Rochemaure Farmhouse Rental Rates
- Note a €2000 security deposit will be held for the period of your stay and returned once the cleaner has confirmed everything is OK at the house.
This elegant luxurious farmhouse has been immaculately restored over several years to create the perfect getaway for one or two families.
Its position high over the Rhone Valley gives it spectacular views towards the distant Alps from most windows and from the lovely 11 metre saltwater pool.
Kick back and relax in its calming surroundings, or go on adventures climbing, swimming or canoeing along the stunning Ardeche Gorge.
The Bulthaup kitchen offers every facility you could need, or you can book a chef to do it all for you! We recommend an excellent service that's tried and tested.
The property is extremely spacious, well thought out and an ideal place for either catching up with friends and family - or just enjoying quiet time to read, paint, study, or just admire the views.
Then when you venture out there are fine wines and excellent restaurants to be sampled too.
You also have the option of renting the adjoining two bedroomed apartment, and courtyard bedrooms. The apartment is completely self contained, and could be ideal for another family offering privacy, while being only moments from the group.
The only difficulty you'll have at The Old Silk Farm will be leaving at the end of your stay.
We're two couples who bought this fabulous property as a project which we then spent five years bringing to fruition. It has been a long labour of love, but the results are so rewarding.
Work keeps us away more than we'd like and so we share this beautiful holiday home with discerning guests.

It's all about the views. It was the perfect excuse. Then we built the property up to a glory it has never experienced before.
We believe that The Old Silk Farm offers so many potential holidays from one base. If you want to just chill out, think, read and absorb the views then it's perfect.
But if you want to cycle, canoe, ski then it's all easy from here.
And if you're looking for fine wines and great food, then that's nearby too.
We were quickly convinced that this site is both remote, and amazingly connected, we fell in love, and love it more every minute we spend here.
The farmhouse rests on a quiet hillside overlooking the Rhone valley, a few miles from Rochemaure village with its spectacular cliff top château. 7km away, across the Rhone river and into the Drome is Montelimar, a bigger town famous for its production of the confectionery nougat. The Drome itself is famous for its fruit orchards, lavender fields and olive tree plantations.
Back into the Ardeche, there are local vineyards and markets, medieval and Roman villages and the spectacular gorges of the Ardeche to explore. This is an amazing place for hiking, canoeing, wild swimming, walking ancient cobbled streets and sampling local produce.
For a little wine-tasting, follow the Rhone south into Provence to find Chateauneuf-du-Pape, Gigondas and the best of the Cotes du Rhone vineyards. Roman architecture and ruins abound - from the nearby village of Alba-la-Romaine to the famous Provençal cities of Orange, Avignon and Arles. A 2-hour drive will get you to Aix-en-Provence, Montpellier, or a dip in the Mediterranean sea.
