Drome town-home description
The house is on four levels:
Ground floor - entrance, room with half bath, storage area with a washing machine and stairs leading to the cave (old wine cellar) Plenty of room in both rooms for bicycles, climbing equipment
Second level - large kitchen and dining area, large living room with sofa bed.
Third level - two large bedrooms, each with full bathroom. One bedroom has two single beds and the other a double.
Top level - one bedroom with two single beds and full bathroom. Landing with wet bar and fridge leading onto the roof terrace. Most of our guests dine on the terrace in the evening, looking out at the surrounding mountains and watching the swallows and swifts catching their evening meal. During the day, the terrace is a good place to read or catch some sun.
Linens are available each bedroom. Blankets are in the petrin (chest) located in the living room. On departure strip beds and place used linens in the small bedroom on the ground floor. The house will be cleaned after you depart. Please leave 60 euros cash and 20 euro per person for laundering of the linens.
Parking - there is no parking space at the house because the streets in the ville ancienne are very narrow. You can take your car down the rue de la Liberte to load and unload but remember that you will be driving through narrow spaces (we usually fold in the mirrors). Public parking is available within a very short distance (50 yards) on the Place J. Buffaven free (we have a permit in the kitchen that you can put on the dashboard of your car) and the Place des Arcades, where there is a rather complicated ticket system. There is also parking on the nearby Promenade de la Digue along the river between the Pont Neuf and Pont Roman. You must use the latter on Thursday market day, parking on the previous evening. Also do not use the Place des Arcades parking on Saturday night as in the summer there is a market on Sunday.
