A historic building in the heart of a protected hamlet
Our 17th century house, completely and carefully renovated, was offered for holiday rental in June 2019. Roof in lauzes and walls in sandstone, it is classified 4**** (certification Atout France™) and 4 épis (Gîtes de France™) and is labelled “Gîte de charme”.
Situated in the commune of Chambonas, the hamlet of Les Sielves is made up of a dozen houses and only 3 inhabitants year-round; its exceptional buildings have earned it classification as a heritage protection zone.
Offering unrivalled tranquillity, this hamlet is within easy reach (4 km) of the small town of Les Vans and all its shops.
An exceptional level of comfort and facilities
4 years of total restoration, respecting traditional techniques, have enabled us to bring to this house all the comfort of the 21st century and an incomparable level of equipment: 4G mobile networks, Wifi, UHD TV, Blu-ray players, Bluetooth speaker, plancha and barbecue, wood stove, efficient central heating, but also… a plethora of kitchen equipment, toys for children and games for adults, baby equipment, …
Under the Ardèche summer sun or by the fireplace in winter, we can receive our guests all year round.
A large gîte, multiple spaces to meet with family or friends
Structured around a vast interior terrace on two levels, the various residential buildings offer our guests numerous living spaces to meet up or, on the contrary, to isolate themselves according to the mood of the moment.
Sheltered from the hot summer sun, the large covered terrace is ideal for convivial meetings around the large plancha or barbecue.
The large panoramic lounge allows everyone to meet around the large UHD TV or the wood stove offering a 180° view. A second lounge/library offers books, guides and board games.
Don’t forget our year-round guests, 3 charming goldfish in the pool on the lower terrace; you’ll have to think about feeding them: a task usually claimed by the youngest of our guests.
