Accommodation

About our home

Originally a shepherd's hut in the hills, the area now known as Alauzon consists of a collection of buildings ranging from converted farm buildings to contemporary-styled properties.

The setting is a magnificent hill-top area surrounded by meadows, streams, and protected forests. Though only fifteen minutes' drive from Buis-les-Baronnies, Alauzon feels as though it is a world unto itself and it's unusual to hear anything more than the wind or the birds.

Situated at 800m altitude, we get plenty of sun, but without the blistering heat making Alauzon a great place to stay all year-around. Alauzon is a fantastic place to be and, when you visit, you will quickly appreciate why.

We can provide the right accommodation for your group whether you're looking for one night or more, from one apartment to multiple rentals. Just let us know what you need.

The cabin is situated in a clearing on the edge of the woods just four hundred metres from the main buildings at Alauzon. The building is off-grid with electrical power provided by an array of solar panels and two large batteries with an inverter that allows up to 600 Amps at 220V. There is no WIFI or mobile phone reception at the cabin - but these can be accessed via the main building… if desired.

Ideal for those wanting unbroken tranquillity, yet only a short stroll from all our facilities. Renovated in 2016, the cabin comprises of a living area with a dining table, sofa, kitchen, and beds for four on the mezzanine level. The kitchen has a double gas burner and a vintage wood-burning stove that both heats the building and cooks meals. There is a compact fridge-freezer powered by the solar panels.

The bathroom is in an adjacent building, with a shower room and WC.

In front of the cabin is an east-facing timber terrace with table, chairs and parasol.

Access to the cabin is possible either via the main property, or for those with 4x4 vehicles, via a breathtaking drive up the gorge.

We provide a gas bottle for the water heater and a supply of wood, though some chopping may be required (axe provided).

The living area has three floor to ceiling windows looking out into the woods.
The east facing wooden deck with table, chairs and parasol. The adjacent building houses the WC and the shower room.
