Directly from your doorstep there are a large number of tracks and footpaths that can be taken to explore the surrounding countryside, either on foot or by bicycle. There are a number of village fetes throughout the year with the main one being on the night of the 13th July (14th July is Bastille Day), where there is live music and tables are arranged outside the Mairie so that everyone can bring a picnic and come and enjoy the festivities together.

Within a 2 minute walk from the gite there is a small auberge, which serves meals from lunchtime till late, both menu du jour and a la carte. In Aubenas itself there are a large number of restaurants to choose from, to suit any budget.

There are swimming pools in Aubenas, Privas and Vals Les Bains, all within 30 minutes of the gite. Within this area there are also horse riding, mountain biking, walking and tennis. The river Ardeche also has many swimming spots.

There are many local markets and we can provide you with a list of markets that take place on any given day, however the 2 main weekend ones are Aubenas on a Saturday morning and Vals Les Bains on a Sunday morning.

Should you wish to visit the famous vineyards of the Rhone Valley, the nearest are a mere 45 minutes away.

The Rhone/French Alps region

The Ardeche is well known for being a hugely popular area with French and Dutch holidaymakers, yet remains a well guarded secret from British travelers. The summer climate is fantastic with plenty sunshine and little rain throughout June, July and August. Though there can be some hugely impressive thunderstorms that rattle round the surrounding hills. There are various summer festivals in the Ardeche and always plenty to see and do. From the Luna festival at Ruoms to the world renowned Grotte Aven D'Orgnac.

Saint Michel de Boulogne

The hills around Gite Alba provide some fantastic summer walking, with many kilometres of paths to follow, or indeed hills to climb. The majority of the paths are clearly marked and often follow circuits so that you can do a complete tour without having to double back on yourself. Aubenas and Privas both are towns of around 8-10,000 inhabitants with theatres, markets and various activities taking place throughout the summer months.
