About the property

Take part in different activities in a quiet park, in the centre of the village.

Just a few metres away from the village and river, you will find a large stone building divided into 9 very different gites. This location is very private and features access to a shaded park, a large sunny pool, a petanque court, and many different play areas for children. Each unit has its own private space with barbecue, and the building boasts a game room, free internet, and private parking spaces in the inner courtyard.

About Pierre Benet

I am in my thirties, a former Gorges de l'Ardeche natural reserve employee who really enjoys nature sports (running, hiking, canyoning, long-distance treks, etc.), and I am the grandson of Simone Benet, the owner of the property and one of the first people to propose the idea of renting gites in Vallon-Pont-d'Arc 35 years ago. I also enjoy interacting with people and having them get to know this region and its undiscovered areas.

Pierre Benet purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Pierre Benet chose Vallon Pont d'Arc area

My grandmother always believed that it was a shame that such a beautiful area like Vallon-Pont-d'Arc was not better known. Now, thanks to the internet, that aspiration can be realized.

What makes this cottage unique

Located in the very centre of the village, next to shops and activities (tourism office, supermarket, river, etc.)

Large old park

Bus stops directly across

Large entirely renovated pool

Calm and quiet park where you can enjoy an aperitif while playing a game of petanque

Shared game room, air-conditioning in the summer, and TV - very relaxing

Gites très sympa

  • 5 of 5

Fidèle locataire depuis 15 ans, je viens tous les ans à Pâques pour le raid de Vallon Pont D'Arc. Je n'ai donc malheureusement jamais profité de la piscine mais des marmittes des canyons locaux pendant le raid ;-)

Les gites se sont vraiment améliorés depuis que Pierre les a repris.

A conseiller !

Nous avons passé une semaine dans le gite numéro 8 (rez de jardin, le seul avec accès direct sur le grand parc avec piscine, terrain de pétanque, tables et barbecues...) et vraiment nous n'avons rien à redire!

L'endroit est très calme, et idéalement situé dans Vallon Pont d'arc, tout peut se faire à pied, le marché a lieu devant la maison et vous pouvez même aller faire vos courses à pied (Intermarché à 100m).

Bonne ambiance entre les locataires des différents gites et grande sympathie du propriétaire.

Le seul tout petit point négatif que nous avons pu relever est la literie quelque peu vieillissante de notre gite (les autres en ont des plus récentes) mais ce petit détail ne nous a pas gâché les vacances et sera peut être changé d'ici nos prochaines vacances, car nous avons été séduits par le lieu et y retournerons avec plaisir!

L' Ardèche...Vallon ! nous apprécions cet endroit depuis plusieurs années. Nous y revenons régulièrement depuis 5 ans, et sûrement encore pour quelques années...Et pour cause, nous avons trouvé le gîte idéal, chez Pierre... toujours souriant, il se met en quatre pour vous accueillir et rendre ses gîtes agréables, confortables, un super jardin où il fait bon se reposer et profiter du soleil au bord de la piscine.
