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 Joyeuse area

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dès le début nous avons été bien accueilli à notre arrivée.

Nous avons pris rapidement nos marques dans ce petit cocon fort charmant.

Nous avons visité les villages alentours typiquement ardéchois et cela nous a beaucoup plût, même si la météo a été capricieuse.

Lovely little place

  • 5 of 5

The gite was clean and comfortable and the owners were very helpful. Located in a good spot in between Lablanchere and Joyeuese, it was nice to have a few provisions like tea bags, soaps, washing powder etc and the bottle of wine was appreciated! As there is an upstairs and downstairs gite, it's also ideal for 2 families holidaying together.

Great location for touring the Ardeche region. Lovely views from the terrace and pretty lounge, sunny, light , and everything provided for a comfortable stay. It was really helpful to get local knowledge and useful tips from Alan.

We'd go back.

Comfortable gite in stunning region

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this well appointed and pretty gite while attending a family wedding in the Ardeche last month. It has all the comforts of home, is clean and has a lovely setting with views through the vineyard to the mountains.

The gite is easy to find on the road between Lablachere and Joyeuse and is a good base to visit these and other local villages such as Les Vans, Aubenas and Baluzac. The not-to-be-missed prehistoric Cave de Pont d'Arc and the natural bridge of the Pont d'Arc over the Ardeche river are within an easy drive. Uzes, Nimes and the spectacular Pont du Gard aquaduct are also worth exploring.

The Ardeche is a stunning region, whatever your bag, be it watersports, fishing, walking, climbing, exploring the area or just relaxing in the sunshine with a glass of local wine, there's something for everyone. Alan and Jane are very welcoming hosts and can provide a wealth of information on their surrounding area. We had a great wedding and a good holiday here.
