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.

In heat waves daily highs can even reach the upper 30s.

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.
