EXCEPTIONAL 19TH CENTURY ESTATE, COVERED POOL, PROVENCAL LANDSCAPES, VINEYARD

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Laudun - Domaine des Charmettes

Maison 'Olivier' sleeps 6 to 8 and Maison 'Lavande' sleeps 4 to 6

The Domaine des Charmettes is set a Provencal landscape of rock-walled flower gardens filled with Mediterranean plants, roses, lavender, basil, and rosemary framed by olive trees, old parasol pine and cypress trees.

An elegant 19th century vineyard made up of 3 houses and numerous outbuildings surrounded by 1 hectare of vines and 1 hectare of gardens and woods. We make and bottle our own red and rosé wine. Situated in a quiet area at the edge of the village of Laudun, the Domaine is a wonderful vacation spot, a quiet haven of tranquility on the Western edge of Provence.

Laudun is just south of Bagnols sur ceze in the northern part of the Languedoc Roussillon region. The village is well known for gallo-roman ruins and famous for its “Côtes du Rhône Village wines.

In the “pool area”, there is a very large enclosed swimming pool with sun beds and garden furniture The covered sitting area is a perfect place to sit back with a cup of coffee or a glass of wine and just relax.

Ideal place for couples and families who want to enjoy the 'sunny life' of Provence and Southern France. The 'Domaine' is extremely well situated for day trips in and around the region. Laudun is centrally located for trips to Chateauneauf du Pape, Avignon, Pont du Gard, Nimes, Uzès, the Ceze Valley, and the 'Gorges de l'Ardeche'. The Mediterranean and its wonderful beaches are just over an hour's drive.

Have had a wonderful holiday! Lovely area, comfortable, well-equipped house with a superb pool area. Laura and Thierry are very welcoming + friendly. Good centre to explore the surrounding areas. Camp César is a wonderful walk as is the wood behind the house. Loads of butterflies and wildflowers... Will be back to see more of the area!

Thank you for your wonderful hospitality & accomodation we have loved being here in paradise! This is certainly a wonderful part of the world. Visiting Avignon, Uzes and canoing the Pont du Gard was superb. BBq's and swimming were Monique's favourite. We truly have enjoyed our Provence experience. We are sad to leave. Cheers!

Where do I start!? Thierry & Laura you have outdone yourselves with your genuine hospitality. Our stay with you could not have been better. We had a wonderful time touring Provence It was all we expected and more.

We found this property at the last minute and were pleasantly surprised by the spacious layout, the kitchen, and outside barbeque and patio. It was easy to relax in the space (we stayed in the three-bedroom rental), and the owners were very friendly and helpful. The owners make their own wine, honey and jam, and also keep a few chickens and goats. Even though the vacation rentals are on the same property as the owners' home, the vacation rentals feel private.

My wife and I spent a great week and have nothing but good things to say about this location and property. It is a great spot, in a very quite but accessible part of France, close to great wine regions, but also being itself in one of the great wine areas in France. Laura was very helpful to us and was very accommodating and engaging. The house is completely private and you have a great view, but also a great area for dining outside. The Kitchen was well equipped and very easy to use and the rooms were large and accommodating. There were four of us, and it could easily accommodate six people with three bathrooms. We really had a great time there and would highly recommend it for others who are interested in this part of France, which in my view is even more beautiful than Provence. The wine is better and the food is also exceptional... Many very interesting small villages near by so you can keep busy going to markets etc, of simply stay by the pool, which is exceptionally beautiful, with lots of shade and sunshine....

Fantastic holiday in Laudun!

We had a wonderful time in this fantastic villa in the middle of a private vineyard. Laura and Thierry were lovely and very helpful and welcomed us with some of their own wine which was fantastic. They also "dressed" us a bottle or Rose for our daughter. We made very good friends with Laya their dog who always came to welcome us when we arrived back from a day of exploring. We loved the pool area and spent several evenings at the pool admiring the view although we also loved our own patio. We ate in most nights preferring to barbecue and there were 2 supermarkets nearby for our needs. We did eat out in Orange which had a good variety of restaurants to choose from. There was lots to do in the surrounding area. We visited Avignon, Pont du Gard, Chateauneuf du Pape and went kayacking in the Ardeche. We also managed a trip to watch the start of the 15th stage of the Tour de France which was great. The property was very comfortable; comfy beds and ceiling fans made sleeping easy in the high temperatures. The whole villa was clean and very well equipped. I would definitely recommend this villa. You need a car but it is easily reached from Nimes or Bezzier (cheap flights from UK by Ryanair). Thank you laura and Thierry for a wonderful stay!

We had a wonderful, wonderful time at Laura and Thierry's house. They were consummate hosts and made us feel very welcome while always respecting our privacy. We were at Domaine des Charmettes for three weeks and had many different guests coming and going. We felt so at home started to refer to it as 'our house in France.' The grounds are beautiful, the beds are comfortable, the kitchen is a family kitchen with all the appliances (including a dishwasher, which came in handy as we had many evening meals under the stars.) If you are a cyclist, there are wonderful rides around Laudun. We travel quite a bit, and we count this as one of our favorite vacations. What’s not to love? A great house with a pool, lovely people, oh-so beautiful food and wine, and a vineyard right outside of your window?
