Château de Balazuc

Starting from 140 EUR Book online


In Ardèche, in the beautiful village of Balazuc, labeled "most beautiful village of France" and "village of character", the Château de Balazuc opens its doors to you for a moment of wonder in a very warm and friendly atmosphere.

This castle of the 11th and 13th centuries, hung on its rock, overlooks the river Ardeche with a breathtaking view of its surrounding nature. It was completely restored a few years ago. The decoration, very contemporary, nevertheless preserves the charm of the stone and its history.

After your day of discovery, you can bask in the jacuzzi or take a few lengths in the swim lane. And at seven o'clock, like every evening, the sound of the bell reminds you of the long awaited hour of the aperitif during which everyone gets to know each other, finds himself and shares his good plans.

The Chateau de Balazuc offers 3 rooms designed for your comfort, each with its own personality. From 140 to 180 € per night for 2 people (prices are decreasing according to the number of nights).

The Hosts

Florence & Luc

Why did you choose to open guesthouse ?

A few years ago in another life, we were both written press journalists in Paris. The idea to open a guest house didn’t just spring to mind; it matured gradually over about fifteen years until the eventualities of professional life freed us and allowed us to transform this dream into a tangible project. This was in line with our desire to meet and share our lifestyle with others as well as our need to get away from Paris.

Although Florence’s family is from the southern part of Ardèche, it was by complete coincidence that we discovered Balazuc in 2010. It was love at first sight for this magnificent region: its culture, its people and its breathtaking landscapes. It is our greatest pleasure today to allow you to discover this superb region which marvel us at every day.


Swimming lane

The swimming lane (13 meters x 1.6 meters, heated from April 15 to October 15) allows you to do a few lengths to refresh and relax before soaking up the sun on the terrace.


What’s better than gazing at the stars whilst relaxing in water heated to 38.5° C? Our jacuzzi is accessible 24 hours a day.

Well-being massages

On reservation, Sally or Robert can offer you well-being massages with essential oils. And why not try a couple’s massage lesson for beginners? The trainer will explain and demonstrate the techniques to follow to be able to give each other massages. The masseur and the recipient then change roles as instructed by the coach. These massages take place in the castle in a special little vaulted room. Price : 70 euros for on hour massage, 130 euros for a two hours couple’s massage lesson. Massages are to be paid directly to the practitioner.

Sound massage

The sound massage, according to Peter Hess, is a method in which singing bowls are placed on the body and start to vibrate. This unique experience plunges you in to a bath of sweet and harmonious sounds which touch the very depths of your being. This technique is great for the body and mind and has a beneficial and regenerative effect. The participant takes part in this experience clothed. Serge Ebener is certified by the Peter Hess Institute and speaks French, English and German. The massage takes place at his house, 10 minutes’ walk from the chateau. The price of this experience per hour is 45 euros.
