What's On in Ardeche
Plan your holidays
Perched on the Rocher de Sampzon, La Tour is a luxurious family gîte for 10 to 12 people, in the heart of the dynamic tourist area of the Gorges de l'Ardèche and open to the Cévennes mountain range, for the comfort of parents and the happiness of children
At the gateway to Provence, Le Hameau du Vallier welcomes you to the Ardèche gorges, a few kilometres from the fabulous Chauvet cave and the Pont d'Arc, geographical and cultural testimonies to the timeless beauty of the area, not to be missed under any circumstances. A classified natural area teeming with birds (endemic species), the beaches of the Ardèche are 1km away. The GR4 (1 day walk) runs alongside the property, 50m above the house. All amenities are a 5 minute drive away and there are numerous sporting and cultural activities within a 15km radius (kayaking, horse riding, climbing, rafting etc... Neovinum, the Chavet 2 Ardèche cave, the Aven d'Orgnac, the Melvita factory, the lavender museum, the Alphonse Daudet museum, the forest cave etc.). It is possible to go directly to Ruoms (5km) to do your shopping (shopping centre) on foot or by bike, by the green way (old railway). The medieval villages of Ruoms and Vallon Pont d'arc (12th century) offer you all the delicious artisanal products of the region, as well as their day and night markets. Ruoms-Sampzon-Vallon is the St Tropez of the Ardèche, but the house is very quiet and well away from the seasonal bustle.
Our accommodation is atypical in its design and decoration. High-tech luxury, fittings in noble materials such as wood, leather and linen, old Ardèche furniture, unique pieces and artists' creations, the concern for beauty is the key word for your holidays at the Hameau du Vallier.
Classified as 4 stars but equipped as 5, particular attention is paid to the sleeping arrangements. Balneotherapy cabins with hammam are available in all bathrooms. Ideally designed for two families with many children, the Tower is full of surprises both inside and outside: a balneo area with a top-of-the-range SPA, a trapper's hut, a hanging net, an Indian tent, a petanque field, an archery field, a playful course in the aromatic and medicinal garden, await young and old alike! The grandiose landscape of the Tower's panoramic terrace will keep your memories alive for years to come.
