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.

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.

The property is beautiful with amazing views of the Château du Barroux. The interior is very stylish and nicely decorated. The large design kitchen is fully equipped and offers stunning views. The bedrooms are spacious and immaculate. And very important: our kids approved the Wifi quality. The large swimming pool is beautifully located, with a view of the castle and a lot of space to stay either in or out of the hot July sun. Over the last 15 years we have rented quite a few villas in the Provence, but this is without a doubt the best one we stayed in. Highly recommended.

The house was exactly as it looked in the photos; full of character, clean, wonderfully quirky and had everything needed to self-cater, including a BBQ with wood provided, for outdoor dining in the comfortable, large, private & peaceful outside space. It was such a treat having a pool to dip into when you wanted to cool off from the wonderfully hot Provencal sunshine. Having said that, it was a pleasant surprise to find that the house itself, because of it's thick walls, remained at very acceptable temperature. Right from the outset the owners were most obliging and kind, helpful with suggestions of eating places, discreet, but there if you needed them. Very nice people - and the bottle of wine on arrival was greatly appreciated! The countryside around the house is beautiful and there are many, many interesting and pretty places to visit both locally within an hour's drive. One week was not long enough in this lovely place.
