Large house from the middle of the eighteenth century, with thick walls (80 cm) of stone, recently restored, listed in the prefecture, 150 m swimming (photo 1) in the river Chassezac which is accessible by road pedestrianized country.

Beautiful courtyard (patio) covered with vaults (ph.) And above, large old terrace (55 m2) in partial shade (ph.), Walk-in with the housing (ph.) And equipped for meals . Inside, the old stones have been highlighted (ph.), The pieces are of large dimensions and ceiling height (photos).

The ancient village of Chambonas (the medieval bridge, the Romanesque church and the castle are classified) and proximity (the city: Les Vans, the wood of Païolive Chassezac cornice ...) are described in the Green Guide : Rhône Valley

You can account for the exact position of the house,

and environment by clicking the "localization" and "satellite" on the ad. You will see the castle end of the garden "French" and the town road that leads to the swimming (150 m) between two fast (fun and safe) Chassezac (small beach pictures 1 and 18). The Chassezac keeps a good flow in summer (one practices the canoe there) and its wide and shaded banks are conducive to the games and pick-nick.


The house is built on 3 superimposed levels.

At the level of the court (see plan in PJ or photos 23 and 24), the former carriage shed (ceiling 4 m!) has been converted into a large room (which we call the annexe, photo 4), rustic in appearance but with full bathroom, and equipped with 7 single beds, table, sink, and refrigerator. It is very popular with young people to sleep together and also adults thanks to its freshness and warmth. Besides there is a utility room with washing machine.

These 2 rooms open on the same level on a courtyard covered with vaults and closed by a gate (photos 2). The opposite corner of the annex is occupied by the grand stone staircase (photo 4 and 5) which leads to the level 1 terrace.

At level 1, (shots in PJ or photos 23 and 24) the large reception room (photos 7, 8, 9), the kitchen and a small room (photo 10) open on the terrace above the ground floor. vaults. This beautiful old terrace (50 m² photos 10 and 11), is equipped with outdoor furniture for 15 people. It is the center of the life of the household, very pleasant and very frequented, the sun in the morning, half-shade from noon. We enjoy the view of the nearby castle, children play, we take meals. With a good night lighting it spends beautiful evenings (presupposing to lower her voice after 23 hours to meet the usual calm of the village). If the weather is bad (rare) the outdoor furniture can be returned to the living room which becomes a dining room.

The outdoor furniture consists mainly of 3 rectangular tables of the same dimensions, made of good quality plastic. When they entered the living room, these tables are placed end to end in alignment to easily accommodate 15 guests.

The adjacent kitchen has a thick oak table where you can install 6 guests (see plans) and a high chair.

At level 2, three beautiful bedrooms (photos 14, 15, 16, and 17) with complete sanitary in each except No. 2 which has only a sink and a bucket hygienic for the night. An extra child bed is available in each of bedrooms 2 and 3.

Note the height of the ceilings (3 m.)

In summary :

At the courtyard level the annex has 7 single beds.

Level 1 and 2 have 10 beds (including 1 bunk bed in room 1 and 1 mobile folding bed), plus 2 children's beds.

The house is equipped and can be proposed as a whole for 15 people.

Heating is provided by a pellet stove in the large living room. This powerful stove heats all parts of the house, including the floor. The annex does not have heating. For this reason it is commonly only used from April to November. When not in use extra mattresses are available and can be laid directly on the Level 2 Parquet, in addition to existing beds. In half-season the tenant can use at his choice extra mattress or annex .... or a mixed!

Pellets are available in the house and are offered at a price of € 4 for a 15 kg bag.

The duvets and blankets are made available but not the linen. In particular, you must bring two sheets per occupied bed (or sleeping bag) and pillowcases. However, we make available sheets and pillowcases made of thin, disposable and uncomfortable synthetic material (4 euros per bed).

The plans you will find on the photos or in PJ are accurate and precise. It shows in particular the position and size of the beds and the access routes in each room.

We advise you to print these plans. They will allow you to study your installation in this big house according to the needs of each one.

Notre propre château à côté du château

  • 5 of 5

Ancienne maison, bien équipée, lits confortables et très grande terrasse où nous avons pris tous nos repas (nous étions 10 personnes âgées entre 71 ans - 8 mois). La dame qui nous a accueilli, nous a donné beaucoup d'info utile sur les marchés et les alentours en générale. Baignade en face à 150m avec peu de monde (surtout le matin) - un conseil pour tout âge: achetez des bouées gonflables aux Vans et reposez-vous sur la rivière (courant pas trop fort en été). Seul inconvenient: pas de boulangerie dans le village, il faut aller aux Vans acheter le pain le matin - par contre, il y a une vente de légumes fruits 2x par jour à Chambonas.

Maison pas banale, typée.

  • 4 of 5

Cette vieille maison restaurée avec goût est accueillante pour les familles nombreuses. Nombreux sanitaires et chambres de bonne taille.L'annexe donne aux enfants un sentiment de liberté et la paix aux parents!!!

Un Point négatif : la circulation un peu bruyante ce qui est dommage car la terrasse est agréable.

Owner's Response: Merci pour votre commentaire. En effet la circulation automobile est difficile dans le village, à cause de l'étroitesse de la rue où deux voitures ne peuvent pas se croiser !! C'est un très vieux village.
