About Irene Houlder
Originally from South Africa, we were looking for a place that felt like a home from home. A place for family and friends to meet. A place to retire to one day....... We found it!
Irene Houlder purchased this Apartment in 2000
Why Irene Houlder chose Saint-Pierreville
Having rented our fair share of gites and apartments around Europe, we knew exactly what we would be looking for to enjoy a great holiday. La Rastelayre had the potential to become such a place and we have been busy since 2001 turning it into the ideal holiday place.
What makes this Apartment unique
Peaceful and quiet surroundings with a river running through it. A fantastic place for nature lovers, but still close enough to go exploring and visiting places of interest in the surrounding area. Most of our visitors are just happy to stay and relax, and recharge their batteries! Kids of all ages love the river, whether boulder hopping, swimming, balancing on the ropes, fishing, paddling or making sand castles.

We had a fabulous week here, our only mistake was booking just one week not two. The property is charming, the owners are friendly and helpful plus they do a morning run to the bakers. The gardens are large and adjacent river and surroundings are lovely. The facilities are great, our children had a ball using the kayak and paddle board provided on the river, as well as playing boule, badminton, slack lining and in obviously splashing about in the pool. You didn't need to go anywhere, but there is a lot to do in the area if you have car. We would love to go back.
"YOU COULDN'T HELP BUT RELAX"
La Rastelayre sits in a most beautiful and tranquil of settings yet with fresh bakery and excellent restaurants only minutes away.
The accommodation is of a very high standard with new and clean furniture, excellent bathroom and kitchen facilities with every amenity you could need.
The owners/caretakers were delightful, kind and extremely helpful and maintained the property to its highest level. Would certainly recommend.

Many of our guests spend most of their time hanging around at La Rastelayre as it makes for a very relaxing holiday with beautiful surroundings and enough to do. However, if you are more the adventurous or active type, there is plenty to explore. For ice cream and sorbet lovers we highly recommend a visit to Le Moulinon’s Terre d’Adélice where you can have your all-time favourite flavour or try some very exotic ones like lavender, goat’s cheese or wasabi! All the ice cream is made on the premises and contain only the best, natural ingredients. Just browsing through the vast array of different flavours makes the trip worthwhile. La Rastelayre is situated near the towns of St Pierreville (2,5km), Albon (6,5km) and St. Sauveur-de-Montagut (12,5km). The area is known for it’s chestnuts, bilberries, goat’s milk cheese and scenic mountains. The Gluyere river provides many river pools for swimming, picnic spots, and fishing. The local cuisine is varied and inexpensive with many restaurants dotted around the local villages. Most villages have a small general store and practically all have a good baker with fresh bread baked daily. There is a large supermarket and other grocery stores available in St Sauveur-de-Montagut. For a hypermarket experience you will need to visit one of the bigger towns like Valence, Le Cheylard or La Voulte. There are also local markets where local farmers sell their fresh produce including vegetables and fruit, cheeses, sausages and meat, honey and various other local delicacies as well as clothing, fabric and table cloths, herbs and spices and wine. There are two ‘Syndicat d’Initiative’ (tourist offices) nearby, one in St.Pierreville and one in St. Sauveur-de-Montagut. They have a wealth of information on what is going on in the region. There are a number of museums, castles and ruins in the area that are open to the public during the summer months. Some of the things to do in the Immediate Surroundings: Ice cream and sorbet shop Canoeing on the Eyrieux river Wool museum Chestnut museum Markets Summer Festivals Cycling, swimming, hiking and walking Some of the things to do Further Afield: Canoeing on the Ardèche river and visiting the Ardèche gorges with their numerous caves Visiting towns such as Avignon, Montelimar, Nyons, Le Cheylard, Orange, Valence, Le Puy, Tain l'Hermitage …..
