About the property

unique location in the middle of vineyards, very calm, 2 kms from Bedoin

Just 1 ½ miles outside of Bédoin, lively touristic village with shops and restaurants, you'll find our historical domain. Far away from any traffic noise, you'll enjoy a superb view on the orchards of the local winefarmers. On seven acres of ground the historical domain is comprised of two small holiday houses, one holiday apartment, which is located in the owner's main house, and a 6x20 yard swimming-pool. From here you can easily discover the cultural heritage of Provence (Avignon, Orange, Arles, Nîmes, Pont du Gard,...) and the famous villages of Luberon, go cycling or hiking or just relax next to the pool.

Our apartment „Escalier" has been restored carefully, integrating the old wooden beams and stones. It is located on 2 floors of the main house, with 900 of living space. On the 1st floor you‘ll find the large livingroom with expandable sleeping couch and open kitchen. The second floor consists of 2 bedrooms with king-size double beds, bathroom and separate toilet. The private terrasse is located next to the large 6x20m infinity pool, which offers overwhelming views on the vineyards.

Wonderful vacation in the heart of Provence

  • 5 of 5

We were two couples staying at L’Escalier for the first two weeks of September 2011, having a wonderful time.

The apartment is very spacious and comfortable, with all the necessities needed, including washing machine and dish washer.

The large pool area is simply fantastic; with a beautiful view over surrounding hills and vineyards, and just beside the pool area, L’Escalier has its own small terrace in shadow of the fig trees.

Our hosts, Adele and Rainer, were extremely kind and helpful, and made us really feel welcome at the wonderful, tranquil Mas des Templiers.

The whole region around Mont Ventoux is very beautiful and provides numerous possibilities for different kinds of physical activities such as hiking and biking, usually in wonderful sceneries.

It is not fair to select specific places of interest but the breathtaking Gorges de la Nesque is a must, and we also very much enjoyed the whole area around the Dentelles de Montmirail, with villages such as Seguret, Gigondas and Beaumes-de-Venise (where there are of course plenty of opportunities for tasting some excellent wine). We can also recommend a trip to Avignon (to see the Popes' Palace and Pont d'Avignon), and to the beautiful little town of L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue (the "Venice of Provence").

In the close vicinity of Mas des Templiers you’ll find small, charming villages like Bedoin (of course), Flassan, Villes-sur-Auzon, Le Barroux, and Caromb, and many more. But you should actually make your own experiences.

And if you like visiting Provencal markets, one of the best is most probably the Monday market in Bedoin itself, providing many local products and specialties.

Needless to say that we have already booked for two weeks in September 2012, this time in the smaller L’Atelier, being only one couple next time.

Our stay at Mas des Templiers near Bedoin

  • 5 of 5

Great location, great views and a lovely Infinity pool. A pleasant short walk through the vineyards to the village. L'Escalier is the perfect Suite for parents with children, a generous living/dining room, two spacious bedrooms, cooking and laundry facilities. Adele and Rainer are wonderful hosts, and provided excellent recommendations for dining, hiking and touring.

Fijn appartement op prachtige locatie.

  • 5 of 5

Ruim en schoon appartement voorzien van alle gemakken. De ingang van het appartement is de voordeur/hal van de eigenaren (niet storend). In de tuin bij het zwembad is er de beschikking over een eigen tuinterrasje. Persoonlijk vonden wij het jammer dat er geen buiten-zit-gelegenheid direct vanuit het appartement was. Hoewel het tuinterras en de mogelijkheid om bij het zwembad te zitten verder prima zijn. Het laatste gedeelte van de weg omhoog naar het huis is onverhard en hobbelig. Maar dan zit je ook in een oude Mas op een idyllische plek met prachtig uitzicht bij zeer gastvrije verhuurders.

Zeer goed uitgerust appartement op mooie locatie

  • 5 of 5

Ruim, schoon en verzorgd appartement over 2 verdiepingen in een oude Mas, voorzien van alle gemakken. Zeer vriendelijke eigenaren.

Ingang van het appartement via de voordeur/hal van de eigenaren (niet storend). Bij het zwembad in de tuin beschik je over een eigen tuinterrasje. Persoonlijk vonden wij het jammer dat er geen "buiten-zit-mogelijkheid" direct bij het appartement is. Hoewel het tuinterras en het terras bij het zwembad verder prima voldeden. Het laatste stuk van de weg er naar toe is onverhard met stenen. Erg hobbelig maar wel te doen met de auto.

Wonderful holiday home in Provence!

  • 5 of 5

This vacation home is exactly what we have imagined a vacation home in Provence should be - secluded, peaceful, relaxing oasis to enjoy your time and family. Situated in the middle of vinyards and nature, but close enough to all the conveniences one needs - grocery stores, bakery, restaurants and shopping.

The apartment is meticulously clean and very comfortable, well equipped kitchen, Internet, etc. The Marian family is simply wonderful, they are gracious hosts, very friendly and always available to give any guidance and any excursion/itinerary suggestions. Will definitely come back!

Thank you Adele and Rainer

Bédoins situation at the south slope of the 6260 ft. high Mount Ventoux explains its unique Mediterranean climate. 50 miles north of the French Riviera the 'Mistral' (strong north wind down the Rhone valley) blows away the clouds and is the reason for our beautiful weather. The village itself is protected from the wind by the mountain.

Here you will find apricots growing next to wine, asparagus next to lavender. Bédoin can call its own one of the largest forests of all French communities. It is the ideal starting point for a cultural journey through the South of France. Regardless of whether you want to visit the Pope's Palace in Avignon, the Pont du Gard near Nîmes, the antique theatre of Orange or the unique canyon of Nesque, you are less than an hour away. Within a 7 mile distance you find the Château du Barroux or the middle-age castle of Crillon-le-Brave.

Bédoin is famous for cyclists, and there are several streetbike and mountain bike rentals in the village. Tennis on hard courts is also possible. The beautiful surrounding invites you for walking and hiking (55 paths in Bedoin, 2500 miles of trails in Vaucluse), rock climbing with grades of difficulty ranging from 3 to 7b, riding (2 stables in Bedoin), treeclimbing in Mormoiron (3 km), para-gliding from Mount Ventoux, golfing on wonderful courses for pros as well as beginners (35 min.) or canooing on the Sorgue river (35 min.).
