Our bedrooms

Our guest house is the result of the restauration of a hamlet dating from seventeenth century, acquired in 1975 and at the time totally in ruins. While we have been keen to respect traditional construction methods, the interior design and decor of the rooms are resolutely contemporary.
Ideally located in southern Ardèche, at 10 kms from Vallon Pont d'Arc and the Gorges de l'Ardèche, near by the Aven d'Orgnac
and the Caverne of Pont d'Arc, facsimile of the "Grotte Chauvet", our guest rooms are however away from the great summer agitations,
and enjoy a particularly protected natural setting and a beautiful quietude.
They overlook the garden, all have terraces, two private for the third and fourth rooms.
We also offer a "table d'hôte" (only on reservation).

Guide Rivages

We have been selected for 6 years by the "Guide Rivages des Maisons d'hôtes de charme"
This is, from our point of view, the only guide of Bed and Breakfast with an editorial line worthy of the name.
All addresses have been visited (are regularly visited) and registration is free for the hosts. They have no right to look at the texts that describe them! These deserve a lot of attention because they often say as much between the lines as at the first reading ...
After some trial and error the website (IGuide Rivages) which echoes on the net is now in full harmony with the paper edition
and both handsets should be a must-have for any discerning traveler.You can buy it online here or there!
It is certainly an elegant way to resist the mediocrity inherent in online booking platforms and the hold of the "opinion" of everyone, where most often the lack of relevance only disputes it with the banality of the commentary.

The "Caverne du Pontd'Arc" or the triumph of merchantile Culture!

The restitution area of ​​the "Grotte Chauvet" said "Caverne du Pont-d'Arc" is accessible to the public since April 2015.
Built by the Rhône-Alpes region and the General Council of Ardèche with the support of the State and Europe,
it has been presented as one of the largest cultural projects in France today
(the original cave having has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site).
Alas, 2 years later, the reality, unless we redefine the term culture, is far removed from the ambition displayed
even if the quality of the realization (and this is only an aggravating circumstance!) is undeniably confirmed at the height of the stake.
Not inclined to endorse what we are not far from considering as a deception and more, solicited by the managers of the site
to "prolong [their] success we decided to react and make public our point of view ...It's here (for the moment only in French)! Fichier Pdf
