Castle
Vallon-Pont-d'Arc (7)

Chateau medieval, listed village, on a rocky pinnacle directly overlooking the Ardeche River below.
Unique!
11th-century medieval 'château fort', perched on the rocky pinnacle of
a listed village amongst the most beautiful in France, directly
overlooking the majestic Ardeche River flowing down below.
Listed with the Historical Monuments of France since 1927.
Painstakingly brought back to life in 2006 after a thousand years of
adventures, the chateau, with its stone walls over three feet thick, now
offers over 3770 sq ft living space with incomparable beauty and
comfort, along with a subtle touch of pure contemporary style:
- The Grand Salon, of over 450 sq ft, with its monumental stone
fireplace and ceilings 20 feet high;
- A vast dining room, also 450 sq ft, with views both to the north and
the south of the river canyon;
- A state-of-the-art, semi-professional kitchen, entirely equipped.
All with underfloor heating below the ancient flagstones and Indian
slate floors.
A total of seven bedrooms, each one more splendid than the other, all
with en-suite bathrooms, sober of style, as befits the chateau, and
beautifully appointed with high-quality fittings.
Amazing views from each of the old stone windows, double-glazed
?fenêtres à meneaux' with steel frames.
Soar with the birds, dream, and contemplate the staggering views over
the cliffs of the river canyon way down below, as you relax on the large
dining terraces leading off the Grand Salon.
The interior courtyard boasts a veritable technical feat with its
heated lap pool, 13 x 1.6 m, safely hidden from outside eyes behind the
high stone walls of the château donjon.
Rated amongst the best " Maison d'Hotes" de France, it is also an exceptional private
home.
Seeing is believing
