Le Chiat

Rental Home -
4 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 10
Silhac, Ardeche, Auvergne-Rhone-Alpes
Le Chiat is a restored and extended stone barn; part of a pretty hamlet amongst chestnut and pine woodland, in the spectacular Parc Naturel Régional des Monts d'Ardèche. The south facing garden enjoys all day sunshine and has beautiful unspoilt views across the valley. Ideal for family holidays and outdoor activities, or if you just want to get away from it all.

We are only 15 minutes drive from the popular Eyrieux Valley where there is camping, and beaches for river swimming, canoeing and other watersports.

Le Chiat is a split level house and has 3 floors. The lower entrance is down a few stone steps into an open plan living, kitchen and dining area with high ceilings, a contemporary fitted kitchen with breakfast bar, and a log burner.

The connecting old barn - comprising bedrooms, games room and bathroom - is reached either via t...

Le Chiat is a rural retreat, the house is deep in the northern Ardeche in a largely untraveled area. The house is lovely with a beautiful view down the valley with gorgeous sunrise everyday for any early risers in the group. We benefited from lovely...More

About the neighborhood
If you like walking, the opportunities in Ardèche are endless and there is a Grande Randonnee (national walking trail), which passes through the forest 200m from our house.

For horse riding, there are stables only 5 minutes away at Sarnoux, where Jean Daniel will gladly take guided tours with parties of all abilities.

There are several nearby locations for river swimming, the best being at St Sauveur de Montagut and les Ollieres in the Eyrieux Valley, or more locally at the Duniere gorge.
At les Ollieres you can also hire canoes or go to the Aquarock adventure park.

This is a popular area for cycling - both on road and MTB, but you need to be reasonably fit as it is quite hilly!

In late summer/autumn mushroom picking is a favorite activity for the locals - but be careful as they&#39...
