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 house is spacious, generously equipped and very comfortable and clean. Stepping outside the kitchen to have breakfast on the terrace we were stunned each morning by the view of Mont Ventoux. We enjoyed relaxing in the garden which has shady trees, beautiful flowers and an inspiring vegetable garden. Marc and Nadia were welcoming and friendly and so generous with their wonderful Provencal garden produce. It was a pleasure to talk with them - they are superb ambassadors for Provencal life and just lovely people! We enjoyed hiring bikes and the fantastic cycling on the doorstep; a great range of well marked walks; and visiting nearby hilltop villages and markets. We would highly recommend a stay at Farmhouse St Quentin.
