Make a villa in Grillon your home away from home

Holiday villas in Grillon give visitors an excellent opportunity to experience life in a picturesque medieval French village surrounded by 12th-century ramparts. Grillon rentals are set amid quite gentle terrain, which makes this prime cycling country; there are several bike routes running through the village, great to practice on before tackling the rolling hills of Provence or the majestic mountains of the Alps, both of which are nearby. Gunpowder, bricks, wine and silk were the mainstays of Grillon's industrial heritage, and the caves beneath the village were used for the production of the former in case of any 'accidents'. The magnificent Renaissance castle at Grignan is only a couple of miles away, too, and one of many must-see attractions when staying in central Grillon accommodation.

Grillon holiday rentals are some of the best equipped HomeAway offer; nearly all have a pool, fully-equipped kitchens and a private barbecue area. Most also have internet access, satellite TV and a DVD player as standard. Sadly, Grillon is quite a distance from the sea, but HomeAway does have a wealth of more coastal accommodation in the region, if sun, sea and sand is on the agenda.

Things to do

Food and drink: Grillon holiday homes are a great central base for the gourmand: the village itself has a handful of restaurants, with the most popular being La Truffe Noire in the central village square. Provencal food derives influence from the spices and seafood of the Mediterranean and a greater use of goat's milk because of the mountainous terrain; goats require less pasture than cows.

Outdoor pursuits: Accommodation in Grillon is right by a confluence of cycle paths, making this a prime destination for fans of the velo. There are no fewer than five routes passing through, meaning an entire holiday could be given over to daily rides through this most breathtaking scenery. In the winter, Grillon is close enough to the Alps to take advantage of the skiing.

Shopping: While Grillon does not have its own market, Grignan has one every Tuesday, about two miles away. The nearest proper supermarket is at Valreas, a couple of miles southeast. For real French city shopping, Montelimar is about 15 miles away, and Nyons is great for souvenirs, about 11 miles to the east. For this reason, a hire car or bicycle would make for a truly well-rounded holiday.

Culture: The Roman theatre at Orange, about 20 miles away, is one of the finest preserved ancient sites in the world, and has got to be on anyone's must-see list. The Triumphal Arch is located here, too. In Grillon, there is a miniature village museum, and nearby Grignan has its printing museum as well as, of course, the castle.

Weather in Grillon

Grillon has the Mediterranean climate of hot summers and mild winters, with occasional forays into frosty conditions when the famed Mistral wind blows through. Average summer temperatures hover around the high-20s °C, while winter days typically see low-teens as the maximum. Most of the precipitation happens during the autumn and winter, which makes the nearby Alps so good for skiing.

Travel to Grillon

There are direct seasonal flights into Avignon-Caumont Airport from the UK, which is only about an hour's drive from Grillon. Montpellier and Marseille airports offer additional options, each about 90 miles away. Grillon is driveable from the UK, however, with a trip from London taking 10-11 hours driving time. Grillon is also about 20 miles from Montelimar train station.

The property is beautifully decorated, exceptionally clean and well appointed with everything you could need. The peace and quiet of the location is unrivalled but equally the surrounding villages are close by if you want to get out and about. The owners were very friendly and helpful.

The cycling trips, including the climb of Mt Ventoux were some of the best we have experienced. The additional kindness of Véronique and Bernard Mignot made this vacation very memorable!
