Located on the heights of Tence, Charron is a small hamlet not far from the path of Compostela (between Geneva and le Puy-en-Velay). The river Lignon runs a bit further down.

A series of walks depart from the house or can easily be joined by foot. The village and its surroundings are a “Respirando Station”, which means special attention is dedicated to the quality of outdoor activities : hiking, biking, horse-riding and many other activities are proposed such as golf, gyropode, fishing, etc… take a look at our page about the region.

It is possible to rent all kinds of bikes in the village (even electrical mountain bikes, which can be of use considering the specifities of the terrain). Don’t hesitate to ask for more information when you book your stay – we will be happy to help and guide you.

For more information, please refer to the Tourist office website Office du tourisme du Haut-Lignon , as well as the respirando website Respirando.

The Gîte

La Maison du Berger is a former farm which has been renovated into a comfortable home. You will love its stone walls, the well-equipped kitchen, the dining room with its charming traditional fireplace (Cantou), the living room with the woodstove and the wooden shelves with a selection of books and board games.

The owners

Stéphanie and Pascal bought this farm a few years ago with the intention of transforming it in a comfortable holiday home. Stephanie is Belgian and fell in the love with the region the first time she visited Pascal’s hometown. They travelled the world together and left some discrete souvenirs here and there in the gîte.

Here we speak French, English and Dutch.
