Malaucene [1 mile]; near Vaison la Romaine [6 miles]
sleeps up to: 6 - 8
This architect-designed house at the foot of Mont Ventoux has beautiful spacious interiors, marble floors and an attractive mix of modern and traditional furnishings.
It sits on top of a small hill with the land falling away to all sides to give fabulous views through the picture windows over the provençal countryside. There is a private pool in a sheltered position next to the orchards below the house.
Just 2km away is the bustling market town of Malaucène, where there is an excellent selection of shops and restaurants, and nearby is one of the best wine routes in France with many famous 'caves'. Marked walks pass close to the house and there is even one which starts at midnight to catch the sunrise over Provence from a local view point. Avignon, with its lively summer festival, the famous fountain at Fontaine-de-Vaucluse and the elegant Roman town of Orange are all less than an hour away.
