Maison de Vacances – St Julien de Gua
Atmospheric and very nicely situated holiday home with gorgeous view!
Tasteful, recently restored house (partly an old dovecote) with a lovely raised garden in the characteristic village of Saint Julien du Gua. Superb view over the valley. Definitely recommended! Your holiday home is located just before the quiet village of Saint Julien du Gua. Restaurant (open in the summer), bakery, bar/tobacco shop and grocery store are within walking distance, very handy! There is also a (free) tennis court, jeu-de-boules court and playground for children. In the house, you will find authentic elements dating back to the 17th century, such as the bathroom in a cave. This is less suitable for tall people. There are three bedrooms, one of which is suitable for children (children’s bedroom). The house is situated on one of the most beautiful (winding) routes of France. The Monte Carlo rally comes through here every year, and often so does the Tour de France. On a normal day, however, this is a quiet road, and little or no traffic comes through. Because the house and the garden are located on a higher part of the hill, you enjoy a lot of privacy, and you have no direct view of the road. To swim, you can go to the Auzène river. You can go by car (3 km) or via a hiking trail into the valley (2 km). Here you can swim and picnic on the rocks. Prefer to go to the pool? Saint Joseph des Bancs has a nice swimming pool. Kayaking is possible at St Sauveur de Montagut (vallée de l’Eyrieux at 17km) or at the Vallon Pont d`Arc (54 km). To soak up some culture, go to Aubenas (30 km) or Privas (20 km), beautiful medieval towns with cobbled streets and a rich historical centre. Do not forget the newest attraction of the Ardeche the caves ‘Chauvet’ also called the ‘Caverne du Pont d’Arc’ (40km)!
