Make a holiday rental home or cottage in Malaucene, France your home away from home

Dating back to the 10th Century, Malaucene could be regarded as a typical village in Provence. The picturesque village centre and the beautiful surrounding countryside are the main draw for visitors, and these are complimented by the presence of a traditional weekly food market, and some excellent wineries on the outskirts of the village. Accommodation in the area includes traditional townhouses in the village centre and luxury villas and cottages on the outskirts of Malaucene.

Things to do in Malaucene, France

A walk around the centre of the village is a great place to start your holiday, with buildings of Gallic, Roman and Medieval influences all waiting to be discovered. These include ancient fountains, wash houses and regular buildings – some of which remain as private residences, others of which are now home to cafes, bars and restaurants. Arguably the most important building in the village is the 1309 Church of St. Michel and St. Pierre, which blends Romanesque and Gothic styles and is open for public viewing all year round.

The Haut-Valcluese region is renowned for its excellent countryside, and Malaucene is the starting point for several walking and hiking trails that lead to Mont Vernoux. The best of these leads up to the top of Calvere, and rewards those who make the effort with excellent views of the village and surrounding area. A number of other leisure options can also be enjoyed out in the countryside, including horse riding, climbing, fishing and paragliding.

The Wednesday morning market is a particularly popular local event, and the number one place to pick up locally produced food and wine. Meats, cheeses, olives and salami are regarded as the local specialities, and can be picked up at bargain prices. Many stalls also sell non-edible items, such as clothes, artwork and pottery, allowing you to pick up some authentic locally-produced gifts to take back home with you.

The house was immaculate and has all the amenities you require! We were 2 families sharing the property and never felt on top of each other. The pool and garden were fabulous for the kids and we spent many a day relaxing and swimming. The property is extremely well appointed, whether you want to pop in to Malaucene in the morning to pick up pastries, visit one of the many markets in the surrounding villages or venture up Mont Ventoux. We also enjoyed playing tennis in Malaucene and visiting the Gorges de Tourelanc- which was just perfect for a picnic (remember your river shoes!). The hosts Tony and Veronica were amazing- very helpful and attentive, always on hand to give us tips on the area and ensure we had everything we needed. Thanks for a fabulous stay, we will definitely be back! Uitstekend!!!

This is an ideal base for cyclists with easy access to Bedoin and Mont Ventoux. The owners made us feel extremely welcome and were very helpful with providing us with local information and details for our requirements for watching The Tour de France. The property has everything required for a comfortable and relaxing holiday. We had barbeques on the terrace in the evenings and enjoyed the breathtaking views. We will definitely be returning.

This has been one of our very best holidays. The house was lovely, very comfortable, spotlessly clean and well equipped it is prettily decorated in a rustic French style suited to its age and location. Externally, it is set in lovely gardens and shares a very pleasant pool with guests staying at the B and B. It exceeded our expectation given the description and photographs. Stephanie is the perfect host. Very helpful, accommodating and friendly. Nothing was too much trouble. She offers a table de hote, given sufficient notice, and her cooking is superb. This was the best Provencale food we ate during our stay. The area is stunning, having much to offer cyclists and walkers and with some fantastic historical sites. The market at Bedoin is well worth the visit. We are hoping to return to this lovely property and the hospitality of Stephanie next year. Heartily recommended.
