The location combines the best of Provence (climate, wines, vegetation) and the Ardèche (landscape, activities). The manor house is full of charm, art and history that lives up to its spectacular surroundings.
Located on the edge of a small hamlet at the heart of the Ardèche and very close to Provence, this 17th century manor house has been in the owner's family for generations. Shopping facilities and weekly markets can be found at Lablachère (6.5km), Joyeuse (10km) and Les Vans (16km). The market town of Alès is 44km away. The house is off a little road which leads to miles of hiking (or riding or biking) paths through fields or wild box trees, pine and chestnut forests, vineyards and groves, with unimpeded views of hills and mountains.
Local wines used to be unassuming. They now enjoy a very respectable ranking. The vintages are the same as the Côte du Rhône, and there are wonderful Domaines nearby for wine-tasting. The local Cave Coopérative of Lablachère sells good inexpensive wines.
River fishing and swimming are possible at Maisonneuve (3.5km). Montélimar is 67km away and Nîmes, Orange and Avignon are under 100km.
