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.

About Irene Houlder
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
Why Irene Houlder chose St Pierreville
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.
What makes this apartment unique
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!
