The space

Located in a small greenwood valley in the center of medieval village of Dargoire, halfway between the city of Lyon and the town of Saint-Étienne (about 30km/19 miles by motorway), 10 minutes away from the "Autoroute du Sud" (which is France main motorway going south).
A very calm and soothing place, far away from the city pollution and hubbub. Ideal to have a break and get fresh ideas. The apartment is located in a paved street in the old medieval center of the village and in its ramparts.
This is a 55m² fully refurbished apartment which contains two independent bedrooms ( a double and a single), a small bathroom with a shower, a separate toilet, a spacious dining room fitted with a kitchen (a fridge with a freezer section, a gas cooker with 4 burners and an oven, a dishwasher, a coffeemaker, and so on), a small living room with satellite TV and a marble dining table, and a small corner office.
The flat would perfectly suit three adults, with a possibility to host two more childrens thanks to the convertible sofa. However, it will not suit disabled people since it is on the first floor with no elevator. It is located very close to the "Monts du Lyonnais" (mountains around Lyon) and to the National Naturel Park of the Pilat, to the city of Lyon and the town of Saint-Étienne and Vienne, which are all about 30 minutes away. In the village you may find some young farmers who produce local products (such as vegetables, fruits, full organic wines, traditional cheese and yogurts).
Eric, husband's Yvette, is fascinated by drama and is a theatre company leader. He also does voluntary work for the Rhino-Jazz's festival (a jazz festival which occurs every year in the area) and will be more than able to inform you about all the good cultural activities to be seen and done in the area.

Yvette is a warm and thoughtful host, making sure we had everything we needed when we arrived and before we left. The castle is very unique and I would recommend staying here to experience architecture unlike anything in Canada. Thank you for your hospitality Yvette!

Lovely place, quiet and peaceful. We were there only one night traveling from Amsterdam down to Perpignan and wanted a place to rest and that's exactly what we found. Yvette was beyond helpful and accommodating and we appreciated her hospitality greatly.
