A lovely relaxing place

  • 4 of 5

The house is comfortable and charming. The owners live next door and are friendly, hospitable and friendly. We enjoyed the pool, the shaded terrace and the locality. Lablachere, its shops and the Sunday market are 5 minutes away; and the scenery is superb. Four of us had a great time for two weeks.

Definition of supercalifragilisticexpialidocious in English:

Extraordinarily good; wonderful:

This is exactly how La Grange de Mamouchka in Lablachere is every time we visit. We've stayed 3 times in the last 4 years and it never fails to amaze us. Jean-François and Christiane are delightful and always make us feel so welcome.

We will be going back to stay for many years to come and we highly recommend that you visit too.

Amazing cottage, excellent hosts, perfect holiday.

  • 5 of 5

The perfect Ardeche holiday cottage!

Christiane and Jean-François are amazing and very friendly! On arrival we received a very warm welcome from them and they gave us a basket of freshly picked cherries and a lovely bottle of red wine. During our stay they were very helpful in suggesting places to go, sites to see, markets to visit, walks to do and the best places to canoe. On our last but one night Jean-François cooked us a lovely French desert and Christiane gave us some more fresh cherries that had been picked from the trees in the garden that afternoon.

The cottage is delightful and perfect in every way! It has charming character with a modern twist. The stones walls, tiled floor, wooden stair case, cosy living room area and feature fire place blend perfectly with the modern open plan kitchen area. There is a large wooden dining table, perfect for lavish French dinners, and the living room area has a TV and DVD player with a selection of great films to watch. Upstairs you have two bedrooms - a double bedroom with an en-suite bathroom and a twin bedroom, also with an en-suite. The bed in the large double bedroom where we slept was very comfortable! All in all the cottage is exceptionally well maintained, very clean and has everything you need for your holiday.

The pool and pool area is excellent - great for cooling off on a hot summers day, or lounging about reading books or eating lunch. We even spent a few evenings star gazing by the pool side with a glass of wine. We also ate outside on the lovely terrace at the back of the cottage a couple of times.

As for the Ardeche area of France, its beautiful. If you haven’t been before you absolutely have to go! The mountains, valleys, rivers and gorges are breathtaking. We went walking and hiking every day. There are walks you can do right from the cottage or a short drive away you can go on hikes down into the Gorge de l'Ardeche, up into the mountains or down through valleys and vineyards. We even tried canoeing for the first time on the Chassezac river through some amazing gorges. There are also lots of historic sites and ancient caves (and cave paintings) to see and the little villages throughout the Ardeche are beautiful, with lots of great markets for delicious fresh food.

I highly recommend Christiane and Jean-François and their holiday cottage in Lablachere, Ardèche. We can't wait to go back!

La grange de Mamouchka est une adorable petite maison, très confortable et décorée avec beaucoup de goût.

Sa situation en ardèche méridionale est parfaite pour découvrir tant les gorges de l'Ardèche que de très jolis petits villages à l'entour.

Un grand merci aux propriétaires, Christiane et Jean-François, qui ont su nous donner de précieux conseils pour nos balades et nous ont accueilli chez eux chaleureusement pour un partage très convivial de produits locaux.

Un calin et une pomme virtuelle à Olive (l'âne de la propriété)

Très bonne semaine donc, et je recommande fortement cette location!

Perfekte Ferien in einem tollen Haus in wunderbarer Umgebung mit liebenswerten Gastgebern

  • 5 of 5

Wir, eine kleine Familie mit einer siebenjährigen Tochter, haben gerade zwei wunderschöne Wochen in der „Grange de Mamouchka” verbracht. Das Haus, eine sehr schön restaurierte, stil- und liebevoll eingerichtete alte Scheune mit einem Ausgang auf ein wunderbares Schattenplätzchen, von dem ein paar Schritte zum herrlich angelegten Pool führen, bietet alles, was man im Urlaub braucht, um sich in einer naturnahen, sehr ruhigen Umgebung wohlfühlen zu können.

Zu der angenehmen Atmosphäre, die diesen Ort umgibt, tragen auch die sehr sympathischen und liebenswerten Vermieter Christiane und Jean-François bei, die in einem Haus auf demselben Grundstück leben. Unaufdringlich, bei Fragen oder Wünschen aber immer ansprechbar und mit vielen Anregungen haben sie unseren Aufenthalt sehr freundlich begleitet. Die Treffen zum Aperitif mit netten, zwanglosen Gesprächen in einem Gemisch aus Französisch, Englisch und Deutsch haben uns viel Freude bereitet und das Gefühl vermittelt, neue freundschaftliche Verbindungen geknüpft zu haben.

Die Möglichkeiten für Unternehmungen und Ausflüge in der Umgebung sind hier beinahe unbegrenzt: Höhlenbesichtigungen, Kanufahrten, Wanderungen, Schlendern über die Märkte in den umliegenden kleineren Ortschaften und und und … Unserer Tochter werden vor allem das Baden in den Schluchten der Chassezac, das Wandern und Klettern im zauberhaften „Bois de Païolive” (beides in nur wenigen Autominuten erreichbar) und der Ausritt auf Olive, dem geduldigen, kleinen Esel der Vermieter, in unvergesslicher Erinnerung bleiben.

Ein rundum perfekter Urlaub! Wir werden sicher gerne wiederkommen!
