La Petite Grange is perfect for two couples or a family. Our aim is to provide you with the perfect base from which to enjoy the beauty and activities of the Ardeche region.

La Petite Grange is a former barn and citerne (tank for collecting water for the vines) which we bought in 2005 and converted into our home and lived in for two years. The vaulted ground floor living, dining and  custom-built kitchen area and downstairs bedrooms and en-suite shower room have 1 metre thick walls and is very temperate neutral throughout the year.

Upstairs is a large, bright and airy bedroom with double bed and ample space for a cot. The en-suite bathroom houses a shower, toilet and washbasin.

Outside is a large terrace with table and chairs, shaded by a leafy fig tree and an awning. There is a grassy area with sun loungers, benches and parasol, shared with our guests from the adjoining gite, La Magnanerie.

La Petite Grange is the perfect base for exploring and enjoying the beautiful Ardèche and the Cevennes beyond.
