Nestled between the Dentelles de Montmirail and the Mont Ventoux ithis lovely family friendly and spacious house, surrounded by vineyards and its own woodlands and trails, lies c. 2 kms from the village of Le Barroux.
The house is welcoming, functional and relaxing and is a perfect get away in the heart of Provence. It is perfect for family holidays or to enjoy amongst friends as well as being great for cyclists and in particular those looking to cycle up the iconic Mt Ventoux as you can cycle from the house to the Mt Ventoux climb as well as many other lovely rides which will be suitable for all levels. It is also a great location for mountain biking with great trails which start from the house itself.
The spacious house has 6 double bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, a large lounge with open fire, a dinning room which can seat at least 8 and a well equipped kitchen with its own dining table. Outside there are landscaped gardens with olive trees and beautiful terraces which wrap around the house giving spectacular views over the Provencal landscape. One of the terraces is covered and has a large dinning table and gas fired BBQ close by (ideal for lazy lunches!), another terrace has a large u shaped contempory sofa suite and chairs with views over the vineyards and the mountains beyond (ideal for relaxing after a long lazy lunch!)
There is a large (18m x 6m) beautiful heated and gated pool open from April with its own pool house (including a table tennis table) and shaded area as well as well maintained gardens.
The interior of the house is decorated and furnished to a high standard with wifi and cable TV as well as music sound systems internally and externally on the terraces as well as by the swimming pool. There is also secure storage for bicycles.
Close to many tourist sites, it is 30 minutes from Avignon, 15 minutes from Vaison la Romaine and a 10 minute cycle ride from the typically Provençal and historic village of Le Barroux.
There is no shortage of local activities: the markets with authentic smells and flavours, coffee terraces and unmissable restaurants, delicious bakeries and pastries, as well as red, white and rosé wine tasting in the famous cellars in the vicinity including Beaumes de Venise (where our own grapes are taken after the harvest in September), Gigondas and Cairanne.
As for sports activities there is a wide choice: horse riding is nearby, cycling excursions (with several bicycle rental shops who will bring hire bikes to the house), walking footpaths accessible from the house, climbing, and of course ... the very sporty and courageous climbing of the Provençal Giant the Mont Ventoux with iconic 1912 metres climb.
In terms of culture, you will be spoiled by the many visits to the most beautiful villages with their narrow lanes, Romanesque churches, abbeys, castles, museums and the ancient sites of Vaison la Romaine, Orange, Avignon and their festivals.
We wish you a very happy holiday in our family home.
