LA GRANDE CAVE

St Pierreville Apartment Rental Photos and Description

3 separate apartments of different sizes, beautiful surroundings, swimming pool

La Rastelayre is situated on the beautiful Gluyere river in the heart of the 'Parc naturel régional des monts d’Ardèche'. The original stone building, built in the late 1800’s, contains modern, comfortable self-catering apartments which have been completely refurbished.

Each apartment (gîte) has its own south-facing terrace where meals can be enjoyed in the relaxed style typical of southern France. While La Rastelayre has a large swimming pool for our guests to use, the river also offers its own selection of natural pools for swimming and paddling in. There are plenty of shady and sunny spots for picnics or just relaxing in the sun.

La Rastelayre is close to the picturesque medieval town of St. Pierreville. It is bathed in peace and tranquility while also being close to local attractions to provide a good holiday for every need. It is a wonderful area for walking, cycling, as well as touring the area by car.

Approximately 50km from Valence, La Rastelayre is best reached by car. It is situated along the D102, beside the Pont du Perrier, at an altitude of 480m. This charming old stone house is situated less than 5 minutes from St. Pierreville in the heart of the Ardéche 'Parc Regional', alongside the picturesque Glueyre river. It is surrounded mainly by chestnut woods and the Glueyre river, a class 1 category river, runs along the property. The river has many different types of fish including trout. Beavers and crayfish can also be found and there are many natural pools for swimming in. The beauty and tranquility of the surrounding hills add to the peacefulness that can be enjoyed there.

A warm welcome awaits you at La Rastelayre! The old 'cave' has been converted into two fully fitted luxury apartments which are cool, quiet and spacious. The old 'atelier' has been convert into one very large three bedroomed apartment with two full bathrooms as well as a fully fitted kitchen.

Our gîtes each have a south-facing terrace, kitchen with modern appliances, good, large beds and modern bathrooms.

Use of linen (bed and kitchen) is included as well as final cleaning and energy and water costs.

Washing machine, tumble dryer, iron and ironing board are available for use.

Babies: We have a high chair and a travel cot available for use.

Dogs are allowed, however, we have a limit to the number of dogs on the property. For this reason it must be agreed at the time of booking.

We have a NO SMOKING policy inside the gîtes.

Most gîtes has a cosy fireplace (closed system that burns gas) to warm up the cool evenings during the winter. (Extra charge for heating costs)

Originally from South Africa, we were looking for a place that felt like a home from home. A place for family and friends to meet. A place to retire to one day.......

Irene Houlder purchased this apartment in 2000

Having rented our fair share of gites and apartments around Europe, we knew exactly what we would be looking for to enjoy a great holiday. La Rastelayre had the potential to become such a place and we have been busy since 2001 turning it into the ideal holiday place.

Peaceful and quiet surroundings with a river running through it. A fantastic place for nature lovers, but still close enough to go exploring and visiting places of interest in the surrounding area. Most of our visitors are just happy to stay and relax!

Beautiful setting and total relaxation

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Aug 31, 2010
  • Stayed: Aug 2010
We have just returned from a weeks stay in the Grand Cave. The photos show the accommodation well and it was well suited for a family of 4 (in our case 2 younger children 8 &11). The river is idyllic for swimming, paddling, rock hopping or just watching. The hosts were attentive, friendly and relaxed. Currently there are 2 other properties which provides some company but no crowds.

The property is situated in the countryside but several villages can be reached by car in just a few minutes (e.g for the morning bread). The drives, walks and views are all interesting and for the more adventurous there are various canoeing options (including the 24km ardeche - full day trip)

I would really recommend this to someone who wants a quieter break in a stunning setting away in the countryside.

The possibilities at La Rastelayre and in the surrounding countryside are endless!

Many of our guests spend most of their time hanging around at La Rastelayre as it makes for a very relaxing holiday with beautiful surroundings and enough to do. However, if you are more the adventurous or active type, there is plenty to explore.

La Rastelayre is situated near the towns of St Pierreville (2,5km), Albon (6,5km) and St. Sauveur-de-Montagut (12,5km). The area is known for it's chestnuts, bilberries, goat’s milk cheese and scenic mountains. The Gluyere river provides many river pools for swimming, picnic spots, and fishing.

The local cuisine is varied and inexpensive with many restaurants dotted around the local villages. Most villages have a small general store and practically all have a good baker with fresh bread baked daily.
