Property type house
Minimum Stay 4 nights


About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 5 plus cot

House in the heart of Bedarrides, a traditional quiet small village between Avignon and Orange, close to vineyards of Southern Rhone and Chateau Neuf du Papes. Ideal base for exploring Provence. The top of the house has been converted into a very sunny large roof terrace. It has 3 bedrooms, a kitchen, 2 bathrooms, a sitting room and shaded balcony overlooking a quiet square in the heart of the village. It sleeps 5 people (plus a cot). As it is an old house built in the traditional stone of the area, it keeps cool in the summer. There is a garage & bicycles. The village has wonderful bakeries and pastries, as well as other small shops for daily requirements. There is a children's playground near the Church a few minutes away. A river runs through the village. It has the advantage of being in a typically Provençal village which is quiet & yet has many nearby attractions including the Avignon festival and lots of children's activities from riding to adventure playground

Bedarrides is a living French town, with local shops, many bakeries and patisserie. There is one restaurant/hotel. It is on the river Ouveze. There is a weekly market by the river and there are boat trips in the summer.

The house has been recently renovated with a new roof terrace and bathroom.

great location in a very quiet & friendly village

  • 4 of 5

The house is in a great location, a small, quiet village close to Avignon and within short driving distances to many places to visit in the Provence region. The neighbors were extremely friendly and very welcoming!

The house was the perfect size for our family. The house is well maintained, clean and well equipped with essentials and more! We enjoyed using the bikes to explore the village, the beach chairs were perfect on the rooftop terrace and the assortment of books were great to go through at night (without a tv and internet, it was a nice break to be disconnected!). We loved how there was an incredible boulangerie just around the corner from the house. We happened to be visiting the Provence region during an extreme heat wave, so it was a bit hot at night, but we stayed cool by staying out on the rooftop terrace.

The owner was incredibly helpful (especially with all the information provided about the village and the house itself) and responds very quickly to inquiries. It was a wonderful stay for our family in Bedarrides!

Stay in village house in Bedarrides, Provence

  • 5 of 5

Really liked the house- great location overlooking the square. Bedarrides is a really charming little town with the advantage that it is off the tourist trail- very nice to come back to after a day sight seeing! Very friendly people which made everyday things like shopping a real pleasure.There is an excellent small market on Monday mornings and a farmers market on Friday evenings, in addition to small local shops; and an excellent newly-opened restaurant called the Presqu'ile. We particularly enjoyed the local boat trip with our own 'eco guide'- a most interesting and informative excursion. We also enjoyed going to the wine museum in Chateauneuf du Pape just up the road from Bedarrides- very interesting in itself, and followed by informal tasting sessions after the visit - the wine was so delicious that we came home with quite a few bottles! All in all a great holiday and very well placed for visiting the major tourist sites.

Great apartment in a lovely village.

  • 4 of 5

We were traveling with my wife,myself and two college age girls. The size was just perfect for us. Oldest daughter upstairs, youngest daughter downstairs, and my wife and myself in the master. Plus there was room when a college friend of the girls stopped by a couple days…Nice having two bathrooms, and a nice shower and the apartment was clean and nice. Location in the Provence was a great as we were able to do day trips to Avignon, Arles, Vaison LA Romaine, L'isle Sur la Sourge etc. easily.

-Very happy and everyone said that they would go back.

Ideal Stay

  • 5 of 5

This is an excellent house. The property was clean and clearly cared for. It was worth visiting to view the library of books alone.

The balcony and roof terrace are great outdoor spaces. To have the use of bikes from the house to move around the vineyards is perfect. Bedarrides is tourist free yet Avignon, Mont Ventoux, Sault, The Ardeche valley, the Nesque and Toulourenc Gorges, Orange, Chateauneuf-du-pape and the Isle sur la Sorgue market (Sunday) is near. This would be a great place to come and write, swim (see the fabulous public pool at Chateauneuf-Du-Pape) and relax on the terrace. One of the cafes in the village serves an excellent three course lunch and there are a couple of nice bars for a six o'clock aperitif.

The owner is an efficient and a kind person. This is a perfect getaway place.

The house at Rue Des Tisserands is highly recommended.

Village House in Provence

  • 4 of 5

Had a fantastic week in a nice house within a lovely setting. The village is small but conveniently located close to areas such as Chateauneuf du Pape, Avignon & Mont Ventoux. However, we would recommend hiring a car to allow you to fully explore some amazing places. We would highly recommend the house for both a relaxing & sightseeing holiday. The large roof terrace is a great feature of the property and we spent many an afternoon there eating, drinking and relaxing. The owners of the property were very friendly and helpful and will definitely be coming back. Thanks for a lovely week!

Delightful village and house in Provence

  • 4 of 5

The village of Bedarrides is perfect for visiting the wonderful small towns and villages near by. We especially enjoyed wine tasting at Gigondas, Chateau neuf de Pape and Vacquegras. Our favourite towns were Seguret; a very pretty town with little shops tucked away, just perfect for brousing around and enjoying the cloudless skies and barmy weather and also Vaison-la-Romaine where we bought lavender bouquets from a man sat outside making them.

Cycling is an absolute dream, fairly flat, hardly any traffic, beautiful scenery and glorious sunshine, plus at the tourist office in Chateau neuf de Pape there are free cycled guides of marked roads you can follow. My husband also enjoyed cycling up Mount Ventoux - a must if you follow the Tour de France.

The house is perfect for walking to the boulangeries - there are 3! and we also loved to buy homemade pizzas from around the corner which we ate, sat on the roof terrace with a botttle of French (of course!) Rose and listened to the Swallows above our heads!

We will definately return as there is so much to explore and enjoy.

Car: recommended

The house is in the old walled centre on a quiet square in a typically French village. It is set on a river and there is a weekly market and also boat trips from the village. It is in the wine-growing region of the Southern Rhone, about 5km from the centre of Chateauneuf-du-Pape, and 5-10km from such villages as Vayqueras, Gigondas, Sablet, Seguret. It is close to the lovely Dentelles de Montmirail for beautiful mountain walks and even rock climbing. Avignon and Orange are both also a short drive away. There are also a lot of children's activities nearby, such as a zoo, adventure playgrounds, water parks, boat trips on the Rhone and in the Camargue by the sea, a mountain steam railway, castles such as Aigues Mortes and a crocodile farm. The food is outstanding in this area as it is so fertile that most of it is grown locally. The area has been inhabited for years leaving Roman towns such as Arles and Nimes, Romanesque Churches and continues to be a favourite due to its beauty and amazing natural light.
