About the property

Manoir in Lalevade d'Ardeche, Nr. Aubenas, Rhone Alpes - Upper Ardeche Valley, 17th Century Manor, Ideal for two Families Sharing

On the edge of the village of Lalevade, with mountain views all round and a stream flowing through the 1.4 hectare walled garden, this fine, large 17th century manor house is a fabulous place just to relax in. Or use it as a base for exploring the Ardeche river valley and mountains. Great outdoor activities - kayaking and river swimming, hill-walking, cycling round the Ardeche's vineyards and famous villages. For the tourist, Avignon is just over an hour. Or just spend a week by the pool soaking in the sun and the view. The large accomodation offers everything you need. Ideal for two families sharing, but very comfortable for fewer, with one bedroom wing not used.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Best holiday ever - all from grandparents to young children thoroughly enjoyed themselves.Terrifying jumping off Pont du Diable, but we did it!"

"elegant and superbly well-arranged surroundings - delighted to find a well-tuned Yamaha grand in the Salle de Musique"

"Truly splendid week in Fabrias - visitors coming back were as delighted again as new arrivals. We will be in touch again about a third visit. A magical place."
