slow living

Maison Craux is situated in the heart of the Ardèche close to the village of Privas and is part of the Parc Naturel Régional des Monts d’Ardèche. The ancient houses of Maison Craux, which date back from the 18th century, are surrounded by gardens, chestnut trees and have a magnificent view on the Alpes. The manoir with outbuildings were built on the ruins of an mediaeval castle and have now been renovated with exquisite style and elegance. Next to spacious lounges you will find patios, porches and terraces. It is a privileged place, where peace and quietness will be your companion. Nevertheless it is only a two hour drive, if you want to enjoy the lively, cultural and gastronomic cities like Lyon, Valence, Grenoble, Avignon, Orange or the heart of the Provence.

turn off your mind and relax

Take a refreshing dip in our swimmingpool with the freshest water you can imagine. The well is right under the premises. Of course we provide you with the pool towels. You can also enjoy our small lounge area or take a chair or fatboy and relax in our beautiful 1000 m2 herb and flower garden.


Maison Craux consists out of two vacation houses: the Manoir and the Petite Maison. Both are carefully designed to integrate the beauty of our natural surroundings and the comforts of a luxurious country house. For complete privacy we offer you the possibility to rent both houses and have Maison Craux exclusively to yourself.
