Make a holiday villa in Valréas your home away from home

Delightful rural getaways, Valréas holiday villas are found amid hills, lavender fields, vineyards and olive groves – and on HomeAway it’s a breeze to pick out the rental that has all you need. You might want to unwind - during a summer stay at a holiday home in Valréas you’ll be able to revel in the warm weather, taking a splash in the private pool or just taking it easy in large, shaded gardens. But there’s also plenty to see and do. From your villa in Valréas you can explore the sublime countryside, delve into local traditions like cheese-making, truffle-hunting and viticulture, and pay a visit to the countless medieval and Roman towns in the area.

Things to do

-Local sights. A Papal enclave in the middle ages, Valréas is home to a number of pretty medieval churches and chapels. You can take a tour of the town, starting at the tourism office, and taking in 14 of the main sights. At Grignan there’s a medieval hillside village, with a fantastic castle. It dates originally to the 1000s, but was updated in Renaissance times and is regarded as one of France’s best monuments from this era.

-Walks. At Valréas’ tourist office you’ll be able to get detailed information about the 18 walks that can be taken from the commune. A number of these walks are devised to showcase the papal history of northern Provence, dating to the time that the pope was based in Avignon. The best evidence of this era, dotted around the countryside, are tall, carved stones from the 14th and 15th Centuries marking property boundaries and the identity of the landowners.

-Bike rides. A fabulous circular ride can be had by setting off for Visan. You’ll follow a winding lane that passes through vineyards, pine forest, fruit orchards, as well as the oak woodland where black truffles are sourced. From Visan to Richerenches your adventure will be all the more colourful and fragrant as you cycle past herb farms and fields of lavender. From there you head to Grillon and back to Valréas, with the picturesque Montagne de la Lance in the background.

-Roman history. Not far south of Valréas are some magnificent Roman towns. Orange is southwest, and has a large Roman theatre in a near-perfect state of preservation, with astounding acoustics. In Vaison-la-Romaine there’s also lots of ancient heritage in the shape of a bridge, spa and villa. There’s a small archaeological museum here with mosaics and statues. Vaison-la-Romaine also has a beautiful medieval centre.

-Local produce. Foodies could check out the nearby attractions like the snail farm, where 600,000 snails are bred for consumption every year, as well the local goat dairies. There’s also a large fresh produce market on Wednesdays in Valréas, where you’ll find season fruit and veg, as well as meat, cheese, and a host of household items. And every third Wednesday there’s the truffle market, considered one of the best and largest in Europe.

Weather in Valréas

Valréas holiday accommodation is located in a Mediterranean climate zone. Here summers are very warm and winters are mild. The hottest months are July and August, when daily highs peak at somewhere between 27 and 33 degrees. This period is also very dry, with only a couple of millimetres of rain. After August temperatures fall slowly, and there’s more rainfall. By October there are highs in the upper-teens and occasional showers. December and January days are cool, with lows just above freezing and highs around eight or nine degrees.

Travel to Valréas

International travellers to Valréas holiday homes could use Avignon Airport (AVN), which is about an hour south of the commune. It’s a small airport with a few routes to the UK, but only during the summer months. Much larger is Marseille Provence Airport (MRS), which sits 140 kilometres from Valréas, and is one of France’s busiest, with plenty of year-round connections with Britain. By car you can simply follow the A7 north and take the exit at Bollène. Given Valréas’ rural setting a car is recommended.

The location is simply sublime and the accommodation exceeded expectations. The house has been sympathetically restored and offers every mod con that you need on holiday whilst never feeling just like another holiday rental. Kitchen / diner is perfect for families and opens up onto a wonderful terrace overlooking Mont Ventoux. It gets the sun in the morning so outdoor breakfast is a must. The living area is big enough for 6-8 people whilst never feeling cramped and even has British channels for those of you who like a home from home. The three bedrooms are biggger than most people's living rooms with wonderful ensuites that means everyone has their privacy. Outdoors just carries on the relaxing homely feel. There is a large table for al fresco dining next to the superb heated pool with views to die for. There is a play area for children with swing, slide climbing frame plus a quiet courtyard that's just perfect for an early evening BBQ. All this set amongst lavender fields and vineyards that carry on for miles. A special mention to hosts Sarah and David. They were very accommodating during our stay and nothing was too much trouble for them however they also recognised the importance of making their guests feel that they were alone on their holidays and we never even noticed that they were in the property next door. Having rented many properties with similar setups it was lovely to find hosts that appreciated a families need for independence and peace, whilst also being available if there were any issues (which there weren't!). One of the best holidays we've ever had and we'll definitely return next year!

The rooms were so much nicer than they appear in the photos and the swimming pool was much larger and nicer than we expected. The owner was really helpful and was quick to reply to all our messages with good tips and advice. We were a group of 26 people including 7 children and the size of the house was just perfect for us. Highly recommended.
