Les gîtes du Solitary

  • With this large cottage for 12/13 persons, we offer an exceptional Gîte de France labelised accommodation. This is an old farmhouse of the XVII vivaroise S. on vaulted cellars that we have completely renovated and inhabited more than 20 years.

    This is an ideal place to allow multiple families or a group

    of friends to gather and spend a few days together .

    This Spacious gite - nearly 200 sq.m, has sleeping spaces totally independent of each other, as they are located in different places of the house.

    Gite de France Ref.: 263008


  • On the ground floor, opening on both terraces, the old farmhouse room of 30m2 with exposed beams, its walls of basaltic stone, a typical fireplace.

    The dining area can comfortably hosts 12 people around the large table.

    At the cold season, a warm fireplace accentuate the warmth and friendliness of the place.

    A third room is devoted to kitchen facilities which are very comfortable and very complete.

  • First Floor, above the dining room-kitchen, a room of 30m2, under the roof, with exposed beams. We have created there a spacious lounge.

    We'll see on the east a balcony overlooking the nature and on the southside two pretty small windows are letting sun and natural light to enter.

    You'll find the lounge plenty of charm with its stone walls and its basaltic fireplace in the corner. A "breakfast" corner will give you more independence in the morning. We trust you will enjoy this place.

  • On the ground floor, behind the large dining room / kitchen you will enter through a small corridor to the first "sleeping space" which consists of two bedrooms and a large bathroom with bath, sink and WC.

    One bedroom is very large (30 sq.m). It has been accommodate with one double bed, one normal bed and a cradle in case...

    This is where the ancients had their own bedroom. Its red and yellow decor reinforces its rural character. It has a wide window on the east side which overlooks the nature. A large closet provides you all the storage space needed.

    Down the hall, left, a tidy little room for children, with bunk beds.

  • Under the roof at the rear of the house above the old stables, the Master's Bedroom and the children's room (2 beds of 90cm), each at one end of a short corridor to ensure the tranquility of each receive the sun and the light through roof windows.

    Very well insulated, they remain cool in summer and zre quickly heated in winter.

    Medium size, they are nicely decorated and give off an atmosphere of "little nest".

    At the same level, there is a separate toilet, a bathroom with shower and sink.

  • Upstairs, above the large living room, 2 large attic bedrooms with exposed beams.

    Clear and bright, they open onto the balcony facing east, allowing the morning sun to enter onto the beds. Right upon awakening, it is joy.

    These two rooms, "the brick" one and the "purple" one have been fully renovated and refurbished in autumn 2007. They offer an undeniable pleasure.

    The bathroom is a proper room, bright thanks to its double exposure. It features a bath / shower, sink, toilet.

    Down the hall, serving the living rooms and the bedrooms, a sink-toilet adds comfort. In this same passage you'll find a large cupboard.

  • The Cottage has two beautiful terraces, large and shaded, one facing east and the other south, allowing you to follow or to protect you from the sun, depending on the season.

    The east terrace is particularly popular for breakfast; the south to lunch because it gives you a welcome shade in summer.

    Our Large Cottage is facing the surrounding fields and you can see the hills covered with chestnut and oak. No construction is blocking the view.

    It overlooks a spacious flowery garden where you will find a giant barbecue, petanque and a swing for the children.

  • For the youngest we have created an indoor playing area, much appreciated by parents. Around furniture to their size your young children can play and draw freely.

    Outside, the swing for the little ones, the petanque for the oldest.

    Under the awning in the courtyard, there is a table soccer but also a giant noughts and crosses, an original game of skill. It can rain, but in Ardeche it is rare, children can have fun before and after their sports and tourist activities.

    It has also an excellent on-site equestrian center that accepts children from 7 years.

  • “Sandou and Torrecillos Families thank you for the quality of your rental and equipment proposed. An address to remember for future holidays in Ardeche."
