Charming bed and breakfast with table d’hôtes
in southern Ardèche
Purchasers in 1975 of part of a 17th century hamlet, at the time completely in ruins, we undertook its restoration. In 1995 we decided, to finance it, to create guest rooms there, an emerging activity at the time, therefore rare and attractive in many aspects…And we opened the first two in the year 2000! Gradually we added two others then, over the last ten years, we undertook the rehabilitation of the last part, almost non-existent, of which we made a 120 m2 accommodation on two levels.
Looking back, there is no regret for this initial, impulsive and somewhat daring choice, as it gave so much meaning to our lives. Because it is true that few other activities, better than this one, combine material security and richness of encounters!
Which bed and breakfast…?
We are not tourism professionals and our Bed and Breakfast in Ardèche is not a hotel. It is above all (and for a very long time) our place of life! The decision to create guest rooms there was not taken with a sole commercial aim but also motivated by a desire to meet and share… And after 20 years this adventure still remains a great source of pleasure and happiness of life! Lovers of Anglo-Saxon Bed & Breakfasts and Guest-Houses, we try to preserve their original spirit. Our guests are not (at least we hope…) simple consumer tenants so we try to ensure that they feel both free and welcomed like family.
Located 10 km from the Pont d’Arc and the Gorges de l’Ardèche, the Aven d’Orgnac and the Grotte-Chauvet 2, and recently next to the Anselm Kiefer Foundation, our four rooms and, now , the large gîte are particularly suitable for coming (or returning) to southern Ardèche. In addition, their natural setting (away from the major summer agitations) is particularly protected and very peaceful. The whole overlooks a garden, all the rooms, as well as the gîte, have adjoining terraces.
On its entire south-west facade the farmhouse dominates a large garden, as spontaneous as it is exuberant, extended by a large preserved natural area, a popular refuge for many species of birds (nightingales, orioles, European bee-eaters, falcons, etc. ) and still wild fauna and flora.
It is a place of rare calm, ideal for rest and relaxation.
