Lablachere Barn Rental Photos and Description

La Petite Grange is a welcoming one bedroomed converted barn ideal for a couple or small family. It has a large terrace and barbecue to fully enjoy the mild Spring and Summer nights and the wonderful colours of Autumn, shaded by an awning and a beautiful fig tree.

A comfortable sofa in the lounge allows you to stay as a small family and there is plenty of space in the bedroom for a baby bed. The bathroom has a shower, wash basin and WC.

Comfortable & well appointed

Comfortable & well appointed
  • 4 of 5
A well appointed gite with ample living space & large double bedroom with ensuite shower room. Barbecue terrace with long views over the local countryside to the hills. Friendly and helpful owners on site. Situated between Lablachere & Joyeuse, both a short walk away. We enjoyed the market in Joyeuse & the wine tasting at Cave de Lablachere. Plenty of local walks or take short car rides to the local sights - see the well stocked information pack. We enjoyed a very comfortable seven night stay in this gite with several trips out including the not to be missed caves at Grande Site de l’Aven d’Organac & the Ardeche gorge, which even we canoed down though complete novices, a wonderful way to see the gorge.

A lovely place to stay

  • 4 of 5
We have just returned from France having spent a week in La Petite Grange. The gite was a great place to stay, and we would certainly recommend it to others for a number of reasons. The property itself is in a good location, within an easy drive of the major tourist attractions, but far enough away so that the area does not feel too 'touristy'. The gite is well furnished and equipped and provided everything we needed. It was also very clean and well maintained. Outside is a lovely terrace and we spent most of our evenings sitting outside enjoying the evening sun. We certainly enjoyed our visit and hope to return at some later date.

Lovely gite in excellent location

  • 5 of 5
La Petite Grange is a lovely, well maintained and clean property in a beautiful location with easy access to local facilities and attractions. Joyeous, which is situated only a few minutes drive away has very good shopping and restuarant facilities but is also within reasonable walking distance as is Lablachere in the oposite direction.
The area is one of the most beautiful we have visited, not only in France but generally throughout the world, with some stunning scenery and many picturesque and interesting villages within easy reach. Local markets are held around the area on a daily basis.
La Petite Grange has all the equipment and facilities which could be reasonably required for a pleasant and comfortable self catering holiday and the owners, Alan and Jane, who live on site were most helpful and accomodating.
Because we live in a small quiet rural village in England we had a slight concern over the immediately adjacent road but a fairly recently built bypass accomodates the vast majority of through trafic and we didn't have any problems.
We travelled to this location on Eurostar direct from London to Avignon where we picked up a hire car (booked through Eurostar) and drove to Lablachere. This is a new service which we found most convenient and mostly trouble free.
We would certainly recommend La Petite Grange to friends or relatives and we hope to return some time in the not too distant future.
David, Elva & Jude.
Note: We attempted to place this review on more than one occasion shortly after our return but the normal 'homeaway' website wouldn't respond.

Charming and relaxing

  • 5 of 5
La Petite Grange is part of a beautiful old building. It was clean, well
laid out and well furnished. The owners were extremely helpful
and provided lots of information on the area.

The standard of finish was high, particularly the kitchen which
was extremely pleasant and well equipped. We made good use of the
British Freesat TV channels and the free wi-fi.

We stayed in January but it was sunny every day. Not much is open
attraction-wise as this is the quietest time of the year but we came for
relaxation and we certainly got it.

The cottage is only a couple of minutes either way to the two closest towns
where you can buy everything you need.

We were very pleased with the cottage and would recommend it.

A stunning place to visit!

  • 5 of 5
We have just returned from a lovely, relaxing stay in Lablachere. The accommodation at La Petit Grange was homely and comfortable. It was very clean and provided everything we needed for our holiday. The information pack suggested lots of places to visit and activities to do and we also really appreciated the local knowledge of the owner in finding our way around and finding places we may otherwise have missed out on. The scenery is breathtaking and a drive along the Ardeche Gorge is well worth doing. We only wish we had booked the kayak trip to fully appreciate the views. There are many little medieval towns which are beautiful and have fabulous coffee shops and gift shops. Lablachere and Joyeues are within walking distance of the accommodation and we would highly recommend a visit to Maison de Nany in Joyesus old town for an evening meal. A stunning place to visit and we thoroughly enjoyed relaxing on the terrace with a bottle (or two) of the local merlot. Thank you to Alan & Jane for their kind hospitality.

Beautiful spot!

  • 5 of 5
My girlfriend and I had a great holiday here! It really is a beautiful spot and there's so much to do in the area whether you're into adventure sports or just enjoy wandering around sleepy French towns and taking in the scenery. The gite was perfect for our needs, beautifully done out to a high standard and full with everything you'll need. We thoroughly enjoyed sitting on the terrace with a glass of wine in the evening and enjoying the atmosphere.
Jane and Alan, the proprietors, are very friendly and full of information on what's going on in the surrounding area. We would definitely book again.
