Relaxing and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 9 nights at the end of June 2016. We chose this property because of the outdoor space and the peaceful surroundings that other reviewers had spoken about. We were not disappointed. We had a very warm welcome from the owner's two daughters and the property was well equipped. We were grateful for the air conditioning and the fans within the property. It was also a real bonus to have wifi which you could get in the house but also sat on the small cafe table just outside the main doorway.

We used the garden and the pool everyday and loved to sit and watch the sunset each night with a glass ( or two) of wine.

We brought our bicycles with us and rode two of the way marked routes that practically go past the front door. They were very easy to follow and can be found on the Provence cycling website to download.

Overall, we had a fabulous relaxing stay, full of sunshine and rest. It is definitely a property that we would return to.

Beau à l'extérieur, petit à l'intérieur (à déconseiller pour + de 3-4 personnes)

  • 3 of 5

L'extérieur de la maison est très joli et l'emplacement au milieu des vignes des plus charmant. La piscine est très agréable et il y a largement suffisamment de place. Il s'agit vraiment du point fort de cette location. L'équipement extérieur fourni (grill, table d'extérieur,...) manque cependant un peu d'entretien.

L'intérieur de la bergerie est assez exigu. A notre sens, cette location ne convient absolument pas pour 6 personnes durant une semaine. Les chambres ont du charme mais sont petites et il y est difficile d'y entreposer les valises. La pièce à vivre ne comporte qu'un bar et une table basse. Pas pratique pour manger ou faire des activités les jours de pluie. Contrairement à la description, il n'y a pas deux salles de bain. (Il y a une douche/WC à l'extérieur "pour la piscine...")

Le reste de la propriété est gardée par deux toutous qui font très bien leur travail! Cela ne nous a pas posé trop de problème (ils ne peuvent pas venir dans votre partie de la propriété), mais mieux vaut ne pas avoir peur des chiens.

A conseiller donc pour un couple avec au maximum 1-2 enfants, et par beau temps! ;-)

Location pendant les vacances de Noël. L'appartement est situé dans un endroit splendide, au coeur des vignes du Ventoux et avec une vue extraordinare sur le massif des Dentelles et la plaine de Carpentras. Calme et relax absolus et de trés belles promenades dan les environs. L'appartement est correct mais humide en hiver. L'escalier interne pour se rendre dans les chambres et la salle de bain est à déconseilller pour les personnes à mobilité réduite ou les enfants en bas âge. Malheureusement, nous n avons pas pu tester la piscine qui est trés bien positionnée dans le vaste et agréable jardin exterieur. Avis (positif) aux locataires d'été! Propriétaire sympathique et disponible.

Beautiful. Great for ride bicycle on Mont Ventoux

  • 5 of 5

We loved that place. It a very ancient sheepfold on a hill with great view and total peace. The tenant is very helpful and nice and she help use discovering the beautiful region. We recommend The Pope Palace in Avignon, The Pont du Gard, Vaison la Romaine.

This was our starting point for our rides to the Mont Ventoux. We love cycling and this is an absolute must for any cyclist.

Nous sommes restés trop peu de temps

  • 5 of 5

Nous sommes restés trop peu de temps dans cette très belle maison.

Equipement complet, superbe piscine à débordement, parc avec une vue tout simplement sublime. Nous avons passé des heures à contempler la vallée et les montagnes.

La propriétaire qui est sur place est toujours disponible. Elle nous a donné de super adresses pour faire nos courses et visites de la région.

Une très bonne adresse et on espère y revenir !!!

Si vous séjournez dans ce gite, profitez-en pour gravir le Mont Ventoux en vélo. C'est une véritable experience et un souvenir inépuisable.

Most enjoyable

  • 5 of 5

We had a most enjoyable stay here last summer.It was a long drive from the south of Spain but it was nice to relax by the pool when we arrived & enjoy the local Beaumes de Venise muscat.

The property was very comfortable & relaxing & we just didnt want to leave but in less than half an hour one can drive to some very interesting sites eg. Avignon, Les Baux, Vaison or Mont Ventoux came with my oldest daughter,cousin & 2 year old & despite the age range there was something for everyone. I hope to visit again this year.

At the foot of Mont Ventoux and the Dentelles. Among the vineyards and olive groves. 10 minutes from Bedoin and Malaucène, 15 minutes from Vaison La Romaine, 5 minutes from Beaumes de Venise and Carpentras, 20 minutes from Gordes. Near the major roads, in a nice little hill, calm, without any opposite, lulled by the sound of cicadas and the scent of lavender, curry and rosemary.

The gastronomic specialties of the region are essential:

  - Wine Route: Vacqueras, Chateauneuf du Pape, Gigondas, Beaumes Muscat Venice

  - Speciality truffles from December to March with sales in the markets of Vaucluse and black truffles truffle menu in the excellent restaurants of Carpentras, Barroux, Caromb or Malaucène:

  - The olive oils

  - The calissons of Aix, the cartons of Carpentras and 13 desserts of Christmas.

Other Activities: Festival of Avignon

Ski: Mont Ventoux offers two ski resorts: Mont Serein and Chalet Reynard. December to February, the very sunny ski resorts offers beautiful trails between the trees with a fabulous view of the Alps and the valley.
