There’s a welcoming owl near the entrance of this superbly restored farmhouse, completely tucked away in the Vaucluse countryside, a land of truffles, lavender, honey and good wine. Here you are in the midst of glorious plains of fields and vineyards yet not still not far from a picturesque village and all the conveniences of a small town.

Set in a huge estate, the living area, terrace and pool overlook a swathe of vineyards which lead the eye across woodland towards gently rolling tree clad hills. You’ll just want to linger with a glass of wine on the terrace or by the sparkling pool and take in the beauty of this location.

Inside is tastefully furnished, light and modern but with a few pieces such as the bookcase to remind you that this house has a history. Elegant long tables inside and out easily seat twelve people and in addition there is a characterful small table for four in the dining room which might once have been for the children of the house. The comfortable five upstairs bedrooms over two wings are rather excitingly accessed by two separate sets of stairs.

When you are ready to leave your country idyll, head towards Valréas, capital of the Enclave des Papes which has many beautiful houses as well as opportunities for shopping. There are so many interesting towns and villages to explore nearby, most with a rich historical past and several offering opportunities for wine tasting - indeed, this whole area is a paradise for wine aficionados.

For a touch of wilderness, the Baronnies Provençales Regional Nature Park is an amazing area of unspoilt nature with many protected plant and animal species. Here you can enjoy landscapes of limestone mountains, woodlands, lavender fields, olive groves, orchards, oak and pine forests as well as the many picturesque villages to be found here, such as Venterol and Vinsobres.

The whole region provides plenty of opportunity for outdoor and family activities from riding, hiking, canoeing, mountain climbing in the Dentelles de Montmirail and mountain biking in the hills to serious cycling up famous Mont Ventoux.

La Chouette is tucked away in a rural location in the Vaucluse region of Provence, a short drive from a picturesque village and in the midst of glorious plains of fields and vineyards, a land of truffles, lavender, honey and good wine.

Nearby Valréas (5km), the capital of the Enclave des Papes, has many beautiful houses built in the 17th and 18th centuries as well as shopping opportunities. At the end of June the Festival of Petit Saint Jean is celebrated here when more than 350 people in traditional dress parade through the street accompanied by plenty of music and dancing.

Vaison-la-Romaine (24km) has a rich historical past with an outdoor Roman theatre as well as plenty of cafes, restaurants, shops, bakeries and supermarkets. This whole region is a paradise for wine aficionados with local Côte du Rhône varietals from Vaison and charming villages such as Roaix and Cairanne, well worth visiting for a tasting.

The Baronnies Provençales Regional Nature Park (35km) is an amazing 1,800 km² of unspoilt nature with 2,000 plant and around 200 protected animal species. Here you can enjoy landscapes of limestone mountains, woodlands, lavender fields, olive groves, orchards, oak and pine forests as well as the picturesque villages to be found here, such as Venterol (15km) and Vinsobres (16km).

Within the park, the small town of Nyons (19km) is renowned for its black olives with its Place des Arcades dating back to 1300, just perfect for a quiet drink. A famous Romanesque bridge arches high above the river Eygues - climb the astonishing Randonne Tower and enjoy views across the rooftops and the river.

Montelimar (39km) isn’t exactly a tourist destination but it is the perfect spot for those with a sweet tooth! It has been the home of French nougat since the 1700s, now made in modern factories as well as small ateliers using the old methods. Tours explain how it is manufactured and, most importantly, allow you to sample a range of the confectionery.

There are plenty of outdoor activities to be enjoyed nearby, hiking, horse- riding in Valréas (5km), kayaking at Sorgue (48km), mountain biking between Valréas (5km) and Grignan (14km) and, for more intrepid cyclists, the famous route up Mont Ventoux (54 km). There’s mountain climbing in the lacy peaks of Dentelles de Montmirail (41km) but if you are just looking for a leisurely game of golf, head towards the club at Orange (34km) or Golf De La Drôme (25km) a little nearer.

Region

The Provençal way of life is one that’s deeply tempting for anyone who’s been feeling the need to get away from it all. This is a place where the Mediterranean weather turns fields of corn and lavender into picture-perfect backdrops, where you can sip your locally bought wine and enjoy the landscapes before heading out and tackling them head-on with a range of great activities for families, groups of friends and adventurous foodies. Better yet, our range of villas in Provence and chateaux and holiday homes in the Côte d’Azur make the perfect base to explore this enchanting region!

Provence is a great place for families with kids of all ages. There are just so many lovely villages and towns to discover where you can visit the markets, try some new foods or just walk around soaking up the atmosphere.

Pony lovers in the family will be pleased to hear that there is an equestrian centre at Valréas (5km). There are plenty of opportunities for all kinds of adventure in the region such as kayaking at Sorgue (48km) or Pont du Gard (70km) and many exciting activities at the Oxygène Adventure Park at Vaison (25km).

All train lovers will just love the model railway, the JardiTrain, to be found south of Carpentras (43km) while younger children will enjoy exploring Avignon (63km) on the little train that takes you across the city including the famous bridge - you can also take a boat trip on the Rhône. 

If you can forget about the dentist for a few hours, Montelimar (39km) has been the home of French nougat since the 1700s, now made in modern factories as well as small ateliers using the old methods. Take a tour to see how it is made and, most importantly, sample a range of the sweets.
