrijk om te melden: het bed lag heerlijk goed, meestal mis ik die van mijzelf op vakantie, maar dit keer dus niet. Dikke merci!
    Jim en Elyse
