Walk to Village

Whether you are yearning to cycle the ascents of Mont Ventoux, hike through beautiful forests, sample award-winning wines or simply spend time pottering around Provençal market towns, Maison Ventoux is a delightful villa with a heated swimming pool and a particularly impressive summer kitchen within walking distance to an idyllic medieval village.

Set in a gated residential complex of nine villas, this maison is a modern holiday home, tastefully built in a Provençal style with stone flooring, attractive contemporary furnishings and great facilities. The open-plan living-dining and kitchen area is a sociable space at any time of year whether huddled up by the wood-burning fire or sliding the doors open to the poolside terrace and summer kitchen. There’s a ground-floor double with a sauna and accessible en suite shower room whilst upstairs a further three bedrooms allow up to ten guests to stay in this welcoming villa. All four bedrooms feature quality beds and air-conditioning for the comfort of guests.

Outside in the south-facing garden you’ll find pretty flowers and shrubs, an inviting heated swimming pool and a wonderful summer kitchen and al-fresco dining area. The built-in barbecue and ceramic Big Green Egg Kamado are sure to appeal to the keenest of chefs – perfect for enjoying leisurely feasts with family or friends. Appreciate the scenic views from your private garden and pool across to the nearby park, local village and beyond.  

Indeed, you only need to wander through the garden’s tall gate, across a little bridge (part of the complex’s own private park) and you will soon reach a public park with a fishing pond, playground, football field, tennis courts and more. This then leads to the picturesque local village, a characterful place that dates back to medieval times with a boulangerie for your morning pastries as well as restaurants, cafes, bike hire and an atmospheric weekly market selling all sorts of seasonal delights.

There’s an award-winning winery under a kilometre away as well as other Côtes du Ventoux vineyards across the mountain slopes, not to mention the Rhône Valley a little further afield. Visit historic local towns and villages on market day such as Vaison-la-Romaine, Carpentras and Bédoin.

Of course, this is a cyclist’s paradise with one of La Tour de France’s most iconic stages so close – hire bikes in the local village and challenge yourself. That said, you may prefer to explore some of the gentler trails of the beautiful Vaucluse region, also a dreamlike area for hiking, horse-riding and mountain biking through glorious landscapes of farmland, vineyards, dense woodland and mountains.

In the foothills of Mont Ventoux, this welcoming holiday home is located in the Vaucluse department just a short stroll from a characterful medieval village.

Maison Ventoux is part of a gated residential complex of nine villas and it has its own private parking area in front of the house. Guests access the complex via automatic gates and code access, making it a secure area.

At the back of your private garden, near the swimming pool, walk out of the tall gate, down a few steps and you will find yourself in the complex’s own fenced private park with a shared Pétanque court, stream/small river and little bridge, a quiet area which is only used by guests of the nine villas. Walk over the bridge and there is a large public park with a quiet fishing pond, off-road running trail, football field, playground and tennis courts (charges apply for some of the facilities).

Continue walking through the park and reach the village in around five minutes – perfect for fetching croissants and fresh bread each morning. It’s a charming medieval village, typically Provençal with its plane trees, narrow lanes, beautiful residences, fountains and old ramparts. There are a number of pavement cafes, restaurants and shops as well as a wonderful market on a Wednesday morning – look out for all sorts of seasonal delights including famous Ventoux cherries in the summer.

There are many walking, hiking and horse-riding trails leading from the village towards Mont Ventoux and the nearby forests, ravines and gorges. Of course, cycling and mountain biking are also extremely popular pursuits – Mont Ventoux is one of the most famous stages of the Tour de France and in 2021 the finish line was in the local village. Discover mountain biking trails across Mont Ventoux and many incredible cycling routes, not just ascending the mountain but also across the picturesque Vaucluse region. Bike rental is available in the local village.

Cyclists will also love the nearby village of Bédoin, around 13km south, with its bike shops and general cycling ambience. It’s a pretty medieval village with narrow lanes, picturesque café-terraces and stunning views from the very top.

Sample some of the Côtes du Ventoux wines produced from vineyards on the mountain slopes in the area, both near Bédoin and closer to home with an award-winning vineyard only 500m away. Furthermore, the Rhône Valley and Châteauneuf-du-Pape are around a 45-minute drive away.

Spend time visiting other handsome villages across this part of Provence including Le Barroux, Crillon-le-Brave and Sarrians. Experience authentic Provençal markets in towns such as Carpentras, Pernes-les-Fontaines and historic Vaison-la-Romaine.

Further afield, head to the famous lavender fields around Sault, just under an hour away, or visit the mesmerising Luberon region, home to idyllic villages such as Gordes and Roussillon. Canoeing along the Sorgue river is another great experience, finishing in the enchanting town of L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue, famed for its waterways, antique stores and Sunday morning brocante.

Historic Orange and the small city of Avignon are two more highlights of the Vaucluse region, both of which can be reached in less than an hour by car.

Set in the foothills of Mont Ventoux in the Vaucluse region of Provence, there is plenty to appeal to families when staying at Maison Ventoux.

Children will love the close proximity of a public park and charming village – just step out of the gate, down some steps, wander over the little bridge (crossing a small river/stream) and you will find yourself in a large public park with a playground, fishing pond, running trail, football field and tennis courts (there is a small charge to use some of the facilities). This park then leads to the medieval village with its restaurants, cafes and atmospheric weekly market, around a 5-minute walk away.

There are plenty of walking, cycling and horse-riding trails leading from the village – hiking, cycling and mountain biking are popular activities in this part of the Vaucluse region and there are trails for a variety of abilities, including those who love to be challenged.

Further south, Ventoux Adventure is also for the most active of guests with tree-top courses, cycling and walking paths plus picnic benches near a pretty lake. There are canoeing and kayaking opportunities along the Sorgue river in Fontaine-de-Vaucluse.  

Another nice trip out is the local llama farm around a 10-minute drive away, Les Lamas du Barroux, whilst young historians should look out for events taking place at the Roman theatre in nearby Vaison-la-Romaine. Around half an hour by car, train enthusiasts of all ages will appreciate the model railways at Le Jarditrain, near Carpentras.

Owner Profile

How long have you owned the property?

6 months

What was it about the property that you first fell in love with?

The stunning views on the hills and iconic mountain Mont Ventoux, drinking award winning wine at the vineyard next door, the great patio with amazing outdoor kitchen next to swimming pool, the spacious living room with view on the pool and hills, the provencal style architecture, the walk to the medieval village in 5 minutes and the uncountable picturesque villages within 15 minutes drive.

For anyone coming to stay, is there anything you suggest that they really…

- Must do?

Climb the Mont Ventoux by bike, taste wine around Chateauneuf du Pape and visit the Pope's Palace in Avignon (the largest Gothic building from the Middle Ages to be found in Europe)

- Must eat?

Eat a local côte à l’os and prepare this at you own Big Green Egg or try the famous foie gras or truffle at the many local restaurants

- Must see?

Mont Ventoux, Avignon, Isle-sur-la-Sorgue, Dentelles de Montmirail

What insider tip would you pass on about the property or the area?

Drive off-road for a few miles to the hidden and great magic vineyard of Chêne Bleu (UNESCO) for a winetasting and stop on the way back for lunch or dinner with stunning views on the Mont Ventoux in the medieval village of Le Crestet or go to the Zion (U.S.) look-a-like Gorges du Toulourenc (20 min, 12 km): located on the same road as Maison Ventoux, but then continue for 12 km. You can take a beautiful walk through the gorges (canyons) in between steep cliffs through the water in a narrow canyon.
