Overview

Ste Marguerite Lafigere Castle Rental Photos and Description

13th century medieval castle, 5 min away from the village of Thines and swimming

In the castle of 210 sq.m with:

- 2 bedrooms and 1 shared bathroom

- 1 master bedroom with en-suite bathroom

- 1 living room of 50 sq.m with kitchen corner

- 1 kitchen/dining of 50 sq.m being finished

- 1 library of 30 sq.m

- 1 south-facing terrace overlooking the valley.

The castle is being restored; we maintained its authenticity and its charm. Isolated from the noise and from pollution, you will spend a relaxing stay enjoying the activities that the region offers: canoeing, horse riding, fly-fishing, hiking, visit of the typical Cevennes villages.

In July and August, in Thiens and the surrounding villages, there are many events: exhibitions, theatre, dancing, garage sales, festivals, etc.

There are also good restaurants where to taste the regional specialities, as well as excellent wine.

5 min away on foot there is a swimming corner in a river that flows on the granite and creates natural pools and slides.

The 2 bedrooms with shared bathroom have both 1 bed of 140 and, in one of them, there is a cot of 90 and in the other one, in the adjoining tower, a cot of 90. The bathroom has a shower, a wash basin and toilet.

The master bedroom of 40 sq.m has a large bed of 180 with independent mattresses and electric motor.The en-suite bathroom has a shower, 2 washbasins and 1 enclosed WC.

About Jean-François Piazzoli

I'm a retired of 67 years and I worked in the pharmaceutical industry. When I retired I had to find an activity. The restoration of this 13th century medieval castle satisfied all my needs.

Practically, when you restore a castle, in ruins as this, there is no ready recipe; every time you have to think for find the best solution, or the least bad; and is this continuous consideration that is exciting.

Jean-François Piazzoli purchased this castle in 2003

Why Jean-François Piazzoli chose Ste Marguerite Lafigere

When I stopped my activity I wanted to change region, have more sun and especially be quite. And you will see why here is the right place.

Additionally it is a 13th century medieval castle!!!

What makes this castle unique

First of all, the environment: in a valley of the Cévennes that descend from the plateau to 1100 m to reach the plain on Vans.

The castle is slightly in height in relation to this valley e the view is fantastic.

Then, the castle itself with all its past; defensive fortress inhabited by the lords of Longueville since 1260.

Finally, it is quiet. Don't come here for dancing, you will be disappointed. You also should plan your shopping, because the first mall is 30 min away.

La vie de château

  • 5 of 5

Situé au cœur de la montagne ardéchoise, à l'ombre des châtaigneraies, ce magnifique château médiéval superbement restauré par le propriétaire lui-même possède un charme et un confort auxquels il ne manque rien. Équipé de façon moderne, il garde son authenticité, avec ses chambres vastes et lumineuses, ouvertes sur la vallée, ses salles de bains complètes, sa bibliothèque bien garnie dans une pièce à l'atmosphère "d'époque", ses deux grands séjours confortables et sa terrasse si propice aux petits déjeuners. Ce n'est pas un château de poupée ou de princesse mais une solide bâtisse dont Frankie vous racontera l'histoire. Avec Michèle, il saura aussi vous faire partager leur amour de l'Ardèche et tous deux vous accompagneront découvrir ses richesses touristiques et gastronomiques (Ah les omelettes aux cèpes !) Plus que des propriétaires, ils sont devenus de vrais amis. Le château est accessible à tous et nous recommandons vivement cette location au rapport qualité prix exceptionnel.

Near the village of Thines, listed historical monument, and its 13th century Roman church, the medieval castle of Longueville is located 5 min away on foot from the Thines River and swimming corners. We are here, in the Monts d'Ardèche Regional Park where there are many hiking paths leaving from the house.

We are also 30 min away from Vans and the canoeing departures on the Chassezac river, and 1 hour away from Vallon Pont d'Arc and the descent of the Gorges de l'Ardèche.

In proximity there is also the 'Stevenson trail''.
