Detailed description

Do you want to go on holiday in the Drôme area in Southeast France? You are very welcome at Le Grand Bois. In our guesthouse we have four rooms and an apartment, each with its own character. The Nova Zembla room is the only one on the second floor and is very popular, thanks in part to its own terrace.

Le Grand Bois officially belongs to the town of Le Poët-Célard, with places such as Saoû, Dieulefit and Bourdeaux a few kilometers away. The area is perfect for activities. Consider, for example, taking (mountain) walks or visiting various places in the region. On our environment page we keep track of which activities there are.

Room with terrace in southern France

From Nova Zembla you overlook the sunbathing lawn and the swimming pool. The room is suitable for two people, but you can also spend the night with three. In that case we can place a folding bed. The room is 17 square meters in size. This chambre d’hôte has a private bathroom, fridge, kettle and Nespresso coffee maker. There is also a television. On the first floor is a microwave for general use.

When you book Nova Zembla, this includes breakfast. We serve a French breakfast, expanded with fresh fruit, orange juice, yogurt and savory and sweet treats. In our kitchen we provide dinner as well as breakfast. This is how we serve a daily special. In the off season we offer a changing dish on reservation, in the high season our restaurant is fully open. We will take your dietary requirements into account upon request.

Arrival and departure

For our rooms, you can decide on which day you want to come and when you want to leave. So you can choose whether you want to rent La Prairie for one night or for several nights. You are welcome in La Prairie from 4 pm on the day of arrival until 10 am on the day of departure.

Our guesthouse has a nice outdoor swimming pool

As a guest in our inn/guesthouse you can also use the facilities of the campsite. This way you can use our swimming pool during the hot days. The swimming pool is open every day from 9 am to 7 pm from May to September. We also have a common room with a wood burning stove and lounge area.

Our inn is suitable for a total of 15 people. Are you with more than two people? In addition to Nova Zembla, we also rent three other chambre d’hôtes (Le Sérail, L’Aile and La Prairie). In addition, we also rent out a spacious 4-person holiday apartment (La Soierie). Our chalet La Nouba, suitable for six people, can also be reserved all year round.

Holiday home in Drôme

Are you specifically looking for a holiday home in a special place in France? Then you are at the right place at Le Grand Bois. We are Eelco Grebel and Jolande Siepman and since 2005 we live in the beautiful area De Drôme in southern France, after having lived in Utrecht for many years. This part of France is also called the Tuscany of France. Our French guests also call this place “Un coin de paradis”, a paradise spot. Le Grand Bois was originally an inn and already existed in 1780. So more than two hundred years. A long time, in which much has changed.

We have invested a lot in recent years to improve our site. All facilities at the campsite and the inn have been taken in hand and the swimming pool, café / restaurant and lounge area have also been renewed. We think it is especially important that our guests relax here and can enjoy each other and the environment. To discover the area we have handy guides with tips and leaflets with activities. Of course we are always there for you if you want more information.

We look forward to welcoming you and your family or friends to our inn. See you soon! Do you still have questions? We are happy to answer that, for example via our chat service. In any case, also check out our reservation conditions.
