The "House under the Rocks" offers relaxation and inspiration, surrounded by natural beauty and spectacular medieval scenery.
Breakfast in the shade of the fig trees, hiking over the wild slopes of the Coiron, preparing regional delicacies from the weekly markets in the bright, fully equipped eat-in kitchen, swimming in the nearby rivers, grilling and chilling on the spacious sun terraces and enjoying the beautiful wines of the region in the sunset - this is Mirabel.
Ideal for one to two families or a holiday group.
Kids and dogs are welcome!
The house is also available for a teamwork retreat or artistic projects.
- A large bright eat-in kitchen -
(42 sqm) with gas stove, oven and ample work surface, furnished by passionate hobby chefs, and leads into the sunny living room with large dining table.
On the same level there is a laundry room with washing machine, ironing set, vacuum cleaner etc. and a second WC. From the kitchen you step directly onto the terrace area:
- small terrace 1 with seating unit - ideal for dinner. The sun shines until late afternoon and evening. Next to it- larger terrace number 2 - also with seating unit, provides early sun and shade during the day. On the lower terrace number 3 with the mosaic table is the brick charcoal grill.
In addition there is a portable grill.
On the first floor:
- 3 identical rooms facing west:
- Room 1 with double bed and single bed on one level, in
- Room 2 the beds are on a loft and

- On request a small apartment with bedroom, (double and single bed) bath and kitchen (gas stove, washing machine etc.) can be also be rented.
- The upper garden gives a breathtaking view over the village into the valley.
The short drive to the garden car park leads over a very narrow bend on the slope - you can do this yourself with a minivan, but many inexperienced drivers prefer to park further down and walk the small path.
Even though you are close to nature, you do not have to forego comfort: Washing machine, dishwasher, electric kettle, microwave oven, dishes and cookware - ironing equipment does not require any compromises.
Our parents bought the property in the 70s as a dilapidated ruin and over the years have built it up and extended it in the authentic style of the historic landmark and have lovingly furnished it.
This house has been inhabited by us and our friends for a long time and has developed its own soul in which one immediately feels at home.
A detailed guest book on site offers you tips and will help you to find your way around quickly.
The longer the rental period, the cheaper it will be for you.

Mirabel is considered one of the most beautiful historic villages in France. The "Maison sous les roches" lies directly on the basalt rock of the high plateau, on which the ruins of a medieval castle are perched. From here you have a view of 2/3 of the département (region) and can enjoy wonderful walks around the Coiron. Spectacular sunsets, breathtaking landscapes, unbelievable play of colours, diverse flora and fauna - it was not for nothing that the village was a popular meeting place for artists.
Painters, musicians, actors and writers are all drawn to this inspiring setting.
Families with children love it as much as young explorers do.
Restaurants, bars, cafés, shopping and swimming facilities are available starting at a distance of 5 km (see map).
Hiking, cycling, swimming, fishing, canyoning or canoeing in the nearby Ardèche valley or simply a day's bathing at one of the nearby river bathing spots (see map) - the area offers more, rather than only the sea.
Shopping at colourful weekly markets (on some days also at night) - and cooking in the spacious kitchen-living room or simply on the terraces, surrounded by peace and beauty, reading, dreaming, painting, playing.
From the garden, where you can park, you also have a spectacular view of the valley.

We are a family with 6 children having inherited the house from our parents. Your holiday home is just a part of a larger property. To preserve the house, which has been lovingly built from ruins spanning more than 40 years, we have decided to rent out our childhood and youth home. We hope that you and your friends and family will spend as many wonderful weeks there as we do. Marcus Morlinghaus (On behalf of the Morlinghaus family)
