Gite l'Hirondelle is located in the southern Ardèche, a department in the south-east of France, in the town of Vals-les-Bains, quarter du Bruentet. From the terrace you can see Mont Ventoux in the distance which is 123 km away.
The southern Ardeche is one of the greenest and most rural parts of France. The landscape is very diverse; There are many chestnut and fruit orchards, vineyards, quiet rural roads, oak and pine forests and rivers. The area has many natural wonders to be admired; Ray-Pic waterfall, Mon Gerbier de Jonc, the Pont d'Arc, Chier the Borée, le Pont du Diable and the beautiful Gorges de l'Ardeche. Also worth seeing are the caves L'Aven d'Orgnac and Grotte de la Madeleine.

In juni 2018 een week je “ gelogeerd” bij Anneke en Dominique. Na een warm welkom werden we rondgeleid door het huis en hebben we, met de andere gasten kunnen genieten van een lekkere welkomstmaaltijd.
We hebben een heerlijke week gehad, Mede dankzij de goede tips van Anneke en Dominique hebben we de “ hotspots” van de omgeving kunnen bezichtigen. We komen graag nog eens terug, een aanrader!

Geweldig mooie, charmante Gite midden in de Ardeche met een geweldig uitzicht over de vallei. Bij aankomst werden we door Anneke en Dominique opgewacht en stond er een heerlijke maaltijd voor ons klaar. Samen met de andere aanwezige gasten heerlijk gegeten en tips uitgewisseld. Vanuit het huis meerdere mooie wandelingen gemaakt en veel gefietst. Wat een geweldige omgeving! De gite was erg schoon en alles zat erop en eraan voor een comfortabel verblijf. En het bed sliep heerlijk!

Erg mooie natuur met veel dieren; krekels, schapen, zwaluwen, wilde zwijntjes en als je geluk hebt dan zie je een hert of een ree. Een hele gezellige gite, waar alles aanwezig is wat je nodig hebt, inclusief een erg goed bed. En erg aardige eigenaren!
