Ferme Les Costes is a small hamlet of seven houses in the Ardèche, a beautiful and unspoiled part of France, yet easily accessible from Lyon. The climate is stable, with an average maximum daily temperature in July of 29 degrees. The buildings are 350 years old have and been fully and lovingly restored. There are also a few caravans and a place to camp, 74 acres (30 hectares) of hilly nature, a large, covered outdoor as well as indoor dance floors (80 m² / 850 sq.ft.), a swimming pool, and much more...The ideal place for hiking and cycling. You are welcome here as an individual, a couple, a family or a group with activities in a house, a chambre d'hote or at the campsite.
The nearest major town is Valence, south of Lyon. Valence is connected to Lyon Airport (Saint Exupery) by TGV - the journey takes 30 minutes. From there, you can take a bus to either Le Cheylard or Lamastre, and we will pick you up.
Your host and owner of the place is Marjorie Schreuder. She will cook for you the most delicious meals - a fusion of western and oriental styles - (vegetarian and non-vegetarian) while dinners are included in the price of your stay.(So the price of 50 euro mentioned here is the price per day per adult including a dinner) in the high season in a chambre d'hote. For people who are camping here it will be only half of that price)
In summer I organize musical events and for people who bring their own instruments and wants to share this with the other guests I will give a reduction on the price of your stay.
In short this is a place full of surprises.
Op verzoek kan ik het lijstje met de huisregels opsturen, maar het voornaamste is op deze natuurplek: oppassen met vuur, zuinig met gebruik van het water dat uit de eigen natuurlijke bronnen komt, niet roken binnenshuis of in het bos, het eigen afval opruimen en rekening houden met de andere gasten.
We passed two weeks vacation at one of Marjorie's gite and we had fantastic time. She has a lot space it is like a small village, there is a lot of space dedicated to the group gatherings, we all have dinners together in a nice summer terrace, Marjorie is a very good cook, Friday night there are concerts given by some guests who come to stay. There is a lot space for camping and for celebrating important events. It is not far from Lamastre, saint agreve, base aquatique, we even went to safari at Peaugres. We recommend Marjorie's gites. She is an excellent host . Thank you Marjorie

I am a Dutch woman that lives since 2000 in the Ardeche (South of France) a beautiful and unspoiled part of France, yet easily accessible from Lyon.. I bought here an old hamlet which was mainly in ruines and built it up and now it consists of of seven houses , a swimming pool and some dancefloors. I cook for my guests an international cuisine, mainly vegetarian and oriental, but for groups I can cook according to their wishes different styles. People come here with families, friends, weddings and dancegroups, yoga and music.,I love my place and I love my work in this quiet and natural place where still fresh air van be breathed. I made a small youtube film about my place called reportage ferme "Les Costes". I speak fluently dutch, german, french and english but in this film I speak dutch with english subtitles. Everybody is very welcome to stay with me.
