“Excellent accommodation”
Reviewed August 13, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

If you’re looking for modern, well-furnished accommodation but with a traditional feel, look no further than Gite Alba. The gite has beautiful views of rolling French countryside from all windows whilst the wooden terrace catches the sun from late morning into the evening. This was a brilliant spot to just relax and enjoy.

On arrival we were given a warm welcome. The gite was furnished to a high standard with a good range of kitchen equipment for self-catering. The beds were a pleasure to sleep in with nice firm mattresses meaning no sleepless first night getting used to the bed and no roll together – always a blessing! The gite comfortably fitted a family of four and the wifi was a godsend when dragging an eleven and fifteen year old and their associated gadgets.

The gite owners, Stewart and Chivon, were friendly, helpful and an excellent source of local knowledge. All in all this is excellent accommodation. Many thanks, we had a wonderful holiday here and are very much looking forward to coming back in the future.

“A comfortable modern apartment in a delightful quiet village”
Reviewed August 5, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

The apartment was comfortable, modern and attractive with views out over the hills from the balcony terrace outside. Stewart Grant, the owner, responded promptly to questions and was generally very helpful; the arrangements for arrival and departure were straightforward.
The auberge that runs in the summer makes a significant difference to a stay in the quiet little village of St Etienne de Boulogne. This is a place for a quiet retreat and exploring the woods, mountains, villages and towns in the area with a longer trip to the Ardeche Gorges. The good WiFi helped considerably in researching what was around and worth visiting. A delighful quiet corner with opportunities for walks from the village, and supermarkets in Aubenas fairly close by for stocking up on food.
A little more information on the equipment in the house and on the village would help, as would filling some of the holes in the drive, but these are minor points. Overall a great place to stay even if the weather this year was rather more unpredictable than normal.
