South France

This summer I spent ten glorious days in the Ardèche area. We had the opportunity to stay at a friend’s vacation house. Her parents had bought  it in the 60s and had lived there every summer until recently. It is a beautiful old farmhouse, a little modernized but not too much. Running hot water is as far as it gets. There is a big outside kitchen and an outside shower, a big living room with an open fireplace and three big bedrooms. I want to go back badly. It was heaven.

The surrounding landscape is mountainous, quite rough in the higher parts, and divided by several river valleys. The river Ardèche cut a deep canyon into the rocks, quite a spectacular view from the curvy road that runs alongside it. The clear, crisp mountain water is perfect for swimming on a hot day, and along the entire river canoes can be rented.

The little villages along the rivers are beautiful, very original and peaceful.

  1. Thanks for sharing these wonderful photos from an area, I love too. Swimming in the Ardèche is as you would immerse into silk – together with a lot of fishes. .
