In the Rhône-Alpes region, in the midst of a regional nature park, where the borders of the French departments of Ardèche and Rhône meet. In an area, near to the urban towns of Saint-Etienne and Lyon, which stands out courtesy of its climate and its mosaic landscape. This property is in a village perched on a rocky spur, flanked by two torrential rivers. An important town controlling the old road going from the Rhône Valley to that of the Loire in the Middle-Ages, it greatly suffered during the Wars of Religion but is now a peaceful, little village. It is 20 minutes from a slip road for the A7 motorway, an hour from Lyon (TGV train station and international airport), Valence and Saint-Etienne as well as 2½ hours from Geneva.
The salt loft
This stone building spans four levels, topped with a hip roof. The walls feature mullioned windows and wide arched openings. One of the entrances, directly reached from the narrow street, is set under the toothed quoins of a hipped corner of the building. Two levels are taken up by living space whilst the ground floor comprises a garage and cellars. The top floor is given over to the attics.
The little house
This little, stone house has two levels, each spanning approx. 38 m². Although its carcass has been restored, this house is in need of interior renovation works. The entrance door, on the narrow street, is flanked by dressed stone and a stone lintel, engraved with the year 1828. A medallion is set in the wall above the door. Inside, a stone font, set in the wall, bears witness to the presence of nuns at the time when this property housed a school. The room communicates with the inner courtyard via a few stone steps and a vaulted alcove, topped with a cross, is set in the wall. It is painted and represents a Virgin. An open gallery, supported by stone columns, once linked the upstairs of the little house to the salt loft. It could be reconstructed.
The past unpopularity of the premises where the salt tax was collected in no way detracts from its current attraction. Studded, wooden doors, the spiral stairway, impressive ceilings with their exposed beams and traces of the presence of nuns at a certain era all appeal to visitors, already highly appreciative of the steeply sloping site and the medieval village. The necessary renovation works will give new owners a free rein which includes the future of the little, self-contained house.
