THE OLD SILK FARM, FARMHOUSE, COURTYARD AND APARTMENT

Rochemaure Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

Take the full stunning 7 bedroom property, or the beautiful 3 bedroom farmhouse.

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.

Kelvin Collins purchased this farmhouse in 2007

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.

Wonderful venue to entertain friends of all ages

  • 5 of 5
It is a beautifully decorated and thought out house with many different terraces/areas to sit out whether around the pool or the main house or cottage area. The room layouts and arrival directions were most helpful and the handover comprehensive/charming with later back up. The modern kitchen was well equipped and everything was wonderfully clean. We would love to return.

Luxury home with outsanding pool and views!

  • 5 of 5
Fabulous property with outstanding views! If you are looking for a very private and spacious home from home, equipped to the highest possible standard and with every possible amenity, then this is the place for you. Newly renovated, the house itself is large, stunning and very private so no issues with noisy neighbours! The pool and sun terrace are fabulous - a great size with unitnerrupted views across the valley. Easily accessible if driving from the UK - car recommened to bring back all the wine and nougat!

Stunning large freshly-restored French farm house

  • 5 of 5
Eleven family and friends met for a week of sun and fun. The house was perfect for a multi-generational gathering (5 to 85), with large and gracious living areas, designer furniture,and a superb state-of-the art kitchen. The bedrooms were fresh and comfortable. Friendly and efficient booking and stress-free visit. All this with a fabulous panoramic view was more than we expected. Look forward to returning!

My family and I arrived a few days before Christmas to find a fresh cut Christmas tree and welcoming hospitality from the moment we arrived. We stayed through New Years and had an outstanding trip! It was the perfect way to spend the holidays. Kelvin was amazing with suggestions for planning prior to our trip, and while there the housekeeper Karine was incredibly helpful as well. We have two small children 6 years and 15 months that loved the cute childrens room and den. We spent our days exploring the Ardeche and the Drome and meeting the wonderful people of Rochemaure. We are already planning a trip back for later this year and planning to have other family members join us in the future. The house itself is amazing, the perfect combination of old and new, was immaculate and beautifly furnished. The kitchen was fantastic, as was the gorgeous fire place. The people of the area are really friendly, one afternoon a local hunter saw us as we were leaving the driveway and we were given a fresh cut of wild boar. In town we met the most wonderful shop owners and even received a freshly found truffel as a gift!
We will be back soon for sure and now look forward to experiencing it in the warmer months as well!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your lovely note!

We're delighted you had a great time, and had a cut of wild boar! Wow! We've seen the hunters often, but that's special treatment.

I hope we can welcome you back soon - I think it becomes even better when you know where you are going a bit better.

Best wishes. Kelvin.

Perfection personified - simply fabulous!

  • 5 of 5
This is quite simply the perfect holiday villa - designer chic yet luxuriously comfortable. We stayed with our family and a big group of friends in August 2013 and had a fabulous time. The interior design is breathtaking, the pool is stunning, and the views are inspiring. The owners have thought of every detail to create the perfect accommodation and it all fits together perfectly. We cannot wait to go back......

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.
