LOVELY GITE IN LOVELY LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in L'Atelier for one week and were delighted to find such a beautiful location and well maintained cottage. The pictures do not do it justice as it has really been converted beautifully. The terrace is a particularly lovely feature both for our al fresco lunches and playing cards in the evening.

The children made good use of the pool and there is lots to see in the locale. The drive to the gorge was fun and Orange definitely worth a visit.

Thanks for a lovely visit.

FANTASTIC FIND !

  • 5 of 5
We found Le Mas du Chene by chance through an internet search and were absolutely delighted, it really is as beautiful as it looks !! We stayed for 2 weeks in La Secherie with our 4 year old twins. The grounds were lovely with plenty of room for them to run riot and play and the pool was fantastic.

We did lots of sightseeling and days out including Avignon, the Lac D'Issarles, wine tasting in Chateauneauf du Pape, the Gorges d’Ardeche with the stunning Vallon Pont d'Arc and the caves at Orgnac.

We also recommend visiting the nearby small town of St Vincent de Barres, the beautiful little pottery village of Cliousclat and the gorgeous hilltop village of Mirmande.

Thanks John & Ulrika for a great 2 weeks !

BEAUTIFUL GITE AND GREAT LOCATION !

  • 5 of 5
Just returned from a fantastic fortnight in La Secherie. Light and airy gite which has been tastefully decorated and surrounded by lovely gardens - a great place to completely unwind. John and Ulrika unobtrusively helpful and able to provide guidance not just to local restaurants and vineyards but also a supply of fresh figs, tomatoes and garlic ! Hard to drag ourselves away from the pool and grounds but the gite is ideally placed for both the Ardeche and Drome rivers (canoed down both) and exploring the pretty hilltop villages and larger towns (amphitheatre at Orange well worth a visit).

A PERFECT HOLIDAY LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
Hans and Ulrika, thanks for the hospitality and the fresh tomatoes and garlic. We loved staying at L’atelier for a week in Juli with our two children aged 5 and 8. They eat a lot of figs picked from the tree in the garden and did swim once or twice a day in the very clean swimming pool and enjoyed playing table tennis next to the swimming pool. We spent almost every evening at the terras enjoying a glas of wine. We recommend Le mas du Chene to anyone - with or without children - who wants a romantic and relaxing environment.

St. Lager-Bressac is also a good place to start visits in the area by car. We went to Sceautres, Alba-la-Romaine and the (free) Musee de Nougat at Montelimar. The Palace de bonbon et Nougat however was very expensive, old and a disappointment, even the children didn’t like it. We also went to Chateau Grignan, Viviers, Coux, the Gorges d’Ardeche and Avan d’Orgnac. The 130 meter elevator up through the rocks was a bit scary. We also recommend visiting the nearby small town St Vincente de Barres, very nice, no tourists and no tourist shops. Cruas was also impressive, although still in restauration. Your suggestion to dine at Le Poivre d’Ane in Coux was perfect: a clean and chique restaurant, with very good meals, child friendly and not expensive (60 euro for two adults, two children including drinks).

MAGNIFIQUE MAISON AU CALME

  • 5 of 5
Cette maison atypique est décorée avec goût. Le jardin privatif avec mobilier de jardin et barbecue, est spacieux, et la piscine est indispensable en été pour se rafraichir.
Le propriétaire est charmant et très accueillant. Il nous a fait bénéficier de ses succulentes tomates du jardin...
La maison est très propre, le linge est changé toutes les semaines. Le salon est très spacieux. Les seuls bémols sont une cuisine et une salle de bain très petites, pas de lave vaisselle (c'est pourtant agréable en vacances d'éviter la corvée de vaisselle), et les 2 chambres en enfilade avec un escalier très raide (attention aux enfants!).
Malgré tout notre séjour de 3 semaines était excellent. La maison est située en pleine campagne, idéal quand on recherche le calme.
Avec les enfants nous avons bien aimé la ferme aux crocodiles et le safari de Peaugres. A voir aussi les gorges de l'Ardèche (mais trop de monde en août), le pont du diable, le mont Gerbier du Jonc, Orange, Montélimar...
