What we like about this property

Hidden away in the southern part of the Ardèche, this home is a lovely combination of contemporary and old world. Built with eco sensibilities, its interiors have been created using natural and reclaimed materials, and its lavish gardens boast a pretty, natural pool. An idyllic vacation home for rent in France.

Description

We love the simplicity of this pretty gite in the south of France. Surrounded in one hectare of gardens and meadows, it is large enough to sleep up to eight guests, and is perfectly suited for relaxation and eating well. 

We love the elegant interiors with their brightly-colored, playful furnishings and objects. The large main space is made up of a living room with library and cool suspended fireplace, a dining room and an open gourmet kitchen.

A large window opens onto the terraces and the surrounding garden with its stunning naturally-filtered swimming pool. There is an outdoor kitchen/dining area on the shaded southern terrace, with four burners, a grill, a fridge and a stone sink, perfect for dinners on summer nights. 

The garden has distinct sections. The priest’s garden is planted with roses, peonies, dahlias and asters, surrounded in box trees, with a pond and old fruit trees with bird houses. The mill garden is drought-tolerant, with arbors of grapevines, climbing roses and a water garden. There are lounge chairs, hammocks and armchairs, as well as two ewes Dahlia and Mimosa, who serve as gentle lawnmowers.

The property was awarded the Ecogîte label by Gîtes de France for having a minimal impact on the environment. Materials used include brick, lime, plaster, locally-harvested wood and stones from Ruoms, a local quarry. Limestone paving stones and 18th-century terracotta tiles are recovered from old buildings, and interior doors are antique. The roof is insulated using bales of straw from the fields, the furnace heats the house using old trees from the orchards, and there are solar panels for heating water.

This is a really great vacation home for rent in France, perfect for large groups or families wanting to unwind in natural surroundings.

ADDITIONAL FEATURES 

For guests staying a week or more, a complimentary organic and locavore appetizer buffet is included.  The beds have organic Terre de Femme and Caravane bedding, bathrooms have Italian showers and stone sinks, as well as a basket of organic L’Occitane en Provence products. Linens and towels are provided. 

The kitchen has a five-burner stove, refrigerator, freezer, dishwasher and washing machine. Other amenities include a wine cellar, LED TV, DVD player, stereo with iPhone/iPod dock, wifi, and basic infant equipment.

AROUND

The house’s library has a collection of books on the natural history and heritage of the Ardèche. The owners recommend exploring the villages in the Cévennes, Romanesque churches and local museums. They can also recommend locations for outdoor sports like canyoning, rock-climbing, kayaking and hiking. Tours of their organic orchards are available. The house is located near several major tourist attractions: the Vallon-Pont d’Arc cave, the gorges of the Ardèche river and various historical villages. It is situated in the heart of the Natural Regional Park of the mountains of the Ardèche.

    Chère Annique et Michel

    What a lovely little treasury you shared with us in Vesseaux!
    We very much enjoyed the quietness, nature, the house, the walk trough the gorges, the village, the aperitif …

    Our stay in Mas de Saribou was for both of us and our children a very memorable stay.

    Many thanks for your hospitality and kindness,
    Erik, Elise, Carlijn, lucas

    We had the most wonderful week staying with Annick at Ecogite in the Ardeche! The home was absolutely stunning, and felt very cozy and welcoming. Annick was incredible and helped us book dinner reservations, plan winery tastings, and recommended lots of sites to see in the area. Avignon was a short 1.5 hour drive, and there are tons of small picturesque villages and hikes only a short drive from the house. Our favorite night was spent with Annick and her family after they invited us for an aperitif. She cooked incredible appetizers for us to share with organic wines. We highly recommend this stay and hope to return in the summer to enjoy the pool and outdoor kitchen!

    Thank you so much for such an incredible vacation! Ardeche has quickly become one of our favorite places – but your hospitality is what made it so special. You and your family have built such a beautiful home and we felt so welcomed the entire time. Each day was perfect on its own way thanks to your recommendations. And the aperitif night was our favorite! To be welcomed in to your home and share such delicious food, wine, and conversations is something very rare and special. Merci beaucoup! And we hope to see you next summer! Xo Allison and Tyler (and Sutter).

    We had a lovely family holiday here ! A very nice house, beautiful garden with pool, perfectly equipped kitchen (first time we ever saw in a vacation home), beds to dream and wonderful surroundings.
    ( The garden has a pond with waterfalls and a river in the backyard where you can start hiking trips) Michel and Annick are very cool hosts ! A lot of information was given and we enjoyed the positive vibe and hospitality. They have even showed us some nice local products, bio wine and dine.
    I know this is a vacation we won’t forget and for sure we will come back to Mas de Saribou !
    We love it!

    Truly memorable, unique and stunning week in a wonderful corner of France. The house is perfect for a group of friends to relax and explore the Ardeche region. The hosts, Annick and Michel, went beyond all expectations, providing local ‘know how’, delicious home-grown produce and excellent company. Can’t wait to return!
