Set in the stunning Ardèche department, Château Sauvage is in a remote and beautiful location, near the town of Privas, reached via a narrow road with spectacular scenery around you.

There’s a delightful weekly fruit and vegetable market in the local village, around 8km away, as well as an excellent bakery, butchers and winery.

Guests can make the most of the outstanding natural scenery by horse-riding with stables just a ten-minute drive away, as well as incredible hikes, rock climbing and canoeing down the Ardèche gorges - Vallon-Pont-d'Arc, one of the main starting points for canoe excursions, is only an hour away.

This region also offers some fine wine-tasting opportunities with the Côtes du Rhône wine regions to the north and south both accessible. Visit vineyards, wine châteaux and cellars to sample some of the excellent varieties produced in this area. Of course, you must try some of the wines from the Ardèche vineyards too!

For food-lovers, you will find many excellent restaurants including the three Michelin starred Restaurant Anne-Sophie Pic in Valence (45km) or you may prefer to visit the chef’s more informal eatery next door and her gourmet food shop. Other restaurants in pretty villages offer an authentic taste of Provençal cuisine in glorious settings in charming places such as Cliousclat (30km), Charmes-sur-Rhône (35km) and closer to home near Privas.

Indeed, Privas (14km) is a characterful town to explore with its twice weekly Farmers market and beautiful architecture. Sample some of the chestnut products that the town is well known for or just soak up the ambience with a coffee or glass of local wine in a terrace café. Privas is the gateway to the Parc Naturel Régional des Monts d'Ardèche with its amazing landscapes and breathtaking beauty.

Montélimar (35km) is another lovely day out, especially on a Saturday when you can experience the vibrant morning market. Expect colourful shops, many selling nougat which is a speciality of this town and historic buildings including the especially impressive 12th century Château des Adhémars.

Other wonderful places in the Ardèche include the spa town of Vals-les-Bains (36km) and the pretty medieval town of Aubenas (35km), both reached in under an hour.

Valence (45km) is worthy of a visit, known as the gateway to the south of France, whilst the historic city of Avignon (110km) can be reached in around ninety minutes for a brilliant day out.
