About the property

Bouvières is a small village with a population around 150 people. The characteristic old farm house, “Les Granges”, is situated a short way up the west slope of the valley, 500m from the village, with a beautiful view across the fields and the mountains. It is a very quiet and private place.

The house, fits 5 people, contains a living/dining room with a woodstove, a big kitchen with dishwasher and washing machine, big bathroom with shower, bath, sink and toilet. There are 2 bedrooms with 1 double-bed (1.40-2.00m), 2 single-beds (0.80-2.00m or one double-bed 1.60-2.00m) and one single bed (0.90-2.00m). The dining room connects to the terrace and garden with a fireplace and barbecue. There are also 2 mountain bikes.

If cycling or walking is your preferred recreation this is the right place; walking tracks abound, from a half hour stroll around the village to a full day slog up one of a number of surrounding peaks.

The Drôme is a beautiful district, close to the Provence at the south and the Alpes at the north of it, makes this area very interesting. High mountains, big gorges, lots of lavender, sunflower, wine fields and the charming villages with local markets make you want to stay here forever.

About Froukje Frohn

In 2007 I moved from Holland to the mountains of the Drôme, in Bouvières. Since them, each year from April till October I receive guests from all over Europe. It's a joy to live in this beautiful landscape.

Probably the most recreating spot in the world ...

  • 5 of 5

Well-equiped, clean property in beautiful surrounding far away from any commerce and industry. Located on 640 m above sea-level at the end of a steep dead-end way the farmhouse is surrounded by grassland. 500 meters away you can find a small shop with restaurant for getting your croissants and baguette in the morning; supermarkets are located in Nyons, Valreas or Dieulefit 20 km away. A hiking-trail tangents the site and leads to the upper crest. In the large garden several seats invite you for rest - in the shadow or under open sun. Having BBQ or sitting around the fire in the evening is very exciting, while the enormous number of stars above you twinkle. Inside both sleeping-rooms and the living-room are big enough for two couples. The kitchen is reasonable and in the separate stable you can find a washing-machine; here you can store beverages or bicycles too. The site is a perfect starting-point for bicycle-excursions through the drome-highlands ... or just to relax from the hard business-days at home. We surely will come back as soon as possible and thank again the most friendly hirer!

Letztes Jahr gestaltete sich die Suche nach einem Ferienhaus erstmal schwierig: mein Mann wollte am liebsten auf eine Alm und mich zog es nach Frankreich. Mit dem wunderschönen Bauernhaus "Les Granges" in Bouvieres ist es uns gelungen, beide Wünsche zu vereinen. Das Ferienhaus liegt oberhalb des hübschen Dorfes Bouvieres und bietet herrliche Ausblicke auf die umliegende Landschaft. Innen ist es liebevoll eingerichtet -besonders das Badezimmer ist dabei zu erwähnen! - aber auch in den anderen Räumen fühlt man sich sofort wohl. Draußen gibt es mehrere Terrassen, auf denen man essen, Feuer machen oder in der Sonne liegen kann, rundherum Blumen, Wiesen und ab und zu Kühe, deren Glocken auf's Schönste lä wie auf einer Alm!

Unten im Dorf kann man gut für ein Frühstück einkaufen, aber wir haben uns immer wieder gerne auf das Fahrrad geschwungen und sind die schöne Strecke nach Bourdeaux geradelt, um dort köstliche Croissants und knuspriges Baguette zu erstehen. Fahrrad fahren bietet sich in dieser Gegend einfach an!

Wir haben viele Ausflüge gemacht, oft auf gute Tipps hin von den sehr liebenswürdigen Vermietern, die uns unsere vielen Fragen mit großer Geduld beantworteten (vielen Dank dafür!!!). Man kann in der Gegend einsame Badeplätze an Flüssen finden, den quirligen Wochenmarkt in Nyons besuchen, unzählige Wanderungen unternehmen, kreisende Geier am Himmel beobachten und vieles mehr. Das Schönste aber war für uns die beeindruckende Stille und Ruhe und wenn man nach einem guten Abendessen in den unendlichen Sternenhimmel blickt, ist das Glück perfekt. Wir haben zwar nur eine Woche in Bouvieres verbracht, aber wir haben uns selten so gut erholt wie dort!

Lots of lovely old villages with markets, ‘brocantes’, restaurants and little shops nearby. At 500m grocery and bar/restaurant. Bigger supermarkets and bakery at 12km distance. Wine lovers are in the heart of the Côte-du-Rhône. Cities as Montélimar (nougat), Avignon, Nîme, Lyon and the Côte d’Azur are worth a daytrip. Swimming in lake at 30min drive and swimmingpools at 10min drive. There is a little stream behind the house for paddling and playing in the water. A colony of vultures at 19km distance. And not to mention the amount of possibilities in the Drôme as mountain climbing, biking, hiking, fishing and canoeing….
