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.

Places to visit on holiday in Malaucene, France

Some of the excellent wine-producing areas of the Cote du Rhone region are within a short distance of Malaucene, including Gigondas (22km) and Rasteau (21km), and make for excellent day trips where you can tour the vineyards and taste their produce to your heart’s content. Just 10km from Malaucene is the beautiful town of Vaison-la-Romaine, which is home to some fantastic Roman ruins and is a must-see for anyone visiting the region.

Weather in Malaucene, France

The climate of the Haut-Vaucluse region is excellent for wine production, meaning long, hot summers and mild winters. July and August are the hottest times in which to visit, though it is recommended that you book your accommodation well in advance if planning to holiday in Malaucene during this popular period.

Facilities are top class, garden and pool idyllic. The equipment inside is comprehensive. The outside eating area fabulous. Being cyclists and walkers we were central to excellent riding routes and the walk down the Toulourenc Valley nearby is spectacular. The place is spotless and well maintained.

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.
