Description from owner
Commanding dramatic views over the Rhone Valley to the French Alps, La Mirande sits in perfect isolation on a plateau 700m above sea level. Surrounded by farmland and a large private orchard and garden, it is a restorative island of great tranquility where guests are free to roam and relax.
The house is spacious with a very warm living situation. Guests staying for a week or more in the cottage or the two B&B suites receive a welcome dinner included in the price of accommodation. On other nights a table d’hote dinner of freshly cooked local produce is available. A four course dinner is 30 Euros per person, vin maison, 5 Euro per bottle - bookings 1 day in advance.
La Mirande is part of an old farmhouse first built over 200 years ago. It has been renovated using the skills of local artisans who have a deep respect and understanding of the traditional building techniques of the region.
The interiors combine traditional features with contemporary standards of design, reflecting the owner’s background in the arts. He is now a qualified cultural tour guide and guests are offered the option of accompanied days out to explore the secrets of the region.
Guided day trip options
Caves and prehistory of the Ardèche – river and rock scenery, the cathedral-like Orgnan Cave, hidden caves, Vallon Pont d’Arc and the amazing Chauvet story
Avignon - City of the Papal Palace, the famous bridge of the song and great restaurants and shopping, followed by nougat at Montelimar
Romans and wine - the amphitheatre and Roman museum at Alba, the fabulous Pont du Gard aqueduct, modern and Roman vineyards
Day trips are 150 euros for two people and 220 euros for four people, transport and picnic included, bookings 1 day in advance.
The La Mirande Short Break option
Get away from it all for the weekend and leave the car at home!
Fly to Lyon then take the TGV train from Lyon airport to Valence. Or take the Eurostar train from London St Pancras or Ebbsfleet International to Lille to connect with TGV to Valence, to be met at the station.
Stay three nights with dinner, bed and breakfast, take time to relax and enjoy guided outings to any of the above destinations.
Ask the owner for prices and more information on day trips and short breaks.

Communal Social Areas
One of the main attractions of the house is its open living area with original stone walls and a 7m high wood ceiling. A centrally placed monumental open fireplace becomes the point of focus in this dramatic open space. A mezzanine gallery runs around this central space, which was originally the barn of the old farm house. It accesses an intimate lounge, a library with a fascinating collection of books and a well-equipped office for those unfortunate people who are followed by their work. It also supplies the access to The Orient Suite. The dining area is found on the ground floor and the famous monumental fire place provides a wonderful setting for after dinner coffee and liqueurs.
