When my wife and I travel we carefully research the towns that we are going to visit and the best places to stay. The Chateau of Balazuc is a fantastic find!! Luc and Flo, the owners, are amazing hosts and they went out of their way to make sure that our stay was the best. Our room was The Ramparts...

We stayed with our friends for 4 nights at the incomparable Chateau de Balazuc. 25 yrs of traveling in france and this is easily one of the most stunning, relaxing and delightful experiences. The warm welcome with wine each evening is fun and the breakfast is the most amazing we have ever seen. Flo and Luc and their cute cats...

A unique experience at the tail end of our trip to this region of France. Cannot imagine a better way to end an amazing vacation! The rooms we booked for our family of 4 adults (the Ardeche and the Boxwoods) provided an unforgettable experience. Luc and Florence, our hosts, were so welcoming. They prepared an amazing breakfast with a variety...

...is that we only booked one night as a stopover on our way to Nice. This place is amazing and the pictures truly don't do it justice.

One of the best we have ever stayed in. Fabulous location, good hospitality and great value for money. Plenty to do without getting back in the car, great walks around the village plenty on inexpensive restaurants, canoeing on your doorstep and easy walks along the Ardeche river.
