THE HOTEL

 

Located in Ardèche, between Lyon and Valence, the Hotel de la Villeon is a special kind of place nestling with the street on one side and spectacular exterior vistas on the other, set among historical flagstones and centennial yews. It stems from a bold vision and the need to share a passion, namely that of fine hotel hospitality in the heart of a landscape devoted to wine tourism, a place where you will choose to stopover if you are seeking something real, if you have a craving for Nature and authenticity.

In this charming hotel, History gently touches the soul, welcoming all and sundry, making every use of the space: noble materials and decorations (some of which are listed as Historical Monuments) instantly conjure up elegance and refinement… floorboards, mouldings, fireplaces, floor tiles, a stone staircase, a cast-iron bannister, a solid walnut entrance door, all these combine in delighting guests who are fond of beauty and gentleness.

 

 

 

 

 

A listed Historical Monument since 1927, the main entrance door is made of period 17th-century solid walnut wood. The doorknocker represents a grotesque mask. More than just an imprint, the door has become a symbol for the hotel, as a powerful link between yesteryear and the now.
