This imposing 17th century large manor house has been in the same family for generations. Lovingly maintained and furnished with antiques, attractive artworks and sculptures, this is an impressive home in the dramatic Ardeche region.
The grounds of this large manor house are spacious, secluded and well manicured. A covered outdoor dining and barbecue area provides a wonderful shady place to enjoy a meal and a glass of local wine whilst enjoying the beautiful views towards the Cevennes mountain range.
Les Figuiers is in a tiny hamlet (population 21), which is on the path of many walking, cycling and horse riding trails through pine and chestnut forests. There is a horse riding stable less than 1 mile away. The nearby village of Lablachere has a ' Cave Cooperative' where you can purchase local wines. There are several restaurants within easy reach.
