Gîte / Cottage

Les Martes


This house is located in the hamlet of Le Serret and is a few centuries old, like most houses in this region. The front part of the building is our own house, in the back part is the gîte. The space has been transformed into a luxurious, comfortable holiday home, furnished with attention to detail and material. It is well insulated and has double glazing in all windows and doors. Central heating ensures a pleasant temperature in the spring and autumn.

There is a courtyard next to the house. The part in front of the gte is separated and has its own entrance. Here is a table and patio chairs. Guests can also freely use the garden in front of the house and enjoy the sun in various places.
A jeu de boules court has been laid out on the second terrace, balls are available. Feel free to invite us to throw a ball. There is also a large terrace with a seat. In addition, there is our large vegetable garden with everything that grows abundantly here in a sunny climate.

The guests have complete privacy.
We live in the front part of the building ourselves and are available for advice and assistance. We have had the house for 24 years and can give you a lot of information about all kinds of things.

Our house is located in the center of the 'Parc Naturel des Monts d'Ardèche'. This is the rougher part of the Ardêche, an area of beautiful, protected landscapes and small hamlets, untouched by time. Winding roads wind their way through orchards of peaches and apricots, chestnut groves and impressive Gorges to the ancient volcanic craters on the high plateaus of the Ardèche. Most of the houses are built in granite and are several centuries old, as is our house, which is located in the hamlet of Le Serret, belonging to the municipality of Issamoulenc.

The famous Gorges d'Ardêche are within easy reach, as are areas such as the Drôme and Provence. There are also nearby villages such as Balazuc (one of the hundred most beautiful villages in France), Vogue, Thines, Largentiére and many others where time has stood still.
And for those who like more crowds, how about canoeing in the river Ardèche or a trip to Vallon Pont d'Arc and then along the Gorges d'Ardèche with its magnificent views. A visit to the beautiful cities of Valence, Orange and Avignon with its famous pont (bridge) is possible. You should definitely not miss the weekly markets. They are very lively and an important part of local life. Almost every day there is a market somewhere and for enthusiasts the flea markets are definitely worth a visit.
Nearby, in St. Sauveur de Montagut and in Privas are nice climbing parks. In the gte you will find extensive documentation about all these matters.

We, Martien and Marthy, in recent years the summer in our old house in the Ardèche in France. The winter months we are in the Netherlands, in our beautiful Krimpenerwaard and we have more time for our children and grandchildren. We enjoy this way of both worlds, which suits us very well.
