The lodge Cœur des Monts d'Ardèche

A restored stone 18th century former silkworm farm in the heart of the little hamlet of La Chabanne, near Chirols, Vals les Bains, Antraigues sur Volane and Aubenas.

This accommodation combines a traditional character with a contemporary feel: old chestnut beams, dressed stone windows and traditional furniture are juxtaposed with a waxed concrete floor, metal staircase and aluminium door and window frames.

The 75 m² lodge can host up to 5 people and has 2 bedrooms, one with 1 double bed (160 cm) and the other with 2 single beds (90 cm). An Italian shower and a lava stone washbasin have been installed on the main floor and are accessible from both bedrooms.

The lodge also has a pleasant living room with high ceilings that is particularly bright, thanks to its large bay windows looking out over the terrace. It has a kitchenette and a lounge area with a wood-burning stove and a flat-screen TV. Finally, the kitchen, which opens out into the living room, has everything you need for meals: traditional oven, microwave, dishwasher, sink and crockery.

An iron staircase leads up to the walkway with its relaxation area (90 cm bed) and the 40 m² private terrace that offers undisturbed privacy and exceptional views over the surrounding valleys. From the terrace, you can see the 3 valleys and the peaks of the Tanargue Mountains.

The exterior has a table, garden chairs, an electric barbecue and an antique stone sink. You will also enjoy the common flowered garden in addition to your private terrace.

The lodge is close to the Ardèche, Fontaulière and La Bourge rivers, and there are some very picturesque areas nearby for swimming and fishing.
