About Jane

We converted this barn nearly 30 years ago into what is now our much loved family holiday home . We have 4 children who have spent many Summers here and we all love the house and area and are still exploring new places after nearly 30 years .

Jane purchased this farmhouse in 1987

Why Jane chose Salazac

Beautiful setting in quite rural Provence - with it's fantastic markets for local produce for wonderful barbecues and long lazy evenings outside . Wonderful wine tasting all around.

What makes this farmhouse unique

Only 10 minutes to the impressive Ardeche river with amazing gorges and fantastic walks and canoeing trips. Many day trips in every direction to the med coast, Cevennes national park and historical sights of Nimes, Arles, Orange, Vaison la Romaine, Avignon etc

Fabulous Central Base

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from spending two weeks at this great property. The owner has carefully retained all the positive features of an old stone farmhouse but has combined them with the essentials of modern living. On arrival, the house was warm and clean. Little details, such as there being washing up liquid, tablets for the dishwasher and washing machine, sufficient toilet rolls, ice in the freezer, clean tea towels, wi-fi, all added up to make a very homely welcome to this lovely property. The beds are comfortable, as is the lounge furniture. Having visited over the Easter holidays, the evenings were chilly and it was lovely having the wood burning stove rather than having to use the electric heaters. The kitchen is well equipped and the knives are sharp!- plenty of cookware, crockery and glassware. A fantastic base for a relaxing holiday or to explore the area - there are lots of leaflets of places to visit and walks to try, both from the house and further afield.

Lovely setting and a challenging Ardeche!

  • 4 of 5

Lovely setting although the outside of the property looked a little unloved. We had to clean the algae off the swimming pool steps and some of the slabbing around the pool was unfinished.

The inside of the house had a lovely kitchen and sitting area. The bedrooms badly needed an update with the curtains and sheets. Although the floors and kitchen surfaces were clean there were many areas which had either dust or cob webs.

When we arrived the weather was relatively warm, However the next three days were quite cool (never above 20 C). Night temperatures dropped as low as 5C during this period. Unfortunately during these evenings the sitting area became cool and we had to ring the owner to find out where the logs were for the log burner. At night the bed linen was inadequate for these low temperatures and we had to request duvets which were delivered promptly. This made the first few nights less comfortable than we would have liked.

With temperatures on the low side we postponed our kayaking down the Ardeche.

Instead we visited one of the many sites of interest. We spent a day in Avignon visiting the Palais des Papes and the Pont Saint Benezet. Well worth the journey of 50 minutes.

With the weather improving we hired kayaks and did a relatively short journey from Vallon Pont d' Arc down to Chames. The kayaks were of the sit on type so we got thoroughly soaked. The following day having found our river legs we went for the biggy and kayaked from Chames to St Martin d'Ardeche. This was a mind blowing experience which I do not think I will be repeating. At one stage there appeared to be more people in the water than in kayaks. I was little surprised at the lack of information given by the hire companies - virtually none. The map provided went soggy after the second rapid and hence we had no means of foreseeing the hazards. There were occasions when after seeing the hazard on the rapid it was too late to take avoiding action because of the strength of the current. No crash hats were provided and no tips for survival.

We then took it easy for a few days, visiting local vine yards and eating out. All very enjoyable.

Why give it a 4 star - plenty to do in a beautiful environment; hence the title.

Rustic retreat

  • 5 of 5

The house in Salazac is perfectly placed within the region to visit all the key sights and has restaurants and shops within a short drive . This is a particularly beautiful part of the Ardeche with such little occupation and light pollution you can see the Milky Way spread across the night sky right above the Gite . If you are looking for urban luxury and fitted furniture this is not the place for you , comfy and rustic best describes this house along with a rather large private pool . If you have a romantic soul and can see the joy in ancient stone walls and enjoy the silence only broken by an evening breeze this is the place for you .

Great holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful holiday at Salazar.. The house was well appointed and the pool was great. We very much enjoyed our dinners outside by candlelight and fantastic walks from the house with stunning views . There is plenty to do in the area and the Ardeche gorges are less than 10 minutes away . Canoeing down the Ardeche river is quite spectacular. We will definitely be booking another stay in the near future !

Wonderful relaxing stay!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house (and weather!)- despite Jane's great advice of many places to visit nearby/ things to do, my kids couldn't tear themselves away from the pool! The house was clean, well equipped and fit my family of 6 very comfortably. We hope to return next year!
