The apartment has a large living room and kitchen 32m2, two bedrooms of 13m2 and 11m2, both have double beds and a private bathroom.One bathroom has a bath, shower and WC, the other shower and separate WC The apartment is ideal for a couple or for two couples or a small group of friends. The gite has thick natural stone walls which ensure a pleasant climate inside even when it is hot!

From the large terrace you have a breathtaking view of the mountains and the valley, through which the rivers Ardèche, Volane and Fontolière run. A wonderfully tranquil spot to have your meals and to enjoy sunsets or starry skies later in the night. There is also a bistro located on the terrace (Cave) where you can have a drink or play games and listen to music. You even cook together here, upon request.
The gite is situated in a beautiful area with several walking paths , but it is not secluded. There are several lovely places along the river where you can swim. From our house it is a 10 minute drive to Vals-les-Bains where you find a butcher's, baker's, supermarket and terraces. So you don't have to drive in to town. Lively Vals has a picturesque centre with narrow streets and there is always plenty to do, especially in summer months (every Thursday and Sunday morning market, music, fireworks and much more). There is a fine swimming pool with natural water and a modern cinema. The range of cafes and restaurants (17) is large. Vals-les-Bains is known for its Spa and the healthy, pure spring water. In our gite you shower in mineral water!
Staying in this holiday home is enjoying a fantastic place with an unforgettable view! It is an ideal destination for guests who seek sun, peace and nature. No disturbing noises. The only thing you hear is the occasional sheep and lively hirondelles (swallows). With 300 sunny days per year and a Mediterranean climate, it is a lovely, welcoming holiday home from April to late October to enjoy in peace and quiet.

Heel veel dank voor de fijne vakantie. Dank ook voor de mooie gite en de goede zorgen. We hebben erg genoten van de gastvrijheid en de vriendelijkheid van de andere gasten. We gaan dat zeker missen en daarom komen wij zeker terug!

Visited in April 2018

Ons tweede verblijf in gite la Volane! Het voelt een beetje als thuiskomen… een warm gevoel. We worden telkens weer aangetrokken door het spel van licht en schaduw in de bergen. De vogeltjes, de krekels, het prettige gerinkel van de belletjes van de lammetjes. Prachtige wandelingen tussen de lentebloemetjes. Gezellig borrelen op ons mooie balkon met adembenemend panoramisch zicht. We willen hier niet weg. We komen hier tot rust. We komen zeker nog terug.
Bedankt Anneke en Dominique omdat we voor even deel mochten uitmaken van jullie kleine paradijsje en jullie gastvrijheid.

Visited in March 2018

Anneke en Dominique verwelkomden ons op een persoonlijke manier en zorgden ervoor dat we ons de hele week thuis voelden. We brachten een ontspannen tijd door in dit prachtige huis met dit absoluut adembenemende uitzicht over het prachtige heuvelachtige landschap van de Ardèche. Fietsen in het gebied met zeer weinig verkeer en wandelen met prachtige vergezichten was geweldig. We komen terug...!

Visited in July 2017

Op dit plekje voel je gewoon de rust en kracht van de natuur. Het dansen van de boomtoppen, de spelende zwaluwen maar vooral de stilte. Zelfs overdag zou je fluisteren om dit niet te verstoren. Gewoon kijken en genieten. Het sublieme uitzicht, de rustgevende stilte, de gastvrijheid van de eigenaars en de sfeervolle inrichting van de gite gaven ons een gevoel van ... ja, hier moeten we zijn. Kortom, dit smaakt naar meer.

Visited in July 2017

Wij zijn heel enthousiast over de prachtige ligging van de Gite met het ruime balkon en het schitterende uitzicht op de bergen van de Ardeche.
De inrichting van de Gite is bijzonder smaakvol met mooie moderne meubelen, een fijne slaapkamer met uitstekende bedden en een goed geoutilleerde keuken en ruime badkamer.
Dit alles maakte ons verblijf tot een plezierig geheel.
