About the property

Lovers of old stones, quiet, wilderness pool, Chauvet cave


Le Mas d'Aval, ancient hamlet extends its four hectares on the hillside. Its charm is its architecture, its old stones, its magnificent view of the southern Ardèche ... and tranquility.

Three farms restored silkworm, where we realized our house (renovation 2009-2010) and our home. Taking care to preserve the authenticity of places: sandstone slabs or terracotta floors, whitewashed, we kept the original volumes. The real luxury these homes: space.

To further enhance your comfort, we have paid particular attention to the choice of materials used in the renovation.

From discovering the hills and woods of the Ardèche Cévennes via the GR that passes in front of Mas a backpack or choose lazing in the shade of the property of trees ...

Nous reviendrons !

  • 5 of 5

Maison idéalement située en Ardèche, à l'écart de la foule et des alignements de magasins qui vous vendent leur artisanat typique ardéchois estampillé "made in China".

Idéal pour des vacances au calme et/ou en famille dans des paysges sauvages et préservés. On s'attend presque à voir débouler un chevalier en armure dans cette bâtisse (presque un petit château) aux fondations gallo-romaines et qui abritait jadis un maréchal d'Empire. La maison est très bien équipée et très fonctionnelle. Ajoutez-y des propriétaires charmants et très dicrets, pleins de bons conseils et vous avez là l'adresse rêvée pour des vacances dépaysantes.

A refaire..

Très bonne impression générale

  • 4 of 5

Tout d'abord un grand merci à Florence et Pierre pour leur accueil et leurs conseils! Le gîte est spacieux (nous étions neuf), très bien rénové et situé dans la campagne au pied du vieux village de Tauriers. Nous avons aussi profité de la terrasse couverte, et de la tonnelle pour prendre nos repas; la piscine a aussi été appréciée (malgré un soleil timide). Je recommande donc ce gîte situé près de Vallon Pont d'Arc et des magnifiques gorges de l'Ardèche.

Gite très spacieux au calme idéal pour profiter des multiples sites touristiques de la région tout proche et revenir se ressourcer dans le grand jardin ou boire un verre sous la terrasse abritée! Petits et grands avons beaucoup apprécié. Merci à Florence et Pierre pour leur accueil!

Ne pas hésiter!

La maison est superbe, parfaitement équipée, le cadre magnifique. Tout pour faire oublier que le soleil n'était pas toujours au rendez-vous pour ce petit séjour automnal en famille! Merci

Comfortable and spacious

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed very much this nice location, close to the very nice Largentière, pitturesque old villages and surroundings.

Also not far from the moutains, the pleasant rivers, (ecologic) vineyards, canyons and fruitstalls along the roads. Last but not least the excellent restaurants (e g panorama La Tour Brison/Sanilhac). Lets not forget the very complete and spacious house with garden/pergola, swimmingpool with the kind and service oriented family providing their house with everything you need/want and which protected us very thick brickwalls against the very hot days and kept the nights pleasant. We really thank the family Smajewski! They fullfilled all that they promised; inside and outside!
