Super séjour

  • 5 of 5

Maison avec de très belles prestations

Propriétaires accueillants

Environnement magnifique ( cadre et région )

Excellents vins à déguster

Tout est réuni pour un super séjour.

À noter : absence de micro-ondes et réseau portable et wifi peut fiable ( un peu difficile à vivre pour des ado mais une cure de désintoxication ça fait pas de mal!!).

A wonderful place

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this welcoming gite. Very spacious, nicely decorated. Very well equipped. We enjoyed the calm of it and obviously the lovely swimming-pool even if this year the weather and temperature wasn't as hot as usual. The views on the vineyard are refreshing and soothing.

The Perfect Holiday Retreat

  • 5 of 5

With stunning views over the vineyards and towards Mt Vaucluse this is the perfect holiday retreat. With its stunning location, superb infinity pool and spacious well equipped accomodation the villa was hard to leave at the end of our stay. The owners were extremely helpful and knowledgeable about the area and their personalised tour of the winery was fascinating and emphasised their passion for their wine and the hard work that they put into it.

The well equipped villa was immacculately presented and the accomodation itself very comfortable.

Visits to local markets are a must- we particularly enjoyed Vaison where you can also see the remains of the Roman town, but you need to get there early! Further afield but definitely worth visiting are the Roman sites at Orange, the Papal Palace at Avignon and the stunning Ardeche gorge where you can hire a canoe and paddle under its famour rock arch.

Cant wait to go again! Would definitety recommend it

EXCELLENT SEJOUR - très bon accueil - point de vue paradisiaque entre vignes et champs de lavande

  • 5 of 5

très belle restauration. cadre idyllique pour le repos. Logement très confortable, joliment arrangé. Un plus : linge de maison fourni.

Nous sommes repartis tous très enchantés, les petits enfants heureux d'avoir profité de la piscine à débordement, nous étions proches du mont Ventoux. Nous pouvons entre autres, déguster les vins de la propriété. Location bien située pour visiter

Merci à Anna pour nous avoir rendu ce séjour agréable. Une location comme on rêve de trouver après un long trajet. Adresse à retenir

Direkt in den Weinfeldern gelegn....

  • 4 of 5

+ Sehr schönes Haus mitgenügend Platz und allem, was man sich für die Küche wünscht. Toller Pool mit gemütlicher Terrasse und Garten. Richtig schön ruhig. Nette Vermieter! Jederzeit wieder

- Das seperate Badezimmer im Doppelzimmer war ohne Toilette, was etwas gestört hat. Zudem war es sehr warm in den Zimmern. Ließ man die Fenster offen, hatte man leichten Ärger mit den Mücken. Ein Moskito-Netz ist bei einem Besuch angeraten. Der nächste Laden ist zudem doch einige km entfernt. Wer frische Baguettes mag, muss fahren! (die Gegend ist Serpentinenreich)

Vinsobres is a pretty, historic, provençal village with a 12th century temple and an early 18th century church perched on a hilltop.

The nearest town is Nyons which is famed for its olives and olive oil, as well as its colourful and lively weekly market.

The area has a superb climate (hot, dry summers with the occasional electric storm) and amazing scenery. Anthony Peregrine described it in The Daily Telegraph as 'the south we've always longed for: of hills, mountains and lost valleys, of olives and vines, of lavender, cicadas and warm scented breezes in the late afternoon'. Places worth a visit include Vaison la Romaine, Orange, Nimes and Pont du Gard (all for their roman ruins), Montelimar (home of nougat), Avignon, the Vallée de l’Ennuyé and of course the Route de la Lavande and the 'wine route'. The Drôme Provençal is a haven for walkers and nature lovers as well as cyclists who can enjoy the challenge of the Mont Ventoux.

Other Activities: Rock Climbing
