If you are thinking of a peaceful vacation in the south of France, look no further than L'ESCAPADE a group of 'Gites' located in the village of Rosieres in Ardeche.
In high season their basic rate for 4 to 6 people is in the 550.00 (euros) to 650.00 (euros).
Each gite includes a Living room/ Kitchen so you can buy local produce and cook your own feast if you do not feel like eating out every day.
The area is well suited for hiking, mountain climbing, canoe and other water sports. On site, there is a pool and a tennis court.
