Things to do

-Local heritage. Séguret is a local village, listed as one of France’s most beautiful. It sits at the base of a steep hill and has a strong medieval character, with cobbled streets, vaulted passageways and handsome squares with fountains. Vaison-la-Romaine is also in a hilly landscape, clad with vineyards and forest. The upper town is medieval in origin and is dominated by the Chateau of the Counts of Toulouse.

-Roman history. The city of Orange has one of the best preserved Roman monuments in the world. The Thèâtre antique d’Orange is UNESCO-listed and is cherished because its stage wall is still intact after 2000 years. The other famous structure in Orange, the Triumphal Arch, is also perfectly preserved, featuring reliefs depicting military scenes. The nearby village of Vaison-la-Romaine also has a Roman bridge crossing the Ouvèze.

-Viticulture. Roaix is listed as part of the AOC protected Côtes du Rhône Villages. You can take walks and bike rides next to these vineyards. All around you’ll find caves and wineries that can be visited for tasting sessions – you can also meet the owners and get to know the historic craft and techniques of winemaking here; just moments from Roaix is Vintner’s Museum, with a collection of instruments and tools, as well as a cellar with some 2000 bottles.

-Outdoor activities. To the south you can see the jagged outline of the Dentelles de Montmirail mountain range. The tops of these mountains have sheer cliffs, creating perfect terrain for rock climbers. And whether you’re a serious hiker or casual wanderer you can find a trail that matches up – you can wend your way through the entire range on the grand randonée or pick a less challenging circular trail.

-Days out. If you’d like to take an excursion then there’s lots to see in Provence. Directly south is the Alpilles Natural Park, a landscape that Vincent van Gogh painted in the late-19th Century. Hidden here is Glanum, an ancient city filled with impressive ruins. Standing to the east at more than 1900 metres Mont Ventoux is steeped in local folklore and even has a ski resort in the winter months.

Weather in Roaix

Roaix is in a Mediterranean climate zone, with dry summers and winters. May through September sees daily temperatures peak between 25 and 33 degrees. In heat waves daily highs can even reach the upper 30s. If you come to holiday accommodation in Roaix in spring or autumn then milder, damper conditions await, with temperatures in the mid to high-teens by day. Winters are short and moderate in Roaix – snow is uncommon, and temperatures rest somewhere between two and ten degrees.

Travel to Roaix

One way to get to a Roaix holiday home from Britain would be to fly to Avignon-Caumont Airport (AVN), which is 60 kilometres south of the commune. This small airport handles only a couple of routes to and from the UK, and only during the summer. Marseille Provence Airport (MRS), is twice the distance but, as one of France’s main air transport hubs, there’s a wealth of links to Britain. Despite the distance, the drive is easy – you simply take the A7 Autoroute du Soleil up to exit 22 at Orange, and get onto the D977 towards Vaison-la-Romaine.

The photo's are very accurate and it is exactly as shown.The apartment was perfect for us with enough room, very clean and very tastefully decorated and furnished. There is plenty of outdoor space in Eliette's beautiful garden. We had lunch and dinner on the shady terrace with fantastic views of the Dentelles de Montmirail and in the evening beautiful sunsets. Plenty of places to sit and read in the garden, either in the sun or shade of olive trees. The pool was also an added bonus and we had it to ourselves. The apartment was fully equipped with modern appliances and everything you would need, including luxurious bathrobes- Eliette has thought of everything! There were also lots of information leaflets on the area. The apartment is set among vineyards a very easy 2 kms drive from Vaison la Romaine where there is loads of free parking. In Vaison itself there are lots of restaurants of varying prices and a variety of shops. The 'new' town is great and has a very nice square with reasonably priced cafés and restaurants. There are 3 out of town supermarkets : Super U and Lidl are the nearest and Intermarché is a bit further away. Tuesday mornings there is a big market throughout the town. The old town is delightful and well worth exploring as are the Roman ruins,of course. We climbed up to the castle for some great views over Vaison. There are loads of places to explore within easy distance of the apartment ; Gigondas, Seguret (nice tea shop)Nyons ( great Thursday market),the wine villages to the west of Nyons were an unexpected find, Villedieu-lovely café on the square. Further afield there is L'Isle sur la Sorgue ( market on Sunday) La Fontaine de Vaucluse, the Luberon villages (Gordes-market on Tuesday-park out of town up the hill and get the free shuttle bus) , Oppede le Vieux, Roussillon etc. Eliette is the perfect host-a really delightful,warm, friendly person who is there for help and advice if needed but also very discreet.We would definitely recommend staying here if you want a peaceful relaxing holiday with lovely Provencal towns/villages to explore.

                                                                                                    5 of 5
                                                                                                    We had such a fantastic holiday at L'Ameillaud, it really was perfect. We were 9 altogether, also coming and going at various times, and the house worked very well for us. So lovely and restful and so light everywhere with soft muted colours , and excellant air conditioning in the bedrooms, which was definitely needed as the weather was 34C on several days. We were very fortunate to be about at the start of the grape harvest in the area, which was very interesting for us as each Domaine, and there were very many, had there own distinctive rose' and red wine and it was so easy just to turn up and taste! This whole area of Provence spoils one for choice with the plethora of beautiful hill side stone villages, wonderful gastronomic restaurants and of course, wine! Nick and Sabine were very welcoming and helpful hosts, suggesting restaurants and Domaines to visit and lots of "stuff" to do in the area, such as driving to the top of Mount Ventoux. We also took our 2 small dogs and L'Ameillaud was perfect and safe for them . Loved the Two weeks we were there and highly recommend this property and this part of France! Thanks so much Sabine and Nick. Regards Rob and Shellee Lawson

                                                                                                    5 of 5

The house is a lot bigger that appears on the photos, beautifully furnished with amazing art and antiques. there are 2 dining tables indoors and 2 outdoors, so we ate out as often as possible. There were some lovely touches, such as fresh bars of soap in all the bathrooms As mentioned, the streets are very narrow, we did get our Clio up with about an inch clearance, providing valuable entertainment for the tourists. I would willingly go back there again !
