Hi, we live almost in the middle of nowhere, in the Ardèche region, not too far from Valence and Privas, in an old silk factory, with two boys (12 and 16) and 4 cats. We have many projects around the house and would like to share our space and experience.
The house is located in a natural protected valley with various kind of nice landcapes, forests, old vulcanos. The Auzène river is running through the garden.

You have to be aware that we live rather far from towns or even villages. The closest shop, bakery, doctor... is 30' drive away. But you can hike through forests, mountains, along the river, ride a bicycle up and down the hill, swimm in the river or pool, or take a day trip to cities such as Valence, Lyon, Grenoble, or spend a couple of days in Avignon or Marseille.
