Pascal & Marc

Entirely and carefully renovated, this 17th century (1661) stone building, classified 4**** (and 4 “épis” Gites de France), offers the best level of comfort and equipment (4G mobile networks, WiFi, TV, blu-ray player, plancha, barbecue, wood stove, efficient central heating…) and allows us to receive our guests all year round.

Structured around a large two-storey indoor terrace, the various residential buildings offer our guests multiple living spaces to relax or, on the contrary, to isolate themselves according to the mood of the moment.

The 5 bedrooms, which can accommodate 11 people (12 on request with an extra bed), each have a shower room and a private WC. For the greater comfort of our guests, sheets and towels are provided as well as foutas for the pool.

The magnificent swimming pool area, exclusively reserved for our guests and offering a breathtaking view of the valley, guarantees extraordinary days of relaxation around the large flat-bottomed pool with submerged beach, the bowling alley or leaning against the pergola protected bar.

Ideally located in the heart of the southern Ardèche and its many rivers, you can enjoy, in the immediate vicinity, its exceptional sites (Gorges de l’Ardèche, Pont d’Arc, Grotte Chauvet, Aven d’Orgnac…), its sporting activities (canoeing down the gorges, mountain biking, hiking, horse riding…), its villages with outstanding character (Balazuc, Labeaume, Naves, Banne…) and its producers’ and artists’ markets…

Come and visit us ; you will soon be, like us, “Amazed by the Ardèche“… and don’t forget to consult our Guestbook!

To make your holiday easier : a DRIVE supermarket to do your shopping, a caterer at home to organize a birthday meal, electric mountain bikes directly available at the Gîte, Canoe trips 5 min. away from the house: Consult our referenced partners. We have tested their services ; they will give you satisfaction.

Pool area

Large private swimming pool with panoramic view

The huge private swimming pool area at the back of the house, benefits from a panoramic view facing south over the valley towards the villages of Chambonas and Les Vans.

The large flat-bottomed pool (9m x 3m50 – depth 1m35) allows the whole family to enjoy the water during the warm sunny afternoons of the Ardèche summer. An immersed beach (25cm) also allows the little ones to enjoy the freshness of the water under the supervision of their parents.

To guarantee the best bathing comfort and because of its ecological and bacteriological qualities, we have chosen an automatic salt treatment in preference to the addition of chemical chlorine.
The salt electrolysis, controlled by an automatic regulation, ensures the creation and diffusion, directly in the water, of natural chlorine ensuring a perfect disinfection of the pool.
All the dosages are checked weekly between each rental; an additional check is also carried out every Wednesday morning.

11 sunbathing spots and a few Tropeziennes will invite everyone to some well-deserved moments of relaxation to rest after the more sportive hikes offered by our beautiful Ardèche.

At the end of the afternoon, the bowling pitch will allow intense games of pétanque or Finnish Mölkky skittles (provided).
The small bar under the pergola has a refrigerator to keep the cold drinks quickly available when the sun becomes intense.

PLEASE NOTE: Particular attention has been paid to child safety with 2 simultaneous devices :
– a peripheral barrier with a safety gate in accordance with the NF P90-306 standard.
– an immersed roller shutter in compliance with standard NF P90-308 .

Swimming pool opening periods : from the beginning of May to the end of September with possible extensions depending on the weather.

    Specific clause “Money-back guarantee” Covid-19 (addendum to the lease contract)

    In the event of cancellation by the client, the lessor undertakes to reimburse 100% of the sums paid:

    • If the client is unable to go to the rental location due to general regulatory provisions put in place by the State and related to the fight against Covid-19 (confinement of the region of origin or travel ban).
    • If the lessor is obliged to give up the holiday rental because of general regulations put in place by the State related to the fight against Covid-19 and applying to the place of stay (access restrictions, prohibition to rent, etc.).
      PLEASE NOTE: the coverage of these 2 events allows our clients to be secure on the “mass” risk which is never covered by cancellation insurance contracts; the latter cover individual risks (COVID positivity, illness…): see below

      However, this clause does not apply to other reasons of impediment which the lessee may invoke (closed tourist attractions, personal concern, accident, illness, individual confinement, quarantine on return, etc.) or which may be the subject of cancellation insurance. Where applicable, the general terms and conditions of the contract apply.

    Special case of foreign customers (additional specific risk of border blockade) :

    • For a cancellation up to 6 weeks before the beginning of the stay, a 100% refund of the stay is guaranteed if the client is unable to reach the rental location for one of the 2 following reasons: confinement of the region of origin or border blockade.
    • In the event of cancellation less than 6 weeks before the start of the stay, the 100% refund of the stay is only guaranteed if the gite is re-rented.


    Resort Civil Liability: Mandatory, the rental contract requires a “Resort Civil Liability” insurance coverage that covers, during your stay, any damage caused to the premises or to third parties. This clause may or may not already be included in your multi-risk home insurance policy: check with your insurer.
    Cancellation: Optional insurance to cover the risk of a hazard that would jeopardize your availability for the booked dates.

    For one or the other of these insurance coverages (2 options), we have negotiated preferential conditions accessible to guests of the “Terrasses des Sielves”.
    Direct contact: CHAPKA Insurance’s TRANQUIL’OC Contract (AIG Group).
    Update COVID-19 to September 14, 2020: the contract now covers the insured, his or her spouse or a member of his or her family as well as any person living in the same household in the event of a positive COVID-19 diagnosis before the departure date and preventing him or her from travelling.
