Discover our pretty, peaceful garden in a small valley off the main roads, just 6km from the lively town of Die. Pitch your tent or use our equipment (on request) and enjoy the simplicity of our setting. Be self-sufficient for your meals with the small kitchen in the cabin. Dry toilets and solar shower or shower in our house, weather permitting. 1/2 board available on request. We look forward to welcoming you.
The small village of Ponet, built around its temple and church, is typical of the area. Its semi-circular architecture lends it a great deal of authenticity. The stone houses have been well renovated in recent years. The village is lively and quiet, with 50 Ponet residents year-round. The vineyards that produce the famous Clairette de Die, the lavender and cereal fields, the pine forest and the small stream are just some of the landscapes you can discover here. The garden features a vegetable garden, fruit trees, flowering shrubs, flowers and 2 ponds populated by toads and other aquatic plants. A few personal sculptures in metal, wood or stone are scattered throughout. Discover also the beautiful collection of pebbles gleaned from our travels.
Shady, flower-filled terraced garden for 2/3-person tent. Accessible only on foot. Parking on village square approx. 200 m away. Loan of trailer to transport your luggage. Bikes can be parked and recharged in our garage.
The sanitary facilities
Dry toilets and outdoor shower with a great view of nature. The water is stored in a canister in the sun, which is how the water heats up, although this is not always a guarantee of its temperature. In the cabin, there's a corner with toilet facilities (1 basin and 1 large ceramic pitcher for old-fashioned washing!). Depending on the season and the weather, our bathroom is also available.
Kitchenette with 2 gas rings, electric kettle, Italian coffee maker, fridge, crockery, pots and pans, etc. A few basic products are provided (salt, pepper, coffee, sugar). A spring comes into the cabin, but it's not exactly running water! But don't worry, we provide drinking water in cans.
Garden furniture, hammock, barbecue area. Electricity for charging batteries or laptops. Garden and cabin lighting.
Hiking is king here. Whether you're on foot, horseback, road bike or mountain bike, you'll easily find the route that's right for you. Swimming in the Drôme river, just 4km from the village, is also very pleasant. The town of Die, with its long history dating back to antiquity, is well worth a visit. 2 weekly markets on Wednesdays and Saturdays, and numerous sporting and cultural events throughout the Diois.
Please note that there are no shops in the village. Stock up in Die before driving the remaining 6km to our place. Or ask us for half-board, 12€ evening meal, 5€ breakfast, subject to availability.

Virginie and her husband are welcoming, as is their poetic garden, set away from the crowds in a peaceful setting.
They know how to pass on their knowledge of the region and its history, and the village is dynamic.
The possibility of sharing an evening meal is a nice bonus.
Virginie welcomed us very well, her little corner of paradise is very pleasant, we spent 2 very nice nights, thank you.
I really appreciated the charm of this place. The grounds feature several beautifully landscaped terraces, surrounded by nature and a beautiful view of the hills.
In addition, the kitchen area is well equipped with fridge, hotplates and kettle. In case of rain, a sitting area provides shelter.
There's also a pump-operated outdoor shower for cooling off.
Virginie made me feel very welcome, which contributed to my well-being here.
I chose to sleep in one of the tents set up by Virginie to minimize the need to carry my belongings. The site is below the village, so it's not possible to get there by car.
Virginie's warm welcome, terrace for camping in a magical place, with well thought-out and tastefully designed amenities. I also really appreciated the little cart! Ideal place to set off on a hike.
