Beautiful house in beautiful grounds

  • 5 of 5

We had 9 nights here. If only the weather had been as good as the house! L'Oasis is spacious and beautifully furnished. Lots of space both inside and outside on the balconies or on the patio or just lying on the lawns. The property is on the edge of town within walking distance of the centre of Buis-les-Baronnies. Buis is a small attractive town with a long history and some bustling bars and restaurants. The surroundings are mountainous, green and beautiful.

We were on a rock-climbing trip, and were perfectly situated, with the nearest climbing less than a mile away.

Mireille, the owner speaks perfect english and is very welcoming and helpful.

Very nice, spacious villa set in large gardens

  • 5 of 5

The house is very nice, and is situated in a large garden with lots of seating, either in or out of the sunshine.

It is well looked after and the living rooms are large and airy, with lots of big windows and light coming in.

For climbers, you can sit on the balcony looking up at Rocher St Julien

(north face though, so not the climbing side).

Buis is a nice little village with a few bars and a couple of good restaurants, and surrounded by some tremendous countryside

(including lots of famous Cote du Rhone Villages appellations - if you like that sort of thing).

Lovely House and gardens

  • 5 of 5

Great property with all the facilities we needed. Lovely sitting room and fantastic garden. Easy walking distance to the town where there are lots of restaurants. Excellent location - we were cycling and the area is superb. Mireille could not have been more helpful - thank you from all at Barnes Cycling Club.

Séjour très agréable, belle maison bien aménagée, très propre, décorée avec gout, bonne literie soignée. À l'extérieur une belle véranda et un grand jardin certainement très agréable en été. Lieu très calme et reposant

Excellent accueil de la propriétaire, très attentionnée.

Wonderful house in peaceful setting in delightful town.

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in L'Oasis. The house is as described: charming in a panoramic setting. Mireille was the perfect host: communicative and very helpful. The house itself is beautifully light filled and extremely comfortable and spacious. The kitchen is exceptionally well equipped. The garden is beautiful: large with plenty of shady spots, lots of outdoor seating and wonderful views of the surrounding hills. The house is an easy walk from the centre of town, and yet you feel away from it all. We had a lovely time here and we would definitely come again.

Situated in Upper Provence on the border of Drôme and the region Provence-Alpes-Côte d´Azur, Buis (370m alt.) is 20 km from Vaison-la-Romaine, 35 km from the "Giant of Provence", Mount Ventoux (1917m), 60 km from Avignon.

This prealpine region offers a varied climate, an alpine as well a mediterranean flora, a protection from the "mistral", a wind frequent in nearby Vaucluse.

It boasts a rich gastronomy based on specialities like olives, goat cheese, Baronnies lamb, cherries, apricots, wines, aromatic herbs. Buis was the origin of the herb company Ducros! The upper Ouvèze valley is a delight with its deep blue lavender fields. And everywhere, the song of the locusts...

Its dry, most healthy mediterranean climate (no mosquitoes) makes for crystal- clear blue skies and remarkable starry nights.

With its 2400 inhabitants the village is a little regional centre endowed with three supermarkets, a cinema, a concert hall, adequate medical facilities. The daily and weekly European press is available everyday at Carrefour and at Maison de la Presse.

But it is essentially a little paradise for holiday-making, hiking, climbing, cycling and outdoor sports. The ideal seasons for cycling and climbing are the spring and the autumn. If the touristic season par excellence is Easter to October, Buis hosts guests all year round. Regional, national and international sports competitions take place in Buis in various disciplines throughout the touristic season.

Buis is situated on the GR9 national hiking trail passing by Mount Saint-Julien (one of the three classified climbing sites). It is also a starting point for horse rides thanks to several riding schools. Bicycle and mountain bike fans will relish excursions on even ground or steep slopes. The boldest will come to grips with Mount Ventoux! Nearby are opportunities for wilderness swimming.

The guides´ office, opposite the walkway lined with plane trees, offers climbing, via ferrata, canyoning, water excursions, potholing, two-seater paragliding and training sessions. Some excursion centres are specialized in hiking, horse, bicycle, mountain bike and motorbike rides, tours by car and quad and in training sessions. Two other paragliding schools offer one day trials as well as training sessions with aerial video recording.

The via ferrata - 1700m, the second longest in Europe - comprises 4 itineraries with increasing difficulty, one of which being an initiation. It is equipped wth cables, stairs, aerial bridges and footpaths. Acrobatic by nature, the via ferrata allows hikers to discover the world of mountaineering thanks to a playful mountain activity between hiking and climbing. As a reminder, the first via ferrata was created in the Italian Dolomites during the 1914-1918 war to transport men and artillery.

But you also come to Buis to visit and treasure a well-restored heritage, a charming village with its medieval centre, its plane- tree-lined walkways, its pétanque fields, its typical panorama, its Provencal market.

Southern Drôme and bordering Vaucluse offer a wide range of natural and architectural sightseeing sites : castles, abbeys, fortified uphill villages, museums, Roman vestiges (Vaison-la-Romaine, Orange), the Pope Palace in Avignon.

Buis also hosts lots of cultural events during the summer :

_ Classical music festival (Sérénades en Baronnies)

- Festival de Jazz (Parfum de Jazz)

- Flute festival (Trio d´Argent)

- Theatrical shows (several companies)

- Concerts in the church, the concert hall, in the town hall garden, in the courtyard of the former dominican monastery etc.

The full agenda can be consulted at Office de Tourisme in Buis.

Nearby, the Roman amphitheatres of Vaison-la-Romaine and Orange as well as the Pope Palace in Avignon organize quality theatrical and musical festivals. Besides, Vaison is in Europe a centre for choir singing with frequent international competitions.

But let´s not forget pure relaxation! For a few hours - or a cure - the spa in Montbrun-les-Bains welcomes you 28km from Buis.
