Character stone built property, situated right in the heart of touristic South Ardeche, which is a highly sought after peaceful village just a few kilometres from Vogue, Ruoms and Vallon pont d'Arc (the "Golden Triangle" of the Ardeche Gorges). These villages are listed as some of the most beautiful in France. Also close by is the must-see natural bridge at Vallon Pont d'Arc and the Unesco-listed site of the "Grotte Chauvet". The towns of Ruoms and Aubenas are just 15 km away, with their many shops, supermarkets and schools. Montelimar, around 35 km away, has the nearest TGV train station and direct motorway access (A7).

The current accommodation is split over 4 levels, which features:
Garden level: independent summer apartment with its open-plan living area, bedroom and shower room. There is also a large living room with a cross vaulted ceiling.

Second level, which is also on the same level as the access to the small village road: splendid and very large living room with various areas; a library, areas for entertainment, games and music and a wood-burning stove. There is a spacious dining room with an oven and grill (a reminder of its past as an inn) and a large kitchen with a high vaulted ceiling. On this living level are 2 double bedrooms, each with its own modern and tasteful shower room and a WC - but perhaps only 1 will be found, as the other is a secret room, which is a fun touch!

Third level: additional living room, 2 double bedrooms, each with its own bathroom, WC and private terrace.

Fourth level: 45m2 attic for conversion. A service duct has been created with all the planned connections for water, heating, electricity, drainage and WC, with a view to extending the accommodation.

With so much to say about the property and its location.

Buying a Property in France

1. Signing the Agreement (Compris)

On finding a property you wish to purchase you will need to negotiate the terms, price and conditions of the sale with the owner.

The next step, once you are in agreement, is to sign the preliminary contract (Compromis de Vente). This is a legal document and after ten days will be binding on both parties. Rules change frequently in France and it is best to consult with your notary about when this period starts. Generally the compris will be signed in France with the Agent.

Variants can be included in the compris, for example an Acte (clause) can be added if the name or names to go on the title deed have not been finalised. If a mortgage will be required to purchase the property, the details for this, including the name of the mortgage company, must be on the compris.

2. Paying the Deposit

Generally the deposit will be 10% of the agreed purchase price. This will normally be paid to the notaire. There are exceptions to this, if the agent holds a carte professionelle, is bonded and fully registered then you may pay them, but do not hand over the deposit to anyone else. If for some reason the purchase does not go through, for example, if you write to the notaire and the agent that you do not wish to go continue with the purchase before the contract is binding (within seven days of signing the compris), then your deposit would be repaid. This would also apply if a condition had not been met, or the mayor or S.A.F.E.R. (a government agency that has the right of first purchase on most rural property that comes onto the market in France) could oblige the purchaser to give way. If you decide after the seven days 'cooling off' period that you do not wish to complete the purchase and pull out of the sale you would lose your deposit. If however the vendor pulls out of the sale then you will receive your deposit back plus the same amount from the vendor.

3. On Completion

Generally it will take around two or three months to complete the purchase.

During this time the balance of the purchase money must be paid into the account of the notaire, this must be done well ahead of the completion date. The notaire will prepare the documents, check that the deed of sale (Acte de Vente) is in order and have the legal title ready to be signed over. It is possible to have someone sign on your behalf if you give them power of attorney. An interpreter may be of use at this point if your French is not very good and many Notaires will suggest (or insist) that an interpreter is with you.
