Interaction with guests
We both know the area extremely well and are keen walkers. We are able to advise on walking trails, site seeing options, local restaurants and sporting interests.
We purchased the farmhouse in 2006 and slowly, lovingly and sympathetically to tradition, restored it over the years. The old barn has been converted into 2 gites, which are now available for rental. What initially attracted us to the area was a love of the outdoors, as we are keen walkers. The flora and fauna is amazing and views to die for. It was love at first sight.
The gite is located in a beautifully restored old farmhouse set in the medieval rural village of Roche-en-Regnier at 900 metres. There are wonderful views of the Ardeche mountains and the St Jacques de Compostelle walking trail passes directly in front of the house. Walk from the front door into beautiful unspoilt countryside. Wildlife abounds. Peace and tranquillity and a sense of bygone days.
Your holiday gite has stunning views over the surrounding undulating countryside - the perfect setting for your restful break from the hurly-burly of modern life. Ten mins to Vorey-sur-Arzon for good restaurants, shops, swimming pools, canoe hire. Ideal place for exploring the area. Activities include fishing, hiking, canoeing, mountain biking, hang-gliding, riding, swimming, winter skiing (downhill and cross country), husky dog trips from the village, snow shoeing. Visit the historic town of Le-Puy-en-Velay, see the source of the River Loire at Mont Gerbier and the internationally acclaimed town of Chaise Dieu renowned for it's classical music concerts. You can visit the lava flow of La Coulee de Lave close to the unique forgotten village of Chateau de Chalencon. The region offers so much for tourists, both in winter and summer.
As this property is situated in the countryside a car is essential.
The Gites are non smoking. Unfortunately we are unable to accept pets.We expect the Gite to be left clean and tidy and we request a deposit of 50 euros which we return if the Gite is as found.
