Les Mystères in Ardèche, a cottage in Rhône-Alpes: Les Mystères exterior

Riverside house overlooking sandy beach, near to canoeing, restaurants and shops

Vogüé, classed among “Les Plus Beaux Villages de France”, is located in the spectacular Ardèche Gorge, clinging to the slope between the river and the high cliffs defining the gorge. Les Mystères is in a narrow street with traditional houses, leading to a sandy riverside beach; ideal for sunbathing or swimming, with canoe and kayak rental in summer. The village is shown in all the outdoor photos and Les Mystères (the last house 100m from the beach) appears in most of them.

The house is the two upper floors of a traditional building. A wide stone stair leads up from the street to the entrance lobby and a large sitting/dining room with a log fire and a table which can seat up to 12. the couch can convert to an extra double bed. Glazed doors open onto a balcony: perfect for early morning coffee, late afternoon drinks or all-day relaxation. It looks across the garden to the river, with views of high cliffs to the south and the beach and stone arches of the bridge to the north. Steps from the balcony lead down to a lawn bordered by olive, pomegranate, quince and cypress trees, and flowering shrubs.

The kitchen, next to the dining room, has a gas/electric cooker, microwave oven, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, clothes washing machine and all necessary crockery and utensils. Bedroom 1, also on the 1st floor, has a double bed, a single bed and an en suite bathroom with shower.

The second floor has a spacious lounge with timber beams and full height windows, providing spectacular views of the river and cliffs. Bedroom 2, with a double bed, looks across traditional tiled roofs to the church tower. It connects to the main bathroom, which has a second door to the lounge. Bedroom 3 has three single beds.

The owner’s ground floor flat is also sometimes available at 35% less than the house rental: stone-vaulted 40sq.m. open plan kitchen/dining/lounge, with a double sofa-bed; a small double bedroom and a shower room. Ideal for a couple or family of 4.

Vogüé is a picturesque maze of cobbled alleys dominated by the chateau, which hosts cultural events and guided tours. Many other attractive towns and villages are within 20 minutes' drive. Historic cities (Avignon, Orange, Nîmes) can be visited in a day trip. The Ardèche Gorge and the hills are fantastic walking country. From the house, you can stroll along the river below the cliffs; enjoy amazing views from a hidden cliff-top path; or spend all day hiking through oak forest, vinyards and the wilder landscape of the plateau.

Traditional markets, with a rich variety of local food, wine and other products, are within 20 minutes' drive. Vogüé has several restaurants and shops but most close in winter. Year round services (boulangerie, pharmacy, supermarket, restaurants, etc) are within 5 minutes’ drive or a short walk. A very big supermarket is 10 minutes’ drive from the house.
