This property is in the south of the French department of Ardèche, along one of the old roads between the Rhône Valley and highest points of the Auvergne region, on the outskirts of the Ardèche mountain regional nature park, midway between the Ardèche mountains where the river Loire originates and the Ardèche gorges where the natural Pont-d'Arc stone bridge is classified as a World Heritage site by Unesco. It stands at the foot of a rocky promontory, on which a small town has grown up from a 12th century castle. The hilltop town abounds in narrow, picturesque streets along which historic residences sometimes house cafés. It also hosts a lively, fragrant and colourful market every Saturday morning; a must for enthusiasts of local wines and produce.
An hour from Montélimar and its TGV train station. Avignon and its international airport are less than 2 hours away whilst the Mediterranean Sea is 2½ hours away.
The 18th century residence
This stone building features two sections, one spanning four levels and the other spanning three. The main facade, featuring the entrance, has been lime rendered and several rows of overhanging cornices precede the roofs. A central flight of stone steps goes up to a vast terrace, running the width of the building.
The guest house
This stone guest house stands at a distance from the residence, separated by “elephant feet” plane trees. This section of the parklands has an independent entrance via one of the property’s sets of gates. This house spans approx. 300 m² of living space over two levels. It is accessed via stone steps leading up to a covered terrace. It has been converted into three separate flats so as to accommodate numerous guests. Two flats, respectively spanning 35 and 65 m² are on the garden level. Another flat, spanning approx. 200 m² is laid out on the ground floor as well as the upper floor under the rafters. Each of the flats has its own terrace, guaranteeing privacy.
The swimming pool and the garden
The parklands extend over approx. 5,500 m². Fully enclosed, they comprise three separate entrances. These landscaped parklands, planted with trees over one hundred years old, include mimosa and oleander bushes as well as, palm trees, cleverly laid out around ornamental pools. Safety fencing encloses an area of approx. 300 m² surrounding a large, 10x5 m swimming pool with a wide deck. Heated by a heat pump, this area is much sought-after in a climate, ideal for outdoor activities. It has a superb view of the town castle.
The view of the little town, extending over its promontory with a castle and bell-towers, exudes an Italian air behind a row of cypress trees. Just like this impressive residence which appears to stand on a vast terrace where an arbour provides shade from the sun and where an old veranda protects from the cold. Its well laid out parklands, part of which is building land, are bordered by a canal. The insides have been fully renovated, including the three flats in the annex house which could immediately be used for a bed & breakfast activity.
