EXPLORE THE SUN-DRENCHED HILLS, MEDIEVAL STONE VILLAGES, CLASSIC FRENCH MARKETS, LAVENDER FIELDS, RHONE VALLEY VINEYARDS AND GASTRONOMY FROM THE PERFECT BASE OF LES TOITS ROSES.
Originally the house was used to store olives for the ancient olive mill located close by, which produces world famous olive oil. This is a tranquil family-owned house in Provence, located in the heart of Mirabel-aux-Baronnies, a traditional hill-top village surrounded by beautiful countryside.
The two bedroom house, hidden down a narrow village road, is spread across four floors with traditional provencal interior, exposed-beams and working fire place. At the top of the house discover a spacious, split-level roof terrace offering spectacular views of the Baronnies hills and Mont Ventoux.
Les Toits Roses is the perfect location from which to explore all that Provence has to offer – a restful retreat from which to soak up the sun and relax, with excellent cycling and walking on the doorstep, endless activities for the whole family, superb wineries and excellent restaurants in the two nearby towns of Vaison-la-Romaine and Nyons. There are two wonderful open-air swimming pools close by as well as a number of swimming lakes and the Touleranc river for idyllic wild swimming.
Mirabel–aux-Baronnies is a very pretty village with medieval origins complete with two bakeries, a butcher, newsagent, grocery store, tourist office, art gallery, pharmacy and two cafes/bars all within a minute’s walk of the house. On Fridays the village has a small market. The popular and very attractive town of Vaison-la-Romaine with its famous medieval old town and roman ruins, restaurants, bars, shops and cafes and large Provencal market is only 9km away with Nyons, only 7km away in the opposite direction nestling in a hollow with a wonderful micro-climate, famous for its olives and lavender.
The owners are very fond of this special place and can provide plenty of information on activities, sight-seeing and the surrounding area.
