About this listing

Wild, secluded and with spectacular scenery, Alauzon is a collection of four rental properties (and our home) on 12 hectares of land surrounded by hills and forests.
The Studio is a charming and practical space with spectacular scenery through the windows on three sides.
Highlights are the stunning natural pool, a big playground for kids of all ages, walking and biking trails from your doorstep, great food from local producers and the Provence sunshine. Mountain bike hire is available on site.

The space

The Studio is a modern, self-contained, independent apartment with all modern conveniences (coffee machine, toaster, microwave oven, conventional oven, refrigerator, WIFI). A shaded picnic table is outside the front door next to a small grove of trees. A comfortable double bed is located up a steep set of stairs on the mezzanine level. Additionally, a double sofa bed is located in the living area along with a dining table and four chairs. The bathroom has a shower, sink, toilet and heated towel rail.

The Studio is pleasant year-round. Situated above the boiler room it stays warm in the winter. In summer it stays relatively cool due to being well-ventilated (five windows).

At Alauzon we aim to use our natural resources as efficiently as possible. We live very much in tune with our environment. Our water comes from our well and heated using solar panels. In winter, we have a modern wood-fired stove to power the central heating. We treat our wastewater on site using plant filtration beds.

Our guests love the panoramic views from the property which make you feel like you’re alone in the middle of wilderness. The property is on 13 hectares with a great diversity of geology and ecosystems. We are particularly well suited for families (large playground, no roads) and sporty types (hiking, mountain and road biking, climbing, via ferrata).

Guest access

In addition to being our home, we have four rental properties on twelve hectares of land to accommodate 1 to 30 people. You can hire all 4 properties or just the one(s) that suit(s) you.

Guests share access to the pool, boules court, playground and table tennis.

Each property has its own entrance and outside space, including shaded outdoor eating area.

We hire mountain bikes at a discounted rate for guests (15€ adults/ 10€ children 16 and under).

Interaction with guests

We live on site and will be available to answer any questions, sort out any problems that arise and generally help you have the best holiday here.

Other things to note

A headtorch is very useful here as it gets very dark at night!

Please read the directions carefully (Getting Around) so that you don’t end up on the forest tracks! We don’t recommend following sat nav from Buis-les-Baronnies. We can email you a map and directions.

Travelling with children? We can help! We can provide a travel cot, baby bath and high chair. We have two children and we know what it's like to travel with the little ones, so don't worry if you forget to pack something, we can help you out.

Drinking water: Water from our well is filtered on site (physical and UV filter). However, there remains a high fluoride count (the stuff you get in toothpaste). There are no ill effects from drinking it for a short period of time or cooking with it. We will provide you with a large container of drinking water (‘eau potable’) from the village springs which you may refill at Les Sias or La Roche-sur-le-Buis (next to the town hall).

Pool: Three rules for the pool. 1. The pool gate MUST remain closed at all times. We have two young children who can’t swim. 2. It’s a natural swimming pool (no chlorine) using plant filtration- please rinse off before jumping in to help keep the water clean. 3. Animals aren’t permitted in the pool area as they may contaminate the pool.

[Piscine: Trois règles à respecter. 1. Refermer le portail. Nous avons deux jeunes enfants qui ne savent pas nager. 2. C’est une piscine naturelle (sans chlore) donc vous êtes priés de vous rincer sous la douche avant chaque baignade. 3. Les animaux ne sont pas permis autour de la piscine pour crainte de contamination de la piscine et des bassins de filtration.]

Compost/Recycling/Rubbish: There are compost bins in the kitchen area. Citrus fruit peels and meat/fish shouldn’t be placed in here. Guests should empty the compost bins in our compost area. A bin for sorting our recycling is provided. Rubbish and recycling should be taken by guests to the nearest collection point in the hamlet of Les Sias- there is no household collection in our region. Bags are provided. Finally- please don’t leave food out as this will attract rodents, foxes, ants, etc…

[Compost/Recyclage/Poubelles: Un seau pour le compost se trouve dans la cuisine et vous pouvez le vider dans les bennes en bois à côté du parking. N’y mettez pas d’agrumes ni de viandes ou poissons. Quand vous partez, merci de vider les poubelles et le recyclage. Le point de collection le plus proche est au Sias. Ranger toute nourriture (dedans et dehors) pour ne pas attirer les animaux (souris, renards, fourmis, etc…)]

Wastewater: All wastewater is treated by plant filtration so only human waste and toilet paper may be flushed down the toilet. Tampons, pads, wet wipes and anything else should be disposed in the toilet bin.

[Eaux usées : Les eaux usées sont traités par phyto-épurations (plantes). Ne jettez rien (sauf papier toilette) dans les WC- une poubelle est prévu pour toute autre déchets (tampax, lingettes, etc. ).]

Very nice hosts, very welcoming. The cabin is very cosy, clean and provides everything you need. Although there are other cabins, we felt like we had our private space. The location is quiet and remote, in a smaller valley, as described. But if you have a car, it's easy to reach the next town within 20 mins or so. Definitely a nice place to get away from it all!

Amazing location! We stayed for one night and really enjoyed it. The cabin was as described and Audrey was very helpful, giving us clear directions and helping recommending cycle routes. Would definitely recommend.

万万没想到在山上 哈哈哈哈 不开车是绝对到不了的 不吃饱喝足也不建议入住 因为周边是没有餐厅的 还好Audrey发给我们的地图上写了经纬度 不然导航也是难以找到的 我们上山的时候就是没吃晚饭 但是心太累也不想开下山吃饭了 于是Audrey的老公给了我们很多食材 自己在小木屋里做的 也挺好 晚上要关好门窗 飞蛾苍蝇挺多的 但是田园风光远离城市喧嚣 很美好

Un coin de rêve pour les amoureux de la nature, un silence absolu, un équipement très agréable (hamacs, piscine, fauteuils etc), des hôtes très prévenants et agréables. Un logement qui vaut le détour!

Le logement est charmant et très bien équipé. Il est confortable et son emplacement dans un cadre enchanteur a rendu notre (trop) court séjour magique! La piscine et le trampoline sont très agréables avec une vue magnifique. Audrey et son mari se sont rendus très disponibles pour nous. Un vrai coin de paradis dans lequel nous souhaitons revenir un jour!

Un endroit merveilleux pour un séjour des plus agréables. Malgré les petits pépins de WIFi et la couleur verte de l'eau de la piscine due à une filtration naturelle et donc plus lente, la sympathie d'Audrey ainsi que de sa famille et l'endroit merveilleux dans lequel ils vivent ont rendu ce séjour des plus plaisants. Leur propriété est magnifiquement bien située. Loin de tout et dans un cadre naturel magnifique. Pour les passionnés de Vélo (VTT et/ou route) c'est l'endroit idéal. Mon amie et moi-même louons les efforts qu'Audrey et sa famille font afin d'avoir une empreinte verte des plus élevée. Ils y arrivent très très bien. Au plaisir de revenir les voir.

Audrey User Profile

I was the Managing Director of The Castle Climbing Centre in London for ten years. I'm really into climbing and won three national championships while in the UK (2006- Bouldering, 2008- Leading & Bouldering). I'm also into cycling (both mountain and road).

My parents are French, but I grew up in the States (Chicago) so I'm bilingual French-English. I lived in London for 14 years before fulfilling my lifelong dream of moving to the South of France in August 2014.

I have two young children- Raphael (5) and Caspian (2). My husband, Adrian Berry, is also a climber and mountain biker. You can read more about him on his website:
