Welcome to Le Perrier, an authentic and peacefully situated Provencal farm which was recently converted into 4 comfortable and stylish gîtes (holiday houses). Each of the gîtes is spacious enough to accommodate 6-8 persons for a long or short holiday. Outside the high season the houses can also be rented for 2-5 persons at a reduced rate. Besides the holiday houses we have two comfortable chambres d'hôtes (bed & breakfast) which can be rented throughout the year. For groups our total capacity ranges up to 31 persons, having 13 bedrooms with a total of 6 double beds and 15 single beds.
Reservations can be made by contacting us by ways listed on the Contact page.

Le Perrier and its swimming pool
Le Perrier is situated in the Drôme valley, 10 miles south of Valence, 50 miles north of Avignon, or 75 miles south of Lyon, in the Drôme province in the south of France. It can be reached easily by car (a 10 min. drive from the A7 motorway, take exit 16 and keep following the direction Loriol-sur-Drôme, after Loriol direction Crest, look for the sign near the road), by train (the TGV calls at Valence TGV station, where we can pick you up by car) or by airplane, to either Lyon (several carriers) or (regular airliners and Ryanair).
The houses
We offer 4 very spacious and comfortable gîtes of 100 to 140 sq metres (1100 to 1500 sq ft), each with 3 to 4 bedrooms as well as a separate bathroom and toilet on each of the two floors, equipped with all the modern conveniences including dishwasher and washing machine. Being fully insulated and having good central heating Le Perrier is also an ideal location for holidays in the off-season. Well suited for larger groups, we also have a bedroom and bathroom specially designed and equipped for a handicapped visitor. The interior of one of our gîtes (houses)
The climate of the Drôme valley is Mediterranean-influenced but without the extremes of heat and dryness. Le Perrier lies in a protected natural area between woods and fields on the flanks of a low mountain range offering a wide view of the Drôme valley. The property of 5 hectares (12,5 acres) includes a generous swimming pool, a playground and sports field. Walking paths and all-terrain biking trails are immediately accessible from the property. Within a half hour drive the visitor can enjoy the varied and spectacular mountain scenery of the Pré-Alpes and their characteristic hilltop villages. The region is dotted with typical Provencal towns and being relatively close to the auto route, cities of the Rhône valley such as Valence and Avignon are readily accessible. For daily shopping a major new commercial centre lies within a ten-minute drive. Our swimming pool with a view to the Drôme valley

Food & wine
Le Perrier, which has its own vineyard, lies well positioned between the two major production areas of Côte du Rhône. In the immediate vicinity there are a number of caves and chateaux whose products are well worth a visit. The Drôme is also the birthplace in Roman times of the original of the bubbly whites, the Clairette de Die. The area offers a range of good restaurants from the cosy family bistro to establishments of renown. The Drôme is also the foremost region of biological farming. There are typical daily markets in the surrounding towns. Le Perrier is surrounded by fields and woods
Prices are all-in, including bed linen, energy and water, and tourist taxes but excluding 80 euros (Auberge: 85 euros) cleaning costs.
Because one of our gîtes, named L'Auberge, has a larger capacity and more facilities its rent is slightly higher than the other three, named l'Étable, l'Écurie and le Masure.

The rate for bed & breakfast in our two comfortable chambres d'hôtes is € 70,00/night (French standard rate). The Dutch/Canadian owners will receive you with pleasure.

Unfortunately we cannot allow pets in the gîtes. Thanks for your understanding and cooperation.
