History of the domain
Originally, the Château de la Selve was a fortified house first on the frontier of the Empire and then of the Kingdom of France.
It then became the hunting lodge of a famous family from the Vivarais, the Dukes de Joyeuse, before being transformed, century after century, into a farm.
Built during the 13th century, it has the typical architecture of all houses and castles of the Bas-Vivarais.
Located on the bank of the Chassezac, the main Ardèche’s tributary, it benefits from a unique and protected environment.
In 1990, this magnificent house became the property of my parents, Jean-Régis and Magdeleine Chazallon.
The Château thus became familial, touristic and agricultural destination.
Today, a wing of the castle has been converted into five Gîtes de France (from 3 to 6 persons). In a large yard planted with trees, they offer a heaven of peace in the heart of the touristic Ardèche.
