have two self catering apartments available to rent in beautiful stone
buildings with panoramic views. Both apartments are accessed from
an interior courtyard, each having its own private balcony overlooking
the village and hills beyond. A swimming pool is situated on a lower
terrasse of our garden, available to both apartments. From the house
another garden leads directly into miles of peaceful chestnut and
house is nestled in a hamlet called Les Monedes in the village of
St. Paul le Jeune. Situated between the two market towns of St. Ambroix
and Les Vans, St. Paul le Jeune is at the very southern most point
of the Ardeche, on the edge of the Cevennes and Languedoc Roussillon
regions. The famous Ardeche Gorge and the spectacular Pont d'Arc are
20 minutes drive away offering canoeing, kayaking & river swimming.
The historical towns of Nimes, Arles & Avignon are all within
easy reach. Close by is the Pont du Gard. The Mediterranean sea is
just two hours drive south.
The countryside is ideal for outdoor activities such as walking, cycling
& swimming. The village lies on the border of two very different
geological regions: one boasting fascinating limestone outcrops, natural
potholes & cave systems to visit; the other offering miles of
hilly forest & beautiful river valleys. For those interested in
sketching or painting there are numerous sites within walking distance
of the house to inspire you.
