Description

La Magnanerie

La Magnanerie is a compact dwelling (approx 45m2) for two or three people. Part of the old silk-worm loft, from which the house takes its name, has been transformed into a mezzanine to provide the sleeping accommodation. The remainder has been opened out and merged with the room downstairs, to create a large, light living area over 5m high at its tallest point. An open kitchen and a shower room located underneath the loft complete the low-level interior accommodation.

Outside, there are two secluded areas leading off the living area from which you can enjoy the sunshine. Start the day on the south-facing balcony, then move with the sun to the west, transferring to the stone-paved patio.

About the property

Mas de L'Elze

The Mas de L'Elze is a rambling collection of old stone buildings, clinging to a sun-drenched, south facing slope on the edge of the Ardechois Cevennes. In the past, these buildings served a multitude of purposes typical of the local countryside: a silk-worm loft, a drying and smoking area for chestnuts, a barn for storing hay and raising geese and ducks for the 'gavage'. Now, they have been lovingly transformed into a set of completely independent luxury houses, from which you can fully appreciate the beauty and tranquility of the surrounding countryside. There are 3 gites at L'Elze. Two - La Clede and La Magnanerie - are small, open plan houses for 2/4 and 2/3 people respectively, while the third - La Grange, is a larger house which sleeps 6-8. All are completely independent and have private terraces for al fresco dining. For large groups it is always possible to rent a number of the gites together.

All houses share a large 15x5m swimming pool and jacuzzi and gym and there is a free wi-fi connection to fast ADSL.

The local bar at just 2 minutes drive or a 20 minute walk does a great steak-frites and wonderful pizzas. But if you don't want to expend the effort just eat in! We'll provide a gourmet meal if you give us 24 hours notice.

The Mas de L'Elze is right in the middle of the Ardechois Cevennes - magnificent countryside with rolling hills and rugged mountains, dropping down to crystal clear rivers in deep gorges. L'Elze faces due south so there is always sunshine. We are located at 550m so even when it is hot there is usually a refreshing breeze.

L'Elze is situated roughly halfway between Largentiere and Valgorge, some 30 kilometres south-west of Aubenas, in the Department of the Ardeche. We are between Provence and the Cevennes and the scenery is wonderful. There are far fewer tourists than in either of these more well-known areas.

The newest thing to see in the Ardeche is the Caverne du Pont D'Arc, the recreation of the famous Chauvet Cave which has been designated a UNESCO World heritage Site. You can find full details at http://en.cavernedupontdarc.fr/ and you can buy your tickets online.

Other Activities: river canoeing, jacuzzi, Gym, bar, restaurant, table-football
