La Magnanerie is a compact dwelling (approx 45m2) for two or three people. Part of the old silk-worm loft, from which the house takes its name, has been transformed into a mezzanine to provide the sleeping accommodation.

The remainder has been opened out and merged with the room downstairs, to create a large, light living area over 5m high at its tallest point. An open kitchen and a shower room located underneath the loft complete the low-level interior accommodation.

Outside, there are two secluded areas leading off the living area from which you can enjoy the sunshine. Start the day on the south-facing wooden terrace, then move with the sun to the west, transferring to the stone-paved patio.

There is a large 15x5m swimming pool and jacuzzi and gym. The gym features a treadmill, cross-trainer, bike, stepper and rower and, for the really masochistic, a multi-gym weights machine.

A free wireless ADSL connection is available.

We have an organic vegetable garden so fresh produce is always available. In addition, we provide evening meals when required - can be very good on the night that you arrive.

The Rhône-Alpes region

L'Elze is on the edge of the Ardechois Cevennes at an altitude of 550m. In summer the normal temperature is in the high 20s or low 30s. Because we are reasonably high there is usually a cooling breeze.

Rocles

The closest town to the Mas de L'Elze is Largentiere, dating back to medieval times, retaining its walls, gates and ancient winding cobbled streets. En route from there to Aubenas, you will find Balazuc, designated one of the most picturesque villages of France. And it's not the only wonderful village to see - try Thines and Labeaume, for example.

The newest thing to see in the Ardeche is the Caverne du Pont D'Arc, the recreation of the famous Chauvet Cave which has been designated a UNESCO World heritage Site.

The majestic gorges of the Ardeche, famous for their natural beauty, are a short drive away. Closer by are the valleys of the Beaume, Drobie and Chassezac, less well-known, but no less beautiful. The mountain range of the Tanargue forms a backdrop to the setting sun in the west. An unusual natural phenomenon to be found nearby is the Bois de Paiolive, a labyrinth of white rocks eroded into strange and fantastic shapes.

You can enjoy the countryside while relaxing in the sun with a glass of local wine. Alternatively, should you wish to get a little closer to nature there is lots to do.

First of all, you can hike or bike straight from the door. The hiking is on way-marked tracks, both on local ones and on the long distance national (GR) ones. The biking is varied; you can either mountain-bike on the tracks or road-bike on the routes followed by the biggest cycle race in France, the Ardechoise, or do a combination of both if you hire our hybrid mountain/road bikes.

Next, you can explore the rivers. Canoeing down the gorges of the Ardeche or the Chassezac is pretty well obligatory! And once you've done that, the swimming is wonderful - and the fishing is not bad either........... Then you can rock-climb out of the gorges or fly over them on the Via Ferrata (zip wire) at Thuyets.

And for something a little less terrifying, you can try horse-riding or even donkey-trekking.

There are many caves to see in the region including Aven D'Orgnac where there are often son et lumiere events.

Day-trips to Orange, Avignon, Nimes are within easy reach as are vists to the Cotes du Rhone villages where you can sample the famous wines.
