Tournon sur Rhône

Lovely gite in wing of a traditional Ardechoise farmhouse, overlooking the Ardèche mountains. Set in 25 acres of evergreen oak woodland, surrounded by cherry and apricot orchards and the vineyards and caves of the St Joseph and Hermitage AOC's.

La BONNEFONTAINE offers a wonderful environment for couples and families looking for culture, adventure and relaxation. The gite is separate from the main farmhouse with private access. There is ample parking space and a lovely garden.
Both the Ardeche and the Drome departments have a wealth of activities, sights and events to suit all tastes and budgets and the cities of Lyon and Avignon are within easy reach for day outings. Locally the Doux valley offers swimming and fishing and a wealth of hill villages and gastronomic treats to experience.

The Ardeche is a well known holiday destination for the French and offers some exciting opportunities for the adventurous. However, it also offers quieter, more sophisticated treats for wine lovers, gastro buffs and historians. The neighbouring department of the Drome is celebrated for its scenery and geological treasures in the hills and grottes of the region.
