Overview

Lablachere Barn Rental Photos and Description

Light And Airy Living Area With 2 Bedrooms And Bathroom Sleeps 4 -Suits families

La Magnanerie is a welcoming two bedroomed converted barn ideal for two couples or a family between Lablachère and Joyeuse..

The property is at first floor level, entering by a tiled staircase onto the large wooden balcony/loggia set out with table and chairs for the superb views where you can fully enjoy the mild Spring and Summer nights and the wonderful colours of Autumn. The living area is open plan and comfortable with two sofas with a separate area which houses the fully-fitted custom built kitchen and dining area. Open stairs lead upstairs to two bedrooms, one with a double bed, the other with two single beds. There is space in the double bedroom for a baby bed or cot which we can provide, subject to prior notice and availability, at a small fee. Similarly, a baby's highchair can also be made available for you. The bathroom contains toilet, sink and large shower.

In addition to the large wooden terrace, there is a small garden area to the side of the property as well as a covered area beneath the terrace for the barbecue.

Wi-fi connection available. French and English television and music centre. Parking for one vehicle.

We also let La Petite Grange (Property number 1000462) which is an adjoining gite with one bedroom for 2/3 people, so if you wish to come as a group, both properties can be let at the same time, subject to availability.

The properties share a further grassy garden area with a bench and parasol.

A washing machine is also available to both properties.

About Jane Marston

My husband worked as an architect in Cumbria for twenty seven years but always wanted to do something more physical in the sunshine. We had already bought La Petite Grange which we imagined we would retire into. In 2009 Alan had the chance to do something different, so he moved to the Ardèche with a view to building and converting properties which we would run as gites. He lived in La Petite Grange whilst he restored it and we then bought the other part of the building, La Magnanerie, from our neighbour so that we could let out La Petite Grange and live in La Magnanerie whilst we built our new home. Alan spent the next year converting La Magnanerie and we lived there very happily for two years before moving into our new house in the summer of 2013. Alan's next project is a further barn conversion on the other side of the village so he certainly has his work cut out for him!

Jane Marston purchased this barn in 2009

Why Jane Marston chose Lablachere

It is light and airy with fantastic views in all directions and just a wonderful place to live.

What makes this barn unique

When we first walked into La Magnanerie we could see a beautiful space with shafts of light coming through the (then rotten) shutters. Opening them up was a magical moment as the space was so light and airy, with wonderful views.

An old stove was rusted up against a wall. The owner told us how his family had been evacuated to La Magnanerie during the war and the stove was his mother's only source for cooking and heating water. He kindly gave us the stove which we have since cleaned up and is in the living area.

We have since converted La Magnanerie and lived there for two years. The first floor has a feeling of light, openness and space and the terrace provides a large outside space with lovely views (and particularly lovely sunsets). Upstairs is more cosy with limited headroom.

Really enjoyed staying in "La Magnanerie".

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed staying in the Magnanerie apartment which was spacious and had a superbly equipped kitchen. The views of sunset from the balcony were thrilling as well as the panoramic view of the Cevennes Mountains.

This was our first trip to the Ardeche and we enjoyed our cycle runs into the local boulangeries each morning and visits to the quaint market towns. Canoeing down the Ardeche River was breathtaking , experiencing a local cave and seeing all the pretty villages made this holiday so exceptional.

We will definitely be booking again next year.

Sehr gemütliches und liebevoll eingerichtetes Haus

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren zum ersten mal in Südfrankreich zum paddeln und haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Das Haus ist urgemütlich und mit allem ausgestattet was man braucht.

Die Vermieter sind sehr nett und aufmerksam ohne aufdringlich zu sein.

Wir kommen bestimmt wieder falls es uns nochmal in die Region verschlägt.
