Two lovers
of the Ardèche

In 2010, Florence and I discovered Balazuc by chance. We bought the castle of Balazuc and have been hosting guests there for almost nine years. Receiving guests as friends has been a total joy for us.

Nowadays, the castle continues its life with new owners. It is no longer a guest house. For our part, Florence and I asked two talented young architects to design a resolutely contemporary house just opposite, on the other hill.


And as the virus of hospitality had not left us (that one, we cultivated it!), we fitted out this gîte on the garden level. It’s a different formula from that of the castle, our guests are autonomous.

Today, Florence has sadly left me after a long battle with illness. But her spirit remains and I always try to welcome each guest with open arms, as friends. With lots of little touches.

You are most welcome!
